Within the dental surgery two of the most common treatments are dental implants and gums diseases. IMED Odontology is formed by a team of highly skilled odontologists, specialized in dental surgery. You can request an appointment without obligation to know the dental implants cost in Spain or a periodontal surgery treatment in Spain.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the solution for patients in good oral health who have lost one or more teeth, is consists on an artificial tooth root made of titanium that a dentist gently places into the patient jaw.

We know how confidence about your teeth can affect how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.

Dental implants have proven to be the answer to many patients with dental problems. By replacing just one tooth in your mouth, they enable the restoration of a natural smile, improving patient comfort and confidence.

Placing of the implants is carried out at the surgery, involving a simple operation under a normal local anaesthetic.

Under proper conditions placement by a dentist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime.

Gums Diseases

There are two main types of gum diseases:

  • gingivitis.
  • periodontitis.

Gingivitis occurs when brushing and flossing techniques are not carried out effectively, this allows plaque, a soft sticky substance made up of harmful bacteria to build up along the gum line. The bacteria in it can result in the infection and inflammation of your gums; they will look red and puffy. This condition is known as gingivitis and nearly all adults suffer from this to some degree. Bleeding when brushing or flossing your teeth is one of the earliest signs of gingivitis. Plaque left for any length of time will start to harden and form calculus or “tartar” on your teeth. This cannot be removed by tooth brushing alone, and requires specialist scaling by your hygienist or dentist.

At this early stage gum disease is reversible. Regular visits to the hygienist will help you return to and maintain gingival health.

When gingivitis is left untreated it will progress to a more severe condition known as Periodontitis. This is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. Here the bacterial infection progresses to the deeper supporting tissues of the teeth known as the periodontal tissues which includes the bone. As the disease progresses, this bone supporting the teeth is lost. The teeth become loosened, abscesses can form and teeth may eventually be lost.
