This treatment has no limit of age.
In order to detect oral diseases and avoid any unpleasant pain and discomfort, annual revisions are indispensable. Your dentist will give you the best advice.
Dental implants consist in placing a titanium post in the bone jaw to replace missing teeth. This titanium post will constitute the new root of the artificial tooth, and it can actually replace one or more roots.
Depending on the case, we will proceed placing a porcelain crown or prosthesis. Surgical intervention will be performed with local anesthesia.
It is important to note that dental implant care is not recommended for all patients, and a prior careful examination is always required before a proper diagnosis can be made.
Pediatric dentistry, also called Children's dental care, is the field of dentistry caring about children's teeth, from primary teeth (0 to 6 years old) to permanent teeth (6 to 12). Pediatric dentists are experts in the interception of the development of precocious abnormalities in maxillary positions and orthodontic problems, and they will refer the patient to the orthodontist and/or maxillofacial surgeon in order to modify or stop the bone's growth. Pediatric dentists also detect bad habits and try to change them into good habits, and they can do restorative treatments in case of tooth decay or even also use a fissure sealant to prevent future pathologies. Of course, they will also inform about dental care procedures to obtain healthy growth of the oral cavity.
It provides a clear and accurate picture of the buccal health of the patient, making diagnosis easier while allowing the detection of developing problems at the same time.
Our organism produces proteins called Growth Factors, which have an essential role in the process of cell regeneration.
The therapeutic use of PRGF stimulates and accelerates the body's own healing process and tissue regeneration, and this is why it is indicated for implant placements and oral surgeries. It basically stimulates bones' and other essential cells' growth to heal wounds.
In Dental Artés, we have the technology and the professional experience required to obtain Plasma Rich in Growth Factors from a small amount of blood.
