2 November, 2019

One of the recommended treatment options by dentists when a tooth loss occurs is the placement of dental implants in Mexico. Implants can replace the part to prevent the functionality and stability of the denture, which is involved in the processes of nutrition and phonation, as well as play a key role in dental aesthetics are lost.

The techniques used for implant placement, and the characteristics thereof, have been modified over time, thanks to technological advances in the medical field and today the most commonly used are those composed by a small screw, which is fixed in the bone for quality results and durable. On this occasion, we will explain the process early so that our visitors have a general idea of ​​what to expect at the dental clinic of our center Tijuana Plastic Surgery Health & Wellness Bazaar.

Before you begin, it is important to clarify that the information presented here is for guidance only and is not a substitute for any reason the opinion of a dentist. Thus, the materials and techniques, and the characteristics of the procedure explained here can reach vary from one case to another, responding to the needs of each patient according to the preferences of the treating specialist. If you have lost a tooth and want to restore it, our best recommendation is to directly consult a dentist to through a complete and accurate diagnosis of your case, we indicate what treatment they can offer the best results.

The process of placing dental implants is surgical and is performed at different stages in a staggered manner. This means that there is carried out the whole process in one intervention and the treatment time takes different agents may vary, as is the recovery of the patient. In surgery use of anesthesia, is done to reduce discomfort and to facilitate the work of the dentist, and it can apply a local anesthetic or an intravenous or oral sedative opt for the use of nitrous oxide, which is you can consult your dentist to decide on surgery.

There are four stages in the process of implant placement is divided. The first stage is planning procedure in the technique and the type of implant to be placed, and the remaining stages to surgery, which as mentioned is determined, is performed stepwise. In the planning stage, the dentist is responsible for conducting a case study of the patient and design a personalized treatment plan. It is at this stage when the dentist takes x-rays and three-dimensional CT scans and models of the patient’s mouth to determine the best option for him, the location and the number and type.

There are different types of dental implants in Mexico, but generally used today are shaped screw to facilitate adherence to the bone. The materials used to manufacture implants are biocompatible, to reduce the risk of rejection of the patient’s body and to allow it to sit perfectly to the bone. Therefore, the material used is titanium coated with other materials that increase the level of adhesion of the implant. Implants have a design made up of different parts, a body, a cover screw, a healing abutment, a prosthetic connection, and transfer, each of which meets very specific functions that are discussed in greater detail in future publications.

In the second process step, corresponding to the first step of the surgery, the implant is placed in the bone below the gum, to replace the root of the missing tooth. The incision in the gum is small so that the healing process more agile and that patients do not experience great discomfort. After the implant is inserted the dentist takes an impression of the teeth to make the crown be placed on the abutment and should be a waiting time for healing because the next step in the procedure is to remove the overlying gingiva implant. As expected, the time it takes to heal varies from one person to another and while some patients only a couple of weeks is required, in others it may have to be let up to three months before you reach the required level of healing. During the waiting time, the dentist can place crowns or bridges for the dental function is not affected and that no inconvenience arises from the absence of a tooth.

When the overlying gingiva is removed begins the fourth process step, corresponding to the placement of the crown on the implant abutment. The reason why the overlying gingiva is removed at first is because through the folds formed as a result of healing, the dentist can access the implant to check if set, if it is functional and is ready to receive the crown, which in design and color should be as close as possible to natural teeth so that there is an aesthetic problem.

Besides, the implant placement procedure through step surgery as just described, others are performed in a single step. The difference of these is the type of implant that is used and the material used in their manufacture, which has a metallic edge protruding from the gum and is anchored in the bone, ie, it is a procedure in which the workpiece is not it embeds depth. Another existing option is to reduce the number of steps through the connection of the implant with a temporary crown pillar, this to reduce the waiting time for healing. On future occasions describe these treatment options and as we promised, we will discuss the different types of dental implants in Mexico existing.
