No. Studies indicate that:
98.7% OF IMPLANT PLACEMENT PROCEDURES ARE SUCCESSFUL.
Implant placement is a very subtle and precise procedure performed under local anaesthesia. It consists in placing the implant in the correct location in the bone. Then the healing (osteointegration) period begins, during which a permanent connection between the surface of the titanium implant and bone is created. This process usually lasts for 3-6 months or less, if oral conditionsfor implant-bone integrationare favourable. After this time, the next, prosthetic stage of treatment can begin (see -> implant-based prosthetics).
IMPLANTOLOGY AND BONE REGENERATION ARE BASIC PROCEDURES THAT IMPROVE FACIAL APPEARANCE.
Implant placement not only restores missing teeth, but also maintains the bone in the subsequent years. Tooth extraction always leads to bone atrophy, which affects the aesthetics of the entire face, causing, for instance, sinking facial profile. The implant placement procedure should be carried out soon after extracting the teeth, before bone atrophy progresses and the teeth adjacent to the gap begin to displace.
The ASTRA TECH Implant System™ used at Villa Nova clinic was developed with biological and biomechanical principles in mind. It is one of a few dental implant systems based on thorough pre-clinical and clinical research studies. The ASTRA TECH Implant System™ offers shorter healing time, less time spent by the patient at the dentist’s surgery and the confidence of predictable, durable and aesthetic results that can only be guaranteed by many years of clinical trials.
