medical knowhow meets technology

When technology is put at the service of medical knowledge, the results are excellent and longlasting. This is the philosophy that has always guided the work of the Istituto Odontoiatrico Versilia in Forte dei Marmi. “Without the necessary clinical expertise, even the most advanced tools are impotent,” explains Dr. Francesco Ciucci, head of the institute. “Machines can offer invaluable support, certainly, but the results will always depend on the clinicians, on their knowledge and their organization.” Technology can ensure patient comfort. For instance, the intraoral scanners. These innovative devices use a tiny camera linked to highly-evolved software to analyze a patient’s oral cavity, and so completely do away with the discomforts of conventional impressions. It also permits programming prosthetic or orthodontic treatment, showing patients the steps in their treatment and even the final result. And since it reduces discomfort, patients of all ages are more likely to accept treatment with a smile.

In orthodontics, the conventional metal brackets and braces have been replaced with comfortable, removable clear aligners. An app lets patients follow the progress of their treatment.


The institute has always made ongoing scientific training and technological innovation its priorities, to give patients the best possible treatment and guaranteeing their wellbeing. Today, Dr. Ciucci’s personnel can perform tele-X-ray diagnostics – the cephalometric studies which are essential to conducting orthodontic treatments in full respect of facial aesthetics and jawbone development – and volumetric x-ray imaging for surgical and implant prosthetics assessments. And patients (both adults and children) at the institute can also benefit from nitrous oxide sedation, by nasal mask, for a calm and comfortable visit to the dentist.
