What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are a safe and lasting solution to the loss of one or more teeth. Currently implants are made of pure titanium and act as a substitute for the root of the tooth. Dental implants are the most aesthetic and functional solution to replace tooth loss.

How long do the Dental Implants we put in Torrevieja last?

If well-kept natural teeth last a lifetime, so do implants. To do this, what does it take? Starting from the basis that the implant is perfectly placed and integrated into the bone, the implant also needs a healthy gum aroundit, which requires:

1) A presence of keratinized gum (thick gum that protects both teeth and gums)

2) Patient dental hygiene at home (brushing, flossing, interproxymal brushes…)

3) dental clinic checkups every 6 months or each year (depending on the patient) to remove bacteria present in nooks and crannies, control the patient’s brushing, check for bacteria and inflammation in the gum surrounding the implants, disassemble the teeth to clean the crowns or prostheses, and observe the gum underneath (this is in certain types of prostheses).

How long does the whole process take?

It is a simple process that is carried out in the same dental office. The intervention itself is performed in a single day. In the same session the implant is placed and some provisional. In a few months they are replaced by the definitive prostheses. In any case, with the provisional prostheses you can make normal life in 24 hours without any problem.


Is the deployment process annoying?

No. The discomfort associated with the procedure is minimal. Local anesthesia is applied during the intervention, so that the patient does not notice any pain. Then in the case of pain it can be relieved with painkillers.



¿Qué cuidados requieren los implantes? ¿Podré hacer vida normal?

Dental implants need the same care and control as natural teeth, it will be necessary to carry out periodic checks for the correct maintenance of them.




What if I smoke?

It is highly recommended that you avoid tobacco, as it can affect very negatively even if there is no other risk factor. It can impair healing, reduce blood supply, decrease defenses against bacteria, or affect implant health in the long run. The latter is widely evidenced by studies that indicate a higher chance of implant infections when you are a smoker.

What is an immediate implant?

An immediate implant allows us to reduce treatment times. Since a dental implant is placed at the same time of dental removal.

In addition, the immediate implants with immediate load allow to perform in the same clinical act the extraction of the tooth piece, the placement of the implant and then the placement of the implanted crown (dental part).

How is it done?

When an implant candidate patient attends the clinic, he or she is referred to the dental implantology professional. Which performs an intra-extraoral examination, in addition to the necessary complementary tests, evaluating the possibilities in each case.

A number of requirements must be met for the placement of immediate implants. If these premises are correct, the patient is summoned for the intervention and the appropriate antibiotic is prescribed. At the time of surgery, the tooth extraction is performed followed by implantation and the crown on implants.

Who can apply?

The entire population is eligible for this type of treatment, as long as they meet a number of requirements.

The patient cannot have large active infections, and the bone to which the implant is to be anchored must be sufficient for the implant to be stable. In addition to immediate loading, the stability with which the implant is attached to the bone must be elevated.

If the implant does not remain with the necessary stability, we must wait and treat the case as if it were a traditional implant.

In addition, a number of risk factors are present: such as high alcohol consumption, tobacco abuse, poorly controlled diabetes, bisphosphonates, uncontrolled periodontal disease…..

Are they better than traditional implants?

No, they’re the same implants. What makes the difference are the advantages for the patient. As we have said earlier, waiting times are greatly reduced, in addition bone reabsorption and gingival recession decrease.

Who performs the treatment?

The treatment must be performed by a dentist specializing in dental implants, with a university postgraduate who qualifies the professional to perform such treatment.

How long does treatment take?

Treatment, a dental implant or numerous immediate dental implants with immediate charge, is performed in a single surgery.

Thus, comfort for the patient and considerable savings in treatment times. Instead with traditional implants it is necessary to wait 2 to 6 months.

Thanks to immediate implants with immediate charge there is the possibility of recovering a patient’s smile in approximately 24 – 48 hours.
