Dental implant

It is a specialty of dentistry that has as its “mission” to return to the patient teeth fixed and able to recover the masticatory function by placing roots in titanium fixed to the bone of the jaws. Through a simple and painless surgical act returns to the patient’s teeth lost for some time. Restores your oral health and returns her self-esteem.

Dental implants are used to:

1. Recompose absence of teeth
When we have dental, single or multiple absences may occur, in addition to cosmetic changes, the movement of other teeth and this can lead to breakdowns in the bite, damaging the act of chewing and smile harmony.

2. Replace dentures (dentures) for fixed prostheses

The denture user often complains that its not firm prosthesis on the gums and that hurts.

These can be completely exchanged by aids which adhere completely to the implants.

3. Assist in the retention of dentures (dentures)

In many cases, the person can continue using the denture, but these may be made so that the abotoem implants greatly increased fixation.


Immediate load
The conventional protocol for carrying out work with implants consisted initially placing the implant surgery and then only after 4 to 6 months of healing of implants, teeth were installed. Today, in most cases, we make the installation teeth immediately after the placement of the implant surgery, this technique being called implants “immediate loading”.

Extraction and immediate implementation
Another new possibility scientifically proven and the long list of successfully completed cases is the placement of implants immediately to tooth extraction, and may be installed dental piece after this surgery.

Short implants
In cases where the client requires the placement of implants in areas where bone structure is unfavorable, we can now rely on short implants (long implants), which are developed especially to be placed in these areas. So many times, the patient became independent more of the previous bone grafts and can rely on these resistant implants.

Implants uncut and no stitches: surgery planned by computer
The main objective of this technique is to minimize the discomfort caused by traditional surgery, because through it you can place the implants without the need to make incisions (cuts) in the gums or suturing (give points), making it faster and less painful surgery.

Synthetic bone grafts
In several cases, bone graft surgery is necessary. But now, in most cases, we can use the bioengineering innovations, making use of synthetic bone substitute materials. Through these, we can leave the customer’s need for removal of bony parts of other places for placement in the areas of interest.

What are the chances of the implant to work?
It can be stated that 95% of cases, the implants are not lost in the first years of use, they will last a lifetime. Studies have shown that the implants have success rates above 93% in the upper jaw and 97% at the bottom.
