Top 10 Q&A about dental implantation

What are dental implants?

Implant is a high-tech product made of titanium, which is installed in the bone to create an artificial root of the tooth. Dental implants are the most effective method of replacing missing teeth. In Diente Sano, we use Bio Horizons implants manufactured in the USA, which today are considered to be some of the best in the world of dentistry.


Top 10 Q&A about dental implantation


What would happen without treatment?

Your jaw bone will begin to contract and deform due to a lack of stimulation. Loss of teeth will affect your smile and eventually will change the shape of your face, leading to premature aging.


Who would be the candidate for treatment?

Dental implants can be placed in most adults. If you are missing one tooth or more, then that is already an indication. Sign up for the free visit and our doctors will explain all the risks and benefits of implants and will help you understand if the implants are right for you.


Is it painful?

No. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic. Patients may feel a mild discomfort that usually passes in a couple of hours. In our dental clinic in Barcelona we use modern anesthetics, which are selected individually. After the surgery, you will be placed on antibiotics and pain killers so the pain will not bother you.


How quickly can I get back to work after the surgery?

You can return to work the next day, unless the doctor says otherwise. You may be prescribed medications (antibiotics and pain killers) to alleviate any minor discomfort that may occur.


How long does the surgery last?

The procedure takes only 30-60 minutes, depending on the location and the number of implants.


When will I get new teeth?

This is individual and depends on each patient. As a rule, you will have some temporary teeth replacement until your implants are integrated with the bone. The doctor will give you an approximate time estimate, based on your individual case.


How does one take care of implants?

The basic hygiene will do the trick. Caring for your implants consists of brushing your teeth and using dental floss. Regular visits to the dentist are necessary for long-term health and success.


How long does the implant last?

Implants can serve many years if they are taken care of properly. They may well last for 40 years. Yet again, this is individual.

What is the probability of success of the treatment?

BioHorizons implants, which we install in our clinic, have an extremely high average success rate (99.2%). However, each body is individual and no one can guarantee an absolute success to everyone. Besides individual characteristics, it is crucial that the patient follows all the instructions, proper oral hygiene and the absence of bad habits (mainly smoking).
