What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a screw, made of titanium or zirconia, that is inserted into the bone and has the same function as the tooth root. A prosthesis, whether removable or fixed, total, partial or single, is then screwed or cemented onto the implant.

Advantages of implantology
Durable, natural and functional.
Titanium and zirconia are the most widely used materials in orthopedic surgery.
Does the implant hurt?
It is painless, may cause some discomfort later, even less than an extraction.
Titanium or zirconia that replaces the root of the tooth.
What is the purpose?
The purpose of a dental implant is to occupy the space left vacant by one or more missing or extracted teeth, restoring lost chewing function and facial aesthetics.
Even the absence of a single tooth causes chewing, phonetic, postural and aesthetic problems, because adjacent teeth move, occupying the space found free.
The dental implant restores the mouth to its original situation, often improving it. It also restores function to the bone, preventing its loss.
What is immediate load implantology?
In a single session lasting about 3 hours, teeth can be extracted (if necessary), implants and temporary fixed teeth inserted. This optimises the procedure, reducing post-operative pain, quickly achieving the expected result and avoiding functional and aesthetic problems.
In some cases it is necessary to wait two to three days after the operation for the insertion of temporary fixed teeth.
This treatment is assessed with the doctor on the basis of the quantity and quality of the bone, determined by the 3D CT scan.
If the bone is not compatible with immediate loading, bone regeneration techniques or other types of implants (zygomatic and/or pterygoid) are used.
