Dental implants are screws that are set into the jawbone or maxilla that act as a root of a tooth that had been lost or extracted. They are made of Grade 5 Titanium, which is the purest most compatible material used for prosthetics on the human body. After installing dental Implants, the next step is to place the abutment and crown to complete the treatment and completely replace the lost tooth. We only use imported FDA approved implants, the same brands that are used in the USA and Canada.
Individual implants can be placed in any area that has a missing tooth. The size can be wide, regular or narrow, depending on the tooth that is going to be replaced. The treatment is very simple and fast and only requires a minor invasive surgery where the doctor will open the gum and screw the implant into the bone, after it’s placed, the healing cap and gum will be sutured. This is not a painful procedure as it’s done with local anesthesia and it takes approximately one hour, also we offer sedation done by an anesthesiologist when needed. After inserting the implant, there will be a healing time to let the implant be Osseo-integrated.
Most people are candidates for this procedure, as long as there is enough bone, we can do it. The doctor can make a specific evaluation of your case, the only thing we need you to do is send us a panoramic x-ray of your mouth.
