Dental implants are artificial roots that are installed, immersed or implanted in the patient's mandibular or maxillary bone, thus creating a solid piece to be able to place dental prostheses, either partial or total, with the aim of restoring the function And aesthetics lost or deteriorated.


What types of dental implants are there?

In the history of dental implants various shapes and types have been developed, always looking for a fast, intense and stable implant bone union over time. In this scientific development, different materials have also been studied, arriving at the conclusion that the best material for the manufacture of implants is titanium, since it is considered the most biocompatible metal that exists with human bone.

What are the advantages of immediate loading implants compared to dental implants?

When we place the implants, we need to wait a few months for the implants to integrate into the patient's bone. There is a technique called immediate loading implants , which consists of placing a temporary prosthesis the same day the implants are placed, allowing the patient to rehabilitate his function, chew with comfort and safety, rehabilitate his aesthetic appearance and practice a perfect phonation immediately to the Placement of implants, without the psychological trauma of not having teeth over a period of time.

At the same time, it should be noted that implants for immediate loading are not the same as those usually placed for deferred loading, so a special connection between the implant and the provisional tooth must be taken into account.


How long does a dental implant or immediate loading implant last?

Although Implants are assumed to be long-term treatments, it is not possible to determine the half-life of an implant in the mouth because its durability depends on many factors associated with the patient's characteristics.
