Dental Implants in Cartagena and Murcia
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are just small titanium roots that are anchored to the bone, where the artificial tooth is placed. It can be used in patients whose maxillary and jawbone growth is complete, normally at 18 years of age.
What is it used for?
Dental Implants are used to substitute missing dental pieces or to place dental prosthesis.
Why is it so important?
In many occasions we think the reasons to complete our oral structure are merely cosmetic. However, an incomplete or poorly formed denture can have many factors influence and can be affected by. We are talking about Oral Health.
For a proper position of the implants we need to know the width and height of the bone, and in some cases also ensure a correct connection between the bone and the implant. An examination and an x-ray will give us that information, but in some cases it will be necessary to perform a C.A.T (Computerized Axial Tomography) that offers much more detailed information.
Once we have this information we will study the implants necessary and their location. Surgery is then performed to place them, using a local anesthesia to ensure there is no pain. This will allow us to put the tooth over the implant, pretending this way to have natural teeth where there wasn’t before.
In our clinic we use AVINENT grade 5 titanium implants, the greater hardness available in the implants market. The advances nowadays allow us to recover a single tooth or the whole set of teeth, placing a certain number of implants that may vary depending on each particular case. Additionally we make a six-monthly check, free of charge, including an annual x-ray to assess the state of the implants.
In case of an unsuccessful integration of an implant, Clínica Antonio Vidal guarantees its replacement within the next 5 years.
