    Dental tourism, dental implants

    Every time, more people decide to travel abroad to have their dental treatments done. This is called dental tourism, dental implants are the most demanded dental surgery.

    Dental Implants to replace missing teeth :

    Compensating the detrimental effects of losing one’s teeth often means patients will try and get new ones into place because when one tooth or more are missing, all the others will forcibly need to perform some extra work.
    This overuse may then induce deteriorations and even jaw joint problems.
    Chewing disorders will eventually be aggravated by some dental shifting when the remaining teeth loosen and food chunks will be trapped more easily into the mouth, provoking caries and gum problems.
    Other stomach disorders may arise due to this new incorrect chewing pattern.
    The missing tooth bone structure will gradually become atrophied when losing its function.
    Aesthetics also has to do with this decision, as image plays an important part in the way our relatives, friends and colleagues see us.

    Before, patients suffering from Periodontal diseases, would end up losing all their teeth, despite specific and regular dental treatments to preserve them, making it necessary for them to use a complete and removable denture during the rest of their life.

    Today, thanks to the dental implants and the new techniques, the fatal consequences of bone loss that prevented from a proper dental restoration.
    We can now provide optimum aesthetic solutions.

    The Maxillofacial Surgery and Odontology Department at Vithas Xanit is headed by the internationally renowned specialists Dr. Cuevas and Dr. Queipo. During the past 25 years they have operated and placed dental implants and prosthesis over implants using minimally invasive techniques and providing the best results in all aspects to their patients. Constant professional updating in techniques is their key element to offer more comfortable and foreseeable solutions.

    The latest equipments like the tridimensional control studies, showing the final simulated results, also help diagnose and plan the restoration.

    This dental surgery is performed by a maxillofacial specialist though it does not entail major risks for patients. Post-surgical slight discomfort can easily be controlled with an anti-inflammatory and analgesic treatment, when needed.

    A wide range of dental treatments and alternatives can be provided after a personalized and imperative 3D study. During the test, the overall dental and jaw joint situation and the individual aesthetics is assessed for every patient.

    Once the dental implant has been fixed to the bone by our maxillofacial surgeon and once some recuperation time has elapsed, our odontology specialists will record the new jaws measures. Because we only use a range of top range materials to fix the dental implants, results are very natural and adapted to ever particular case.

    When rehabilitation is completed, patients will need maintain a proper daily hygiene and attend regular specialized revisions to ensure maximum and long term durability.
