What is the Procedure for Dental Implants? How Long Will I Need to Stay in Barcelona?

The dental implant procedure is made up of the implant itself, an abutment and a crown. The implant is inserted into the jaw bone and act as an artificial, stable tooth root. The abutment joins the crown to the implant. The crown is an artificial tooth that fits on top of the abutment, created to match your other teeth in shape and color.

The implant is inserted on your first visit. It will be surgically placed in the jawbone, along with bone graft material if needed, with a temporary tooth on top. Unless an extraction is required, this process usually can be achieved in one day.

Your next trip will take place between three and six months later. This is so the bone and implant fuse together in a process called osseointegration, which provides a stable base for your crown. The abutment and crown are placed on this trip.

Can I Rely on the Quality of Dental Implants in Barcelona?

Dentists in Spain undergo rigorous training and once qualified, must be registered to practice. For specialists like endodontists, further training is required with professional organizations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), providing advanced certifications toward a common certification program.

Certainly, the general standards of dentistry in Spain are exceptionally good. As dentists are in private practice, it is in their interests to provide good quality services as they are in competition with other dentists—and patients will soon go elsewhere if they are not satisfied. Dental clinics want to not only attract patients but also keep them coming back for preventive care, such as regular check-ups and fillings. Thus, you can expect clinics to be modern and equipped with the latest technologies, all of which create a professional environment in which international patients feel comfortable.

Of course, you can’t always judge a book by its cover, which is why we advocate doing the necessary groundwork on any clinic that you might be considering. Booking with Dental Departures means this step is already covered—or at least all of the necessary information is packaged up nicely in one place, where you can find original, verified patient reviews.

All the dental providers on our website have also been pre-screened by us. Dentist qualifications, professional memberships, legal/malpractice records and business licenses are all included in our verification process. You can see details under each of our clinic listings, as well as clinic photos, location maps, prices.
