What are dental implants?

Dental implants are considered one of the best solutions to replace missing teeth. They are surgical titanium fixtures that we place into the bone of the jaws and act as a replacement of the root of one or several missing teeth.

Dental implants are the closest treatment to mimicking a natural tooth because it does not affect at all the nearby teeth and has great stability. Nowadays, the success rate for dental implants is close to 97%.

Types of dental implants

If you have lost a tooth, don’t hesitate to visit us. We will take all of the necessary tests to confirm that you can have an implant, including oral examination, cancer screening, X-rays and/or 3D scan to provide you with a bespoke treatment plan individualised for you.

How does it work?

First, we simulate the tooth root with a biocompatible titanium structure that is inserted into the bone. After 3 to 9 months of healing process (depending on the case), we will attach a crown, resistant and natural looking, which will allow to replace your tooth without touching the neighbour teeth, preventing their mobility, facilitating chewing and improving aesthetics.

This is a simple process that will allow you to recover the functionality of your teeth and will recover your self-confidence.

If you have lost several teeth, one of the solutions is a bridge over dental implants. This treatment is carried out when there is a loss of two or more teeth.

Implant-supported bridge procedure

We anchor two biocompatible titanium dental implants to the bone that will act as roots, firmly supporting the chewing forces.

On these structures we attach a fixed prosthesis of three teeth, made of metal, ceramic or Zirconia, to provide your new teeth with complete functionality and aesthetics.

Implant-supported fixed prosthesis

If you are missing all of your teeth, there are different procedures to replace all the missing teeth with implants both with permanent and removable teeth.

Implant-supported fixed full arch bridges

On your jaws, we implant eight biocompatible titanium implants into the bone, which will hold the prosthesis in place and adequately distribute the chewing forces. On these anchors, we attach each implant bridge separated between them. Made of metal and ceramic or zirconia, the result is a completely natural look with greater strength and durability.

An Overdenture is a solution that offers you security and simplicity. This type of removable denture is anchored on the implants to improve support, retention and stability. This is the ideal solution for patients that have been wearing dentures for long time and now those dentures move and are uncomfortable and cannot stay in place even with the use of adhesive cream.

Overdentures on implants procedure

We place four biocompatible titanium dental implants along the gum, simulating the function of the dental roots, securing the denture to the bone.

On these “new roots”, we attach a metal structure (which can be a bar or little attachments) on which the full denture will “click” in place. As a result, you will have the peace of mind and aesthetics of a fixed denture, with the freedom to easily remove, reposition and clean your prosthesis

When having no teeth has caused bone and gums loose, and you do not want something removable, the most appropriate solution is a hybrid bridge screwed into the implants.

Procedure for an implant-supported hybrid bridge

Firstly, we will place six implants on your bone that will act as a fixed base for the prosthesis. After the healing process, we create a bridge with a metal base and resin or porcelain structure to the implants, restoring all of the teeth and gums.

When the bone that has to support the implants is not enough, we can restore it by performing a bone graft with biomaterials. This treatment will allow us to place dental implants despite the lack of bone.
