It is the surgical technique that inserts a biocompatible titanium implant as a substitute for the root of a missing tooth. This material is not rejected and is attached to the bone.
This procedure is performed at the clinic and it usually takes about an hour for a single implant and up to three hours for several ones. We apply either local anesthesia, or a conscious sedation administered by an anesthesiologist if that’s the first choice of the patient in cases of anxiety or systemic diseases.
Previous to surgery, we administer prior medication that includes antibiotics and painkillers, along with cleaning, feeding and post-operative medication instructions.
We set regular visits to make sure that Osseointegration (acceptance of the implant and its firm anchoring to the bone) is correct. This process might vary from 3 to 6 months, according to the amount of implants, the implant location, the type of bone along with the patients clinical history regarding any other such previous surgical interventions, (bone graft or sinus lift). Once this process is completed, we proceed to place the prosthesis on the implants.
