Implants are like the roots of teeth created in titanium to replace teeth lost due to trauma or periodontal disease.

Implantology should be performed in cases of loss of one or several teeth of the arch through periodontitis, fractures and injuries that can be replaced by implants. We can place implants from the age of 18, when the growth stage stops, to advanced ages. In most cases we can load the prosthesis on implants, either one or several.


It is done in a session with local anesthesia. The duration of the intervention depends on the number of implants and the difficulty. In cases where patients are medically compromised or have uncontrollable fear we use conscious sedation with an anesthetist.

In patients to whom we place few implants does not usually bother or inflame. In cases of placement of implants in the upper or lower arch or both, discomfort may appear and a slight inflammation that is counteracted with the prescribed medication.

Advances in implantology

Implantology has advanced thanks to better radiological techniques such as 3D tomography and computer programs that allow us to perform a simulation of surgery on the computer. The techniques of minimally invasive implant surgery in which it is not necessary to open a flap and make small incisions and guided bone regeneration techniques. Finally, the research on the surfaces of the implants that has reduced the time of osseointegration.
