Dental Implants

The loss of a tooth can be resolved by using dental implants. This is a restoration anchored to a titanium screw inserted into the alveolar bone crest, which allows us to avoid involving the teeth adjacent to the missing element. Sometimes the insertion of the implant and a tooth extraction can be performed at the same time, followed by the immediate application of a crown screwed to the implant. In more complex cases, a bone and soft tissue regeneration technique may be needed. In other cases the placement of endosseous implants can take place through minimally invasive techniques associated with post-operative courses. The actual insertion of the implants takes place through extremely precise guides, without incisions, detachment and suturing of the gingival tissues. The method also offers the possibility of applying fixed prostheses immediately after surgery. Nowadays, the technique to be used for implant placement varies depending on each specific situation because modern dentistry offers several possibilities.

My clinical cases

Smile again
Patient’s request

The patient stopped smiling and wasn’t able to trust dentistry anymore.
After years of shedloads of money spent on several treatments, her mouth was in a dramatic situation: badly treated teeth, broken teeth, poorly performed prosthetic crowns and so on.

Treatment and results

We straightaway established with the patient an excellent relationship based on trust, which allowed her to be fully guided by our team. We had to carry out a rehabilitation process where extraction surgery, implant surgery, endodontic treatment and prosthesis were necessary. In the end, the patient ended up smiling again with confidence, which enormously boosted his self-esteem.

Dental implant and incisive tooth insertion
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to fix his incisor tooth that had been fractured years before, thus returning to smile.

Treatment and results

After taking the X-ray, we noticed the residue of the root of the fractured tooth still in place; therefore we proceeded to remove the root and we inserted the implant along with some regenerative material so as to improve the osseointegration. After three months, we went on to repair the implant itself with a prosthetic crown that allowed the patient to regain tooth function as well as aesthetics and in the end she returned to smile freely.

Back to a beautiful smile
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to go back to her natural smile without being ashamed.

Treatment and results

After careful radiographic and clinical examinations, we found out that the patient’s teeth had already been treated inadequately and had prosthetic crowns filled with caries, which had compromised her oral health. Therefore, in agreement with the patient, we decided to extract all the upper teeth in order to avoid several and painful treatments. Moreover, we contextually inserted eight implants at once with a temporary prosthesis. After six months, the required time span for the mouth to fully recover when applying osseointegrated implants, we applied his final ceramic crowns.

Dental implant on the second premolar tooth
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to rehabilitate both functionally and aesthetically the second premolar tooth, which had a prosthetic crown filled with caries.

Treatment and results

After removing the crown and taking an X-ray, the residual stump was assessed as completely carious, in addition to being badly devitalized. The tooth was extracted and in the same session an implant was inserted along with some regenerative material, in order to improve osseointegration. After three months, the correct amount of time to fully recover, the implant was restored with a long-lasting prosthetic crown that gave a perfect result in terms of function and aesthetics.

Dental implants on an endentulous patient
Patient’s request

The patient was completely edentulous (without teeth) and wore two full mobile prostheses. He wanted to rehabilitate his two upper and lower arches with fixed teeth in order to eat properly again and have a correct social life.

Treatment and results

Within a single session, six implants were applied on the upper arch and five others on the lower arch. We also gave the patient fixed prostheses already anchored to the implants. After six months from surgery, the final prostheses were given to the patient.
