Implants can have different shapes and sizes, be inserted with various techniques and then anchored to fixed or mobile prostheses to restore the masticatory function.
Oral health is essential for implantology to succeed. This is obtained through scrupulous professional and home oral hygiene, along with continuous monitoring of risk factors like smoking.
Ideal implantology must consider the final aesthetic result that can be achieved. Maintaining or restoring the correct proportion between the tooth and gum tissue is essential to preserve or improve the initial condition.
Precision. Reliability. Speed. Computer-guided implantology allows dentists to place implants according to the pre-planned positions. This results in reduced surgery time, eliminates insertion errors, and improves the post-operative course, as it avoids surgical incisions in the gum.
From a 3D X-ray image (CONE BEAM), dentists can reconstruct the patient’s bone model, replicating the anatomy of the area where the implants will be inserted. This model facilitates a preliminary study to determine the implants’ position and inclination in relation to the amount of bone available in the various areas and the planned position of the permanent prosthesis.
Implantology treatments can involve conscious sedation to ensure a more comfortable experience to the patient.
Contraindications in implantology are rare. However, every patient must be evaluated and instructed on the various alternatives that can help them obtain the desired result, i.e. their health and satisfaction.
No. All implantology operations are conducted using local anaesthesia or conscious sedation. The patient won’t feel any pain. APGR uses innovative techniques to make the operation faster and the recovery more effective. The patient will receive care throughout the entire treatment process and even afterwards.
The lack of all teeth in the same dental arch can be resolved with a fixed full-arch prosthesis (Toronto type) screwed onto 4-6 strategically placed implants (commonly referred to as “all on 4” or “all on 6”) or with an all-ceramic bridge cemented onto 8-10 implants. Both these solutions ensure comfort and chewing functionality and are comparable to natural teeth.
