One of the most demanded treatments by people visiting the country are dental implants, if you are still not aware of what they are, we will explain a little more about them:
What are dental implants?
We can define dental implants as the combination of a screw with a dental crown that is placed to replace the tooth. In this way, a screw is placed in the maxillary bone and then a crown is installed.
There is no specific material to make dental implants, each one can be of a different type, but it is normal that the screw is made of a biocompatible material that does not affect our mouth in any way. For example, titanium.
The process where the materials of a dental implant are joined together is called “Osseointegration”, and it is used so that the maxillary bone adapts to its new structure and allows it to function correctly, as if it were a tooth.
The dental crown that is placed on the screw must be made of a material similar to the tooth so that the esthetics are not damaged by this change.
How are dental implants placed?
The process of placing dental implants does not involve any type of pain, since it is necessary to use local anesthesia. In case the patient needs it, it can be done through conscious sedation in order to keep the patient calm.
Dental implants are placed in the bone of the upper jaw or jawbone by making a small opening in the gum. In case it is necessary to perform an extraction before placing the dental implant, specialists recommend performing it in the same session whenever possible.
After this surgery, it is necessary to leave some time for the implant to fuse with the bone, which usually takes between 3 or 4 months depending on each patient. Once this period has passed and the implant is firmly osseointegrated, we place the implant crown.
One of the frequent questions regarding this procedure is about dental esthetics, and it is common to assume that the screws will be visible. And this is incorrect, the intention of the dental implants is that they are not noticeable to the naked eye and are confused with the other dental pieces.
How long does it take to make an implant?
The dental implant procedure does not tend to be very time consuming. It usually takes about 20 minutes to perform depending on the type of case, but does not exceed half an hour.
The surgery to place an implant does not usually require a lot of time. It usually takes about 15 minutes. In the event that the patient needs to have an extraction, the procedure takes a few minutes longer.
One of the benefits of this procedure is that there is no specific limit to the number of implantations. In fact, there are implant structures that allow you to intervene different teeth at the same time, such as the All on 4 or All on 6.
