In this article we will guide you through everything you need to know about this innovative treatment, from what implants are to how to care for them.


What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are placed in the maxillary or mandibular bone to replace the root of missing natural teeth. They function as a solid base to place crowns, bridges or fixed dental prostheses, restoring the function and esthetics of your smile.

Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants offer a wide range of benefits that make them an excellent option to restore your smile:

  • Permanent solution: Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
  • Natural aesthetics: Implants blend in perfectly with your smile, giving you a natural and radiant appearance.
  • Improved bite: Implants completely restore the function of your bite, allowing you to chew, speak and smile in complete comfort.
  • Self-esteem and confidence: Recovering a healthy smile will help you feel more confident and happy with yourself.
  • Improved oral health: Implants prevent deformation of the mouth and help maintain good oral hygiene.

How are dental implants placed?

The placement of dental implants is a surgical procedure that is performed in several stages:

  1. Evaluation and planning: The dentist will evaluate your oral health and perform a CT scan to determine the ideal implant location and technique to be used.
  2. Implant placement: The dental implant specialist will make an incision in the gum and place the implant in the bone.
  3. Osseointegration: The implant needs time to integrate with the bone. This process can take several months.
  4. Placement of the crown, bridge or prosthesis: Once the implant has been integrated with the bone, the dentist will place the crown, bridge or dental prosthesis.

Which dental implants are best for you?

Dental implants are made of titanium alloys (mainly titanium, aluminum and vanadium) of varying degrees of purity. The higher the purity of titanium, the better its biocompatibility, fatigue resistance and elastic behavior in the mouth.

However, choosing the right implant depends not only on the material, but also on several factors such as:

  • The experience and training of the oral implantologist: It is essential that the specialist is trained in the technique of implant placement and in the selection of the most appropriate type of implant for each case.
  • Bone characteristics: The type of bone and the area where the implant will be placed are key aspects to consider in order to choose the implant with the correct dimensions and characteristics.
  • The specific needs of the patient: Each patient has different needs and expectations, so the oral implantologist must evaluate each case individually to determine which type of implant is most suitable.

Therefore, there is no single type of dental implant that is best for everyone. The important thing is that the oral implantologist is a professional with experience and adequate training, who can evaluate your particular case and select the implant that best suits your needs and characteristics.

  • Consult a trusted dental implant surgery specialist for advice on the type of implant that is right for you.
  • Do not be guided only by the price of the implant. The quality of the material and the experience of the oral implantologist are the most important factors to consider.
  • Be well informed about the procedure and aftercare following implant placement.

How to take care of dental implants?

To ensure the long-term success of your dental implants, it is essential to follow a strict oral hygiene routine:

  • Brush teeth three times a day with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Use dental floss once a day to clean between the teeth and the implants.
  • Visit the dentist at least three times a year for professional dental cleanings and regular check-ups.

What are the risks and complications of dental implants?

Like any surgical procedure, dental implants carry some risks and complications, such as:

  • Infection: Infection is a rare complication, but can occur if postoperative care instructions are not followed.
  • Nerve injury: In some cases, the surgical procedure to place an implant can damage a nerve, which can cause pain or numbness.
  • Implant failure: In rare cases, the implant may not integrate properly with the bone and may need to be removed.

How much do dental implants cost?

Frequently asked questions about dental implants: We answer your questions

The ideal age to place a dental implant is generally between 17 and 18 years old, since it is in this range when the bone structure of the person has completed its development.

However, this range may vary depending on each particular case.

The placement of dental implants is usually painless, as it is performed under local anesthesia. At Marlon Becerra Dentistry, we use modern and effective anesthetic techniques to ensure a comfortable experience during the procedure.

However, in some cases, patients may experience mild discomfort after the procedure, such as swelling, tenderness or pain. These discomforts are usually temporary and can be controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Dental implants are very secure and durable fixtures, but in some cases they can become loose.

The most common causes of loosening of dental implants are:

  • Stress: Clenching the teeth, also known as bruxism, can exert excessive force on the implants and cause them to loosen.
  • Infections: If proper oral hygiene is not performed, bacteria can accumulate around the implant and cause an infection that can damage the bone supporting the implant.
  • Health problems: Some diseases, such as diabetes or osteoporosis, can affect bone health and increase the risk of implant loosening.
  • Procedure-related factors: In some cases, errors during implant placement or the use of low-quality materials may increase the risk of loosening.

To prevent loosening of dental implants, it is important:

  • Follow your dentist’s instructions for post-implant care.
  • Maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Attending appointments scheduled by the specialist for dental check-ups and cleanings.
