The dental implant placement process is done in several steps. First, a complete study of the condition of the bone ( where the implant will be placed) is carried out using X – rays, dental CT, photos and digital scanning. Once the study is done, the intervention is scheduled.
In this intervention , under local anesthesia, an incision is made in the gum and the implant is placed inside the bone . To ensure proper bone – implant integration , it is necessary to wait several months before placing the final crown. After this healing phase, known as ” osseointegration “, and through a titanium abutment , the final crown is attached to the implant.
To avoid possible discomfort during the integration phase, at Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic we place temporary fixed teeth during the first stage ( while we wait for the final tooth ), especially in the aesthetic area (visible area of the smile ).
Every time the placement of a fixed prosthesis of this type is considered , some doubts are raised that the team at Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic solves in a completly personalized way . Each case is different and that is why we like to offer individual attention and explain to each patient all the necessary details
When a tooth needs to be replaced, our patients ask how much a dental implant costs. There are several factors that influence the different prices of dental implants:
The different materials used to manufacture the definitive and provisional prostheses and the laboratory work will determine the price of the dental implant, but in addition, the patient’s state of health will influence the extent to which he or she needs additional treatments or a greater number of consultations and revisions.
The complexity of the dental implant, whether it is one or several pieces that we have to replace, which increases the price of the dental implant.
In the vast majority of cases, dental implants do not present problems of any kind . The success rate of these interventions is greater than 96%.
Dental implants are made of titanium , a biocompatible material that can rarely present integration problems . These problems are generally associated with smokers , poor hygiene , or uncontrolled diabetes, not with the implant itself . The percentage of non – integration of dental implants is around 2% of the total.
To guarantee the integration of the dental implant , it is important to avoid bad habits such as tobacco use, maintain adequate oral hygiene and follow the preoperative and postoperative instructions of our team of specialists .
The duration of the dental implant , in most cases, is directly proportional to the care we have in its maintenance phase . Implants can be for life if we take care of them , if we do not have harmful habits ( tobacco , alcohol, poor hygiene ) and if we carry out regular dental check – ups, at least twice a year . For the durability of dental implants , the most important care is everything related to hygiene . If there is poor dental hygiene , bacteria can accumulate on the implant surface leading to infections and bone loss in the area where the implant is placed, resulting in Peri – implantitis.
At Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic we carry out a complete oral health study before and after placing the implants , to guarantee the success of the treatment . Trust our team of professionals . We work to always offer you personalized treatments , tailored to your needs . Your smile deserves the best care .
