To know whether or not you are eligible for dental implants read on:

However, despite its clear advantages, not everyone is a candidate for implants, although the main requirement for this is to have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. Following placement, the patient must make a commitment to maintain healthy structure by meticulous oral hygiene, as well as visiting the dentist regularly, all this for the implant to be a successful long term solution for a happier, confident smiling patient.


Dentures often are uncomfortable because they “move” across the mouth causing irritations. Implants are very comfortable because they are permanently attached, no more removing the dentures every night.

As a simple way of viewing this is a customized dental mouth guard that holds drill holes in the exact position needed for the your dental implant.

But still here is some technical specifications on how this works, and for what types of implants:

  1. A guided surgery is designed and organized to make each instrument easily identifiable and placed within the easy reach of the clinician.
  2. The precision-engineered handled drill guides are provided in a Standard Format for placing implants up to 04.2mm, and Wide Format for placing implants up to 05.0mm.
  3. The 24 drill bits are in lengths of 17mm, 21mm, 25mm and 30mm, and in diameters from 2.0mm. This allows the clinician to use guided surgery to place a very broad range of implant sizes.

Different Types of Dental Implants

1. Endosteal implants

These are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. After the surrounding tissue has healed successfully, it needs more surgery to connect a small post to the original implant. Finally, an artificial tooth is placed (or more, as appropriate) on the previously mentioned pole. At the end each tooth can be individual or grouped in a bridge or denture.

2. Subperiosteal implants

These implants consist of a metal frame also placed in the jawbone, but the difference is that they are placed below the gums. It happened healing of the gums, the frame becomes fixed to the jawbone. The posts are attached to the frame so that protrude through the oaks. Finally and as endosteal implants, artificial teeth are placed on the posts.

Teeth in an Hour Dental Implants

At Dental Alvarez we perform the procedure called “Teeth in an hour”, one of the best methods by which patients can have their dental implants installed in one visit.

The great advantage of this method is the speed thereof, while one for ordinary dental implant takes a time of between 2 and 6 months to be completely ready (from the first visit where it is placed until the last surgery) through Teeth-in-an-Hour this period is reduced to a single surgery that may last less than one hour, while the preparation phase consists of between 2 to 4 weeks.

  • Surgery Teeth-in-an-Hour only lasts an hour
  • The procedure does not require incisions or sutures
  • The discomfort like pain is minimalIt takes a few visits to the dentist to complete treatment
  • The denture looks and feels natural
  • Play functionality and aesthetically pleasing
  • Patients can return to normal activities (eg, eating) almost immediately

Teeth-in-an-Hour is a trademark of Nobel Biocare and both the technology and the software used to produce it are patented by Nobel Biocare.


Next best thing to healthy, natural teeth. Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Another of the most advanced treatments worldwide is known as the All-on-4, the concept of all-on-4 consists of an effective full dental restoration using only 4 titanium implants to support the prosthesis immediately, a great improvement on the regular 8, 10 or 12 dental implants used before.

By placing a pair of inclined posterior implants, larger implants can be used in smaller bone volume, which increases the contact between bone and implant in order to reduce the need for bone augmentation vertical, which in turn improves the support of the prosthesis.

Remember the success of this dental restoration does not rely on the number of implants installed but on the quality of the pieces and the bone structure where they are placed.

This type of implants placed with some degree of inclination, in conjunction with prosthesis has been used for over a decade and have always been very successful.

The All-on-4 significantly shortens the treatment time and yields quick results which together gives us greater patient satisfaction. Modern odontology can help you achieve a better quality of life with strong teeth that maintain the aspect and functionality of natural teeth.
