Dental Implants Cases

An upper left central tooth had an old Crown and a fractured root. The tooth was extracted and a Zirconia implant was implanted, then
restored with a ceramic crown. Also, the adjacent tooth was also restored with a Crown over the natural root.

 

To know more about dental implants, we recommend the following video.

 

Dental implants are small post, usually made of titanium, to replace the root of missing teeth. They are inserted in your jaw during a minor surgical procedure that takes place right in the dental office. After the implant has been placed in your jaw bone, a completely lifelike prosthetic new tooth is attached either that day, or after a healing period

Just like you care for regular teeth. Although implant teeth will never decay, the gum tissue around them need the proper care to ensure they last a lifetime. Also, it is very important to have regular checkups, to make sure the optimal health of the implant

Yes, You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth with implants. You do not even need an implant per every missing tooth. As few as 2 implants, can support or stabilize a removable denture, while as few as 4 implants can provide a full set of top or bottom teeth that are permanent. Talk to your doctor to understand what’s the best option for you..

In general, everyone is a candidate for dental implants. However, there are specific conditions that need to be carefully assessed beforehand as they might make the treatment more complex. Arthritis medication, diabetes, smoking and high cholesterol are risk markers that need to be discussed with the patient and the general practitioner in order to decide the best course of action..

First of all, you should attend an initial consultation with the specialist. After reviewing your case and medical history, he will order the specific tests that he needs in order to plan a successful surgery and ensure you get not only the best functional but aesthetics results. Basic test will include an X-ray and a CT scan. This will allow to check the amount of bone available. Based on your medical history, some blood test might be also required.

Yes, you can take a dental implant. You have two options to solve the lack of bone: Dodge the area where it should be placed the dental implant (but due to the lack of bone is not viable), and place the implant where there is bone. The other option is to perform surgeries for bone REGENERATION, which consists in the realization of previous surgical techniques to increase the bone volume and thus the implant will be fixed in the place where the natural root.

The regeneration bone is in the recovery natural of the bone lost after the extractions tooth. When we lose teeth, the bone that the sustained is reabsorbed. With the feedback we can return to the status original. Today, there are materials osteoconductive favouring the recovery of AVOIDING the use of bone GRAFTS bone from another area of the body, surgery much more complicated than the bone regeneration operation. To place an implant must be enough bone to grasp it firmly and prevent future problems. Our recommendation as specialized implant Center, is to carry out techniques of bone regeneration when they are needed.

There is no age limit. Precisely one of the major applications of dental implants is to improve the quality of life of elderly patients. Obviously to young patients they must wait for bone growth is complete. In general from 16 years in women and 18 men.

Really not. In most cases, local anesthesia is used as interventions are quick and painless. In more complex interventions or for peace of mind of the patient used sedation consent.

Once again, this depends greatly on the type of treatments, but the minimum will be 2 visits

Because all the dental implants are not equal. Mainly, the cost to the patient of an implant dental 3 factors:

  • The quality (brand) of the implant will be placed you.
  • The fees provided by the specialist for providing this service based on their experience and level of training.
  • Infrastructure and technology provided by the clinical Centre of implantology.

Your doctor will clearly outline to you the risks involved depending on your specific case. Some cases do have a higher failure potential, but your doctor should clearly explained this before the surgery.In case of losing an implant in a short time which is one of the possible complications of treatment it is possible to perform the reinstallation of implants, more however if it is necessary to perform some procedure to retrieve or form new bone with the mood improve the expectations of the next treatment the patient must bear the cost of materials of grafting and regeneration. The cost of the new implant and specialist fees borne by our clinic.

In most cases, and with a careful surgeon dentist, inflammation is minimal after placement of the dental implant.
In cases of need important bone regeneration techniques may be an inflammation that can last for about 24 to 48 hours.
Your surgeon will give you instructions to follow, including type of recommended diet.
