Dental implants are additions, such as artificial roots, created to replace missing teeth or lost for any reason, able to integrate up to the point of live healthily and totally natural with the rest of the tissues of the mouth.

There currently are manufactured preferably chemically pure titanium and act as substitutes for the dental roots. After their placement within the maxilla or the jaw serve for that, once osteointegrated, give support to the new artificial teeth that Iran attached to them.

Each implant, as we have already discussed, makes the times of artificial root on which will seat the crown or dental prosthetics and in him we can distinguish, in the likeness of the natural tooth:

* Mounting or dental implant (portion that remains under the gum)

* Pillar transepitelial (portion of the mounting that emerges in the mouth)

* Crown or prosthesis (covering the pillar and is appreciable in the mouth)

How is subject the dental implant in the bone?

By a biological process known as osseointegration, described by Professor Bränemark in the years 50, whereby the Agency establishes a direct connection between the bone and the surface of the implant.

When has occurred the osseointegration the implant is firmly attached to the bone and can withstand a prosthesis to cope with all the functional and aesthetic requirements as if it were a natural tooth healthy. Another feature of the osseointegration is to be very stable in time so that these treatments offer satisfactory results that can be enjoyed for many years.

What are dental implants?

We opted for the placement of dental implants when it is intended:

Refit teeth with stability similar or even higher than that of the natural lost, by avoiding the use of adjacent teeth. Rehabilitate the mouth functional and aesthetically with quality and precision.

Obtain an anchor for the mobile dental prosthesis, providing the stability required to give comfort and safety, as if they were fixed prostheses.

Ensure that the bone of the jaw maintains its role and do not lose volume by reabsorption, avoiding the deterioration of the tissues and the appearance of aging face by formation of folds and wrinkles.

Enable anchors that permit other orthodontic treatments such as or orthopedic and that another way, at times would be impossible to perform.

How do I restore the missing teeth followed?

When you have lost several teeth, whether before or after, and the stretch without teeth is small, you can replenish the absences through a fixed prosthesis called bridge that can be supported in their natural teeth. But if you want to avoid tallarlos, it is more advisable to place multiple implants in the tier without teeth and on them to support the bridge.

When still having natural teeth, holes without teeth are so great that discourage the placement of a bridge supported in the own patient's teeth, you will need to choose between a removable denture with hooks, retainers and even palate, accepting the inconveniences that these types of prostheses involve, or opt for the placement of several implants to withstand the bridges.

Today, in general, the implants are the most advisable.

How do I restore the mouth when I am missing all the teeth and teeth?

The oral rehabilitation of a person who has lost all his teeth can be done using a prosthesis complete movable. These "complete dentures" with the passage of time can present a series of disadvantages as:

A - Loss of stability, adjust and retention that causes mobility,
difficulty chewing and insecurity.

B - slow resorption but continued of the alveolar bone of the maxilla.

C - sores in areas of friction.

D - Loss of taste and changes in the taste of the food.

E - In some people produce nausea which hinders their use.

These problems as well as the need to carry out frequent revisions have to be taken into account when deciding how to rehabilitate these cases. Through the placement of a variable number of dental implants, which will depend on each case in particular, you can adapt a prosthesis stable and stop the resorption of the bone in the jaw and increase the comfort and security.

In this case you can opt for a prosthesis completely fixed, which can only be removed by the dentist or by an overdenture that, although it can be removed by the patient, ensures a great stability and comfort when it is placed.

What is annoying the treatment with dental implants?

The surgical procedures of the treatment with implants are very well protocolizados and are usually done with a minimal or no discomfort.

In the vast majority of the time are performed under local anesthesia, like many other dental treatments and can only be heard the noise of the instruments and feelings of pressure or "runruneo" in the area. In the postoperative period may be a slight discomfort to cease the effect of anesthesia, although occasionally could be more intense.

Only in some people with special predisposition may occur, usually from the 24 hours of the intervention, inflammation of the operated area and hematoma. These phenomena pose no problem and are the reflection of the restorative reaction of the tissues after the intervention.

In very specific cases, either by facultative indication or because the patient so requests, the intervention of placement of dental implants will be under the effects of general anesthesia, usually in hospital regime.

Your Computer Implantological will advise you on the best way to carry out the treatment and will help you to avoid the inconvenience after the placement of their implants.
