Clínica de Saúde Oral de Loulé, Implants



Over the past few years, this has been the speciality in the Dental Medicinearea that has undergone the greatest technical and scientific advances and it is also one of the most sought treatments due to its increasing reliability.

Implants consist on the replacement of the natural tooth through the insertion of an “artificial root” made of titanium. This root allows supporting a new tooth (crown).
This process has two stages. The first stage has to do with the insertion of the implant itself (which corresponds to the root of the new tooth). During the second stage, after the osteointegration of the Implant (the correct acceptance and integration of the implant by the bone), which lasts between 3 and 6 months, the crown is placed on the mentioned implant.

Implants allow us to replace one tooth or more, as well as all the teeth, and its insertion causes no pain. In most cases, the insertion of implants , takes between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of implants placed per session and on each specific case.


It is the area of Dental Medicine that treats the consequences of cavities in the dental structure and makes the reconstruction of the damaged tooth.

Dental cavities are the most frequent oral pathology. It consists in a destruction of the dental structure caused by the bacteria found in the bacterial plaque. These bacteria produce acids thatdestroy the dental enamel.

The acids are the result of the fermentation of carbohydrate-rich food (sweets, bread, pastas, fruits, etc.).
Bacterial Plaque --> Acids --> Enamel demineralisation--> Dental cavity (Dental caries)
When the cavity only damages the enamel and the dentine, it is treated by eliminating the damaged dental structure and by reconstructing (restoring) the tooth using appropriate products (composite or amalgam).

Nowadays the most usual materials are white composites which perfectly simulate the dental enamel.

Restorations are the most common procedures in a dental practice. By doing them we treat cavities and restore the tooth's lost anatomy.
