Dental implants are a safe and durable alternative to reaplace lost teeth. They are biocompatible titanium screws that are surgically inserted into the jawbone, below the gurns, and on which crowns or prostheses are then placed to duplicate the teeth’s appearance and function.


By interfacing into the jawbone, the implant provides good support for future dental posthesis. At Global Dent we carry out an entire diagnostic protocol to determine if your gum and bone tissue are suitable for this modern rehabilitation technique. If not, we will propose other treatments to improve the condition of your jaws and gums that will allow the osseointegration (titanium bonding to the bone).

Types of dental prostheses on implants:

Removable prostheses on implants: The main feature is that the prothesis are placed on implants and can be removed to be cleaned. They are usually placed on edentulous patients.

Fixed prostheses on implants: They are inmovable dental prosthesis that is held into place on the implants, and are usually made of porcelain, creating a natural appearance. They do not need to be removed for cleaning.


What are the adventages of dental implants?

Restore full oral function:

-Correct and efficient chewing.

-Greater comfort. Firm hold. Are not at risk to fall out or move during mastication.
-Longer durability. With good care, dental implants last for many years.

Phases of dental implant treatment

1. Implant study. This is a personalized evaluation of the case, in which various aspects are studied, such as the quantity and quality of the maxillary bone, among others. X-rays are necessary here and may include 3D scans or computerized axial tomography (CAT). This evaluation helps to select an appropriate position of the implant in the bone.

2. Placement of dental implants. A surgical procedure that includes the application of anesthesia, the preparation of the bed where the implant will be placed, the placement of the implant and, if necessary, the wound will be closed with stitches.

3. Bone and tissue integration of dental implants. After the surgical procedure, it takes 2 to 6 months for the titanium implant to fuse with the bone.

4. Placement of dental prostheses. Once the implant has been integrated into the maxillary bone, the new teeth will be manufactured. Tests are performed to ensure esthetics and function. And finally the prosthesis cemented or screwed to the implant are placed.

5. Discharged splint recommendation. Due to a lack of periodontal ligament, the implants and the prostheses can suffler overloads from the masticatory forces. The discharge splint promotes relaxation of the jaw muscles, hence, it provides a good protection.

6. Maintenance and hygiene. Once the dental implants are installed, it is necessary to maintain a neat daily oral hygiene. Finally, it will be necessary to regularly visit the dentist and the hygienist, to ensure the stability of the implants, as well as the crowns or prostheses that have been placed on them.
