Resumen de colocación de implante

El procedimiento quirúrgico

El procedimiento para colocar un implante toma 30 a 60 minutes for one implant and only 2 a 3 hours for multiple implants. El número de citas y el tiempo necesario, variar de paciente a paciente. The surgeon will bring great precision and attention to the details of your case.

Prior to surgery, you may receive antibiotics and for greater comfort, intravenous sedation or nitrous oxide (gas de la risa). These options are discussed with you at your consultation appointment. Un anestésico local se administrará para adormecer el área donde se colocará el implante.

When you are comfortable, the surgeon makes a small incision in the gum tissue to reveal the bone, creates space using special instruments, and gently inserts the titanium implant. The top of this implant is often visible through the gum. Sometimes it is better in the early stages of healing to have the implant covered by the gum tissue.

La fase de curación

Now the healing begins. The length of time varies from person to person, depending upon the quality and quantity of bone. En algunos casos, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed. The surgeon will advise you on follow-up care and timing. After the initial phase of healing, the surgeon places an abutment (support post) o un casquillo de cicatrización sobre el implante durante una breve visita de seguimiento. This allows gum tissue to mature and provides access to the implant.

De vez en cuando, impressions are made at the time the implant is placed. This enables the crown to be ready when the implants have healed. How long your mouth needs to heal is determined by a variety of factors. Follow-up care (one to four appointments) is usually needed to ensure that your mouth is healing well and to determine when you are ready for the restorative phase of your treatment.

It may be beneficial to perform a soft tissue graft to obtain stronger, more easily cleaned and natural appearing gum tissue in the area around the implant. This process involves moving a small amount of gum tissue from one part of your mouth to the area around the implant. Most often, it is a brief and relatively comfortable procedure.

Whether it’s one tooth or all of your teeth that are being replaced, your dentist will complete the restoration by fitting the replacement tooth (corona) to the dental implant.

¿Cuándo son dentales implantes colocados?

Implants are often placed several months after extraction. At times, un implante puede ser colocado inmediatamente después de la extracción de un diente. This may involve a little more risk, pero simplifica el proceso no tendrá que esperar a otra cita para colocar el implante. When infection or other problems with the bone are present, la colocación del implante inmediato no es el mejor tratamiento.

If your tooth has been missing for some time, the adjacent support bone is likely to grow thinner and shrink. This occurs because the root of the natural tooth has to be present to stimulate the bone. As much as one third of your jaw’s thickness can be lost in the year following tooth extraction. If you are missing enough bone, you may benefit from having additional bone grafted into the area. This ensures the implant will be adequately supported when it is placed in the jaw.

¿Cuántos implantes ¿Necesito?

Most frequently, one implant per missing tooth is placed. Because many of the larger teeth in the back of your jaws have two or three roots, the most common approach is to replace missing back teeth with larger implants.
