What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and tooth root used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dentists use a titanium screw to secure the artificial tooth (also known as a fixed dental prosthesis) to either the upper or lower jaw bone.  In the past, the only option for people missing teeth were either gaps in their mouth, dentures, or dental bridges.

It is also possible to place several dental implants in order to attach a complete dental prosthesis and thus replace all the teeth in an arch.

Why getting a dental implant?

Most people choose dental implants because they want to improve their physical appearance. But having missing teeth also increases your risk of tooth decay or movement of adjacent teeth. With missing teeth, it can be more difficult to effectively chew your food.

Dental implants help ensure better nutrition, a balanced diet, healthy digestion and better oral health.

What are the advantages of implantology?

There are several solutions for replacing a missing tooth, but dental implants are by far the most innovative and effective technique. From an aesthetic point of view, it cannot be compared with other methods, such as dentures or bridges. The latter has a disadvantage that does not exist in implantology.

With a bridge, two mechanical wings are attached to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth to hold the false tooth. And sometimes these healthy teeth have to be mutilated to serve as abutments. This is not the case if implant-supported prostheses are used. Finally, it is important to remember the particularly high success rate of implantology, which is over 90%.

Dental implants in Barcelona: procedure

examen implantologie

Step 1: implantology consultation

All implant treatment begins with a thorough examination of the patient's mouth to determine the indication and feasibility of implant placement. At this stage, a radiological assessment is essential to evaluate the available bone volume. A CT scan is sometimes necessary. These elements are necessary to determine the treatment plan and thus avoid possible complications.

Step 2: implant placement

Under local anaesthetic, the surgeon first exposes the jawbone by making an incision in the gum where the dental implant will be placed. The surgeon then drills a hole in the jawbone using surgical instruments capable of drilling into the bone, while taking care not to reach nearby anatomical structures, such as certain nerves and the maxillary sinuses. The dental implant is then screwed in place so that it is flush with the bone below the gum line.

Step 3: healing

A delay is then observed to allow the implant to integrate well with the bone. This is called osseointegration. This stage can last from 3 to 9 months.

Step 4: placing of the abutment

When the surgeon confirms that the osseointegration of the implant with the bone has occurred correctly and that the tissues are completely healed, an abutment, which will later accommodate the crown, prosthesis or artificial bridge, is screwed onto each dental implant installed in the previous step; the surgeon must first remove the gum tissue that covers the implant.

Step 5: placement of the final prosthesis

Once the abutment is placed, the implants will be put into function: crowns or bridges will be placed on the implants to complete the rehabilitation process.

Once the trials have been completed and if the work meets the patient's expectations (in terms of comfort, chewing ability, colour or shape of the tooth), the final fitting takes place: the practitioner glues or screws in the fixed prosthesis and the work is completed.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about dental implants

How long does a dental implant last?

A dental implant is designed to last at least 15 years. However, just like your natural teeth, the lifespan of dental implants depends on how well you take care of your oral health. The better you take care of your implants, the better you will be able to preserve them and keep them in place.

Can a dental implant become infected?

Infection can occur at any time and can develop shortly after the implant is placed or much later. If the gums relax slightly around the implant, bacteria can take hold all around.

What to eat after dental implants?

For the first few weeks, you should opt for a soft, cold diet. After three weeks, you can start to vary your diet and opt for easy-to-chew foods. After two months, you will finally be able to start eating more substantial meals again.
