What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium structures positioned in the upper or lower jaw that will replace the roots of lost natural teeth, functioning as artificial roots. These implants will serve after abutment for the placement of future dental crowns.

How are dental implants placed?
Prior to the procedure for placing dental implants, there is a planning phase in which complementary diagnostic tests are carried out, namely panoramic radiography of the jaws and CAT. The next phase involves inserting the implant. Implants, once placed, establish a perfectly healthy and stable biological union. The next step consists of placing the definitive crowns on the implant abutments.

How do you know if you have enough bone to place dental implants?
The amount of bone is not an impediment to treatment with dental implants. In most situations it is possible to regenerate bone through minimally invasive techniques, using the patient's own bone grafts or biomaterials. After this treatment, any patient is eligible for implantology treatments.

What are the advantages of opting for rehabilitation with dental implants?
A rehabilitation with dental implants will allow the patient a clear change in aesthetic and functional terms. This will result in a significant improvement in your confidence and self-esteem. Dental implants are extremely versatile and can replace one or more missing teeth. In addition to being a comfortable and painless solution, dental implants, working like natural teeth, prevent bone loss and consequently delay facial aging. The other great advantage is the fact that as they are a fixed solution, they will eliminate the discomfort and embarrassment caused by the use of traditional removable prostheses. So you can chew, talk and smile safely!
