A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually in Titanium (biocompatible metal) that is inserted into the jawbone and then grows into it (osseointegrates).
The planning of the implants is done by means of 3D imaging ( Conebeam CT scan) and digital impressions so that "smart fusion " can take place of all these digital data for an optimal aesthetic result and above all a predictable end result thanks to the planning software.
The placement of the implants can thus be done very accurately, with or without the X-Guide.
There are several prosthetic options on implants:
With one or more missing teeth
With crown and bridge work on implants, the adjacent natural dentition does not have to be ground and thus damaged, unlike traditional crown and bridge work.
Completely toothless jaw
The “ Additively Manufactured subperiosteal Jaw Implant” or simply “AMSJI” is a fairly new method for the total prosthetic rehabilitation of the extremely atrophic maxilla (or mandible). Click through for more information about this.
