Why choose rehabilitation on implants?









Today Implantology is the best way to replace missing dental elements in most adults of all ages. It’s advantage is avoiding inconveniences due to the use of mobile prosthesis (dentures and removable prosthesis), protecting the health of natural healthy teeth (shaped and reduced in cases of bridges) and guaranteeing a complete stability.[/text_output][text_output]


[/text_output][accordion id=”” class=”” style=””][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Check-up for implants” id=”” class=”” style=””]Implant check-up is an important moment to establish an alliance in the doctor-patient relationship, evaluate expectations and the real general and oral health conditions of the patient.

How is it done?

We perform an evaluation of dental occlusion through a gnathologycal analysis, we evaluate the presence of cavities, gengivitis or periodontal diseases, which will necessarily have to be treated before the implant intervention. We also have to consider risk factors such as diabetes or smoke.

The operation planning will have to be done after having evaluated the implant location through an X-ray support, such as endoral X-rays, dental X-rays and CAT which enables a three-dimensional overview of bone volumes. It is therefore essential to evaluate the quantity of residual bone and the relationship with other important anatomical structures, such as the base of the maxillary sinus, nasal cavities and the inferior alveolar nerve.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”How does the intervention take place?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Facing an implant intervention means undergoing a surgical intervention during which missing teeth are replaced with titanium roots inserted in the bone. Implants can support single teeth, groups of teeth or the Toronto prosthesis.

In our dental office, implant operations are performed in operating rooms which are completely dedicated to this activity.

Phases of the intervention

The first phase is represented by a detailed analysis of the patient needs and his/her general bone and gum conditions through traditional and volumetric X-rays (CAT-DENTALSCAN and CONE BEAM).

Once the overview has been defined, it will be possible to choose the best strategy to solve the problem and start the next operating phase.

The second phase is a surgical one. Titanium implants are inserted and gum tissues are sutured, in order to completely cover implants.To make the patient feel at ease during the operation, it is possible to use conscious sedation and hypnosis

The third phase, still a surgical one, occurs after a recovery period from to 2 to 6 months, to enable implant osseointegration. In this case we proceed with the insertion of cover and healing screws which will then be replaced by pivots which, as they stick out of the gum, act as fragments on which we will screw or cement the crowns.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Can all dental offices do implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]All dental offices can do implants, but few dentists achieve an excellent result.
The Vignato Dental Clinic has a ten-year experience in implantology and is equipped with two operating rooms dedicated to this activity.
Our success is guaranteed by the use of scientifically reliable materials, the presence of a prepared team and the use of operating rooms, thus enabling us to operate in complete sterility.
Nowadays implantology represents a small miracle because new materials perfectly integrate with the patient´s tissues, stimulate the bone growth and enable a functional and aesthetic rehabilitation as on natural teeth.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”How can we replace a missing tooth without damaging healthy neighboring teeth?” id=”” class=”” style=””]By performing an implant which will prevent its opposing tooth from coming out and its neighboring teeth from migrating, thus altering the chewing.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Why choose an implant instead of a bridge?” id=”” class=”” style=””]The choice should be made after consulting the dentist who will evaluate the particular situation of each patient.
In general terms, if teeth close to the one to be replaced have not experienced interventions and are intact, we advice to insert an implant, so that they are not being damaged.
If neighboring teeth have undergone relevant interventions, we advice to proceed with a bridge, so that damaged crowns can be protected.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Can anyone get implants? Is there a minimum age limit?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Anyone with a completed bone growth and in good health can get implants.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Can diabetics get implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Diabetes mellitus is an important risk factor only if the patient is constantly unbalanced.
Those under therapy can easily face the positioning intervention of implants. It is advisable to perform the treatment in the morning, right after breakfast and with the glycemia under control.
It is essential that, after the intervention, health conditions remain good.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”How long does it take to insert an implant?” id=”” class=”” style=””]It is a a simple intervention which usually takes an hour.
Being a little traumatic type of intervention, recovery is fast and has no consequences. It is therefore important to follow some pre- and post-surgical rules.
Stitches are removed during the regular check-up after 7 days.
Implants inserted by the transmucosal way, technique applied only in certain limited situations, do not need stitches because the gum is not surgically cut, but pierced together with the bone, allowing an even faster recovery.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”What is the average life span of implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]There is no limit! It all depends on the precision and cleaning of the product, periodic check-ups, domestic oral hygiene and the dental hygienist who is treating you.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Can implants be rejected?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Materials used in the production of implants are highly environmentally friendly and allow to avoid cases of rejection.
However, it can happen that implants do not integrate in the bone, thus simulating a rejection. Reasons depend on the insertion phase of the implant, the sterility degree of the environment in which we operate and the quality of the dental prosthesis used.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Is it possible to insert an implant right after a tooth has been extracted” id=”” class=”” style=””]Yes, it is. This technique is defined post-extractive. In such cases, we use implants with specific spirals able to attach to the wall with the space left by the extraction.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Are crowns screwed or cemented to implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]In the Vignato Dental Clinic, crowns and bridges are always screwed to implants.
The reason is simple: they are easy to remove and clean.
In some cases, however, anterior teeth must be cemented to implants.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Can I insert implants if I have little bone?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Yes, you can. In the upper maxillary tooth we use a technique called sinus increase.
In the mandibular crest we can perform bone grafts or split crests consisting in a specific guided bone fracture.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”Can smoke influence the duration of implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Yes, smoke can significantly increase the chances of early loss of implants. It is therefore advisable to reduce smoke and take good care of your oral hygiene.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”What are immediate load implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Immediate loading implantology is a widely spread technique which enables to reach an immediate functional and aesthetic rehabilitation by inserting a temporary prosthesis right after inserting the implant.
In general, in order to carry out immediate load implantology, it is necessary that preliminary X-rays allow it, even if it is confirmed only on the occasion of the surgery.
Immediate loading depends on various factors such as: bone quantity and quality, quantity of soft tissues and the implant position which should immediately show a good primary stability.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”What is guided implant surgery?” id=”” class=”” style=””]Guided surgery is a method to plan surgery with the use of a software. It allows to insert endosseous implants in dental arches in a little invasive and fast way and in just one session.
The program uses accurate surgical guides and enables us to insert implants exactly in the desired position, without cutting the gum to see the bone.
Moreover, the chance to plan the entire procedure allows us to plan and perform a fixed prosthesis independently from the surgical intervention.
It is therefore possible to simultaneously insert it in the implant.[/accordion_item][accordion_item parent_id=”” title=”What are mini-implants?” id=”” class=”” style=””]They are traditional implants with a reduced hight and a greater length.
They are used where the lack of bone does not enable to insert implants of normal dimensions. Their duration in time can be less certain than the one of a normal implant.[/accordion_item][/accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
