Dental implants, often composed of pure titanium, are designed to replace original roots. This enables Dental Asensio to position an aesthetically pleasing and functional artificial piece where a natural tooth once was.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a common choice for those who have lost a tooth or teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, or some other reason. The dental implant procedure involves the placement of the implant under a local anaesthetic, usually causing minimal discomfort. These implants fuse with your jawbone, providing stable support for artificial teeth, and ensuring they won’t slip or shift in your mouth – a critical benefit for eating and speaking.
4 Dental Implant Care Tips
- Complete oral hygiene: Brush after every meal and floss daily. Know the type of toothbrush that suits your dental needs.
- Reduce or quit smoking: Smoking weakens the bone structure and can reduce implant efficacy.
- Regular dentist visits: Schedule appointments every 3 months at Dental Asensio for routine cleanings and to monitor implant conditions.
- Avoid hard foods: Chewing hard items like ice or candy could cause damage to dental crowns and natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Conservative procedure: They don’t require altering teeth adjacent to the replacement site.
- Universal applicability: An implant can be an option for anyone, as long as there is an initial oral health evaluation.
- Prevents chewing and tooth movement issues: Implants address the gap left by a lost tooth, preventing neighbouring teeth from shifting.
- Boosts self-esteem: A dental implant can restore your smile and confidence.
- Normal hygiene care: Dental implants don’t require special care beyond regular brushing and periodic dentist check-ups.
- Applicable even with insufficient bone.
The Dental Implant Process
The implant process involves inserting a ‘screw-like’ structure into the gum and jawbone base. This acts as the new tooth root and integrates with the bone throughout about 2 to 3 months. Once the bone-implant union is confirmed, we place a pillar or base for the new tooth or prosthesis to grip, ensuring a natural-looking result.
Cost of Dental Implants
The dental implant cost can vary depending on the patient’s oral health status and the number of implants needed. Typically, the price for a quality complete dental implant in a Spanish dental clinic, like Dental Asensio, ranges between €1000 and €1500.
