Cuando se colocan implantes dentales?

Implants are often placed several months after extraction. At times, an implant may be placed immediately after extraction of a tooth. This may involve a little more risk, pero simplifica el proceso no tendrá que esperar a otra cita para colocar el implante. When infection or other problems with the bone are present, colocación de implantes inmediatos no es el mejor tratamiento.

If your tooth has been missing for some time, el hueso de soporte adyacentes es probable que crezca más fino y encogimiento. This occurs because the root of the natural tooth has to be present to stimulate the bone. As much as one third of your jaw’s thickness can be lost in the year following tooth extraction. If you are missing enough bone, usted se puede beneficiar de tener más hueso injertado en el área. This ensures the implant will be adequately supported when it is placed in the jaw.

La fase de curación

Now the healing begins. The length of time varies from person to person, depending upon the quality and quantity of bone. En algunos casos, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed. The surgeon will advise you on follow-up care and timing. After the initial phase of healing, the surgeon places an abutment (support post) o una tapa de cicatrización sobre el implante durante una breve visita de seguimiento. This allows gum tissue to mature and provides access to the implant.

De vez en cuando, impressions are made at the time the implant is placed. This enables the crown to be ready when the implants have healed. How long your mouth needs to heal is determined by a variety of factors. Follow-up care (one to four appointments) is usually needed to ensure that your mouth is healing well and to determine when you are ready for the restorative phase of your treatment.

It may be beneficial to perform a soft tissue graft to obtain stronger, more easily cleaned and natural appearing gum tissue in the area around the implant. This process involves moving a small amount of gum tissue from one part of your mouth to the area around the implant. Mayoría de las veces, it is a brief and relatively comfortable procedure.

Whether it’s one tooth or all of your teeth that are being replaced, your dentist will complete the restoration by fitting the replacement tooth (corona) to the dental implant.
