A good way to explain it would be comparing a dental implant with a natural tooth.
The tooth is made up of the part that is visible in the mouth, which is the crown, and an invisible part, within the maxillary bone, under the gum, which we call the root.
When a tooth is lost, both the crown and the root are lost. To replace the root we will use a type of screw, made of titanium, which we will place inside the maxillary bone in an “osseous bed” that we will create, using local anaesthetic.
Dental implants are aesthetic solutions (no hooks can be seen) verycomfortable with regard to usage, and highly respectful of neighbouring structures (teeth need not be sculpted and bone volume is maintained).
Why should I replace lost teeth?
– Biting and chewing ability is compromised,
– Dental implants prevent overloading of the remaining teeth and molars excess burden on some dental absence.
– The neighbors missing teeth lose their axis , bending , and provide further instability. When a “bite” is not stable, the jaw joint is seriously compromised. Dental implants stabilize the bite.
– Aesthetic impact. Dental implants replenished aesthetic function besides
How many dental implants do I need?
A fixed rehabilitation based on dental implants is like the construction of a building. The more robust and abundant the foundations and the greater the quality of the floorspace, the better the load will be supported.
The number of dental implants is determined through a study of the case. For this reason, plaster moulds will be made, x-rays will be taken and whatever other complementary tests carried out that may be required to carry out a complete implantology study.
Once the case has been analysed, we will seek a balance in accordance with the different aspects of the case, the final dental prosthesis that the dental implants will end up supporting and the economic possibilities in each case.
Bearing in mind all aspects, the most balanced solution will be sought between both doctor and patient.
How long will the dental implants last?
The duration of the dental implants will depend to a great degree on the maintenance we carry out with the corresponding revisions at the dental clinic, on the presence or otherwise of unhealthy habits such as smoking, as well as daily personal care.
At our clinic we work only with the very best quality dental implants and we can point to statistics of a solid scientific basis that give a 95% chance of the implants remaining in place after 10 years, and between 80 y 90% after 30 years.
These figures would be comparable to other types of rehabilitations of the body that require implants such as hip or knee prostheses.
