The aim is to preserve the tooth as long as possible
The dental implant is inserted into the jawbone then an abutment is mounted on the implant to install an artificial crown, a full or partial denture or a bridge.
Titanium implants are undoubtedly a fascinating innovation and represent a valid therapeutical solution both for the dentist and the patient.
Teeth can be seen as symbols of beauty and youth and guarantee human health through proper chewing and phonation. In the past, partial and total edentulism was believed to be the inevitable effect of ageing, this belief represented a major challenge for dentistry.
Recently, great advances have been made in oral implantology making dental implants a predictable treatment with good long-term prognosis (96-98% of success).
The dental research has now reached a successful level of safety, reliability and predictability, making this treatment a great solution to replace dental elements in patients of all ages.
Dentists can meet cases in which the patient presents one or more damaged or missing tooth. The solution is the extraction and replacement of teeth with dental implants directly attached to the bone. To implants can be fixed one or more dental crowns of various prices and materials, or use them to insert the removable dental prosthesis (overdenture) or, as a basis for a permanent prosthesis (Toronto bridge – all-on-4).
In recent years, immediate loading dental implants are prefered over the traditional delayed implantology. Immediate loading is chosen when the patient’s bone does not require more time to complete the osseointegration, thus the patient does not have to wear a removable denture.
Immediate transmucosal implants allow the dentist to make less invasive interventions and quick recovery of mucosal tissues.
Prophylaxis Cleaning with calcium phosphates
We recommend regular applications of calcium phosphates-based products to maintain the correct enamel mineralisation and prevent caries, white spots, sensitive gums etc., especially during childhood.
Fill up tooth grooves with sealants
The OMS and the Department of Health recommend sealants to fill up the grooves in permanent molars and premolars to guarantee a better cleaning of children’s teeth occlusal surface and prevent the risk of bacterial infiltration and decay.
This procedure is painless and safe but must be carried out according to the correct timing of intervention.
The dentist will guide you in choosing the right moment to carry out this important form of prevention.
We recommend at least six-monthly visits and professional hygiene sessions.
