Dental implants are artificial roots made of titanium and some of zirconia that are placed in the oral cavity to support a single crown, a bridge or even an implant-supported denture (All on 4 or All on 6).
These implants can be used to support fixed and removable prostheses as well as to give orthodontic anchorage. If the local conditions and the general health of patients allow for it, it is possible to insert post-extraction (extraction of one or more teeth and placement of implants at the same time) and, sometimes, immediately loaded implants (positioning of implants and a temporary crown).
Moreover, it is possible to plan implant placement by means of dedicated software that allow to perform minimally invasive surgical interventions, reducing postoperative discomfort, particularly in patients with fear of pain. If bone tissue is reabsorbed, in most cases it is possible to place implants by means of bone and/or soft tissues regenerative procedures (grafts).
This will give you back the beautiful and natural smile you once had. Before placing an implant, a thorough exam has to take place, such as digital 3D x rays, pictures and models, so the implant can be successful.
