How is the dental implant procedure carried out?

Placing dental implants allows us to give you back your lost pieces, and together with them, your smile. Through this procedure we solve aesthetic, functional and self-esteem problems. The dental pieces return to their original position quickly and painlessly.

The implants employed are made of a material called titanium, the noble nature of which is rarely rejected by the human body, with a very high success rate, of 98%.

Implants work like natural pieces; they look the same as natural teeth and do not require removal, even for cleaning, which is simple and allows the use of dental floss.

The procedure is done in two phases:

Phase 1: Surgery for placement of the implant

This is an outpatient procedure and takes one to two hours or more, depending on the number of implants to be placed. Four months following the procedure you are ready for the next phase. During the process the patient must wear provisional implants to cover and protect the pieces while waiting for the definitive ones to be ready.

Phase 2: Restoration of the implant

This is the crown which goes on top of the implant, bridge or hybrid prosthesis. The definitive dental piece is placed in this phase.

This process takes 8 to 10 working days depending on the type of restoration selected for completing the restoration. It is possible to carry out this phase under sedation, at an additional cost.

Restoration varies depending on the type of case. It is worth mentioning that if several dental pieces are missing, an implant is not required for every lost piece, for it is possible to make bridges on top of the total implants or prostheses.

Ideally, an assessment appointment is made for considering the case and providing a more detailed budget.
