Frequently asked questions

Are dental implants always possible?

Implants permanently replace the missing tooth and its root.

There are no contraindications. Millions of patients worldwide of different ages and ethnicities have implant-supported dentures and are happy with them.

Dental implantology was developed in the 1980s and, since then, it has become an optimal solution.

How long does an implant last?

An implant will last a lifetime if you maintain proper oral hygiene. Through chewing forces, the implant helps stimulate the bone, with which it creates a strong and firm bond. This way, the bone not only doesn’t atrophy but it also maintains its volume over time contributing significantly to facial aesthetics.

Is it a painful procedure?

This procedure is similar to tooth extraction and is usually performed under local anaesthesia.

In the event of simultaneous dental implants, the dentist can consider sedation dentistry to help patients relax during the procedure.

Is it very expensive?

The cost of the full treatment depends on various factors, such as the patient’s anatomical and health conditions, the number of implants required, and the material used for the crown. Usually, dentists can suggest alternative restorations even in terms of cost.

Implant-supported dentures are a solution that provides long-term benefits. Their widespread use confirms their effectiveness and accessibility to a growing number of people.

How long does the treatment last?

It depends on the complexity of the procedure, whether it’s just one tooth or several, a single implant crown or a full-arch bridge.

In the former case, the procedure is quite quick, and patients can leave the practice with provisional dentures in their mouths.

Full-arch bridges can also be done in a few hours, thanks to today’s digital and just-on-4 techniques.

What are the main advantages of a dental implant?

An implant looks exactly like a natural tooth and acquires its same functions.

It’s obvious that, from an aesthetic and functional point of view, fixed and stable dentures not only ensure greater confidence and peace of mind but also help maintain good oral health conditions.

Do daily oral hygiene routines change with dental implants?

It’s essential to treat implant-supported dentures as if they were real teeth. Oral hygiene must be regular and thorough. Flossing and using an interdental brush are highly recommended.

It’s also important to go to the dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and a professional cleaning.

How do I know whether the implant is safe?

Dental implants are invasive medical devices intended to penetrate inside the human body and interact with it. That’s why it’s essential to use only implants that result from serious clinical and scientific research, whose effectiveness has been widely proven and documented.

For your peace of mind, we have created the WINSIX Implant Card that your dentist will give to you after the procedure as a guarantee. This card includes the batch number of the implants and their accessories to ensure traceability in the event of replacements or problems.

Are WINSIX implants guaranteed?

Each step – from the selection of the titanium, strictly sourced from certified and uncontaminated sites to implant machining and packaging – is carried out according to the highest quality standards.

For how long have WINSIX implants been clinically used?

The WINSIX IMPLANT SYSTEM was launched in 1995 and, since then, it has been evolving continuously to provide safe and high-performance devices.

Important partnerships – including with the Dental Clinic at the San Raffaele Hospital, which houses the WINSIX PILOT CENTRE – ensure the continuous scientific development of innovative implant restoration techniques and technologies.
