Implantology

Implantology is the most innovative technique for replacing missing teeth and regaining self-confidence with a natural and healthy smile, often even in 24 hours. A dental implant is made up of a completely biocompatible titanium screw, which integrates perfectly with the bone, becoming like a natural root on which a fixed crown or, in the case of multiple defects, a dental bridge can be placed.

Dental implant: what is it?

The dental implant is the best solution when one or more teeth are missing. Top quality materials are used for its construction, such as the titanium roots, which allow the installation of the crown. Before proceeding with the installation, a CT scan is always carried out in our clinic to evaluate the state of the bone in which the implant will be placed.

To make high-quality dental implants, we choose only the best. With us you have the absolute guarantee of systems made with materials from the best brands in the sector. Whatever your needs, our clinic is able to find the best solution for you. With our help, you will finally be able to solve all your problems with your mouth: the team of dentists of our clinic has many years of experience, which allows us to face and solve any dental health problem; not only that, in addition to regaining your smile, with us you can save up to 70% of the amount you would spend in Italy for the construction of an implant.

ALL TYPES OF IMPLANTS

Implant treatment is recommended for patients with a full arch of missing teeth or who are planning to have their remaining teeth removed and replaced. It offers a stable long-term alternative. 

Single plant

Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridges that do not fit well, and can offer an option when the lack of natural tooth roots does not allow for the construction of dentures.

Dental Implant Bridge

A separate implant must be surgically placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth, leading to expensive and often impractical surgery.

All in 4

All-on-4 dental implants are a complete set of implants designed to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth. They act as a more permanent and natural looking alternative to dentures.

All in 6

All-on-6 implants use 6 dental implants to support a bridge that holds a full arch of replacement teeth for either the upper or lower jaw. Uses 4 implants in the front of the jaw and 2 implants, positioned at an angle, in the back for maximum support.

All in 8

The All on 8 dental implant system consists of placing 8 dental implants per dental arch, functioning as "anchors" for a fixed and non-removable dental bridge. This system is recommended in cases where the patient has lost more than 80% of their natural teeth.

Tuberal-pterygoid implants

The pterygoid implant engages three types of bones (maxillary tuberosity of the maxilla, pyramidal process of the palatine bone, pterygoid process of the sphenoid bone) located in the most posterior area of the maxilla. This site is always an option to place a dental implant in patients suffering from bone loss in the maxilla.

In almost all cases of partial or total edentulism, mobile or removable prostheses are no longer accepted by patients. Even due to the serious bone loss that makes it impossible or too risky to insert dental implants in the alveolar bone, today there are a number of valid alternatives that allow not only to rehabilitate an entire arch from conditions that were incurable in the past, but above all to quickly and without more invasive bone grafts or augments.

A dental implant is placed in the back of the jaw in the conventional way when the bone below the maxillary sinus is at least 6mm. For more extensive bone loss it was until now necessary to resort to transplantation techniques or maxillary sinus lift, or both, which were very invasive for the patient. Today, implants supported by bony sites further away from the alveolar bone are used, such as the pterygomaxillary region.

The pterygoid implant is a dental implant that is inserted posteriorly to the upper arch, has an average length of 18 mm, which, starting from the maxillary tuber, intersects the bone plates of the pterygoid fossa. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and takes about 20 minutes on average.

For a long time in dentistry it was believed that the pterygomaxillary district was unsuitable for hosting dental implants due to its anatomical characteristics. In more recent times, however, abundant clinical evidence has shown that this area is not only suitable for the osseointegration of titanium dental implants, but that, contrary to what was previously thought, the bone density of some pterygomaxillary structures offers anchoring stability of implants even higher than that of any other part of the jaw.

Furthermore, if the conditions exist, a fixed temporary prosthesis can be placed within 24 hours following the insertion of the implants (immediate loading), which emerge from the alveolar crest. At the end of the osseointegration period, the provisional prosthesis is replaced by the definitive fixed ceramic prosthesis. In cases of total edentulism, the rehabilitation of the entire upper arch is obviously carried out by combining the tuberal-pterygoid implants with implants of other types, distributed in other areas of the mouth, to provide the fixed prosthesis with more anchor points.

Therefore, pterygoid implants offer great advantages to the patient in the rehabilitation of the upper arches

  • shorter healing times;
  • the intervention is less invasive than a large maxillary sinus lift;
  • in most cases it is not necessary to graft bone;
  • there is a very high percentage of osseointegration higher than the percentage of good outcomes of maxillary sinus lift operations.
