Sometimes it happens that you prioritise something else and overshadow your smile, going around without one or more teeth.
We take care of you down to the smallest detail, also thanks to technology.
Computer-guided implantology, for example: a planned 3D surgery that helps us ensure that implants are placed in the optimal position taking into account your specific anatomy.
We are here for you, to help you win your smile back, with our own method: light as a feather.

When we talk about implantology, we talk about replacing missing teeth with prosthesis supported by titanium screws. It is a treatment that has been used for years and years and is constantly evolving. Thanks to the innovative technologies present in the practice and specifically the computer-guided surgery, we can offer our patients the possibility to undergo an implant surgery with the possibility that it will be less painful, invasive and less time-consuming than traditional methods.
What is computer-guided surgery?
Guided surgery helps the surgeon to place implants in the maxillary bone with extreme precision, following a specific and planned path by intervening with much more accuracy than traditional implantology techniques, reducing surgical time, trauma and discomfort for patients.
Planning the surgery based on a two-dimensional radiological examination may present limitations related to the impossibility of correctly analysing the volume of bone tissue, such as the thickness, height and conformation of the gingiva, causing serious errors.
Instead, using the technology of computer-guided surgery we obtain three-dimensional images, which allow to reconstruct two- and three-dimensional models very similar to the anatomy of the patient.
How does mini-invasive implantology work?
We start by examining the bone with X-rays and 3D CT scans and with the help of a specific computer software we can simulate the final result, evaluating all the aspects and risks of the surgery.
After this, we make a perforated resin surgical mask, which is fixed in the patient’s oral cavity during the procedure. The purpose of the mask is to guide the surgeon to place the implants exactly where he had planned.
And once the implants are in place, in many cases it is possible to deliver a temporary prosthesis to the patient, created according to the project, within a few hours.
What are the advantages of computer-guided implantology?
The advantages of minimally invasive implantology are many, both for the patient and the surgeon.
Here are some that really make a difference:
- Reduction of surgical timing
- Reducing trauma and discomfort for patients
- Reduction of swelling and bruising at the surgical site
- Reduction of the risk of complications
If you are thinking of undergoing implant surgery, you can rest easy knowing that it is a proven treatment mode. With the help of modern technology, the surgery can be performed quickly and efficiently, obtaining beautiful and natural teeth with the same functional characteristics as the real ones!
