Implants are screw-shaped pieces that are used to replace lost teeth, provide additional retention for dentures when the gum weakens, etc.
These implants have been a revolution in dentistry. They work by the principle of osseointegration, which means the bone and the titanium in the implants “fuse” together after the implant is installed.
The surgery is entirely painless, and depending on the surgeon’s skills and the difficulty of the particular case can take anywhere from half an hour to several hours if implants for a complete maxilla must be installed.
New techniques also let us treat some cases that not long ago would have been doomed to wearing removable dentures. These techniques require the intervention of a maxillo-facial specialist in order to lay the groundwork for implant installation when bone is scarce, by using regenerative techniques or bone grafts.
Our implants are made out of pure titanium, have passed the highest quality controls demanded by the Ministry of Health, and are manufactured by long-standing and reliable manufacturers, ensuring the availability of replacement pieces if they become necessary in the future for minor repairs in the prosthesis.
The most important part when it comes to implant treatment is getting a proper diagnosis and detailed planning, in order to fulfill the client’s expectations.Some patients that wanted an implant years ago but couldn’t, could now be treated thanks to these new bone regeneration and preparation techniques.
