Losing a tooth can be traumatising for anyone. In addition to the aesthetic implications, there are functional or degenerative implications that manifest through chewing difficulties or even modifications of the dento-maxillary system. This is why it is ideal for every lost tooth to be replaced.
Any patient who wishes to undergo treatment based on dental implants will be examined via a CT scan which will allow for a three-dimensional analysis of the patient’s jaw bone. This analysis will help us determine the type and size of the implant that best fits each patient’s needs. After the diagnosis we outline the treatment plan and this entails creating impressions of your teeth and gums so that models can be made and analysed by a team of dental surgeons, practitioners and technicians. Together, we design personalized solutions for each of our patients. The surgery can be performed under local anaesthesia, conscious analgo-sedation or general anaesthesia, according to the patient’s wishes. The surgery can take 1 to 3 hours, depending on each case.
The dental implant is the only method that doesn’t imply modifying the neighboring teeth in order to replace a lost tooth.
It is made of biocompatible materials designed to integrate into the human body and very closely resemble a natural tooth.
At the Badea Implant clinic we use implants made by companies with a long heritage in this field, which means that we do not compromise when it comes to your health.
Placing an implant requires a high level of expertise. This procedure is normally pain-free and can be completed with a few visits to the dental clinic. The first visit and the following visits will be months apart so that the implant can have time to bind with the bone, after which the crown can be placed on the implant.
Separating the steps of this procedure will help you understand the process:
1. Free estimate
The first step is to make a primary diagnosis.
To receive this diagnosis, patients will need to send a panoramic X-Ray (OPG, OPT) via email to email@example.com and fill in the questionnaire that is available to download on this website. The X-Ray can be scanned or photographed on an illuminated support (window, X-Ray viewer). You can send these in free of charge and in turn you will receive:
2. Inserting the implant
The procedure is quick and simple, performed under local anaesthetic, in our clinic, in a completely sterile environment, by a specialized surgeon and an assistant. After the implant is inserted, there is a wait time of 1 to 6 months for the bone to grow around the titanium implant and bind through osseointegration. During this time, the implant will be covered with a prosthesis to keep it from deteriorating. After this period, the patient will return to the clinic to continue the procedure.
3. Setup-up of the implants
After the healing is done, we can set-up (screw-in) the implants and crowns
4. Final prosthesis
Each characteristic of the patient’s denture will be taken into account (shape, color, symmetry, position) when creating a tooth that matches perfectly. The temporary crowns will be replaced with permanent ones prepared in the laboratory.
