Dental Implants

A dental implant is never “just an implant.” It’s the opportunity of regaining lost health, esthetics, and the confidence that comes with it. This opportunity is a once in a lifetime only, make it count! We must see implants as components of our future teeth. Dental implants are the infra-structure of oral health and esthetics when teeth are no longer there. In our vision, diagnosis, planning, and integration of the implant surgery in the architecture of a treatment plan are just as important, if not more important than the surgery itself. For this reason, before any surgery, we plan the final smile and the entire treatment sequence. This approach drives us to correctly plan the ideal position of the dental implants, and the ideal timing in the treatment sequence. This planning can be materialized into surgical guides for complex cases. This way the surgery is precise, predictable, and safe.

Digitally Planned & Guided Surgeries

This type of procedure is planned together with the dental implants position, using a CBCT of the patient (Cone beam computer tomography). If necessary, a surgical guide can be 3D printed to guide the implant position.

The surgery is first planned and simulated digitally. A surgical guide will be 3D printed, leaving the surgery itself to be merely a rehearsal with focus on details.

Bone Grafts

Once a tooth is lost, bone resorbtion follows. Periodontal disease or trauma can also cause bone resorbtion. Bone grafting is a treatment used to rebuild the lost bone, using various surgical procedures and biomaterials. This procedure is essential in complex cases that require dental implant therapy.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw for dental implants to be placed.

A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted.”

The longer the time without teeth, the more probable a sinus lift is needed in order to have enough bone to support dental implants.

Tissue Engineering – Accelerated Healing

PRP therapy is an advanced regenerative technology using biological factors from a patient’s blood to make membranes in which are fabricated to help speed up the healing process with the least trauma.
