Implantology is the dentistry branch that recovers open spaces (without teeth) by inserting artificial dental “roots” that support a tooth prosthesis (crown). This happens by implanting a titanium screw into the bone tissue, where was tooth loss.

What is an implant?

The implant is an artificial “root” implanted in the jawbone. By replacing the dental root, the implant allows the insertion on it, of a prosthesis (crown). Therefore, it allows aesthetic and functional rehabilitation (chewing), giving a better quality of life to the patient.

What is the function of the implants?

The implants serve to replace lost teeth in order to recover aesthetics and masticatory function, avoiding the overload of neighboring teeth, as happens with fixed prostheses supported in the other teeth and contain local bone resorption.


Is the treatment painful?

The treatment with implants isn’t painful. It’s performed with conventional local anesthesia and, with the new technologies, surgical trauma is lower and the recovery is faster.

What are the treatment options with implants?

It’s normal to resort to implants when exists a tooth failure to recover your aesthetics and masticatory function. There are three possible options:

– Unit Implant;
– Bridges over implants;
– Fixed total prosthesis (All-On-4®);
