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.
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.
The advantages of dental implants
There are several replacement solutions for missing teeth, but dental implants are by far the most innovative and effective technique. The vast majority (90%) of people who choose dental implants are happy with their treatment choice. Reasons for this high treatment success rate include:
Dental implant surgery: what to expect?
The operation is usually performed in several steps.
- First, your dentist makes an incision in the gum to access your upper or lower jaw bone. A tooth root implant made of titanium is screwed into your jaw bone. It can take 1-2 months for the jaw bone to heal around the implant, forming a secure base for the new, artificial tooth to be attached to.
- Next, after the healing process called “osseointegration,” your dentist places a small connector post (called an implant abutment).
- The artificial tooth can then be attached to this implant abutment.
Why getting your dental implants in Barcelona?
Turo Park Medical and Dental Center is able to offer you convenient, affordable, and accessible care with minimal disruption to your daily life and smile. For example, to reduce your inconvenience and discomfort, the dentists at Turó Park Dental Center choose to place provisional fixed teeth during the first stage (oseointegration) while you are waiting for the final tooth (titanium crown).
Professionalism and expertise with the latest dental technology
Turo Park dentists and oral surgeons are experts in their field, with years of specialized training and clinical experience with implant placement. Our specialists use Cone Beam Dental Scanning, a specialized type of Xray, to produce 3-dimensional images of your teeth, bones, nerves and soft tissues of the mouth. Using this advanced technology increases precision, safety, and the likelihood of treatment success.
Turó Park Medical and Dental Center professionals primarily work only with zirconium dental crowns. This type of crown is the most desirable material because it is most easily shaped, sized, and colored to match natural teeth.
Fast, convenient, and accessible care
Dental implants are performed during regular business hours in our centrally-located Barcelona clinic, which allows patients who do not live in Barcelona to make the round trip on the same day. Appointments can be booked online, consultations are readily available, and the Turó Park Dental & Medical Center team is always available to answer any questions you may have during the entire process.
Conscious sedation option
Turo Park Medical and Dental Center can offer you dental implant procedures with improved pain control and reduced anxiety, if you struggle with fear related to dental procedures. Conscious sedation uses short-acting medications to help you relax (a sedative) and to relieve any pain (an anesthetic). You will remain conscious during the procedure, but because you are more relaxed, the surgeon is able to work more quickly and effectively, usually shortening the total time of the procedure.
Cost-effective treatment with reimbursement assistance
Turó Park Dental & Medical Center offers affordable, high-quality dental implant care. Spanish public health insurance does not cover the cost of dental implants surgery. Some health insurance plans may cover part of the cost of dental implant surgery, so we recommend that you review the clauses of your specific contract to find what is covered. Our multilingual health office staff are at your disposal to help you understand what the actual cost of your dental implant surgery will be and what your health insurance plan might reimburse.
