IMPLANTOLOGY

"As time goes by..", to quote Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca.

Time goes by for each one of us, and of course for our teeth as well. If unfortunately, after taking the appropriate precautions, some teeth are lost, it is a relief to note that Implantology has recently reached a great level of success.

This is thanks to the use of "Osseointegrated Implants".

  • These implants can be compared to a "screw", positioned in the bone, that substitutes the missing tooth. (see figs. 1 and 2)

  • In a situation in which all the teeth are missing it is possible to replace them individually, even if we suggest an "implant supported overdenture" (more successful and less costly).
    In this case, all the teeth are missing in the upper and/or lower jaw, and we use only 2-4 implants, while a "horse shoe" shaped denture is placed on top (therefore avoiding the use of glue, which is often resorted to with a full denture).
    (see figs. 3-4-5).
