Dr. José María Hernández Guisado, maxillofacial surgeon of Top Doctors , will talk about Implantology.
What is the implantology and what type of implants do?
Implantology is a technique that we can say that it is mature over the years, rather than contrasted and that basically consists of restoring to the patient all those teeth that have been lost, either by natural causes or by any type of pathology, such as trauma, tumor pathology or any other cause that has led to the loss of teeth. We perform both implantology that we can call conventional, those simple or simple cases, such as those cases in which there is a great loss of bone and need the contribution of this type of tissue to be able to place the implants. These are the cases that we can call advanced implantology or complex implantology.
Is there a patient who can not receive this treatment?
Currently we can say that practically 100% of patients are candidates for implant treatment, whether they are simple cases in which no complementary technique is needed and complicated cases in which, by means of surgical techniques added to merely inserting the implant, we do performance of bone tissue gain. Obviously to place an implant is necessary bone and as the bone has been lost with the natural passage of time or the trauma that the patient has suffered, we can put bone where there is not so that the patient is a candidate to place an implant, place a denture on implants. Or place the implants in anatomical areas to avoid these bone graft surgeries, as is the case with zygomatic implants .
