We are committed to the highest possible quality for the most perfect results.
Together with our dental implants, our training and experience give us this quality guarantee.
We follow the scientific protocols that have been developed and studied the most since the inception
of modern implantology over 40 years ago. We have been performing dental implants in Porto since 2001.
Excellence and Quality FOR ALL.
Reconstruction with dental implants can be performed on anyone, even without bone mass, using either dental implants or guided bone regeneration techniques using Piezo Surgery and PRGF Plasma technology.
Nobel Guide is a modern concept applied to implantology. It consists of very precise computerised diagnosis and the creation of surgical guides, which allow us to place each tooth implant with a precision of 0.18 mm, in the ideal place and with no margin for error.
Using the Nobel Guide concept, dental implants are fitted without cutting the gum, almost without bleeding and without the use of stitches.
Surgery and trauma times are much shorter, allowing us to fit the dental implants and fix the teeth in one hour, during a single consultation.
Ceramic teeth or crowns that we fit over the implants contain no metal; they are 100% ceramic from inside out.
Zirconia makes crowns stronger than metal. In terms of aesthetics, the result in more perfect and more natural teeth.
Ceramic teeth are bolted to dental implants with 100% gold bolts.
Although they are invisible, these bolts are subjected to great forces and are made from gold.
Taken from the patient’s own blood, Plasma Rich in Growth Factors, or PRGF, is a futuristic technology that allows faster healing.
It increases the success of dental implants and allows bone mass to be increased for the installation of dental implants where it wouldn’t otherwise be possible due to lack of bone.
It has many other applications, as well as the advantage of being fully bio-compatible, as it is removed from each patient’s blood and used as soon as it has been extracted.
Put simply, this is the replacement of lost teeth with a new tooth,
by fitting an artificial root or dental implant. It is a simple process, carried out by a team of dentists with specialist training.
The choice of materials is of particular importance, and our team works with the best dental implants.
The treatment can involve one or two phases: 1st, the fitting of the implant and 2nd, the fitting of the tooth. For most treatments, these two phases can be carried out at the same time. In these cases, the teeth are fitted at the same time as the dental implants.
If more than 1 tooth is missing, fewer implants may be necessary than the number of teeth to be replaced. For example, if 3 adjacent teeth need to be replaced, 2 implants can be made, one at each end, and 3 ceramic teeth joined together as a bridge can be fitted.
a good diagnosis and planning process is always necessary so that the necessary number and type of dental implants can be selected to correctly replace the missing teeth.
Bio-mechanical aspects are very important to aesthetics, functionality, comfort and durability of the implant treatment.
Removable teeth are known as overdentures and, 2 to 4 dental implants are used.
We use a ball-based fixation system in the lower jaw, that fits into the dental implants.
For the upper jaw, we use a ball-based fixation system on a bar that joins the 4 dental implants.
This type of denture must be removed at least once every 12 hours for cleaning and to allow the structure inside the mouth to be sanitised.
Fixed dentures on dental implants are those that cannot be removed, even by the implantologist using specialist devices.
Between 4 and 8 implants are normally used for this type of denture, depending on anatomy, age and functions in each case.
The aesthetics, function and durability of these types of fixed structures depend on the number and type of dental implants that are used. Between 4 and 6 implants are sufficient in most cases. Protocols requiring fewer implants can be used if there are anatomical limitations (lack of bone structure). In these case, the All-in-4 protocol can be used, with just 4 dental implants, or the Branemark Protocol, with just 5 dental implants.
Fixed denture types can vary and can take the form of:
Hybrid Dentures or Emerging Dentures.
- Hybrid dentures are structures containing artificial teeth and gums, allowing a natural smile to be simulated; these are only used when there has been major bone loss.
- Emerging dentures are structures that contain only the teeth adapted to the implants and gum. They are used when there is a good amount of bone available and they generally require a higher number of dental implants.
Fitting of 100% Zirconia dental implants in Porto. The new age of aesthetic dental implants is metal free, with surprising results. The phasing out of titanium dental implants in favour of these new 100% Zirconia implants allows both the tooth and its root to be white and aesthetically pleasing. This system means that there is no possibility of scar lines appearing on the gum.
