A dental implant is an element used to replace the root of a tooth that has been lost in order to place a crown above it. This way we will be able to restore the function of the lost tooth as if nothing had happened.
They are made of titanium, a metal tolerated by the human body to the point that bone can grow around it. This allows the dental implants to be correctly fixated so they can resist the forces produced during chewing.
In our clinic we have been performing this treatment for 20 years, being the first in Vilanova i la Geltrú and we use implants made by Straumann the leading company in implant design whose continued dedication in investigation and development offers us high quality implants that highly reduce the possible problems that may occur during the treatment.
Depending on the number of missing teeth, the treatment will vary from individual crowns to complete dentures.
The treatment begins with a full dental and radiological study which, thanks to our latest technology 3D equipment (link to 3D) allows us to plan the treatment with great detail. This way it is possible to put implants with minimally invasive surgery that greatly reduce postoperative pain and inflammation.
The treatment is completed with the embodiment of the prosthesis that begins when the implant is already integrated into the bone (after 3 weeks).
