When it comes to dental health, Lima, Peru, is not just famous for its breathtaking scenery; it’s also renowned for its cutting-edge dental implant technology. Utilizing 3D tomography scans for diagnosis and 3D CAD CAM for implant restoration, we offer a comprehensive approach to dental implants. This ensures precision, quality, and excellence.
A 3D tomography scan is indespensable when considering dental implants
Step 1: Precise Diagnosis with 3D Tomography Scans
Before embarking on the journey to a restored smile, a thorough diagnosis is paramount. While traditional X-rays offer a basic two-dimensional view, our dental professionals employ 3D tomography scan. Also known as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT).
These scans provide a three-dimensional image of the patient’s oral structures, including the jawbone, teeth, nerves, and surrounding tissues.
A dental implant is comprised of two stages. First the implant is placed. Later, the abutment and crown are connected to complete treatment.
This advanced dental implant technology enables our specialist surgeons to see the oral landscape in unprecedented detail. With this precise information, we can accurately plan the placement of dental implants virtually, in 3D, before beginning surgery.
Our 3D scan also minimizes the risk of complications. Most importantly, it allows for optimal implant positioning, and ensures the patient’s safety throughout the procedure.
Step 2: Implant Placement – The Three Easy Steps
- Implant Site Preparation: Once the diagnosis is complete and the implant placement plan is established, our specialist implantologist will start by numbing the area to ensure the patient’s comfort. Then, a small incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone. Using precision tools, the dentist creates a tiny hole in the bone to accommodate the implant.
- Implant Placement: The dental implant, typically made of biocompatible titanium, is carefully inserted into the prepared site. This implant acts as a replacement for the tooth’s natural root. After placement, the implant integrates with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, which can take around three months.
- Restoration: Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, the final step involves attaching an abutment and a custom-made crown. The abutment connects the implant to the crown.

Step 3: 3D CAD CAM for Implant Restoration
- To ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance, our dental experts employ 3D CAD CAM technology. This technology facilitates the design and fabrication of custom implant restorations with unparalleled precision.
- It starts with a digital scan of the patient’s oral structures, leading to the creation of a virtual 3D model of the restoration. Our specialists refine this model to ensure a flawless fit and alignment with the patient’s existing teeth.
- The final restoration is then manufactured using computer-controlled milling or 3D printing, ensuring both functionality and aesthetics.
- The crown is designed to match the patient’s natural teeth in color, shape, and size. Finally, the result is a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing replacement tooth, or bridge, like in this case.
