Dental implants are artificial titanium roots that arise to meet the aesthetic, masticatory and phonetic needs that are diminished after the loss of natural teeth.
In the absence of one or more teeth, patients request a treatment option that solves the aesthetic and functional problem in the most conservative way possible, that is, avoiding reducing the adjacent teeth for the preparation of a bridge. And this is only achieved by means of dental implants.
Although many materials have been developed over the course of history, the material used today is titanium.
Titanium is not only a material that is very biocompatible with the human organism, but it also has the ability to bond living bone intimately to its surface.
In this way, the bone accepts the titanium as if it were actually part of the body’s own structure, thus producing a biological weld.
Once the implants have healed, the prostheses (caps) are stabilised on them, which function exactly like natural teeth.
Dental implants will allow us to chew with total comfort, smile and speak with the same security as with our own teeth.
In some specific and favourable cases, the patient, after undergoing implant surgery, can have a provisional prosthesis inserted on the same day as the surgery. This type of treatment provides the highest level of comfort, rehabilitation and readaptation of the patient to daily life, but in order for it to be carried out, a series of indispensable characteristics must be met.
