Tooth loss can affect not only appearance but also oral function. Dental implants are an advanced and long-lasting option to restore the health and aesthetics of your mouth. At Clínica Curull we offer cutting-edge dental solutions and have a team of highly trained specialists to offer first-class dental implant treatments. Our mission is to transform smiles and improve the quality of life of our patients.
DENTAL IMPLANTOLOGY: THE SOLUTION TO LACK OF TEETH
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that acts as the root of the tooth and provides a solid foundation for dental restoration. This firm connection allows for similar functionality to natural teeth and is essential in the placement process.
It is surgically placed, under local anesthesia, inside the jaw bone. Subsequently, after a healing period, a prosthesis, or cover is attached. The use of implants allows the restoration of missing teeth without injuring neighboring teeth. Furthermore, by maintaining the height of the bone, we prevent gum collapse and improve the appearance of the smile.
Thanks to a new computer-guided dental technique, one or more teeth can be recovered, in a single session, through minimally invasive surgery. This innovative technique makes the post-operative period shorter, painless, and inflammation-free. And it allows a faster recovery so that you can eat from the same day.
DENTAL IMPLANTS: PROCEDURE AT CURULL CLINIC
- Initial Consultation: A team of specialists will evaluate oral health, discuss the patient’s goals, and answer any questions you may have.
- Personalized Planning: We use advanced technology, such as 3D imaging, to precisely plan implant placement and design a personalized treatment plan.
- Placement Process: Our professionals will perform the placement of the implants using advanced minimally invasive techniques to guarantee the comfort and effectiveness of the procedure. Immediate loading may be considered depending on the patient’s circumstances.
- Postoperative Follow-up: At Curull Clinic, we are committed to the well-being of our patients. Once the surgical phase is completed and the final dental prosthesis is also placed, we provide close follow-up to ensure that the treatment is successful.
THE SUCCESS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
The success of dental implants is greater than 95% and there is no immunological rejection. If an implant fails, it can be replaced with another of the same size after healing, something significant in long-term patients.
TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
At Curull Dental Clinic, we offer a variety of types of dental implants and dentures to adapt to the individual needs of each patient. From temporary prostheses to permanent solutions with fixed prostheses, we work to find the option that best suits your particular case.
We offer the possibility of implants and teeth in one day in those cases where the bone anatomy is favorable. Normally, these are situations where aesthetics are required or where all the natural teeth are unusable and must be extracted. At the same time as the extraction, the implants are placed and, a few hours later, a fixed prosthesis is also placed that allows you to lead a normal life.
Dental implants are titanium cylinders that are placed in the jaw to act as a root and anchor one or more artificial teeth. Then, a pop-up or bolt is installed on the implant. Finally, a porcelain crown is placed on the post that perfectly simulates a natural tooth. Depending on your situation, you can replace one or several teeth with dental implants.
When you lose a tooth, the bone where it resides begins a process of gradual disappearance. Early implant placement interrupts the bone resorption process.
Older solutions to tooth loss (bridges, removable appliances…) have the drawback that they do not interrupt the bone loss associated with tooth loss. In addition, they have to be supported by neighboring teeth that end up suffering from excess load.
Normally, each missing tooth must be replaced with an implant. However, in some areas of the mouth where the teeth receive less load “pressure”, it is possible to reduce the number of implants.
Bone implant interventions do not hurt because they are performed under local anesthesia. In longer or more complex cases, our anesthetists also use sedation techniques.
The maintenance of implants is similar to that of the rest of the teeth. After being placed, they require normal daily hygiene care from the patient and a review once a year by our clinic staff.
