At most you will feel some discomfort. We must not forget that the placement of implants must be carried out by odontostomatologists who are experts in these techniques. Remember that it must be an Oral or Maxillofacial Surgeon who treats your specific case.
Our surgeons are specialized in microsurgery techniques, also called minimally invasive surgery that allows the efficient placement of your implants with almost no sensation. In most cases you will only feel a little noise and water, but no discomfort.
Our doctors will explain to you which is the most appropriate technique for your case, and will justify your choice. Today the treatments we perform in our clinics are totally safe and minimally traumatic.
Remember that most of the times that a “wisdom tooth” is extracted, the discomfort is comparatively much higher. In addition, if necessary, we will put at your disposal a team of anesthetists who can apply a small dose of sedative that will completely eliminate your anxiety and nervousness and make the treatment more bearable.
Pain, pain, what is called pain, no. In most cases, you will only feel a little discomfort and/or mild inflammation in the area, which can be eliminated with a simple painkiller.
Microsurgery techniques have allowed the postoperative period of implant treatments to be very very mild.
However, each patient is different and so is each treatment. One implant is not the same as seven. The doctor will explain in detail what your postoperative period will be like and what specific care you should take into account.
Dental implants are one of the most durable dental treatments.
No one can determine how long your implants will last. In medicine, nothing can be stated with certainty, because the human body is sometimes unpredictable. We can only accept the statistics of thousands of treatments performed before yours.
And these statistics tell us that most of your implants will last for many years, perhaps forever.
Our treatments are totally personal.
As we have explained previously, the titanium implant is a relatively rigid screw that will serve to support the masticatory forces of the prostheses. There are different factors that will determine the number of implants you need.
Hence the importance of an analysis of your case by the surgeon and his team, to determine the procedure to follow.
Among the factors to take into account we find: Age – Type of bone – Type of prosthesis – Chewing Force – Hygiene…
It is important to accept that each patient is different and needs a specific treatment that will be determined by your surgeon.
There is a lot of information in this section, but summarizing a lot we could divide implant prostheses into two types:
2. Semi-fixed (removable)
Depending on the characteristics of each case we can determine which is the most appropriate for your case.
The materials we use for treatment are highly sophisticated.
Of course, they require meticulous and precise maintenance and sometimes require adjustments and forced repairs to keep them working properly. Keep in mind that your prostheses “work” almost non-stop day and night, and that causes logical wear.
In most cases we fix your prosthesis provisionally for a period to be sure that it works correctly. Once we are sure, we fix it definitively.
Remember, to keep your implants in perfect condition:
Maintain good gum hygiene
Go to 2 reviews a year.
Implant prostheses are structures fixed with screws that need spaces for their adjustment.
Like natural teeth, ALL dentures retain food, which is why the patient must be very delicate in their hygiene and thus avoid gum infections.
As we have previously commented, it is not possible to determine with certainty how long a treatment will last, because sometimes factors appear that can delay the process.
But generalizing we can determine the following:
1st phase: IMPLANT PLACEMENT (1 APPOINTMENT)
– WE WAIT 2-6 MONTHS –
2nd phase: PROSTHESIS CONNECTION (2-4 APPOINTMENTS) – (BETWEEN 2 WEEKS AND 1 MONTH AND A HALF)
With the exclusive technology we use, the planning tool allows you to virtually place the implants on the computer. It unifies the diagnosis through digital photography, intraoral scanning and three-dimensional radiology.
To do this, the patient is asked to undergo a radiographic study using an oral scanner, which will allow us to obtain a three-dimensional image of the patient’s maxilla.
Computer-aided design makes it possible to create an exact surgical template to place the implants with greater security and subsequent placement of the crown that has previously been custom-designed.
It will be possible to visualize how the implants and the prosthesis will be placed before starting. Thus, a more efficient result is achieved.
