The benefits of dental implantology are:
Intervention with dental implantology in case of tooth loss is not a purely aesthetic fact: in fact it should be reiterated that edentulousness also hinders the digestive process, as the absence of one or more teeth risks the correct grinding of food. In addition, in the long run, the absence of some teeth promotes resorption of the jaw and mandibular bones and adversely affects pronunciation skills. These are, therefore, the main consequences in our edentulism physique, which, as mentioned, can be corrected with dental implantology.

How are dental implants made?
The dental implant is represented by a screw (fixture) in titanium, a metal widely used in surgery due to the fact that it is highly biocompatible and tolerable by the human body.
The fixation surface is worked in such a way as to harden by increasing and accelerating osseointegration (total implant involvement in the bone structure).
Titanium implants vary in shape, diameter and length, it will be the dentist’s task to tailor the appropriate implant based on radiographic (3D) investigations and the needs of the clinical case.

A dental implant consists of three main elements:
  • IMPLANT (fixture / screw)in titanium with a structure similar to an image inserted into bone;
  • ABUTMENT The structure of the connection between the prosthesis and the implant (fixture) which may be in life: Titanium connection The most popular material for its zircon tire, very aesthetic for “white” metals.
  • PROTHESIS The artificial crown that replaces the natural one, represents the outermost and aesthetic part of the tooth.

We are equal in front of the dentist, but the dentists between them are different.

Placement of an implant

Dental implants are generally inserted into the bone bases surgically under local anesthesia, with a very high success rate.
Contrary to many people’s beliefs, dental implant surgery is neither painful nor expensive.
If necessary, it is possible to insert one or more implants, replace a single tooth, several teeth (partial denture) or all of the arch teeth (complete denture).
The implant fixation, once inserted and osseointegrated at the bone base, will have the function of an artificial root, being able to support a single capsule or a bridge, or it can act as an anchor for the dental elements of an arch whole.

Ultimately, implantology serves to restore the aesthetics, phonetics, and chewing function to the patient, avoiding a situation of malocclusion and disorders in the temporo-mandibular joint (ATM).
Generally, the therapeutic process involves a healing period of 3/6 months in which osteointegration of the implant is done into the bone before proceeding with crown / bridge or total prosthesis fitting.

Why is implantology preferred to other solutions?

Modern surgical implantology surgical protocols allow to minimize surgical trauma.

In some selected patients it is possible to use the instant load implant technique, which enables the rehabilitation of one or more teeth in just 24 hours.

For each specific case, a different type of dental implant can be adopted: depending on the problem, the dentist can choose a different number of implants and different materials, always taking into account that they are all completely biocompatible, thus limiting the risk. of rejection.

Dental implantology makes it possible to restore the patient’s accurate chewing without the help of partial or total removable prosthetic structures: by avoiding permanent removal of dentures, the risk of inflammation can be greatly increased and the problem of bone resorption typical of dentures can be eliminated. .

The final solution: in most cases, they last for a lifetime after surgery (success rate is 99%)

If a missing tooth is not replaced within a short time, adjacent teeth tend to move towards the created cavity: untreated edentulism, therefore, tends to compromise the entire dental arch. Dental implants definitely prevent any harmful movement of neighboring teeth.
