Dental implants are small titanium devices that correctly positioned in the bone of the jaws allow to place a crown on top to replace the lost tooth. They are recommended in edentulism (lack of one or more teeth). If possible, it is advisable to place the implant at the same time that the tooth is extracted in order to modify as little as possible the anatomy of the maxilla and the gum.
Dr. Xavier Rodríguez Ciurana has extensive and acknowledged experience in this type of treatment. He has corroborated with leading research groups and universities at an international level.
At Dental Esthetic BCN we will advise you on what type of implant and when its placement should be done to achieve the best results. To ensure a pleasant experience we have the help of a team of anesthesiologists that will help you feel better and facilitate the work of the maxillofacial surgeon. The application of the BOPT technique with implants (conical abutments) facilitates the gum to stabilize and avoid its contraction, which would uncover the implant over time. Likewise, we will advise if it is necessary to perform a graft so that both the implant and the gum function correctly.
The part of the implant that represents the tooth in the gum can be made of metal-ceramic or zirconium according to the esthetic needs and the forces, which the implant is subjected to.
Once the treatment is finished we will instruct you regarding proper cleaning to keep your implant free of infection. We will supervise this process during the dental hygiene maintenance that must be performed periodically to conserve not only the implants, but also the teeth.
Only original material for each procedure is used in order to ensure its proper functioning and viability.
