Implantology in Lugano
Dental implantology refers to that set of surgical techniques designed to functionally rehabilitate a patient suffering from total or partial edentulism through the use of titanium dental implants, surgically inserted into the mandibular or maxillary bone
The implants in turn allow the connection of prostheses, fixed or removable, in order to restore masticatory function.
Currently, the implants most commonly used are the endosseous screw type, in most cases left submerged under the gingiva for a period ranging from two to five months depending on the type of technique and protocol used.
In more complex cases, 3D radiography (three-dimensional digital volumetric tomography) will allow better evaluation of the risks and the successful options for adequate prosthetic rehabilitation.
It is also possible to position the implants in advance using computer modelling, which gives a precise idea of how they will be situated in the patient's mouth.This is a major advantage in terms of safety.Positioning an implant requires a time interval of between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the type of intervention.It is made under local anaesthesia and is absolutely painless.After 10 days, the sutures are removed and after a period of osseointegration of about 10 weeks, the implant is ready to receive a ceramic crown.
This type of examination allows precise visualisation of the bone availability and finding the anatomical structures to be taken into account during the surgery.
