Does the intervention hurt?
As much you will feel some discomfort. WE must not forget that the implants should be performed by expert odontoestomatologist specialized in these techniques. Remember that the person to try your specific case must be n Maxillofacial Oral Surgeon.
Our surgeons are specialized in microsurgical techniques, also known as minimally invasive surgery that enables effective placement of implants without pain. In most casesd you feel and little noise and water, but no discomfort.
Our specialist will explain what the most appropriate technique is for your case, and justify the choice of it. Today the treatments we do in our clinics are completely safe and minimally traumatic.
Remember that most of the time when a “wisdom tooth” is extracted the trouble is comparatively much higher. In addition, if necessary, we would put at your disposal a team of anesthesiologists who may apply a small dose of sedative to completely eliminate your anxiety and nervousness and make treatment more bearable.
Will I feel pain after?
Pain, pain, pain what is said, no. In most cases you only feel little discomfort and / or mild swelling of the area, which can be eliminated with a simple painkiller.
Microsurgical techniques have allowed postoperative treatments of implants to be very mild.
However, each patient is different and so is each treatment. Not even the same implant. The doctor will explain in detail how your postoperative care will be and specific care you should consider.
Are implants forever?
Dental implants are one of the dental treatments with durability. No one can determine how long your implants will last. In medicine you cannot guarantee anything with unerring security 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 implants will last many years, perhaps forever.
How many implants need to attach to prosthesis?
Our treatments are entirely personal.
As explained above, the titanium implant is a relatively rigid screw that serves to support the masticator forces of the prosthesis. There are several factors that will determine the number of implants you need.
Hence the importance of a review of your case by the surgeon and his team is needed to determine the procedure to be followed.
Among the factors to consider are age, bone type, prosthesis type, masticatory force, hygiene
It is important to accept that each patient is difference and requires a specific treatment that will be determined by your surgeon.
What type of prosthesis exists?
There is a lot of information in this section, but summarizing, we could divide the prosthesis implant into two types:
- 1. Fixed
- 2. Semi fixed (removable)
Depending on the characteristics of each case we can determine what is the most appropriate for you.
Do the prosthesis break?
The materials we use for treatment are highly sophisticated. Of course, they require careful and precise maintenance and sometimes require adjustments necessary repairs for continuous functioning. Please note that your prosthesis “works” almost nonstop day and night and logically that causes wear and tear. In most cases, we look for a provisional period to make sure your prosthetics works properly. Once we are sure prosthesis works properly we permanently fit them in your mouth.
Remember to keep your implants in perfect condition:
- Maintain good hygiene of your gums
- Have checkups twice a year
Will food enter the prosthesis?
Prosthesis on the implants is fixed with screw structures that need space for adjustment. Like natural teeth, dentures also trap ALL food, which is why tea patient should be very diligent in hygiene thus avoiding gum infections.
How long does treatment last?
As discussed above once cannot determine with certainty how long a treatment will last because factors sometime appear that can delay the process. But generalizing on can determine the following:
1st phase: Implant placement ( 1 appointment)
– 2-6 months later –
2nd phase: PROSTHESIS CONNECTION (2 -4 visits) which takes between 2 weeks and 1 ½ months.
How do we work? Computer guided surgery (this can be considered as to who Pablo Aviles is? a bonus track)
With the exclusive technology we use, the planning tool allows you to place implants virtually on the computer. Unify diagnosis by means of digital photography, intraoral three-dimensional scanner and radiology.
To do this, a patient is asked to have a radiographic study is conducted by an oral scanner which will allow you to obtain a three dimensional image of the patients jaw.
They can visualize how the implants and prosthetics placed will look like before they start. Thus a more efficient result is achieved.
- Radiographic study by oral scanner – 3 D maxillary image
- Accurate surgical templates
- Custom design crown- placement
