Single Tooth Dental Implant
In the case of a single tooth implant, the treatment is very quick (usually taking less time in the chair than a crown or root treatment), is pain-free, and the recovery is normally simple and straightforward. Most patients report less discomfort after an implant is placed than the following extraction by their dentist.
You do not have to be left with a visible gap during any stage of your tooth implant treatment, and we will discuss your options for filling these gaps carefully with you at your assessment. The final outcome will be a replacement tooth that looks, feels and functions like one of your own teeth. You simply have to clean it using standard tooth-brushing and flossing techniques.
There is no reason a successful, well-maintained dental implant should not last a lifetime. The titanium structure and design of the implants we use are especially strong to withstand the forces of chewing. Compare this to a conventional dental bridge attached to the teeth either side of the gap – your dentist will have to cut down the teeth in order to make room for the bridge. Along with the increased load they also now bear, this reduces the lifespan of bridges significantly. When a bridge fails, one or both of the supporting teeth usually fail, leading to an ever-widening gap.
A denture is rarely an ideal replacement for missing teeth. Dentures are often uncomfortable, can similarly damage the adjacent teeth and gums, and will usually become loose over time as your gums continue to shrink beneath them. In addition, dentures need to be removed at night time, something that is simply becoming less socially acceptable.
It is important to replace missing or failing teeth, as with fewer teeth on which to chew, the stresses on the remaining teeth increase and reduce their lifespan. Unopposed teeth can change position and interfere with the way you bite and chew, so causing further damage in the future.
Bridge (Multiple) Dental Implants
A bridge is an implant solution to replace two or more missing teeth. In the posterior area, for example, since more chewing force is needed, for 3 missing teeth, 3 implants are used. Depending on the area to be rehabilitated and the size of the implants, it will be necessary to place more or fewer implants. When there is enough bone, two long implants are used to replace 3 missing teeth.
Therefore, in the anterior areas (incisors and canines), two implants can be used to rehabilitate three or four teeth, but in the posterior areas (molars), being the maximum force masticatory zone, a greater number of implants are preferable (for example, three implants for four teeth or three implants for three teeth), always taking into account the available length and volume of the bone.
Do you know that we have dental implants without metal?
They are made of zirconium which are 100% metal free and fully compatible with soft tissue.
Materials We Use
Dental Clinic Crooke Marbella is a pioneer in the development and implementation of innovative solutions. Recently we have published the advantages of our materials, a combination developed by our technical team that improves the strength and natural look of the teeth, achieving greater stability and resistance to stains.
- More resistant and safer
- Aesthetically more beautiful
- Clinically tested
- Favor the formation of soft tissue
- More stability
Full Arch Implants
We have many dental implant solutions which are for full upper and/or lower arch implants. With our free consultation we produce a Implant Study including 3D scans to decide which solution is best suited for the patient. We have a Peek Composite option, Zirconia dental implant option and zygomatic option for patients who have low bone density in the jaw.
