Project Description

Dental implantology is the set of methodologies, techniques, and tools that allow for the replacement of one or more teeth with ‘artificial roots’ that, through a biological process known as osseointegration, securely fuse with the bone and enable the application of a fixed prosthesis. The replacement of lost dental elements is the most physiological way to restore proper function and aesthetics.

Contrary to some current trends of thought, prosthetic rehabilitations on implants are procedures that require specific expertise and significant experience from the team involved, including specialists in oral surgery, prosthodontists, dental technicians, and periodontists. The treatment plan should be carefully constructed collaboratively, considering various expertise and based on the specific needs of the patient, in order to achieve a perfectly personalized therapy.


A dental implant is an artificial titanium screw designed to replace the root of a missing tooth.

The dental implant is made of titanium or zirconia, both materials completely biocompatible and not subject to rejection by the body. However, it is possible for an implant to fail for reasons other than rejection. Titanium, the material of which a dental implant is composed, is absolutely biocompatible and cannot undergo rejection in any way.

Implants that are correctly placed, prosthetically restored, and subjected to careful maintenance can last the entire lifespan.

In most cases, a standard local anesthesia is sufficient. However, for more complex procedures or specific situations, the support of an anesthesia specialist is very useful to monitor vital signs or perform ‘conscious sedation’.

Bone grafting refers to the placement of bone or bone substitutes into the jawbone to reconstruct an area where there is insufficient volume.


The ideal material for bone grafts remains the patient’s own bone. When, for various reasons, this is not available, synthetic or animal-derived materials can be used in addition or as an alternative.

The main advantage of immediate loading is the ability to attach a prosthesis to the implants immediately after their placement. It’s important to note that, for this to be possible, specific requirements are necessary, including the absolute initial stability of the implants.


Implantology is currently the best procedure for replacing one or more missing teeth. From approximately 18 years old and onwards, there is no age limit for undergoing implant treatment. It is essential to consult with a specialist who has extensive experience in this field to assess the general and local conditions suitable for the procedure.
