On this page, we will explore the different types of implant prosthetics, the numerous benefits of dental implants, the phases of treatment and the conditions that may prevent a dental implant.

Types of Prosthetics on Implants


Implant with Single Prosthesis

Crowns are a popular option for replacing a single missing tooth. Fixed on an implant, they provide a natural appearance and restore chewing function.

Implants with Partial Prosthesis

For replacing multiple teeth, fixed implant bridges are an effective choice. They are anchored to the implants, offering stability and durability.

Implants with Complete Dentures

Complete dentures, also known as overdentures, are a solution for patients who have lost all of their teeth. They attach to the implants, providing greater comfort and stability compared to conventional dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants


Improved Aesthetics

Dental implants offer natural aesthetics, helping to restore the patient's self-esteem and confidence.


Restored Masticatory Function

With the stability provided by implants, chewing capacity is reestablished, allowing for more efficient and safer eating. Many of our patients choose implants due to the difficulty in adapting to the removable prosthesis while chewing. This is, therefore, one of the main factors in deciding on dental implants.

Bone Preservation

When there is tooth loss, whether due to extraction or loss, a process of degeneration of the bone structure occurs in the region of that element. As if our body understands that there is no longer a need for bone there to support our teeth. Implants stimulate the jaw bone, helping to prevent bone loss.


Durability and Comfort

Dental implants are long-lasting and provide comfort similar to that of natural teeth.

Treatment Phases


1. Assessment and Planning

The first step involves a complete oral health assessment and the development of a personalized treatment plan.


2. Implant Surgery

During this phase, implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone. A healing period is necessary to allow the implants to integrate.


3. Placement of the Prosthesis

After healing, the prosthesis is attached to the implants, completing the restoration process.


4. Maintenance and Monitoring

Proper care and regular visits to the dentist are essential to ensure the longevity of dental implants.

Who Cannot Have a Dental Implant?


Although dental implants are a viable option for many people, some factors may prevent the procedure from being performed. That includes:

Uncontrolled Medical Conditions

Patients with uncontrolled medical conditions, such as unstabilized diabetes, may have restrictions on dental implants.


Excessive Smokers

Smoking can negatively affect the healing and integration of implants, and it is advisable to stop smoking before the procedure.


Severe Bone Insufficiency

In cases of significant bone insufficiency, it may be necessary to perform bone grafts before implants are placed.



Pregnant women are generally discouraged from having non-essential surgical procedures, including dental implants, during pregnancy.


In summary, dental implants offer an effective and long-lasting solution to restoring oral health and quality of life. If you are considering this option, consult an oral health professional for a personalized assessment and detailed information about the procedure. Remember, the key to successful dental implants is proper care and maintenance over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why have implants?

The implant is an ideal solution for patients with one or more teeth missing. Compared to the removable prosthesis (denture), the implant prosthesis is more comfortable, as it fixes better and does not move inside the patient's mouth when speaking and chewing.

Is implant expensive?

Like all scientific advances, implant dentistry was born with higher prices and became cheaper over the years. Nowadays, we have patients from all social classes treating us. It is an affordable treatment.

How long will the treatment take?

For simpler cases of single implant, it is possible to carry out the entire processwithin a week.
At your first consultation, our specialist will evaluate your case and order necessary tests. In the second consultation, with the test results in hand, it is possible to define the treatment plan according to the patient's health needs and financial planning. Then, we started scheduling the surgery and making the prosthesis. Ultimately, the speed of treatment depends much more on the patient than on us. 

Is it possible to do top and bottom?

Yes, both are possible. The lower prosthesis is mainly recommended for cases of complete dentures. This is because adapting the removable lower prosthesis (denture) is very difficult. Even though it is well made, the removable lower prosthesis is difficult for the patient to adapt to. Therefore, the lower prosthesis on implants is a very important alternative.

What exam do I need to take to plan my treatment?

Typically, we order a full CT scan of the face. This exam allows us to evaluate bone density and determine the regions of best support for the prosthesis.

Can I have implants even without any teeth?

He can! This type of application we call "Protocol". Our team will evaluate your bone structure to determine the number of screws needed for fixation. Typically, it can vary from 4 to 8 screws per prosthesis (lower or upper)

Does every patient have an indication for implants?

No, the patient must first have the necessary bone structure to support the screws. Furthermore, the patient must be healthy to undergo surgery, with blood pressure and blood sugar controlled, among other things.

How much does an implant cost?

The cost of the treatment will depend on the number of screws to be placed, the material of the prosthesis (resin or porcelain) and the need for a graft. As more materials and more procedures are needed, the total cost naturally increases.
