Dental implants without surgery
By inserting dental implants in place of
lost teeth, it is possible to obtain anew an
extraordinary appearance and a masticatory function
analogous to the one present with natural teeth. First the
implants are inserted into the bone. After a few months
the new teeth can be connected, sturdily fixed to the
implant itself. Finally there is the rediscovery of a
mastication provided by fixed teeth.
order to simplify the procedure and diminish the eventual
after-effects of the small surgical intervention of
implant insertion, some strongly innovative procedures
have been developed.

is possible to use a mini invasive surgical approach by
methods that avoid the inconveniency of having to create a
surgical cut in order to insert the implants, thus
avoiding the necessity of stitches in the end. The limit
of implant surgery is certainly the effort of undergoing
oral surgery in which the gingiva is lifted and one or
more implants are inserted into the bone.
first thing to be done besides the usual pre-surgery
evaluations is a three dimensional evaluation of
mandible volume or of the superior arch. Through a
careful CAT scan it is possible to obtain precise
information regarding their form and the bone quantity. In
light of this information it is then possible to realise a
surgery guide. A rigid cover is stably fixed to the
treated arch, which assists the surgeons work to such a
point that it is not necessary to create a surgical
incision. The routers which are fundamental for the site's
realisation are as a matter of fact guided
by special fixtures in the right position with such
precision that it is no longer necessary to create a
surgical incision in order to assess bone anatomy.
the same session
the implants are inserted into the bone, thus the
new fixed and stable teeth are connected to the implants.
With utmost surgical security and orthodontic technical
precision. It is evident that even this technique which is
very sophisticated and state-of-the-art can not be the
solution to every case, but is a treatment that indeed
requires an attentive evaluation by the dentist. More so, the type of mouth closure and mastication
must be examined. The same attention must also be
dedicated to the patient's general health conditions, as
well as to his lifestyle.
a matter of fact, modern medicine orients itself
exclusively on information based on scientific evidence.
Where every choice is founded upon proven and well studied
information, which is then
shared with the patient.
point out that dentistry is also an aesthetic and cosmetic
science, but it is based on strong medical-surgical
connotations. Most certainly, we must not forget the role
that the mouth has, and all of its unconscious
implications that play in the most intimate aspects of our
lives. The mouth is treated in order to have a better
mastication and to have a pleasant smile without having
bad breath. But it is also fundamental to make us feel
more self-confident, to live both more happily and more
