What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small cylindrical titanium fixtures that are inserted into the bone and serve as artificial roots for missing teeth, on which crowns or prostheses are then placed. The principal objective of dental implants is to recover lost function and aesthetics in an effective, comfortable and safe way.

Why is the Maxillofacial Institute a benchmark centre in Implantology?

Implantology is a constantly evolving science. The panorama of years ago is nothing like that of today: the techniques for dental implant placement, the surgery and postoperative time and the technology used are completely different. Over 20 years of experience in Implantology reflect the considerable change that this science has undergone.

The medical team at the Maxillofacial Institute has developed new surgery protocols and designed techniques that have enabled them to achieve a success rate -dental implant survival- of 98.5%.

Dental implants offer the following advantages over other types of treatments: natural results that provide an obvious aesthetic improvement, indefinite durability, good health and comfortable oral hygiene.

Three differentiating values of the Maxillofacial Institute

  • Customised solution for each patient: today, dental implant placement is offered indiscriminately in numerous odontology and oral surgery clinics. However, each patient must be approached on an individual basis, with consideration given to their anatomical situation (missing teeth, amount of bone remaining, compromised soft tissue, etc.) and the patient’s expectations.
  • Bone deficiency no longer an obstacle: owing to the Maxillofacial Institute’s experience in placing special implants, such as zygomatic implants, and also thanks to the latest reconstructive surgery and bone regeneration techniques incorporated by the Maxillofacial Institute, a healthy life and an attractive smile is an achievable dream for every patient. What was previously an impossible obstacle to overcome is now something predictable and safe.

  • A new day, a new smile: with previous protocols the time between placing a dental implant and fitting the crown ranged between 5 and 8 months. Now, with surgical guidelines obtained with the help of digital 3D planning software, new techniques such as the All on 4 and the All on 6, together with the improved quality of dental implants, “Teeth in One Day” has gone from being an advertising slogan to being a reality in daily clinical practice at the Maxillofacial Institute.
