Dental implants have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry, offering a long-lasting and effective solution to replace missing teeth. But when is it advisable to opt for a dental implant? From our dental clinics in Malaga and TorremolinosGross Dentistas, we explain it to you.

Dental implants, as a solution to dental problems

They are titanium structures that are surgically inserted into the jaw bone or jawbone to replace the roots of missing natural teeth. An artificial crown is then placed on top of these implants, which resembles natural teeth in color and shape. This approach provides a solid and stable foundation for restoring dental functionality and aesthetics.

Recommendations Before and After a Dental Implant

Before undergoing a dental implant procedure, it is important to follow a few recommendations to ensure the success of the treatment. First, a thorough assessment of the patient’s dental and general health is performed, as well as the bone quality in the implant area. This may involve X-rays and scans to assess bone structure and plan treatment accurately.

During the dental implant procedure, local anesthesia is used to minimize any discomfort. After surgery, it is essential to follow the dentist’s instructions to properly care for the treated area and promote good healing. This may include using painkillers as needed, as well as adopting a bland diet for the first few days.

After the implant has fully integrated with the surrounding bone, the custom dental crown is placed over the implant. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene, brushing and flossing regularly to avoid the buildup of plaque bacteria that can lead to complications.

When is a dental implant recommended?

Dental implants are an excellent option for restoring dental functionality and aesthetics in a variety of situations, including:

  • Missing teeth: When one or more teeth have been lost due to tooth decay, periodontal disease without timely periodontics, or traumatic injuries, dental implants can provide a permanent and natural solution.
  • Improved aesthetics: Dental implants not only restore dental functionality, but also improve the aesthetics of the smile by replacing missing teeth naturally and harmoniously with the rest of the denture.
  • Denture Support: They can serve as a solid base for attaching dentures, such as bridges or full dentures, providing greater stability and comfort to the patient.
  • Bone preservation: Dental implants help preserve bone structure in the jaw and jaw by stimulating bone growth and preventing bone volume loss that can occur after losing a tooth.
  • After surgery: A dental implant is recommended after surgery to remove cysts and the affected tooth. This is because the removal of the tooth and cyst can leave an empty space in the jaw, which can affect the function and aesthetics of the mouth. A dental implant can help restore masticatory function and aesthetic appearance by replacing the missing piece and providing stable support for adjacent teeth. However, the suitability of the implant will depend on the individual assessment of the patient by the dentist or oral surgeon.

Dental implants are a highly recommended option to restore dental functionality and aesthetics in cases of tooth loss. However, it is important to consult with our dentist to determine if implants are the best option for each individual case and to follow the recommendations before and after the procedure to ensure successful results. If you need more information, you can make an appointment and we will assess your case.
