Dr Wilson Grigolli – Dental Implants Expert at Dental House

Dr Wilson Grigolli DMD PhD is a renowned European implantologist, having placed in the region of 27,000 dental implants to date. He is a specialist in Oral Surgery, Periodontology and Implant procedures.

Dr Wilson Grigolli

Wilson is vastly experienced in the most challenging and unusual surgical cases and is one of the few clinicians in Ireland with the expertise to use the Zygoma Dental Implant procedure. Zygoma dental implants are used in the upper jaw when there is insufficient bone for ordinary implants. They provide support for implant bridgework where there has been a substantial amount of bone loss from the upper jaw, and ordinary implants cannot be used on their own to support a bridge. This is a very specialist procedure and Dental House is one of a few practices in Ireland with the expertise to use such procedures.

Wilson has worked with Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark the creator of the modern dental implant. He lectures internationally, and is recognised throughout Europe as an expert in dental implant surgery and full mouth rehabilitation.

You may recognise him from the Sky Arts’ documentary “A Wreck Reborn”, which tells the story of Shane MacGowan of The Pogues’ smile makeover.

Dental Crowns Explained

A crown, sometimes known as a dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. 

Dental crowns explained

If you want a smile that’s your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth to help restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.

A crown can also help to strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold said filling.

They can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or to restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discoloured or misshapen. Most commonly, crowns are used to cover dental implants.

If your dentist recommends a crown, it is probably to correct one of these conditions. Your dentist’s primary concern, like yours, is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright.
