Why is it important to replace missing teeth?

In some cases, a tooth cannot be saved and will need to be extracted. At Laura Fernández Dental Clinic, we can recommend several options to replace missing teeth.
Missing teeth can cause:
Aesthetic changes due to missing teeth.

Before making a decision, it is best to know what options you have.

What options do I have to replace the dental pieces that I have lost?

Removable Prosthesis
Prótesis Removible
The purpose of the removable prosthesis is to replace one or more teeth that have had to be extracted. This prosthesis can be removed from the mouth by the patient himself.
Fixed Prosthetics
Prótesis Fija
They are prostheses that are permanently cemented in the mouth. To carry out this treatment, it is necessary to carve healthy teeth (main inconvenience with respect to other techniques).
Dental implants
Implantes Dentales
A dental implant is a titanium component that replaces the root of a natural tooth and the crown or prosthesis is placed on it.

What types of removable dentures are there?

Prótesis Completa img

It is the most economical solution to be able to restore the mouth of totally edentulous patients to whom, for medical or economic reasons, we cannot place dental implants.

Its adjustment in the mouth is solely and exclusively in the gum and this entails a difficult adjustment and worse adaptation for the patient, unlike other techniques.

They are prostheses that restore only a part of the teeth that have been lost, keeping the patient some of his natural teeth.

As in the case of the complete prosthesis, it has a worse adaptation for the patient than other techniques.

What types of fixed prostheses are there?

To carry out the collation of implants, the following procedures must be carried out:

conscious sedation

In conscious sedation we use intravenous sedative drugs to control anxiety. We use it above all in long and complex treatments such as surgeries.

In conscious sedation we use drugs that are assimilated very quickly by the body. This allows the dose to be controlled at all times and the patient to recover his normal state very quickly when the doctor has finished the treatment.

To practice this type of conscious sedation, we do it with the help of a team of anesthetists, who will be in charge of regulating the dose based on your needs, as well as monitoring the patient's heart rate at all times.
