What is the definition of a dental implant?

A dental implant is a procedure in which one or more teeth are replaced while the neighboring teeth are preserved. It's a titanium or zirconia screw that replaces the root in the gum and allows for the placement of a dental crown to preserve the implant.

 Patients can benefit from this dental prosthesis in a variety of ways. They will be able to regain a daily use of their teeth for the rest of their lives, without worrying about what they will be able to eat; the implant is permanent, so they will not need any additional surgeries; and finally, the implant is so discreet that it could be mistaken for a natural tooth from an aesthetic standpoint; you will be able to smile normally without hiding.

Our oral health clinics' dental surgeons deliver the greatest care possible, owing to a rigid protocol that adheres to hygiene regulations and employs a variety of techniques. The dental surgeon will adjust the length, diameter, and shape of the dental implant to be placed after doing an oral examination and analyzing the treatment that is best for you.

Our Dental Health Centers include a high-performance technical platform with a panoramic X-ray equipment and a 3D Cone Beam scanner that allows all technical and radiological evaluations to be completed on-site.

There are several types of prostheses that will cover the implant, depending on your demands and the treatment that will be performed. Your dentist will determine which prosthesis is the best fit for you.

Fixed prostheses: There are three different types of fixed prostheses that can be used on the implant.

The dental crown artificially reconstructs the decaying tooth's crown.

The bridge is a dental restoration that uses surrounding teeth to replace a lost tooth. The complete fixed prosthesis, which will apply only if the patient no longer has any teeth. In this case, all the missing teeth cannot be replaced by implants, it would be too heavy for the patient.


Removable prostheses: more commonly called dentures, which can be removed when needed. It may in some treatments, require the placement of two implants, to provide better stability in the gums.

What is the point of having an implant?

Implantology is a real medical advancement that enhances our patients' quality of life in addition to providing comfort and beauty. Another essential point is that it is non-aggressive to the other teeth, allowing each patient to find a smile and display completely healthy and aligned teeth.

The majority of individuals who get dental implants have had serious dental issues such as deep infections, a poorly shaped tooth, or a tooth that has been shocked. One thing to keep in mind is that individuals who want this type of treatment must have finished their bone growth. As a result, we advise individuals under the age of 18 to either wait a few years or seek alternative treatment. Our experts will identify the finest solutions to your problems.

This treatment is not available to everyone. Certain health conditions, in addition to having strong bones, can prohibit an implant from being implanted. Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even kidney failure are examples of this.

The maintenance of the implant, like any therapy, necessitates proper oral hygiene, which can be achieved through daily tooth brushing, regular mouthwashes, and the use of dental floss if necessary. We also recommend that you undergo a dental check-up with your dentist at Our dental health center once a year.

Frequently Asked Questions

We'll be able to tell you for sure if you're a good candidate for dental implants, although most people who are in good health are. To determine if dental implants are an appropriate treatment, we will examine the general state of your mouth as well as the quantity and quality of bone. We frequently take radiographs (xrays) of the area to determine how much bone is available for implant placement.
Dental implants are normally inserted with a local anesthetic and with great care. Following this, you should expect some soreness and swelling for a few days, but you should be able to resume your typical activities soon after. Following the surgery, you will be given detailed post-operative instructions, as well as a phone number to call if you have any concerns or questions.
The implants must adhere to the bone through a process known as osseointegration. The length of this waiting period varies depending on the quality of the bone in the area where the implants were placed.
Because implants are so close to natural teeth, they should last a long time if properly cared for, but there is no guarantee that they will last a lifetime. There's a danger that an implant won't osseo-integrate, or adhere to the bone. This occurs roughly 1-2 percent of the time in the upper jaw. If this occurs during the healing process after implant placement, we will remove the implant and may need to insert another several weeks later. Any implant that has been integrated and functioning for more than 25 years has a greater than 90% likelihood of performing well. As a result, implants are a reliable and long-term therapy choice.
The quality and amount of bone are critical for effective implants, and we may need to offer a replacement for a deficit of bone, which usually takes the shape of a modest augmentation around the implant's neck. We can normally do this procedure at the same time as implant placement, depending on the magnitude of the insufficiency.
