At Oris Dental Clinic, we believe that teeth contribute to our quality of life and are an important part of our personality. They give us self-confidence and enable us to enjoy food, laugh easily and speak clearly. They also give us confidence in everyday situations and a natural, positive feeling of vitality. However, healthy teeth may not last forever, taking into account that – among other factors – they become worn through use.
Losing a tooth is common, whether due to the tooth or gum becoming diseased (e.g. periodontitis) or an accident that occurs while playing sports or going about our daily business.
Dental implants in Les Corts
Comfort, confidence and a restored appearance.
Implant dentistry is the specialist field that provides solutions for missing teeth. Dental implants are able to replace the entire tooth, from crown to root. Below, we explain in greater detail what implant dentistry is and the benefits of dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
An implant is an artificial root, made from 100% titanium, which is inserted into the bone tissue of the upper jaw (maxilla) or lower jaw (mandible). In the second stage of the process, your dentist will attach the artificial tooth (or teeth) to this implant.
It is important to bear in mind that fixed implants are an excellent alternative for patients who have a removable prosthesis, as the comfort and functionality of fixed teeth is superior to that of removable dentures.
Are they as safe, strong and secure as real teeth?
Oris Dental Clinic specializes in implant dentistry, and we can assure you that implants are a safe, secure and long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. Both the functionality and aesthetic quality of the missing teeth can be restored in their entirety.
It is important for the patient to be in good general health in order to have implants. There must also be sufficient bone to accommodate them. All of these factors are assessed on a case-by-case basis by the dentists who specialize in implant dentistry here at Oris Dental Clinic.
If the patient does not have sufficient bone, complementary techniques should be taken into consideration, such as the placement of a bone graft beforehand.
