What is the treatment plan for dental implants

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are the most effective and conservative way to replace missing teeth. Nowadays many studies endorse this treatment plan as ideal when replacing missing teeth. For a correct treatment the implantologist needs complementary tests prior to surgery. It is a simple surgical technique and with the prescribed care and medication our patients will be able to continue with their normal daily life.

Is its application always effective?

A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that, for whatever reason, is no longer present in the mouth. To do this, a surgical procedure is performed to replace a root, inserting an implant (made of titanium) in the bone, which is the first phase to then place a piece on its structure.

The implants do not suffer allergy or rejection, since titanium has an excellent biocompatibility with the tissues of the human body that tolerate them without allergic reactions of the immune system. The implant placement is performed under local anesthesia or, if desired, with intravenous sedation, so it is not a painful procedure.

What is the treatment plan?

After performing the study, we will make an appointment for the surgery. We will give the prescription of the medication that you will start taking along with the dosage. After surgery we will remove the suture in 7 to 15 days (depending on the surgery). The next check-up appointment will be after one month. Three months after the surgery, a healing cap will be placed, which protrudes from the gum and may require anesthesia. Once placed, we will scan and place the crown screwed to the implant.
