Dental implant

The dental implant has revolutionized dental medicine in the last 25 years, coming up with practical solutions where answers had not yet been found. An idental implant is actually an artificial root, which replaces the missing tooth, and serves as a support for the dental crown. Usually, it is inserted during a first surgical session, after which a variable period of several weeks or even months follows, during which it integrates into the jaw bone. When its connections with the jaw bone are strong enough, the implant receives an abutment and a dental crown, which completely reconstruct the missing tooth.

Recently, however, procedures have been implemented through which the implant can receive the dental crown in the same session in which it is inserted, and this procedure is called "immediate loading". Interesting, right? You can leave the clinic with the implant and the fixed tooth after an intervention of a maximum of 60 minutes.

How can a dental implant be used?

Therefore, implants can replace a single missing tooth, or they can serve as support pillars for complex reconstructions, even of the entire tooth.


Fears about dental implants

If your fears are financial, we can overcome them together. You will have a rigorous treatment plan drawn up, so that you will know all the costs before the intervention. If you feel the need to stagger the payments, we can discuss this too, you just have to let us know.

dental implant fears

If you are afraid that the implant will be "rejected" by the body, we want you to know that no intervention is performed without a set of preliminary tests, so we will know exactly what your general health is. Lack of implantation in the bone is usually caused by a general condition, such as decompensated diabetes, cancer, untreated periodontitis, radiation therapy, etc., or vicious habits such as smoking, alcoholism. We will make sure that your body is ready to receive the dental implant.

How do you know if you are a candidate for a dental implant?

If you are missing one or more teeth from the arches, you can consider the dental implant option. But if it can be inserted and under what conditions, only the dentist can tell you, after carefully analyzing your computer tomograph. Please note that the insertion of an implant requires 3D imaging analysis (computer tomography), which accurately measures the bone size in the jaw area that will receive the implant. Just a panoramic x-ray is not enough to draw up a treatment plan.

how do you know you are eligible for a dental implant

It is good to know that after the loss of a tooth, the area of ​​bone that supported it recedes / resorbs over time, so that after a certain period the remaining bone may not be able to provide enough support for the future implant. In such cases, you can resort to procedures such as bone augmentation, sinus lifting, bone-splitting, etc., or even give up implant insertion. So, don't wait for years to decide, because the bone is shrinking and the procedure can be complicated or even impossible.

What investigations do you need to insert a dental implant?

If you are considering the insertion of a dental implant, we are waiting for you at our clinic for a consultation with the implantologist. He will recommend the following preliminary investigations to the intervention:

  1. CT in the implant insertion area
  2. Blood Tests
  3. ECG

If you suffer from other general conditions or follow a certain medication regimen, it is possible for the implantologist to work interdisciplinary with your general practitioner and agree on how to approach it.
