Implantology

– WHAT IS IT?

Implantology is the branch of dentistry responsible for replacing teeth with dental implants through surgery.

Today, as a result of technological developments in diagnostic tests, such as 3D radiology techniques, it is increasingly possible to create implants that are “tailor-made” for the patient, offering more predictable, personalized and comfortable solutions for the patient.

These treatments have thus become more accurate, also thanks to facial scanners and digital molds, which allow for the creation of very precise surgical guides.

– ADVANTAGES

In the event of tooth loss, implants are a good solution, as far as they allow:

Restoring masticatory function

Maintaining bone structure and facial aesthetics

Preserving the good condition of the other teeth, without wearing them down, as happens when bridges are fitted

─ Offer greater stability to prosthetic structures

─ Restoring the patient’s self-esteem and self-confidence

Improving phonetics

Frequently Asked Questions

The placement of a single dental implant can take only around 15 minutes, while the application of a bi-maxillary dental implant can take 2 to 3 hours.

The success rate for the osseointegration of dental implants is around 98%.

Placing the implant is not painful, as it is usually done under local anesthesia (it can also be done under conscious venous sedation or general anesthesia).

In the post-operative phase, you may feel discomfort, which can be alleviated by taking medication prescribed by the doctor. The day after the procedure, you can go to work.

Studies and trials have shown that a dental implant can generally last between 5 and 10 years. Naturally, for this to happen, it is important that the patient has good oral hygiene habits and makes regular maintenance appointments (more or less every 6 months).

In these cases, a gum and/or bone graft is recommended.

The average healing time for dental implants is between 8 and 12 weeks, depending on the case.

Dental implants should only be placed when teeth are missing and not to replace natural teeth.

Nowadays, dentistry takes a conservative stance, which means that it is committed to preserving the oral health of natural teeth, promoting a series of treatments aimed at protecting the natural tooth and the periodontal tissues that surround it.

The implant is inserted directly into the bone of the jaw and/or mandible which, after healing, will fix the dental implant.
