Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth-loss, and provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. As well as restoring your natural tooth function, dental implants are very natural looking and often can be a great confidence boost in terms of enhancing patient’s smile.
Dental implants are very strong, reliable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.
CT-scan and impressions are taken of the jaw and teeth to establish bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for up to six months. A second surgery may also be required in some circumstances in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. However, with other implants the post and anchor are already attached and fixed at the same time.
After several weeks, the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. This step may take one to two months to complete as several fittings may be required. Once the healing process is over, the artificial teeth are securely fastened to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
You dentist will provide care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will assist in the life of your new implant.
Regenerative medicine has been a revolution in the search for new treatments. Thanks to this, today it is possible to use the human body’s own resources to cure itself, which is the principle on which the PRGF® technology is based. This technique enables us to isolate, concentrate and remove growth factors; a set of proteins present in our blood, responsible for repairing tissues naturally. The use of the PRGF® technology has been a revolution in the field of dental medicine that means we can offer solutions that are minimally invasive, customised, biosafe and predictable to guarantee the success of the treatment.
We use PRGF® in dental procedures such as dental implants as it is not only heals quicker and reduces the pain but also minimises the risk of infection.
