First Center in the Canary Islands to use dental implants
In 1981 Dr. José Manuel Navarro began his implantology career after attending the University of Tübingen to train on the Tübinger Implant with Dr. Willy Schulte.
First single implant in Spain.
In 1987 we placed and published the first two cases of replacement of single teeth on implants ad modum Brånemark in Spain

In 2005 and using the same implant, the crown was changed using the latest technology (18 years after implant placement). This case was awarded the Creative Circle Award at the World Conference 2005 and presented at the World Conference 2007 at the M.G.M in Las Vegas.

Launch of digital technology Cerec I
In 1995 we began our digital journey by incorporating the first dental CAD / CAM device. The CEREC I milling machine from SIEMENS.

In 1995, the 25th anniversary of the Spanish Society of Stomatological and Esthetic Prosthesis was held in Gran Canaria, a meeting that was chaired by Dr. José Manuel Navarro Alonso.

Pioneers in implants and permanent same-day teeth
In 1998 In 1998 we published the first worldwide protocol that allowed the placement of implants and definitive teeth on the same day. The concept, called Same Day Teeth or Brånemark Novum® was developed by our mentor Prof. Brånemark and Richard Skalak. You can download the chapter of the book where Dr. Navarro describes this technique step by step here.

First Center in the Canary Islands to use zygomatic implants
First center in the Canary Islands to use zygomatic implants. They anchor to the cheekbone in situations of extreme bone resorption.

Pioneers in Invisalign®
Pioneers in Invisalign (invisible orthodontics). In 2003 we treated the first patient with invisible orthodontics.

We currently have the "Diamond" designation thanks to the many cases we deal with annually.
Pioneers in computer-guided surgery
In 2005, we were the first center in the Canary Islands to use computer-guided surgery to place dental implants.

Incorporation of Omnicam, inLab MC XL milling machine, inFire HTC Speed and inEos X5
In 2014, realizing that digital dentistry was here to stay, we incorporated Sirona's CEREC CADCAM system. This equipment allows us to make all types of prostheses (ceramic, acrylic or temporary) frequently in a single visit.

Pioneers in the use of ceramic implants
In 1981, we treated our first ceramic implant cases using the Aluminum Oxide Al2O3 Tübinger Implantat.
Since 2015 we have used the latest generation ceramic implants in Zirconium (much greater resistance than Al2O3), ideal in clinical situations of allergies to titanium and in the anterior esthetic zone.

Case treated in 2018 with two-piece implant and ZERAMEX® implant system - 100% metal-free ceramic implants
Invisalign® and digital impression integration with Omnicam
Incorporation of Intraoral Omnicam Digital Impression for invisaling. Align Technology and Sirona announce new work integration together with CEREC OmniCam, which can be used for the presentation of Invisalign cases that require an intraoral scanner. This allows Invisalign providers to present a digital impression instead of a traditional PVS impression.
Incorporation of 5-axis milling machine
In 2017 we incorporated the MC X5 5-axis milling machine.
