Whether due to trauma or pathologies such as cavities or periodontal disease, if you have suffered the loss of a dental piece, it is essential that you replace its absence through an oral implantology procedure. This odontological discipline is in charge of its substitution by dental implants fixed in the maxillary bones. These implants allow the recovery of the functionality of the oral cavity, as well as the aesthetics of the mouth.
At Clínica Blanc, we are experts in treatments with dental implants. In our dental clinic in Mahón, we can renew your smile through procedures based on the quality and experience of our professionals. We also have an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is an expert in this field and in simple and complex oral rehabilitations. Likewise, thanks to the use of 3D simulation, we carry out computer-guided implantology. The new dental advances allow us to obtain dental pieces identical to the original ones in form, color and size.
What are dental implants?
Until a few years ago, absent dental pieces were usually treated with prostheses or removable bridges. However, today, treatment with dental implants is recommended.
An implant is a small piece made of biocompatible titanium that is placed in the patient’s bone structures. Thus, this piece performs the dental root function in a fixed manner. In turn, the implant is covered with a crown that can be made of various materials.
Once fixed in the bone, and after completing the osseointegration process, the patient can fully recover his quality of life. That is, both the masticatory function, as well as phonetics and aesthetics.
Types of Simple and Complex Implantology Procedures in Mahón
Thanks to oral implantology procedures, we can replace the absence of a single dental piece, as well as partial or totally edentulous arches. In our dental clinic in Maó we carry out treatments of simple oral Implantology, by means of unitary implants, as well as complex Implantology.
In Clínica Blanc, we also work with immediate load implants and fixed prostheses on implants. The immediate loading allows the placement of a provisional crown on the implant, allowing a saving of time with respect to other implant procedures. It also allows a better osseointegration and healing of the gingival tissues and an immediate recovery of the oral aesthetics.
On the other hand, the fixed prosthesis on implants replaces all the original dental pieces of a patient’s arch. Thus, these devices are generally fixed on four, six or eight osseointegrated implants and allow a complete rehabilitation of the oral cavity.
Benefits of Rehabilitations through implants
Oral Rehabilitations, through the use of dental implants, have risen as the safest alternative to recover the functionality and aesthetics of the smile for various reasons:
- Implants prevent the loss of bone and the movements that can carry out the adjacent teeth to an absent one.
- It is the procedure that allows the complete recovery of the chewing, phonetic and aesthetic functions of the mouth.
- With the appropriate care, and following the recommendations of your dentist of confidence, the implants can have a durability of up to 20 or 30 years. In addition, their
maintenance is very similar to that of the original dentition.
- It is a completely painless intervention that allows the patient to improve their self-esteem and self-confidence.
