Don’t let missing teeth
limit your life.

Dental Implants are small titanium fixtures which are placed in the jaw bone. After bonding, they serve as a new root for replacement teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.

Since titanium is biocompatible with living tissues, your body accepts it naturally. Dental implants are the best and most permanent way to replace missing teeth.

Who is a candidate?

Dental Implants are appropriate for almost anyone who is missing teeth or at risk of losing teeth because of cavities, gum disease, accidents, etc.

In such patients, normal eating and speaking habits are affected and in many cases individuals are completely unable to wear dentures. This loss of function is the primary reason dental implants are recommended. Along with improving an individual’s ability to chew and enjoy food, dental implants can make the patient feel more secure as speech and appearance are often improved as well.

During the first appointment, specialized diagnostic studies are performed to determine the ideal treatment for each person.

After careful evaluation of your health history, Dr. Alvarez will alert you to any conditions that may affect your treatment. Remember, age is not a factor.

      How safe and effective are they?

      You can rely on your new teeth to look, feel and function like natural teeth for years to come. There is no need to cut down healthy teeth and dental implants keep the bones from shrinking after losing your theeth.

      Research and documented scientific studies have proven the effectiveness and long-lasting success (over 30 years) of dental implants. If this treatment is provided by an experienced implantologist, your implants could last a lifetime.

      Dental implants have a survival rate of approximately 99%. The training and experience of your Implantologist also contributes to overall survival rates.

      Treatment phases

      First Surgical Phase (Implant Placement)
      Under Local anesthetic Dr. Alvarez places dental implants into the jaw bone with a very precise surgical procedure. The implant remains covered by gum tissue while fusing with the jaw bone.

      Second Surgical Phase (Implants Uncovery)
      After approximately six months of healing. Under local anesthetic, the implants root is exposed and a healing post is placed over the top, so that the gum tissue heals around the post.

      Prosthetic Phase (Teeth)
      Once the gums have healed, an implant crown is fabricated and screwed down to the implant.

      Are Implants rejected by the body?

      No, Implants are made of the most biocompatible material known which have undergone extensive testing over a period of several years. Since these materials are biocompatible metals, such as titanum, there is no likelihood of causing an antigen-antibody response which could cause rejection similar to that which sometimes occurs with heart and kidney transplants.

      Dental implants are made of titanium which is the most accepted metal in the human body. In the unlikely event an implant fails it can usually be replaced by a new implant.

      From a few months to a couple of years, depending on the simplicity or complexity of your dental-oral situation.

      Some patients are required to keep removable bridges out for a few days. Some however, can have their teeth all the time.

      No, most patients report minor swelling, and no pain at all. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions for proper healing.

      Most patients only require one or two days of rest. You can continue with your life normally.

      Yes, to ensure you are healing fine without complications.

      As our lifespan increases, the need for some type of permanent dental replacement system becomes very important to our overall health. Dentures and removable bridges have obvious problems: They are loose and unstable. Implants can provide people with dental replacements that are both functional and esthetic.

      With new bone grafting/regeneration techniques, almost anyone can be a good candidate for treatment.

      Bone Grafting.- Sometimes, when resorption has excessively reduced the jawbone, it can be rebuilt through modern bone grafting techniques. Bone grafts can build up or fill in jawbone defects allowing the placement of dental implants. These techniques represent one of the greatest advances in modern dentistry.

      Modern bone grafting techniques can be nothing short of a miracle for those needing bone replacement. Should Dr. Alvarez recommend this treatment you will be given further information on the type, location and amount of graft needed.

      Yes. Research shows that in many cases implants are actually stronger then natural teeth. Compared to removable teeth, studies show implant supported teeth have 100 percent or better chewing efficency. Dental implants can make it possible for your to enjoy your favorite foods, improve your nutrition and your appearance!

          Cost of treatment.

          The cost of implant treatment depends upon the number and type of implants placed and the type of replacement teeth needed. For example, replacement of a single tooth using implants costs about as much as a dental bridge. The bridges necessitate “cutting down” adjacent teeth for crowns. Implant treatment does not. More complex treatment, such as bone grafting, will add to the cost.

          The improvement in your self-confidence, comfort, eating habits and appearance will make dental implant treatment one of the best investments you’ve ever made!

          The number of implants used for a given restoration is most important in terms of the success of the restoration, not the overall fee. It is certainly much more cost effective when the same dentist both places and restores a patient’s dentition. A survey of 350 patients after completion of their implant treatment revealed that not only was it worth the investment, but that they would happily do it again.

          Guarantee
          Since there are health conditions and habits out of our control, the treatment can’t be guaranteed. However, the implant manufacturer covers the implant for 10 years.

          Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

          Ideally one implant per missing tooth, but it depends on the type of bridge.

          Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Alvarez could offer you diferent options like fixed, fixed-removable or removable bridges.

          According to the quality and volume of your bone you can have different types of teeth:

          • FIXED – Removed periodically by your dentist.
          • REMOVABLE – Easy access for hygiene. The implants under it secure the bridge in place
          • FIXED REMOVABLE – Works like fixed with the easy access for hygiene.

          Implants can be used as retention for your existing dentures, eliminating mobility and improving your chewing ability.

          As soon as you lose a tooth, otherwise the bone starts shrinking.

          Gum disease will need to be controlled, before placing the implants, improving your esthetics and function.

          For life, as long as you maintain a healthy mouth, wich is why we recommend periodic cleanings.

          No more difficult than your original teeth.

          Today’s implant treatment enables you to have your new teeth look, feel and function like your own. Even though others will be unaware you have dental implants, many patients are so pleased they tell everyone they know.
