The scientific development of this treatment has made it possible to get reliable results that provide aesthetic and functional changes to the patient who has lost teeth.
The dental implant is a titanium screw that is accepted by the body (bone and gum) as its own. Thus, the bone grows around it quickly, producing a stable and lasting union called Osseo integration.
It is necessary the patient to understand that the most important factor in the placement of dental implants is to have adequate bone volume and quality along with appropriate gum for positive long-term results, obviously including the aesthetic results that are every day more demanding.
Dr. FERNANDO BRICENO, at DDS dental group, is an expert in oral and maxillofacial surgery and bone regeneration process, who has an MA at the University of the Andes in Colombia, and has developed materials that have been fully tested, marketed and patented as adjuncts in procedures for dental implants.
For rehabilitation of one or more missing teeth, by way of an implant, it is required to place a titanium screw in the bone. A ceramic crown, in most cases, or some highly aesthetic or biomaterial, or a prosthesis in aesthetic and biocompatible materials for solving different problems such as bone regeneration is then placed on the implant.
We perform an adequate clinical review of the patient (physical examination of the mouth, bite, facial type), we consider each patient's expectations and give adequate counseling to find the solution to each case. Initial examinations are valued as a team with the specialist in oral rehabilitation and we use diagnostic methods, among which include x-rays, 3D digital scans, photographs, dental casts.
Once the clinical and radiographic assessment is completed by the team of specialists, a written report with the possible options of treatment for each case surrender is provided. Possible ways of treatment that may properly solve your problem is presented, and the more appropriate treatment in each situation is then chosen. Each option will have its respective quotation with the rates for each of the components and treatment steps.
Once the treatment is planned, the following step is to schedule the appointments with the specialists in charge of it. Surgical procedures may be performed in-office under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation, some cases require general anesthesia in a clinic.
Each case will be followed in great detail to comply with the agreed schedule.
