1 - ANAMNESE
The first step is to set an appointment for an oral examination where you will be offered treatment alternatives and the best solution for your individual needs and expectations.
2 - DIAGNOSIS
Imaging, Tomography, and X-ray examinations are generally required to determine implant sizes and positions in total arch rehabilitation.
3 - WAX-UP (MAQUETE)
The photos and models are used to plan the optimal setting of teeth to be replaced for aesthetics, function, and speech. This will make the end result fully predictable.
Once this period of preoperative procedures is completed, we schedule your surgery to install the implants and your initial set of teeth.
SURGICAL AND PROTETIC PROCEDURE
4 - IMPLANTS
After extraction of the teeth (if any), the bones of the jaws are regularized and the implants placed in the same session. The surgeries are closed with resorbable sutures and impressions of the implants are taken to the next stage.
5 - TEETH TEST
The teeth are fixed in wax and tasted in the mouth within 4 to 24 hours after surgery. Any necessary adjustments are made as needed and your preference. You can see how your teeth will feel before we’re done.
6 - PROSTHESIS
Your replacement teeth are inserted the day after your approval. The teeth are always premium (imported) and built from a high-impact acrylic for optimal aesthetics, perfect function, comfort and ease of cleaning.
In the weeks and months that follow, we will follow your case with periodic occlusal adjustments, so that the implants have no complications.
By about six months, your gums must be fully healed and your implants must be fully osseointegrated in your bone. At this point, we take some more impressions from your mouth to prepare a final set of permanent teeth.
This permanent prosthesis will be made with porcelain or acrylic teeth, and will have a titanium bar inside to provide you with additional strength. This definitive prosthesis will last for decades and will look like your natural teeth and gums.
