what is a dental implant?

Dental implants mimic nature. They are designed to anchor firmly to the bone and hold the tooth in place. An implant is a small piece made of titanium that is integrated into the human bone. We place implants to replace teeth. We can replace one, multiple or all teeth. The teeth on implants resemble ours in functionality and aesthetics. The implants used at Nart Dental Clinic have a very high long-term survival rate. Quality and reliability are very important for our team.

How long is the implant treatment? It is painful?

A dental implant begins with its placement in the bone and in some cases the teeth on the implants can be placed at the same time. In most situations, the waiting time to put the tooth on the implant has been reduced to 8 months. The new implants have reduced the need for major surgeries and bone regenerations , and so the discomfort after placing them. In addition, the current techniques of local anesthesia and sedation make this procedure painless.

What subsequent care does an implant require?

Having an impeccable oral hygiene and absence of gum infection before and after placing an implant is vital. It is also necessary to take care of teeth and gums after placement. All of them, without distinction between natural and artificial.

What innovations in implants improve treatment?

Short and / or narrow implants represent a great advance for our patients. They allow us to avoid large and invasive bone regeneration surgeries, many economic costs, treatment times and postoperative discomforts. These short and narrow implants also prove to be equally effective in the long term, but the treatments are faster, cheaper and much less traumatic .
