The insertion of an implant is not a painful intervention. It is carried out under local anesthetic, so there is a lack of sensitivity for the part being treated. Even after the intervention, if some pain is present, it is easily cured and controlled with traditional painkillers.
Each adult person can usually undertake an implantological intervention. The fundamental requisite for the placement of an implant is that the mandible or maxillary bone is in a good state. The quantity and quality of the patient's bone are evaluated at the preliminary examination, at the first sitting. For adults, people who have reached skeletrical maturity, so between 18 and 20 for males and 16 to 18 for females.
An implant has a variable diameter between 3.3 and 6.5 mm, it can vary in length between 5.5 and 15 mm and these parameters depend on the situation of the patient's oral cavity. The implant is made from titanium, a natural element quite widespread in nature and perfectly biocompatible. The human body's tolerance for titanium is such that this material can be used in many branches of medicine.
Latest generation implants have a high level of esthetics and quality and a much more natural effect. Not just the abutments are contoured on the osteo-gingival structure of the patient, but the crown reproduces the shape and colour of the dental patrimony of the patient. In this way the implant will feel like a natural tooth because it is in harmony with the other teeth, but because it is perfectly functional for mastication and all the other functions of the oral cavity.
An implant requires the same oral hygiene as real teeth and traditional prostheses: toothbrush and toothpaste, floss, sometimes cleaners, if recommended by the hygienist. It is a good habit to check the oral cavity with regular visits to the hygienist every 6, 9 or 12 months, depending on the indications of your dentist.
In the variety of existing implant-prosthesis systems, the success rate for interventions is high. The quality of the product used is fundamental, as they must be guaranteed by scientific research and clinical documentation. This is the case for Geass implants with the patented laser surface Synthegra, the object of experimentation carried out by the prestigious I.R.C.C.S. Galeazzi of Milan (prof. Lorenzo Drago in collaboration with prof. Luca Francetti). Reliable medical devices, safe and technologically at the forefront: implant survival success that after 5 years is around 99.2% (multicenter retrospective clinical study on way Milano implants with Synthegra surface conducted by prof. Claudio Mongardini, a specialist in periodontology and implantology).
