Dental Implantology Treatment
Our implant specialists can make an evaluation at no cost to find out if you are a candidate to get a dental implant which consists in placing a biocompatible attachment on your teeth to substitute the missing dental piece, after that we place a crown on your tooth to keep the function in your mouth just like a natural tooth.
What is the procedure to place a dental implant?
Science and technology have advanced a lot since the last few decades. And that has enabled us to receive predictable and durable cosmetic dentistry procedures. On top of that, dentists are actively choosing conservative techniques to preserve the natural appearance of teeth as much as possible. This is why people are actively looking to get different cosmetic treatments done including smile makeovers. These procedures boost the self-confidence of an individual and help him or her in dealing with the challenges of life in a more positive manner.
The dental implant mimics the natural shape and color of the tooth, it requires waiting for the implant to be perfectly integrated into the bone and gum. Recovery time depends on each patient and how the body reacts, between 3 and 6 months is the time we indicate for the patient to recover and the implant is osseointegrated correctly in order to continue with the treatment. During that time, follow the hygiene recommendations indicated by the professional to avoid complications. You can wear a provisional prosthesis.
It is very important to keep in mind that correct hygiene is still very important even if the new dental piece is “fake” since it can cause infections like normal teeth. The risk of infection is higher in smokers and people who have a compromised immune system. That is why we recommend that you visit us at least once every 6 months.
