What is a Dental Implant?

Real Size Dental Implant

Dental Implants are structures designed to replace a missing tooth root. Are made from Titanium and placed in the maxillary and mandibular bones, by a generally simple surgical operation. Once the implant is osseo-integrated into the bone, a crown is specially made and installed to restore the tooth.

Titanium has proven to be a material capable of binding to the bone through a process called Osseointegration. It does not cause allergies or reactions in the body, making it a completely safe material.
The lack of a tooth or more teeth is a problem that can affect not only the function of chewing and phonation of a patient, but most importantly, can affect a person's self-esteem and thus her/his social life in all aspects .
On the structure of the implants are placed supra-structures which allow to rehabilitate the function and aesthetics, and GIVE YOU BACK YOUR SMILE! :)

What Advantages do Dental Implants have?

When comparing a cemented bridge with a Dental Implant at replacing a lost tooth:

Dental Implants avoid grinding healthy side teeth, or in cases where side adjacent teeth have some degree of bone loss, with Dental Implants, teeth do not get overloaded nor depend on tooth viability for keeping the replaced tooth in place.

Comparing Dental Implants with a Removable Denture, they have the great advantage of being fixed non removable.

Three teeth replacement:

All teeth replacement:

What is the process for placing Dental Implants?

There are four treatment steps:
Diagnosis: Evaluation of different surgical and prosthetic aspects, this will require different diagnostic methods (Study models, Panoramic X-Rays, Computerized Tomography, etc.).
Surgery: The placement of implants is performed by a surgery in which a place is prepared by a small drill in the bone to accommodate the implant. It's performed using only local anesthesia and post-op simptoms are very mild or none in most cases.
Prosthesis: Between the implant placement and receiving the teeth there is a period of 3-6 months depending on the quantity and quality of bone in each case (osseointegration phase). First provisional teeth are placed and then the final definitive prosthesis replaces missing teeth.
Maintenance: Patient must maintain good oral hygiene and seek regular checks every 3-12 months. Implants do not require a special hygiene or different from that of natural teeth.

Is there a risk of rejection?

No, whenever a Dental Implant does not osseointegrate, it's not that the body has rejected it, but because of problems of quantity or quality of the bone. When a Dental Implant is lost it can be replaced by another and it usually works without problems. The implant success rate is 97-98%, making them one of the most predictable treatments in the world of medicine.

Can I receive Dental Implants if I have Periodontitis (Gum's disease)?

YES! Periodontal patients are who most implants receive. Periodontitis must and should be stabilized and controlled and patient must maintain an adequate level of oral hygiene. If implants are placed in a patient with untreated periodontitis, there is a risk of perimplantitis (Inflammation around the implant and future loss) therefore periodontal patients with implants should go to higienist maintenance more frequently than patients with no periodontal implants.
