Implantology deals in the substitution of missing teeth (single teeth, groups of teeth or entire arches) through the insertion of biocompatible and resistant titanium, devices, which act as artificial roots onto which it is possible to insert a prosthesis. Implants are an ideal solution to regain masticatory functions, diction and esthetics. The solutions proposed by Geass are reliable, safe and avant-guarde, endorsed by clinical studies and scientific experiments conducted by the I.R.C.C.S. Galeazzi in Milan, by the most prestigious Italian universities as well as sector professionals and opinion leaders who are internationally renowned.
Prostheses are the reconstruction of teeth in synthetic, innocuous material (like ceramics, zirconium and composites) which make it possible to restore correct mastication and natural esthetics of the mouth when the original teeth have been compromised. The prostheses can be divided into fixed and removable ones and are inserted onto natural teeth or implants. Fixed prostheses cannot be removed by the patient, as opposed to removable ones.
Oral surgery deals in the extraction of teeth and roots, as well as the diagnosis and surgical treatment of pathologies, trauma, and defects which relate to functional and esthetic aspects of soft tissue and bone of the mouth, gums and maxillary bones.
Periodontology studies the tissues which support the dental arches, i.e. the gums and bone, and all the problems connected to them which threaten the stability of the teeth. Dental mobility may be caused by diverse factors, which involve the gums or the alveolar bone and which require different types of intervention – some not surgical – but which must be resolve.
It is not rare for a patient to have scarce alveolar bone, that is the part of the bone (ridge) which surrounds and supports the tooth. When this part of the bone is reduced and excessively retreated, the prosthesis looses firmness and becomes mobile. The solution which does not require bone regeneration surgical intervention is that of short implants to stabilize the prosthesis. They are reduced dimension implants (5 and 6.5 mm) which do not need surgical incisions to be applied, offering a rapid and convenient solution.
way Short implants produced by Geass are ideal to build crowns which are not bulky and which are able to support elevated masticatory loads in cases of extremely reduced bone ridges, as they maintain the bone levels stable over time and permit safer and more predictable osseointegration.
A computer assisted technique which makes it possible to plan implant success precisely, when a single tooth or several teeth are missing or in cases of total edentulia, where the benefits are even more evident.
The intervention is planned by starting off with a CT scan of the dental arches, the information is then stored in a computer. Using specific software, you virtually simulate the surgical operation to be carried out, planning every phase. Subsequently, a surgical guide is created in the laboratory which permits positioning of the implants in the exact position, with no chance of making mistakes. The guide makes the intervention predictable, so much so that the implants are inserted directly into the gingiva, without having to make incisions or sutures. This method is non invasive and absolutely precise as well as meaning one single sitting to reconstruct missing teeth, with the guarantee of rapid and painless post-op recovery.
Geass has developed Geadrive, computer guided surgery which allows you to plan the optimal position of the implants, design the prosthetic rehabilitation for a guaranteed esthetical and functional result.
A technique which allows you to substitute missing teeth with implants and relative prostheses, fixed or temporary, within 24 hours, without needing to wait the usual two or three months for healing. An interventional method which is non invasive, which makes it possible to reduce the number of interventions and relative costs, ensuring an excellent esthetic result and immediate restoration of masticatory functions. The intervention is fast and safe, however, it can only be carried out if the patient has a sufficient amount of bone to house the implants.
The flapless techniques are surgical treatments with an approach of minimum invasiveness, which do not foresee the use of scalpels and do not need suture stitches. The result is greater intervention ease with less consequences for the patient in terms of bleeding, pain and swelling. This type of intervention allows for the treatment of zones where traditional techniques would mean higher risks because of proximity to nerve fibers and arterious vessels. The flapless technique is used in implantology, for mini sinus lifts, dental extraction and treatment of periodontal diseases.
Used for the treatment of the upper arch, it is a bone reconstruction surgical intervention possible in narrow ridges which are adequately high. The procedure foresees a parallel cut to the direction of the teeth in order to separate and widen the ridge, with potential use of grafts or fillers. Post-op recovery after this reconstructive surgery is minimum, but present.
Guided bone regeneration is a bone reconstructive surgery which uses filler materials and reabsorbable membranes as well as non reabsorbable ones to promote the formation of new bone. This intervention makes it possible to reconstruct the implant site before or at the same time as the insertion of the implant itself. This technique is also called Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR).
This indicates a reconstruction bone surgery in which bone is taken form intraoral sites of the patient (the chin or mandibular corner) or, in cases of particularly extended grafts, extraoral sites (the hip or cranial teca). The bone is taken in blocks, which are contoured and fixed in the site using small titanium screws.
Conscious sedation (or analgesia) is a sedation protocol without contraindications, of nitrous oxide (N2O), a calming substance with rapid effects. Conscious sedation is useful when adults are anxious, it can also be used on children and an aneathesist is not necessary. It is used at the beginning of the sitting using a perfumed mask, the nitrous oxide has no collateral effects and is immediately eliminated by the organism, so that the patient can go back to normal activity at the end of treatment.
