Dental implants

We perform both simple and advanced dental implants, ranging from the rehabilitation of one or several teeth, to complex cases such as severe deformities or situations of scarse bone and soft tissue.

Unit of implantology and maxillo facial surgery

The Unit of Implantology and Maxillo facial Surgery of Clinica Cuevas Queipo is formed by highly specilised medical professionals with great experience in both simple and complex cases.

Our team is proud of the trust that more than 40.000 patients have already deposited in us in the last 25 years, which enables us to accumulate the knowledge which we share with other professionals.

Thanks to our patients we are what we are and other clinics are able to improve their treatments.

The Unit of Implantology and Maxillo facial Surgery is directed by Dr Alberto Cuevas Millán and Dr José Montes Jiménez and has a great team of prefessionals: hygienists, auxiliaries and specialists in relaxation techniques and conscious sedation, a very effective system for those people who suffer from the famous fear of the dentist.

What are dental implants?


Dental implants are artificial dental roots, usually made from chemically pure titanium, which serve to support artificial teeth created to measure according to the characteristics of each person.

Any loss of teeth over time produces problems that not only affect other dental pieces, but also involve the ears, stomach, neck or joint of the jaw. Thanks to dental implants we can avoid these problems. The result of an implantology intervention is an artificial tooth, perfectly functional and aesthetically in accordance with the mouth in which it is implanted.

The main advantage of dental implants is the immediate improvement of speech and chewing but, in addition, dental implants carry aesthetic improvements that provide extra security and confidence in the patient.

Kinds of dental implants


Depending on each particular case, we recommend one type of implant or another.

If the situation allows it, implants can be placed in one day, a provisional prosthesis that is fixed 24 hours after surgery and which, after a few months, is replaced by a definite fixed prosthesis.

On the other hand, if the patient has lost the bone in which to support the tooth, we can use zygomatic implants, a type of implant that is fixed in the malar bone (cheekbone) or Basal Implants, which are fixed with a great retention and allow us to place several teeth in a single session, even in cases where there is very little bone present.

Some systems let us reduce the number of screws per tooth. For example, thanks to the locators, we can reinforce a complete denture with only two implants.

On the other hand, there is also the All on Fourque system which allows us to place all the dental pieces in one day, using only 4 implants.

In any case, the choice of the type of implant will depend on the results of the study of the mouth.


Manufacturing and implementation of dental implants


We have been using CAD / CAM technology for years, a highly precise system that allows us to work with the advantage of knowing what a patient’s smile will be like at the end of the treatment.

This technology enables us to create a 3D model of the mouth, from which we design a smile. The interesting thing about this three-dimensional reconstruction is that it allows the patient to see what the final implant result will be like before the treatment begins.

Once the 3D reconstruction is completed, a high precision milling machine is in charge of creating the crowns (artificial teeth) from a block of biocompatible material.

CAD / CAM technology helps us drastically reduce manufacturing and waiting time, and brings us, as professionals, a kind of efficiency which is superior to any other system.

Finally, dental implants are placed by surgery. During the first three to six months, the patient must wear temporary dentures while the implants gradually attach to their jaw.

Once this process is completed, a second phase will begin, in which the teeth are permanently replaced.

The best option to replace a lost tooth

Bridges and removable appliances rest on neighboring teeth, causing wear and tear on the extra load. In addition, unlike implants, these solutions do not stop the bone loss generated by tooth fall. Dental implants integrate perfectly into the mouth and therefore are the most practical and effective solution when it comes to replenishing a tooth.

Our highly specialised medical team has extensive experience in implant procedures, both simple and complex, and also from the clinic we offer several financing facilities adapted to your needs.
