The most common cause of tooth loss is periodontal disease or periodontitis, a bacterial disease caused by poor or ineffective hygiene. Periodontitis can be aggravated by factors such as tobacco, and it is often chronic and painless and that if not properly diagnosed and treated leads to tooth loss.
When infections attack dental implants it is called peri implantitis and can lead to your loss.
With the boom we have experienced of placing uncontrolled dental implants, implants with low prices and placed by inexperienced hands or without sufficient quality of product and treatment or on a misdiagnosed basis this disease is increasing worryingly.
The problem is that with these diseases not only the teeth are lost, but also the supporting tissues of the teeth, which are the gingiva and the bone, are often lost, and it often occurs in a very destructive, rapid and serious way.
Before attempting to recover the missing dental piece requires a correct clinical and radiological diagnosis in 3D to determine if these tissues should be replaced before placing an implant or crown.
To recover the gingiva we have several possibilities, from using small layers of the own tissues of the mouth to substitute tissues collagens, that with microsurgery are implanted in the site that are needed by the expert.
Recovering the bone may require processes of different complexity, using cells from the patient’s own bone to synthetic bones, which with regenerative techniques and in expert hands can be replenished in many cases up to full. Trying to perform these techniques without sufficient mastery can lead to a superinfection that will worsen the situation causing further tissue destruction.
These techniques for resolution are supported by the advances in biomaterials and advances in genetic engineering that allow us to use from platelet-rich plasma to growth factors.
Once the bone is restored, we will be able to rehabilitate the patient’s mouth with dental implants, with computer-aided dental implantology, techniques in which Dr. Carmen Pomares is one of the pioneers at an international level and with a wide range of possibilities adapted to all Needs.
Dr. Pomares recently returned from the USA where she has attended the major advances in the field of regenerative therapies to ensure that these tissues can be recovered with advanced techniques performed by expert hands, since to carry out these techniques is necessary An extensive training and a great technological commitment for its realization.
The Perio & Implant Clinic has everything necessary to perform these treatments with excellent results being a benchmark in the sector. The Perio & Implant team covers all the specialties, mainly dedicated to the treatments of gums and bone regeneration, computer implants, smile design and advanced aesthetic dental rehabilitation.
