What is the application of dental implants in a day?
The same day technique or application of dental implants in a day means that a patient who arrives at our clinic, clinic M & M; we are going to do a 360 ° service, in which in 24 hours we are able to extract all the pieces that are lost or in poor condition, recover the bone, condition all the bony surfaces, place implants, dental fixings, and place teeth. That is, the patient leaves in one day, in 24 hours, with all his teeth placed. That's a big step forward compared to traditional techniques because, eye, we're not talking about temporary teeth to use. We are talking about fixed, permanent teeth, with high quality materials.
What advantages does it offer compared to other methods?
The advantages of placing teeth in a day, of the same day technique that we do in M & M clinic are multiple. This treatment has a powerful, very powerful emotional charge. It is important to know that the patient leaves in 24 hours with a new denture, a functional and aesthetic denture, as was done before a treatment of many months. It has multiple advantages: it has biological, psychological and even economic advantages, because first the patient does not go through the phase of being toothless, of being mutilated in his dentures. It has a biological advantage because we have higher rates of integration of our implants when we place the teeth and place them on the same day. Tissues adapt much better to dentures. And it has important economic advantages because we can minimize costs. It is a treatment that meets all the conditions to be the star treatment in implantology today.
Is it a definitive treatment?
The vocation of treatment with prostheses same day is the vocation to be permanent teeth of long duration. We place permanent teeth of the long duration of a material, composite or acrylic, very strong with titanium base that in the great majority of cases work as definitive prostheses and that will have the typical wear that have any of the definitive dentures of that same style that are made today. There are some cases in which the dentures can be replaced after two, three, four years, by a monolithic titanium or monolithic composite dentures that have much more hardness. But, as I say, most cases do not need this last treatment.
As for the postoperative care that a patient must have, I can tell you that they are minimal. We, during the first 24 hours, take care of the patient, we pamper him, we have him here in our clinic, we have a recovery center, we apply a mask that keeps the body at a constant low temperature, making a lymphatic drainage, to reduce the inflammation. In addition, our interventions are done with the presence of an anesthesiologist. This, in addition to reducing intraoperative tension and discomfort, also reduces inflammation and improves post-operative because we apply anti-inflammatory medication before, during and after the intervention.
What care should the patient have after its application? Is there any risk?
The risks of this intervention are the typical risks derived from any intervention that involves local anesthesia, such as that which would be used to extract a tooth and that has no greater risks, that is, there may be risks of slight bleeding, inflammation and any risk derived of a minor surgical intervention as it is usually the same day intervention that we do in M & M clinic.
