Dental Implant Prostheses

What are Implant Protheses?

The Maxillofacial Institute offers all types of dental implant restorations, using CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing) technology that ensures a high quality of dental prosthetic treatment.

After carrying out personalised planning based on the characteristics of each patient, the future dental prosthesis is then designed on computer. Once the desired aesthetic and function has been achieved, the final prosthesis is completed.

Dental implant prostheses can be classified into:

  • Single prostheses: These replace a single missing tooth and imitate the natural aesthetics to achieve harmony with the adjacent teeth.
  • Partial prostheses: These are fixed, and replace more than one missing tooth, recovering both lost function and aesthetics.
  • Complete prostheses: The function of these prostheses is to rehabilitate the entire mouth when all the teeth are missing from one or both arches. Depending on each individual case, these prostheses can be fixed (requiring 6 to 8 dental implants) or removable (requiring 2 to 4 dental implants), allowing the patient to remove them for better oral hygiene. The choice of one over the other will depend on each case.

 The materials used at the Maxillofacial Institute to make the implant prostheses are latest-generation ceramics that guarantee excellent aesthetic results.
