Los implantes dentales son pequeños pernos, generalmente hechos de titanio, que se insertan en el hueso de la boca y actúan como raíces artificiales para los dientes que faltan. Una vez colocados, se les coloca una corona o prótesis dental para restaurar la función de masticación y mejorar la estética dental.

En nuestra consulta, ofrecemos cuatro opciones para restaurar los implantes dentales. Las dentaduras postizas implantosoportadas requieren seis implantes tanto en el maxilar como en la mandíbula. Un puente removible requiere entre 8 y 10 implantes en el maxilar y la mandíbula. Un puente fijo requiere entre 10 y 12 implantes en el maxilar y diez en la mandíbula. Si solo necesita reemplazar un diente, podemos colocar un implante con una corona.

La primera cita es una cita diagnóstica, durante la cual tomamos radiografías, fotos, impresiones y realizamos un examen dental completo. Además, ofrecemos la opción de sedación consciente para aquellos pacientes que experimentan ansiedad dental durante el procedimiento.

Si usted o un ser querido necesita atención dental pero necesita ayuda con el financiamiento, reúnase con el Dr. E. Ahono Gildersleeve para averiguar si Brockley Dental acepta seguro dental y cómo pueden ayudarlo a obtener la atención que necesita.

The Mini Dental Implant Advantage

Immediate Results

Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.

Less Healing Time & Fewer Visits

Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits.

No More Decay

Mini implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay or periodontal disease.
