What is an Implant
A dental implant is a titanium device that is inserted into the bone to replace one or more tooth roots. They are fabricated from titanium because it is a highly biocompatible material and rejection or allergies are rare. The implantologist, after taking a patient history, can choose the shape and size of the implant that he or she considers most suitable based on the type of surgery to be performed.
In fact, FMD offers a wide range of prosthetic products and solutions to facilitate the practitioner’s work and expand therapeutic possibilities for the patient.
Reduced time and maximum efficiency
Thanks to the advances that have been made in this area, it is now possible to achieve the replacement of one or even two entire dental arches, even in just a few sessions, reducing the treatment time to just a few days (immediate loading).
Implantology today offers patients numerous solutions to replace natural tooth roots. From the replacement of single elements to entire arches (full arch) via intermediate cases, there are numerous prosthetic solutions that can be adopted, as dental implants provide a solid base on which to build a fixed prosthesis or stably anchor a removable prosthesis.
Software exists that can assist the implantologist in planning the procedure (computer-guided implantology) by helping him or her from the planning stage through surgery, with customized templates that allow the implant-prosthetic procedure to be performed safely, efficiently, and quickly for both fully edentulous and partially edentulous patients.
Your satisfaction is our success
Why an Implant
Dental implantation is the modern ultimate solution to various types of edentulous problems, partial or total, for the replacement of one or more teeth. Potential risks associated with implant treatments are assessed by the implantologist, who informs the patient about proper practices for managing implant treatment.
Proper oral hygiene and periodic checkups at your dentist’s office are essential to promote successful implant treatment. The risks of losing an implant are relatively limited, and titanium, due to its special biocompatibility, offers important certainty from the point of view of osseointegration (rooting of the implant into the bone).
The success rate (survival rate) of dental implants is now very high; FMD implants have achieved high reliability, confirmed by major scientific studies (see: scientific publications) showing a success rate for FMD implants of 99.23% with 15-year follow-up.
No age limit for our implant treatments
Very elderly patients also receive implant therapies; any limiting risk factors the patient may have will be evaluated by the dentist.
