DENTAL IMPLANTS IN LAS PALMAS

Nowadays, the ideal treatment to replace a space due to the loss of a tooth is the use of dental implants, being the most recommended fixed solution. It should be mentioned that the lack of a piece in the mouth affects not only aesthetics, but over time, it will affect chewing, the rest of the teeth that will tend to occupy the free space, there will be a loss of bone, etc., so it is important to rehabilitate these spaces.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

The implants are titanium pieces totally biocompatible with the human body that we place in the bone and that imitate the roots of your teeth. In our dental clinic in Las Palmas, in just one day, and after the doctor has studied a specific 3D X-ray to see the bone, we can rehabilitate that space with these implants. We will need a minimum period of 2-3 months for the implant to integrate into your bone, although depending on bone density and quality, we can wait in some cases up to 6 months. After this time, we can proceed with the restorative phase of the crown.

There are occasions, in which we can try to extract the tooth and even place the dental implant and the provisional crown on the same day, always following the guidelines indicated by Dr. Caballero de Rodas.

In cases where we have to rehabilitate molars, or areas of the posterior sector, it is often not possible to place the crowns on the fly. This is due to the chewing force that we exert with the molars and how micro-traumas from chewing could damage the stability and integration of the implants in the bone.

Even so, there are complementary treatments and solutions that allow the rehabilitation of edentulous spaces that require other techniques. Dr. Caballero de Rodas is a specialist in complex cases and is used to perform bone grafts, sinus lifts, etc, in order to successfully rehabilitate the desired teeth with dental implants.

HOW IS A DENTAL IMPLANT PLACED?

diagnosis

The first thing we need to do in order to assess whether implants are the ideal option to rehabilitate a space without teeth, is to perform a study on the patient, including a 3D X-ray, a CT scan to be assessed by Dr. Caballero de Rodas and his team. This TAC is done in our facilities at the clinic in Las Palmas.

PLACEMENT

We will look for a place in the schedule that best suits your needs. The process of implant placement is usually quick and painless. We use local anesthesia, the same as for fillings. We also offer the possibility of performing the implant with navigated surgery with X-Guide, which makes the process even faster and gives you a better postoperative period.

HEALING

We will wait 3 months so that the healing of the implant is favorable and we have a strong bone-implant union.

CROWN PLACEMENT

When the doctor sees that the healing is correct, we will plan the realization of the crown, taking impressions with the intraoral scanner and being able to place the crown after 10 days.

MAINTENANCE

For the dental implant treatment to last, we advise you to follow the check-ups prescribed by your doctor.

OPINIONS OF OUR PATIENTS

DENTAL IMPLANTOLOGY SERVICE IN LAS PALMAS

+ Do I have to be without teeth for some time until the crown is placed?
The answer to this question depends on each specific case, on each patient and on the tooth to be rehabilitated with the dental implant. In general, we opt for two ways, which are:

There are occasions in which we can try to extract the tooth (if it is in the mouth and it is necessary) and even place the dental implant and the provisional crown on the same day, always following the guidelines indicated by Dr. Caballero de Rodas.

In cases where we have to rehabilitate molars, or areas of the posterior sector, it is often not possible to place the crowns on the fly. This is due to the chewing force that we exert with the molars and how micro-traumatisms due to chewing could damage the stability and integration of the implants in the bone.

+ Does implant placement hurt?
The placement of an implant is never a painful process. This treatment is always performed under local anesthesia. Once the process is finished, the doctor always prescribes analgesics to avoid any possible discomfort that may appear.

+ What happens if we do not place an implant after losing a tooth?
All teeth have a function in the mouth. If when we lose one we do not replace it, there is a possibility that the adjacent teeth will move and occupy their space, spaces will be created between the rest of the teeth, and the upper opposing tooth will also fall out, as it will not have the opposing tooth. This will cause occlusion problems, TMJ problems, etc.
In the long run, we will also lose bone support, whose function is to support the tooth that we no longer have, …

+ Is there a possibility of rejecting an implant?
The success rate of implant placement is around 98%. However, there are many factors that can affect the integration/scarring of the implants, leading to a failure in the osseointegration of the implant and therefore loss of the implant. This failure can be caused by different aspects: peri-implantitis infection, problems during osseointegration, smoking, defective dental hygiene…
