Implants chosen especially for you, with computerized analysis through a TAC (Tomography Axial Computerized) dental scan to adapt perfectly to your mouth.
Our Dental Clinic uses computerized digital technology for prior planning of the best possible bone area for the placement of the implant, also assisting in the correct inclination and angle of the implant.
The implant consists of a titanium structure, which replaces the root of a tooth and works as the support for the prosthesis (Crown), which is cemented or screwed permanently onto it.
Dental implants are the best way to replace the one or more missing teeth, which ensures not only the aesthetic side of a smile, as well as encourages the correct masticatory function (biting), being the more reliable alternative to conventional dentures.
The implant treatment consists of two distinct steps. In the first, surgical procedures are performed for the installation of the titanium implant within the bone of the mandible or maxilla. These implants remain covered and protected by the gums for a period of 4-6 months for healing, depending on the type of bone. After this period, the prosthetic step is performed, in which the implant is exposed for impressions and a dental laboratory is involved to make the prosthesis.
The success of the implants depends on a good case planning, an assessment of the general health conditions of the patient and a study of complementary examinations.
It is important that the patient knows that, after completing the treatment, periodic maintenance is essential, the interval varies according to each individual case so that the implant is always checked for their occlusion and health of the support tissues (bone and gums).
Modern implants (Titanium-resistant material), which are designed to withstand the masticatory functions for many years, can, in some cases, present complications due to issues that arise from the body itself around the implants and as a result one may lose the implant. These situations occur due to:
• Masticatory overload on the implant;
• Poor hygiene on implant and neighbouring teeth;
• Problems with the prosthetics that result in overload.
Therefore, it is important to point out that implants represent great reliability, depending not only the on competence and capability of the professionals involved, but also on the collaboration of the patient in each step of the treatment and throughout the individual’s life, maintaining the care required for the healthy survival of their implants and teeth.
