What innovations are there in oral surgery?

Research into a simple, relatively non-invasive surgical method, like the one used at our practice, with abutment implants.

What are the risks to a patient in this type of procedure?

Since the surgical procedure is not very invasive the patient can have greater peace of mind. The post-operative stage is shorter than in the past and this means that the method can be extended even to people who are in poor health.

How long has this implant technique been in use?

It originates from the “Italian School of Implantology”; the history of implants goes back at least 30 years.

What is the success rate for the procedure?

Both applied clinical research and all recognised literature point to a success rate of 95% for implant surgery by intraoral welding.

Is the procedure unsuitable for some patients?

Not at all; the simplicity of the procedure and the minimal surgical insult mean that we can operate even on patients with serious disorders (e.g. diabetes, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease).

Are there any side effects, for example after the procedure?

No, because simplicity is the added value of this method. We have no cases of swelling and/or discomfort, even in extremely complex conditions.

Is the technique expensive?

Using abutment implants means that operation times are shorter; furthermore, we don’t need any specific components to produce the implant. This all results in a smaller financial outlay for a patient who is having the procedure.

What materials are used?

Most importantly, we use medical devices complying with current safety regulations. The abutment implant and the two-stage implant are made of titanium, known to be the most biocompatible metal.

How long after the procedure will I get the implant?

When the abutment implant is used, the temporary crown is fitted and cemented into the patient’s mouth immediately after the implant is inserted, so the patient can continue with his normal social life after just one session.

Do patients have to go for regular check-ups?

The patient needs periodic appointments to check that everything is working correctly, and to prevent any abnormal effects.
