Después de la colocación de implantes Preguntas

What can I use for teeth while the implants heal?

Many options are available, and they are tailored to your specific requirements. If you need a replacement tooth while the implants are healing, temporary removable teeth or a temporary bridge can be made. If all of your teeth are missing, we can usually modify your present complete denture or make you a new temporary denture. If you would prefer non-removable teeth during the healing phase, implantes transicionales temporales por lo general se pueden colocar junto con los implantes permanentes, y los dientes temporales se pueden hacer y se inserta el mismo día. Dependiendo de su situación particular, algunos implantes pueden ser colocados y “cargados” inmediatamente. This means a temporary or permanent replacement tooth can be placed on, or shortly after, the day the implant is placed.

What are the potential problems after dental implant surgery?

Although it is natural to be concerned about the pain that may be caused by these procedures, most patients do not experience severe or significant post-operative pain. Pain medication and antibiotics will be prescribed for you to make your recovery as easy as possible. De vez en cuando, some people develop post-operative infections that require additional antibiotic treatment. Even though great care is taken to place the implant precisely, occasionally adjacent teeth are injured in the placement process. Adicionalmente, there is a chance that the nerve in the lower jaw, which provides sensation to your lower lip and chin, may be affected. If you are missing quite a lot of bone, it might be difficult to place an implant without infringing on the nerve space. Although we take great care to avoid this nerve, occasionally it is irritated during the procedure, resulting in tingling, numbness or a complete lack of sensation in your lip, chin or tongue. Usually these altered sensations will resolve within time, but they can be permanent and/or painful. If you notify us of post-operative numbness as soon as possible, it will allow us to manage your care in the most appropriate way.

How long will the implants last?

Implants usually last a long time. When patients are missing all of their teeth, long-term studies (más de 30 años) mostrar una tasa de éxito del 80 al 90 por ciento. For patients missing one or several teeth, Estudios recientes muestran una tasa de éxito de más del 95 por ciento, which compares favorably with other areas in the body that receive implant replacement (such as hips or knees). sin emabargo, if one of your implantes dentales either doesn’t heal properly or loosens after a period of time, you may need to have it removed. After the site heals (or on occasion at the time of removal), another implant usually can be placed.

When are the replacement teeth attached to the implant?

Otros tiempos, pilares personalizados deben estar hechos de oro o un material cerámico del color del diente. Como puedes imaginar, estos pilares personalizados hechos se suman al coste y tiempo de tratamiento involucrados. Which abutment to use is a decision that often cannot be made until after healing is complete and impressions have been made.

The number of appointments and the amount of time required for each appointment is different for each patient. No two cases are exactly the same and regardless of the number of teeth replaced, the work must be completed with great precision and attention to detail. If you are having only a few teeth replaced, as few as three short appointments may be required. Between appointments, vamos a necesitar tiempo para completar el trabajo de laboratorio necesarios para hacer que sus dientes de reemplazo.
