Over 50000 implants successfully placed
in our dental centres in the UK and SPAIN
Dental implants are titanium screws that mimic the root of a tooth and are fixed to the jawbone to replace missing or damaged teeth. The implant serves as a base onto which the crown or dental prosthesis is placed, i.e. the aesthetic replacement that is visible once in place.
One of the main advantages of this procedure is treating tooth loss, whether it is replacing one tooth or several missing teeth. When a tooth is missing, it can be replaced with a single implant; where two or more teeth are missing, several crowns or a bridge can be placed across the implants; and should all teeth be missing, a full prosthesis can be placed across 4 or 6 implants.

Dental Implant insertion process
During the first visit, we will perform a complete and thorough evaluation diagnosis using the latest dental technology to determine your dental situation and provide a comprehensive, personalised diagnosis with the best treatment options.
On the appointed day, the patient is given local anaesthesia before the dental implants are inserted in a simple operation in our clinic. This minimally invasive procedure is undertaken using computer-guided surgery.
The implant then integrates into the bone (a process known as osseointegration) before the definitive prosthesis is placed. This process tends to take 4-6 months. In some cases, a provisional prosthesis can be placed on the same day as the operation.
Once enough time has elapsed for the implant to integrate into the bone, the restoration process is performed and the definitive dental prosthesis (the visible part of the tooth) is added.
After the operation, a protocol of annual visits is arranged to check and ensure the health and vitality of the implant and surrounding soft tissues.
On occasion, the features of the patient’s mouth make dental implant placement more difficult. This could include bone or periodontal defect that make implant placements difficult, our clinic is perfectly suited to solving these complex cases.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Computer-guided surgery is one of the advances that offers the most significant improvements in implant dentistry.
Using cutting-edge technology, a computer and 3D imaging, allows the surgeon to plan the surgery beforehand and insert the implants in the exact place required. This improves intervention precision, requires minimal incision and improves the post-operative healing period.
