When we lose one or several teeth we lose function and aesthetics. The position of neighboring teeth is altered, favoring periodontal diseases, caries, temporomandibular joint problems, etc. The loss of teeth can happen at any age and the implants allow to achieve an optimal and functional solution in almost all clinical situations.

implante1 Placement of implants is currently a simple, safe and reliable procedure in which a lost surgery is done through a small surgery. Implants also replace dentures that eventually cause excessive mobility, nuisance and discomfort.

Implants help replace missing teeth and restore the qualities of the mouth , without “touching” other teeth. Its function is to make root for the prosthetics they hold.

There is no age limit for the placement of dental implants, provided that the person’s bone growth has ended, after adolescence.

Older people benefit most from implant placement because the esthetic results they produce in them are more significant. Implants will allow you to eat whatever you want without the limitations you had before treatment.

The implants act and function as natural teeth allowing you to talk, eat and smile with total freedom.

What is a dental implant?

It is a small screw of pure titanium, a biocompatible material with the human body, that is placed in the upper or lower jawbone in order to replace the roots of the missing teeth, functioning as natural teeth.

On the implant will be placed a transgingival abutment that will support the new prosthesis (the tooth to be seen). The implant does not make sense without a correct restorative treatment. On the implants we can hold all type of prosthesis, from complete dentures to unitary teeth or bridges of more than one piece. Your restorative dentist should evaluate each case and use all the diagnostic tools (X-rays, TACs, models, etc.) to obtain maximum treatment safety, programming from the outset the prosthetic treatment that will guide the surgical phase.

Treatment plan with implants

Before treatment with implants you will receive all the information and advice from our team of surgeons and prosthodontists, we will perform a study and an exploration to determine the health of your mouth including x-rays that will reveal the quantity and quality of the maxillary bone. After this analysis we will detail a treatment plan with all phases of it.

Stages of treatment

  • 1.-Preliminary examination:In this first study we will tell you if you can benefit from the treatment with implants and we will explain how, where and the number of implants to be placed.
  • 2.- Surgery:The implant is placed with a simple surgical intervention painless and under local anesthesia, under conditions of sterility of the entire surgical field. Typically, stitches are removed and removed within a week. In ICOA we have advanced surgical techniques that allow us to place the implants without having to open the gingiva, by means of minimally invasive surgery, reason why in many cases it is not necessary to give points of suture. We can also perform computer guided surgery, laser surgery, or bone surgery using ultrasound, so that surgical trauma is minimal. However, the type of surgery to be practiced must be assessed individually by the surgeon taking into consideration the situation of each patient.
  • 3.- Period of rest and healing:The implant rests for approximately 2 to 6 months, depending on the case, so that it is integrated (welded to the bone) and can then withstand the forces of mastication. During this period you may wear temporary dentures; In any case it is very important that you carry a soft diet at this stage of treatment. In some patients with special characteristics, implants can be implanted with immediate loading, placing implant and tooth (or teeth) from the same day of surgery.
  • 4.- Placement of abutments:By means of a simple operation, normally transmucosa and with the implant correctly integrated we replace the closure cap of the implant by a pillar to conform and to model the gingiva and to heal the tissues. This simple operation usually does not exceed 10 minutes. After a short healing period of between 1 week and 15 days the surgical treatment is over.
  • 5.- Taking impressions: This is the phase in which the prosthodontist (denture expert) will take steps to develop a model, which will be an exact replica of his mouth, so that the dental laboratory can develop his new teeth. As the prosthesis is being made the prosthodontist will cite you to test what will be your final teeth.
  • 6.- Prosthesis: The surgeon and the prosthodontist will decide the prosthesis that best suits their implants to provide a function and aesthetics that are as close to their natural dentition. Currently the introduction of new materials such as the latest generation porcelain or zirconia, white and very biocompatible, provide us with new possibilities and alternatives still with better aesthetic results.
  • 7.- Reviews: It is imperative to establish a plan of periodic revisions to check the levels of bone around the implant, the adjustments of the different components of the prosthesis, and the occlusion or shape of the teeth. If you notice any changes ask us.

Preguntas frecuentes sobre el tratamiento protésico con implantes

  • Is there allergy or rejection? No, but there may be a lack of integration that forces us to change that implant for another.
  • Is there an infection? Difficult. It is always done with antibiotic coverage and in means of sterility, although your hygiene measures are important, follow the advice of your dentist.
  • If I have little bone can I attach the prosthesis with implants? There are special regenerative techniques to solve some cases, as well as different prosthetic options. At ICOA we are experts in the placement of zygomatic implants. These implants are used in patients with large maxillary atrophies, so that instead of resorting to large and complex bone grafts, the zygomatic implants are anchored to the bone of the cheek bone. This surgery is performed under local anesthesia. Zygomatic implants allow a flat prosthesis without palate to be worn to patients with large bone loss, and normally the whole process takes about four months.
  • Can I have complications once the prosthesis or teeth are placed on the implants? They are not very frequent. It may have de-cemented, loosening of the connection screws, porcelain fractures, resin wear, tooth detachment; Are almost always due to an overload or overfunction, which also occurs with natural teeth, and we must place a discharge plate (night protector) to minimize them
  • How long do implants last? Determining what implants can last is very difficult. Although it may be a lifelong treatment, we can determine that a large majority of patients over 25 years of age continue to take them as the first day. The high technology with which they are made and the materials with which they are made provide a high security to the user.

Can I get implants if I have periodontal disease?

Yes. Implants placed in the mouth are subject to the same risk of infection as the teeth. Implants should never be placed without proper control of periodontitis, but once this is achieved, they behave the same as in a patient not affected by the disease. The best way to achieve a good long-term outcome of your treatment with implants is to make sure that there is no periodontal disease or should be affected, treat antes.La uncontrolled periodontal disease is associated with certain risks such as increased frequency of preterm births in pregnant patients, alterations in metabolism consecutive bone menopause (Osteoporosis), poor control of diabetes, and increased risk of acute cardiovascular accidents (myocardial infarction, stroke, etc.). There are also studies that relate the presence of periodontal disease with alterations in the performance of athletes as a result of decreased muscle capacity, flexibility and speed of physical response.

The best way to replace your teeth is by fixed prosthesis supported by implants. Removable prostheses usually damage the gums and the remaining teeth.

Advantages of implant treatment

    • The main advantage of treatment with implants is the possibility of restoring your missing teeth in the most natural way possible without the need to attack the remaining healthy teeth.
    • In addition, the prostheses are more stable and functionally effective and also more durable.
    • With dental implants you will achieve a feeling of naturalness that is not provided by other treatments such as bridges or partial dentures
    • They do not produce rejection because they are made of pure titanium, totally biocompatible with the human body.
    • They stimulate the growth of bone tissue and soft tissues providing an aesthetic result.
    • They provide important self-esteem to the patient as they considerably improve speech and aesthetic appearance.

At ICOA we provide a PREMIUM service

Throughout the treatment of implants, since we use healing abutments and single use strawberries, that is to say, it is not reusable material although sterilized, you release it, and when you finish the treatment, you take it, it’s yours.

At ICOA we also certify the quality of the materials and products we work with, so upon completion of the treatment we certify the quality of the product on the card that is delivered to each patient at the end of the surgery.

One key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The posterior maxillary area has traditionally been one of the areas where it is more difficult to successfully implant dental implants due to the insufficient quantity and quality of bone and the proximity of the breasts. If you have lost bone in that area due to reasons such as periodontal disease or loss of teeth, you may have missing bone for implant placement.

Breast lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the floor of the breast and allowing the development of bone for placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the breast and allow the bone to regenerate. In the conventional technique an incision is made and a small window is made by which it is raised in the sinus membrane, and the space below is filled with bone graft material.
Depending on your individual needs, the bone usually regenerates in a time of four to 12 months before the implants can be placed. When the implants are placed, an additional healing period is required. In some cases, the implant can be placed at the same time, so that waiting times are reduced noticeably.

Breast lift surgery has proven to be a very reliable technique that greatly increases the chances of success of the implants. Many patients experience very little discomfort during this procedure.

CIGOMATIC IMPLANTS

A critical element in the success of treatment with implants is the availability of adequate bone in quality and quantity sufficient to be able to insert the implants and allow the correct osseointegration of the implants, a process during which the bone fuses with the bone. In the past, patients with severe bone atrophies had first to undergo bone block grafts or were discarded as candidates for implant treatment, which is equivalent to not being able to enjoy a fixed and stable prosthesis.

Even in cases of significant maxillary atrophy, our surgeons have the technology to ensure that our patients who want a fixed prosthesis without palate can enjoy it.

Through the zygomatic implants we get anchoring thanks to the use of available bone from the mouth to the cheekbone (also called zygomatic bone). While conventional implants measure between 6 and 15mm in length, zygomatic implants measure up to 60mm, which allows the location of the anchors necessary to attach a fixed prosthesis to the oral cavity.

Because the cheekbone has enough abundant bone to allow osseointegration of the implants, it is not necessary to graft bone or raise the maxillary sinus.

This advanced technique that we offer in ICOA is particularly useful in those patients who need implants in the posterior area of the maxilla, since in this area bone resorption after tooth loss is faster. The cheekbone is an ideal alternative for the anchorage of the implants that are needed to fix a complete arch or a posterior bridge.

ALL ON FOUR

The All-on-4 technique is an innovative solution for patients with bone deficiency who wish to wear a fixed denture.

In the page www.orthoapnea.com You will find all the information about this novel treatment. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need any clarification or have any questions.

The technology to plan the surgery of implants by computer allows us to accurately position the implants, using software in a virtual environment based on the scanner of their jaws. Thus we can evaluate, with unbeatable precision, the quantity and quality of your bone in the desired place to locate the implant.

All this technology assures greater safety in avoiding critical anatomical structures, helps predict the need to use bone injects, and more importantly, when we can avoid them. With all this information we can manufacture surgical splints based on CAD / CAM technology that serve to precisely position the implants and reduce surgical trauma.

Computer-aided surgery is the most advanced implant placement technique so far and uses patient scanning images of the jaws to plan surgery on a computer using 3-D software. Conventional planning using 2-D panoramic radiography has certain limitations and performing the surgery accurately to the surgical plan is often difficult. However, planning for computer surgery allows you to perform surgery with absolute precision according to the planned treatment.

The planning of computer implants requires the following elements:

implante7
  • Making a radiological splint.
  • Cone Beam Scanner (CBCT).
  • Have a software and a special surgery equipment to perform this type of technique.
  • Make a surgical splint according to the planned treatment on the computer.

The planning of treatment using specific implant surgery software and its transformation into a surgical splint is a much safer and more accurate technique than conventional surgery.
This procedure reduces postoperative discomfort considerably in patients compared to conventional surgery. This new concept also reduces the number and length of appointments for our patients.

Mini Implants

We have mini-implants for the stabilization of the dentures. These implants are a good choice for patients who require additional stability in their dentures but whose health or financial status does not allow them to access a treatment with conventional implants. Your usual dentures can usually be modified by our specialists at the time of surgery. You will be able to benefit from the advantages of having a stable denture immediately.

“The ideal treatment for multiple tooth replacement is rehabilitation with implants”

The implants placed by our surgeons have many advantages over removable bridges and dentures:

  • They look natural, work and look like natural teeth because we use the best materials.
  • They are fixed, they are not removable like dentures.
  • Maintain the natural structure of bone, stimulate bone growth and stop bone loss (this is one of the most important benefits).
  • Do not move or bother during mastication, unlike traditional dentures.
  • Minimally invasive. The adjacent teeth need not be carved, unlike conventional bridges, so that the dental structure of healthy teeth does not change.
  • How much does it cost to replace a missing tooth with an implant?
  • The procedure for replacing multiple teeth will depend on the number of teeth lost and therefore the number of implants required. For example, 2 implants can be used to support 2 or 3 missing teeth and 4-6 implants can be used to rehabilitate a complete arch of teeth.
  • During your initial visit, the surgeon will indicate the possible solutions and how many implants are needed, and with that treatment plan we will prepare a budget that will be delivered in writing. During this consultation the dentist will answer any questions you may have.

sedacion2

Are you afraid of the dentist?

Sedation in dentistry or sedoanalgesia is a technique to achieve an ansiolisis, a soft sedation and a slight decrease of the level of consciousness, with the objective of receiving in a state of relaxation a dental treatment.
During dental sedation the patient is able to respond to stimuli and can collaborate the necessary thing so that the dentist performs his task with more agility and speed, without the patient loses his sense of well-being.
Sedation in dentistry can be done through several resources:

  • Oral Premedication
  • Nitrous oxide
  • Intravenous sedation
ICOA sedation is performed by physicians with MIR training who monitor the vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation) during surgery and adjusts the patient’s sedation. This monitoring allows the depth of sedation to be adjusted during the procedure and for the necessary time.
