Immediate loading in one day in Thecaretrip Oporto Portugal

Immediate loading

One of the main problems with dental implants is the waiting time between the placement of the implant and the placement of the final dental prosthesis (crown, bridge, complete prosthesis), which is generally a minimum of 4 months. During this period, the patient very often uses a removable temporary prosthesis. At Thecaretrip, we have a very developed methodology of teeth in 1 day (immediate loading) and immediate fixed provisionals which will avoid this long wait of 4 months to be able to display a beautiful smile.
dental bone graft

Bone regeneration

There are many types of regeneration such as maxillary sinus lift (when there is no bone in the upper posterior sector), guided bone regeneration - when a biomaterial and a membrane covering them are used, en bloc grafts and special advanced techniques.
Regenerative surgeries usually take no more than an hour and recovery is usually quick (2-3 days). It is performed under local anesthesia and is sometimes supplemented by intravenous sedation.
At Thecaretrip, we are committed to the safety of our patients. That's why we only work with high-quality biomaterials, backed by the highest scientific standards.

Maxillary sinus lift

Maxillary sinus lift is one of the most widely used, safe and studied techniques for bone regeneration. This technique is used when the patient does not have sufficient bone volume and height in the posterior area of the maxillary bone (upper molar area). It consists of the placement of bone biomaterial to gain the lost volume and height, thus allowing the placement of dental implants.
Maxillary sinus lift is a convenient and comfortable surgery that usually takes no more than an hour. The postoperative period is smooth and the recovery is usually 2-3 days.
zygomatic implants

Zygomatic implants

Zygomatic implants are the missing answer for patients who, having insufficient bone, could not benefit from traditional methods of implantology - or involved bone grafts, with painful recovery.
Zygomatic implant surgery is currently the most advanced technique for the prosthetic rehabilitation of the atrophied jaw: adapted to the patient's anatomy, it is minimally invasive and does not require osteotomies or cutting of the jawbone, and is also distinguished by the preservation of soft tissues.
Fixed teeth in one day and without grafts.
At Thecaretrip, we specialize in the rehabilitation of severe jaw atrophy using fixed dental prostheses (zygomatic implants), anchored in the malar bone. Thus, we avoid resorting to surgery to perform bone grafts.

Crowns on implants

At Thecaretrip, the process of manufacturing crowns on implants is carried out using state-of-the-art technologies for better adaptation, resistance and aesthetics of your teeth.
For the final crowns, we use Zikonzahn Zirconia, because it is the material that best imitates the dental structure and is an excellent solution to restore harmony to your smile.

The stages of placing dental implants

01. Pre-surgical planning
Preliminary study to determine the number of implants you need and whether you have enough bone for implant placement.
02. Surgery and placement of immediate fixed teeth
On the day of surgery, dental implants are placed under local anesthesia and, when indicated, temporary teeth are placed immediately after surgery.
03. Permanent fixed teeth
After the bone healing period (4 to 6 months), the molds will be made to make the permanent teeth, which will then be placed.
04. Continuous Monitoring
At Thecaretrip, we offer patients a comprehensive service that continues after implant placement to ensure success.

Frequently asked questions about dental implants

01. Why is it advisable to replace a missing tooth?
The absence of teeth has the following consequences: Bone loss (unstimulated bone tends to shrink); Displacements and possible complications in other healthy teeth; Decreased masticatory function; Digestion problems; Cosmetic damage and change in facial expression; Speech difficulties. Dental implants can alleviate these complications, providing a solution that is not only aesthetic but also functional.
02. When are dental implants recommended?
Dental implant treatment can replace a missing tooth, replace several teeth or replace all the teeth in a jawbone. In this case, the implants make it possible to fix a crown, a bridge or a prosthesis.
03. What material is used?
Titanium has established itself as a reference material thanks to its high resistance and its excellent tolerance by the body (biocompatibility). It is very important to know that there are different types of materials and ranges of implants. At Thecaretrip, we use the highest quality range, in addition to the experience of our surgeon. For such a delicate treatment, the combination of experience and high quality is essential to obtain perfect and lasting results.
04. Up to what age can they be placed?
There is no upper age limit. Any elderly person can be a candidate for implant placement, as long as they do not present any risk factors. On the contrary, implants cannot be placed in patients who are too young (less than about 18 years old). It is absolutely imperative that the development of the mandible be completed.
05. How long does the treatment last?
From the preliminary examination to the fitting of the prosthesis, the duration of treatment with implants can vary between 4 and 6 months. The extent of the treatment (number of implants, increase in bone mass, etc.) will determine its duration.

    We answer your questions | FAQs

    Dental treatment in Portugal is cheaper because general operating costs, which include materials, laboratory costs and dentist fees, are lower in Portugal than in the UK. The same materials are sold by the brands themselves at lower prices in Portugal. Dentists do not charge as high fees as in other countries, so even our best dentists have a lower cost than dentists in other countries. We pay our dentists’ fees based on local prices (and based on their experience and quality), resulting in significant savings for our patients. Patients also often have to deal with very high laboratory costs. With Thecaretrip, a large part of the laboratory procedures are carried out in the dental clinic itself, which translates into lower prices for the patient, but with high quality, since the management of the process is carried out in-house, according to our high quality standards and by professionals we have selected. Some procedures must be carried out in rigorously selected external laboratories. Lower cost is often associated with lower quality. Wrongly. The dentists who work with us have been selected for their high level of specialization, the rigor and perfectionism with which they carry out their work and the attention paid to the patient. All the materials we use are certified and we only work with the best brands on the market.

    Our implants are made by Straumann, one of the most prestigious implant brands in the world. Our implants come with a lifetime guarantee that can be used in all the clinics around the world working with this brand.

    The first thing to do is speak to the Thecaretrip team and explain your emergency so that we can guide you. Most emergencies can be solved in your country by consulting a specialist in the field of implantology. You can also plan a visit to Portugal to solve the problem.

    Dental implants are placed under local anesthesia, which minimizes the risks associated with a surgical procedure which is in itself painless. After surgery, there may be some swelling and discomfort, which will be resolved with prescribed medication. Ideally, after the procedure, the patient should rest for at least a day. This delay is important because rest slows circulation, which reduces the risk of pain. The next day, the patient can resume his professional activities in moderation. Compliance with post-operative care is essential for a good recovery, among which we highlight the following points:

    • Cold and soft foods: yoghurt, ice cream, gelatin, cold soups, pureed vegetables, meat and fish, fruit smoothies;
    • No physical exercise;
    • Avoid exposure to the sun;
    • Sleep with the head slightly elevated;
    • Regular cleaning of the operated area;
    • Take prescribed medications as directed.
