Dental implants are made of titanium, one of the most widely used metals in dentistry and medicine today. Since scientific studies have proven its high degree of biocompatibility and bone osseointegration, it has become the most suitable material for the development and design of dental implants.
But, before continuing to explain the composition of dental implants, what is titanium? And who discovered its usefulness for dental implantology? In 1982 the Swedish orthopedic surgeon and research professor, Per-Ingvar Branemark, conducted scientific studies on the biocompatibility that titanium would have in dental implants.
Titanium, a metal similar in color to steel but much lighter, more moldable and firmer, during Dr. Branemark’s studies, demonstrated great long-term success in biocompatibility, resistance to corrosion within the oral cavity, and high properties related to osseointegration.
It should be clarified that when we talk about biocompatibility we refer to the fact that the human body easily accepts titanium, rejecting it on a few occasions. On the other hand, when a dental implant adapts to the oral cavity and fulfills its function without inconvenience, we will refer to osseointegration.
More than 95% of dental implants today are manufactured, designed and marketed with titanium as the main element.
Zirconium: a new non-metallic material for dental implants
Scientific progress in recent years has unveiled a new material to be used in dental implantology, zirconium. This in order to eliminate metals and increase aesthetics oriented to naturalness.
Zirconium is a mineral with a high degree of resistance and biointegration, used not only for the composition of implants but also for the manufacture of dental prostheses.
It stands out for its high durability, biointegration with oral tissues, resistance to corrosion in humidity and impediment to the formation of bacterial plaque on the implant.
More studies are still needed to verify the validity and safety of zirconium implants compared to titanium dental implants, therefore, titanium continues to be the main alternative for dental professionals.
Dental implant surgery is a procedure with a success rate of more than 95%. It is performed under local anesthesia and, unlike what it may seem, it is a comfortable and painless procedure.
Scientifically it has been shown that titanium not only binds to bone physically but also chemically, creating a solid structure on which the new dental prosthesis similar to the natural tooth will then be placed.
At Doctor Juan we are creators of high quality smiles, for this reason we only work with quality materials. Titanium implants prevent breakage problems, bone infections that can affect oral health, an immune reaction against the material used, which makes it impossible to properly heal and connect the implant or screw with the bone.
In addition, we work with recognized brands that comply with strict international health standards, which guarantees the safety and effectiveness of our implants, guaranteeing the success of the treatment and its long-term results.
How much do dental implants cost in Medellín?
The price of dental implants varies according to the patient’s oral health status and the number of implants required. The cost of a dental implant ranges from $800 to $2.520 USD.
The great advantage that dental implants offer is their durability of between 15 to 25 years, although if the necessary care is not taken, they will have a short useful life. To keep the implants in perfect condition, it is essential to maintain proper dental hygiene and attend regular medical check-ups.

When we brush our teeth in front of the mirror, sometimes we suddenly become aware of things that we had not noticed before. For example, how is it that the gums can become inflamed around a single tooth? Can you do something about it? There are several reasons why an area of the gum can become inflamed, such as a tooth abscess, gum disease, or improper brushing or flossing technique. Here are some of the causes of this common problem and what to do if it happens to you.
1. Accidents during cleaning
If inflammation occurs around a single tooth, it may be caused by improper brushing or flossing technique, as this can leave food debris on the teeth, which can lead to cavities and inflammation in the teeth. the neglected area. Over time, this improper oral hygiene practice can also lead to gum disease. Check your mouth for areas where the gums look pale, red, or swollen, and watch for any signs of bleeding during brushing, pus coming from a tooth, a loose tooth, or constant bad breath and bad taste in your mouth.
2. Gum disease
One of the most common reasons for inflammation around a single tooth is gum disease, a common condition against which it is important to be on guard every time you brush your teeth. Almost half of the adults over the age of 30 in the U.S. suffers from any of the stages of gum disease, reports the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In its initial stage, the symptoms of this disease can appear as red and swollen gums that, although they do not hurt, can bleed. Because the gums retract in certain places, loose teeth may begin to develop as the disease progresses.
3. Dental abscesses
Tooth abscesses are a very common cause of localized gum inflammation and are a sign of an infection in or around a tooth. Often times, this infection can be the result of untreated tooth decay, causing bacteria to spread into the tooth and infect it. Keep in mind that abscesses can cause irritation and ultimately, if left untreated, even cost you your entire tooth. Some of the characteristic symptoms include throbbing pain, swollen gums, swollen jaw or face, a sore or sensitive tooth, fever, and even a salty taste in the mouth. Because dental abscesses require treatment, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics for the infection or recommend a root canal to remove the infected pulp or even complete tooth extraction, depending on the severity of the abscess.
How to prevent gum inflammation
Brushing your teeth twice a day is not enough – flossing between your teeth and an American Dental Association (ADA) approved mouthwash are just as important. Also, be sure to brush your teeth and floss and rinse with the proper tools and techniques. If you have a large gap between two teeth, for example, an interdental brush will help clean the gap. Also, don’t forget to go to your dental check-ups twice a year so your dentist can check the general health of your teeth and see if your gums have receding or show signs of inflammation.
Having a healthy mouth and a bright smile depends on taking care of both your teeth and your gums. Start with oral care at home and continue with visits to your dentist every half year to make sure your mouth remains healthy from ear to ear.
The dental grinding treatment must be observed and evaluated by the dentist, not only must the size of the natural teeth be taken into account, but also the state of the root, the level of bone that the patient has and the quality of the tooth.
After observing all these points and that they are all in good condition, the dentist will talk with the patient about how the process to follow will be and what it consists of.
Dental grinding is done in order to improve dental aesthetics and the durability of natural teeth if they are already worn but have stable bone and root and for dental replacement with bridges and metal crowns.
The carving will be carried out in one session and before it a mold of the patient’s original teeth must be taken in order to then be able to place some provisional teeth that will then be left in place until the definitive ones are available.
The carving, as the name indicates, consists of carving the patient’s teeth and leaving small rounded stumps where the metal teeth with porcelain coating will then be placed and glued, although there is also the possibility of making the Zirconium covers a more resistant material, better aesthetics and more natural.
Carving is a treatment that is applied in patients who do not want to replace pieces with implants, in this case each case will be observed and the dentist must comment on the treatment to follow. Placing bridges or crowns.
In patients who, due to the dental wear caused by a very strong bite or bruxism, have gradually worn down the teeth, leaving them very small and with exposed dentin and for this reason suffer from sensitivity, in these cases it is chosen to place metal caps on all teeth to cover natural teeth and improve the aesthetics and bite of the patient.
