WHAT IS AN IMPLANT? A dental implant is an effective alternative to the root of a tooth. It consists of a titanium screw only a few millimetres in size. It can be inserted into the jaw or jaw bone, replacing the missing tooth. The implant is made of titanium, a biocompatible material that avoids any risk of rejection and that integrates with the bone tissue by a process called osseointegration. It takes a few months-typically between 3 and 6-for this process to be completed. The dentist will decide if there is a possibility of inserting the implants by evaluating various factors such as the...

THE ADVANTAGES OF AN IMPLANT Implants allow you to keep smiling, to speak naturally and to eat any food. They represent the solution for cases of missing teeth or even for the reconstruction of an entire dental arch. It is the dentist's job to provide the ideal proposal for each specific case. An implant makes it possible to replace a single missing tooth with a crown, thereby obtaining the same effect as a natural tooth, avoiding the need for inserting a bridge. This allows you to keep the neighbouring teeth intact, which is particularly useful if they are healthy. In cases where all the...

Placing implants involves surgery that can be followed by post-operative disorders such as swelling and pain in the affected area. Although the rate of success is very high (about 95%), there is, however, the risk of failure in the first few months due to a lack of osseointegration or, subsequently, due to incorrect oral hygiene, an excessive masticatory load or other causes. A prosthesis on implants may be more expensive and may require longer manufacturing times than other types of prostheses. IS IMPLANTOLOGY PAINFUL? Absolutely not, as it performed under a local anaesthesia on tissues...

ARE IMPLANTS SUITABLE IN MY CASE? The following are the main requirements for someone considering an implant solution to replace one or more missing teeth: a sufficient amount of bone tissue, being in good health and having healthy gums. It is, however, worth noting that the problem of insufficient bone availability for receiving an implant can be solved: it is possible to operate in many cases by restoring the bone volume to an adequate amount. In any case, it is up to the dentist to assess whether the implants are suitable for you with a dental check-up, x-rays, study models and possibly...

POST-OPERATIVE CARE PAIN: similar to that following a tooth extraction, usually kept under control by analgesics or antiinflammatory drugs. Avoid those with acetylsalicylic acid (such as Aspirin) as they may interfere with blood clotting. SWELLING: frequently apply ice packs on the cheek of the affected area for the first few hours after surgery. Sleep with your head raised on one or two extra pillows for the next few nights. ANTIBIOTICS:    preventive treatment may be recommended to prevent infection. PHYSICAL EFFORT: avoid any strong physical activity or sports in the week following...

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF IMPLANTS WITH A MOBILE PROSTHESIS? Proper oral hygiene associated with regular checkups is essential for the duration of the implants that support a mobile prosthesis. In addition to the normal cleaning of the mobile prosthesis (without using hot water), carefully brush the attachments connected to the implants after each meal and clean them with a cotton swab moistened with mouthwash, especially along the gingival border. HOW MUCH DOES IMPLANT SURGERY COST? It is advisable to request an estimate from your dentist. The cost depends on the complexity of the case...
