Dental Implant Works

Procedure Details

The procedure will begin with the administration a local anesthetic. The dentist will begin by preparing the socket of the dental implant, which may involve removing the natural tooth and clearing debris from the bone socket. The socket is then drilled with a bone drill to further prepare for the implant.

Once the socket is prepared the dental implant is placed. The implant is tested with a torque wrench to ensure it can withstand force. Next, and abutment is attached to the implant and an x-ray is done to confirm successful implantation. The procedure is finalized with a temporary crown so the patient does not appear toothless while the permanent crown is being made.

After the Procedure

After your dental implant procedure you are released from care immediately. However, you can expect a certain amount of discomfort in the days immediately following the procedure. Side effects after dental implant placement may include swelling of the gums and face, pain at implant site, bruising of skin and gums and minor bleeding.

Self care after dental implants:

• Eat only soft foods for 5 to 7 days

• Take antibiotic to prevent infection

• No physical activity for 3 days

• No alcohol, nicotine or tea for 3 days

• Clean teeth thoroughly and carefully

• Use dental floss

• Avoid hot liquids and food for a few days

• Use ice for swelling and pain

• Do not push tongue on dental implant for 2 to 4 weeks


In general the placement of dental implants is quite successful. Occasionally, the dental implant fails to fuse with the patient’s bone. When this happens the dental implant must be removed and the procedure can be repeated in a month or two. Patients can increase the success of a dental implant taking by practicing good oral hygiene, keeping all dental appointments and avoiding chewing hard candy, ice and other hard foods that may crack the dental crown.

Panama City is popularly known among tourists as the gateway to the country’s natural attractions, however the capital city is definitely worth seeing. In terms of energy, diversity, and cosmopolitanism, Panama city is described as being on par with the likes of Hong Kong and Singapore. But, if you are more interested in taking a trip through time, check out Panama Viejo, which is the oldest European settlement on the Pacific coast of the Americas. The area’s original plan and many of its buildings (built in a mixture of American, French, and Spanish styles) have been preserved.

Panama is a popular destination for ecotourism. One popular site is Darien National Park, which contains many varieties of habitats such as rocky coasts, mangroves, swamps, tropical forests, and sandy beaches. Isla Taboga is located 12 miles (20 km) off the coast and is known as the “Island of Flowers.” For bird watching and hot springs, check out the Anton Valley (2 hours west of Panama City), and for climbing and botanical and wildlife observation, Baru Volcano (the highest elevation in the country), located near the Costa Rican border, is a must see. La Amistad International Park and Iguana Island National Park are both good places for camping. If you don’t want to stray too far from the capital city, Parque Nacional Metropolitano is the only virginal tropical rainforest within the city limits.


It doesn’t matter whether you have extravagant or frugal taste, you will find what you are looking for in Panama. On the high end of the spectrum, the MultiPlaza located near the business district is home to designer boutiques and high end name brand stores including Mont Blanc, Polo, Anne Klein, and Perry Ellis. Los Pueblos is mostly an outlet mall and the Albrook Mall is full of discount stores. Note that if you show your passport at Los Pueblos many stores will waive the sales tax. On the even lower end of the shopping spectrum, Avenida Central is a 6 block long pedestrian mall that is generally frequented by Panama’s poorest (and tourists). Here you can find anything from produce and easteries to electronics and fabric stores.

Nightlife and the Arts

It seems like everywhere you go in Panama, Panamanians are partying. The Gallery plays reggaeton on some nights and also hosts popular DJ’s who spin trance and house music. For a more local crowd, check out Moods, which plays electronic and reggaeton. Club Kraze has a balcony and two rooms, and ladies always get in for free at Creme, which has a more relaxed atmosphere and is a good place to grab an early drink before braving it on the streets of Amador or Uruguay.

Panama has an impressive and varied selection of musuems. One of Panama’s most popular tourist attractions is the Museo del Canal Interoceánico de Panama, which was built in 1997. The museum is housed in a 19th century building that is considered a landmark in and of itself. On display are authentic Panama Canal Treaties and historical and cultural exhibits. Other museums include the Museo Antropológico Reina Torres de Araúz (anthropology), the Museo de la Biodiversidad, the Museo de Ciencias Naturales (Museum of Natural Science), and the Museo Afroantillano, which pays tribute to the West Indians who made up 85% of all foreigners who built the Panama Canal.

Panama is home to some amazing artistic expressions. The Canal Administration Building, which was built in 1914, contains the offices of the Panama Canal Authority, and inside of its lobby there are lovely murals on display that provide a narration of the struggle to build the canal. The murals were painted by William B. Van Ingen who also painted murals at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. Panama is also home to the Contemporary Art Museum and the Religious Art Museum, but if you would rather buy art instead of look at it, the Karavan Gallery has an impressive selection of Panamanian folk art including wooden sculptors and jewelry.

The bookworm and the researcher will enjoy the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Balboa, which has 44,000 volumes of books and the The National Library of Panama, which has over 200,000 volumes. Other libraries include the Biblioteca Publica Morales and the Simon Bolivar Library at the University of Panama. The National Archives also has extensive collections of books as well as maps, court records, and historical documents.


Back to implants and its types:

Removable dentures with two dental implants

Two dental implants are the minimal number of implants that can be used for retain full upper or lower dentures. These two implants are usually placed around the eye teeth position.

Removable dentures with three or more dental implants

Using three or four dental implants to retain full dentures allows for even higher degree of retention and stability.

More importantly it eliminates the unfavorable fulcrum forces on the bone. These forces are associated with using two dental implants to retain full dentures.

More importantly, using more than two implants on the upper arch allows us to eliminate the denture coverage of the roof of the mouth. This allows for the tactile feel of food against the roof of the mouth which translates to a much more enjoyable eating experience

Locator retained dentures by dental implants

Denture locator attachments are a another type of male /female connection where a protruding triangle-like attachment is placed on the implant “male part” and skirt –like attachment is placed on the under surface of dentures “female part”.

The advantage of locator retained dentures over ball retained dentures is that locator retained dentures provide more stability, tighter fit, and less wear of the attachment components.

Partial Implant Bridge

Partial mouth dental implant options

This is when the patient is only missing few teeth. Two restorative options are usually considered when few teeth are missing:

Due to the non traumatical extraction and very smooth placing of the implant, you might notice that the gums and papillae are very well maintained, and that a perfect esthetic solution was realized.
