WHAT IS AN IMPLANT?

WHAT MATERIAL IS IT MADE OF?

The implant is a sort of artificial root on which the missing teeth can be reconstructed.
The implants used today are made of titanium, which is intimately connected to the bone without giving rise to adverse reactions.

IS IMPLANT SURGERY PAINFUL?

The surgical procedure necessary to insert implants into the bone is always very well tolerated.
Postoperative pain is usually limited to a few hours and well controlled with common analgesics.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE A COMPLETE REHABILITATION ON IMPLANTS?

The duration of implant therapy is closely linked to the quantity and quality of the bone present.
In the most favorable cases, it is possible to have a masticatory function on implants even on the same day.

CAN I BE ELIGIBLE FOR IMPLANT PLACEMENT?

In general, a patient in good health can undergo implant therapy, regardless of age. However, the presence of periodontitis must be excluded.

WHAT IS THE RISK OF REJECTION OF A DENTAL IMPLANT?

The risk of rejection of a dental implant is non-existent. However, although rare, an implant failure can happen.
Dental implants must always be correlated to valid and serious clinical studies and above all they must be placed by periodontists to exclude the risk of peri-implant bone loss.
