Two generations of dentists have made this Office a center of excellence in Catania for over 50 years. The health and restoration of mouth function and teeth are the key point of our daily commitment.

To treat our patients with the highest standards, dr. Amato, graduated from the American Dental Board, a specialist in Periodontics and Implantology at New York University, leads a team of dentists, each of them has got advanced international training in their specialty expertise. In addition, each member of our team has contributed to publications and is a listened opinion leader in the international scientific Community.

The careful study and detailed planning of each individual case provides individualized treatment plans that correspond to the real needs of the patient, from the simplest solutions to complex and advanced one.

The ongoing clinical research and the rigid implant surgical protocols are our pride. By employing the latest surgical techniques and the finest materials available today we enable our patients to recover masticatory function and aesthetics in a very short time, allowing, even through bone regeneration, the possibility to place implants in sites where until a few years ago was not possible to propose this solution.

The technology shows its highest expression in Computer Guided Implantology. The planning of each case is studied digitally, through computer programs that simulate implants placement on a model drawn on the CT, the margin for human error is nearly completely eliminated, allowing a precision unattainable otherwise. The result is we can give patients new natural-like dentition immediately in the same session. This Office can boast the use of immediate loading and immediate dentures protocols for 15 years!

In our Clinic to increase surgical comfort, patients are given the opportunity to take advantage of sedation under the supervision of an anesthesiology specialist. Sedated patients are so far managed in safety and they breathe on their own, but they are perfectly vigilant, in total comfort and relaxation. Consequently, there is full cooperation and an absolute elimination of the anxieties and dentist phobias. Simultaneously pain-killers and anti-inflammatory are subministrated in a way that any post-operative discomfort is minimized, if not totally eliminated.

Long and sophisticated surgery operations may be performed in total relaxation.

The Patients can trust the care of professionals of undoubted and proven reliability, make sure that the therapies offered and agreed will then be completed successfully and without any unpleasant surprises. This an added value to each performance that Studio Amato can always offer each patient.

Excellence can be taught. Our team dedicate much time to train other dentists who desire to improve their knowledge and provide increasingly innovative implant solutions in their treatment plans. Meetings with groups of colleagues and individualized sessions are commonplace in our structure. The more complex multidisciplinary treatment plans can then be provided under the guide of high profile professionals.

We live our profession with an inexhaustible enthusiasm for many years, together with our experience we can advise and direct our patients to a number of choices that best meet their liking.
