About implantology

The dental implant is a surgical intervention through which an artificial root in the form of a titanium screw is inserted in the dental arch, on which a dental crown is subsequently fitted.

The main limits are given by the quantity and quality of the bone in which the implant is to be inserted, the position of the maxillary sinus at the upper arch or the position of the alveolar nerve canal for the lower arch. The main contraindications for dental implant treatment are diabetes, blood diseases and bone diseases, but also subjective factors, such as the insufficient size - height and thickness - of the bone where the implant would be necessary.

The rate of success of implants is very high, between 90-95%, thus becoming an increasingly common prosthesis variant.
