La tecnología, una allyada fundamental en el cuidado de nuestra salud bucodental

When we talk about health, we need to have the security that we can access to the best specialists and the latest technology, and also that we count on the advantages of human, friendly and professional treatment. Ofrecerlo es la voluntad de Institutos Odontológicos (IO), una red de clínicas propias repartidas por all Catalunya, Madrid, Zaragoza, Valencia y Castellón.

Siempre de la mano de la innovation, las clinicas IO han incorporado nuevos scanneres intraorales. It is a tool with state-of-the-art technology that provides a greater sense of comfort, allowing you to solve procedures in less time, and with absolute precision.

With the intraoral scanner, the dentist can take all the exact measurements with a comfortable rapid scan in the first session

Thanks to the intraoral scanner, the dentist can take all the exact measurements, for example, for the realization of dental prostheses or orthodontic appliances, with a simple rapid scan that takes place already in the first session. The traditional form of working to make a prosthesis implies, in many occasions, that subsequent visits will be required on the part of the patient, derived from factors that range from human error to transport problems.

With the scanner, instead, we managed to save all these intermediate steps and gain a lot in reliability and rigor, completing the arc measurement process in just a few seconds. Then, the data captured by the scanner is transmitted to the computer and, through specific 3D software, the specialists design the final prosthesis at the moment, based on the exact digital representation of our mouth. To this, there is an additional advantage: the scanner obtains an image of the actual state of our teeth, which allows, thanks to the 3D software, to work with the most convenient aligner proposals in each case. In addition, the patient has the opportunity to see a virtual reproduction of how his mouth will look once the treatment is finished, and also know an exact estimate.

El paso de un procesido analógico a otro digital evita procesos de elaboración de la prótesis u orthodoncia que a menudo suelen resultar un tanto incómodos. With the traditional method, para disejar los alineadores es necesario preparar un molde de arcadas con silicone o alginato, un material de secado rápido hecho de algas marinas.

Eso implies the maximum collaboration of the patient, to avoid making movements that can affect the measurements of the mold, which means that the person must pass the wheel with his mouth open and in a rigid position. Ahora, por fin, todo esto es sustituido, gracias al escanner, por una simple exploración rápida.

Recuperando la sonrisa

The other technology recently incorporated in IO clinics are the so-called immediate implants. Con los métodos tradicionales, they had to spend several visits until the patient finally had the definitive implant.

Por el contrario, con la carga immediata digital, 48 horas después de haber tomado las medidas necessarias, ya puede procederse a la collocation del implant y de la prótesis dental provisional, que, además, es funcional desde el primer día. Así, la restaración dental completa, en la que un diente protésico sustituye al diente natural, se hace al momento.

Los implants de carga immediata permiten la collocation de la prótesis dental provisional 48h después de haber tomado medidas

The temporal corona is designed with great care so that it does not come into contact with the antagonistic tooth, which is the opposite side of the mouth, in order to respect the process of integrating the implant into the bone and decrease the maximum possible movements. Transcurridos unos tres meses, cuando el implant ya se ha integrated completamente en el hueso, es el momento de colocar la prótesis definitive.

And trato de proximity

Since they opened their first clinic in 1988, Institutos Odontológicos has had the mission of bringing people closer to the latest medical advances and the assistance of the best professionals, while always maintaining their signs of identity: close treatment and the possibility of consulting with the dentist confidence.

Por eso, solo en Barcelona, ​​cuenta con siete clínicas, repartidas por diversos barrios de la ciudad.
