Dental implants

Simply firm teeth ...

… are the most fervent wish of many patients. We use our entire expert knowledge to fulfill this wish.

Your own natural tooth cannot be replaced by anything – except by your own tooth on a dental implant.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is implanted into the jaw bone. It may hold a complete set of teeth or single teeth. Dental prothesis based on implants is aesthetic, comfortable and durable. Using implants is very popular as there is no comparable alternative to the natural teeth. Crowns, bridges and protheses are firmly connected with the solidly ingrown implants.


Immidiate implantation

Firm teeth regained quickly

During immediate implantation we insert the implant shortly after the natural tooth has been removed – on the same day if possible. The decelerated immediate implantation is an alternative which takes place not until a few days or weeks later.

This method uses existing jaw bone for the implantation. So we prevent the threatening loss of the bone which may occur during a long phase of healing. Nevertheless a sufficient bone-dimension as well as a periphery free of inflammations are essential preconditions. Experience shows that in many cases a rebuild of the jaw bone is necessary for a successful implantation due to local defects of the bone. In this case we take a close look at which procedure we favour, balancing the pros and cons while taking every dental evidence into account.


Immidiate resilience

Biting again quickly

The immediate implantation has to be distinguished from the immediate resilience. Here, the crown or the bridge will be fixed on the implant directly after the insertion. This procedure is advisable, with a high primal stability of the implant, for example. Even the All-on-4® Technik is adapted for an immediate resilience.

We at Zahnklinik PODBI344 are able to offer the immediate-resilience-concept thanks to the in-house dental laboratory. Our dental technicians start producing the dental prothesis as early as the surgical intervention takes place and modulate it according to your individual requirements.


Navigated implantology

Navigation in dentistry

We speak of navigated implantation when three-dimensional radiographs are used to prepare and endorse the surgical intervention. Here, the data of a digital volume tomograph (DVT) or a computer tomograph (CT) will be edited with the help of a special computer software. So the dentist gets an exact image of the bone anatomy which awaits him during the surgery prior to the procedure. Therefore, the optimal position of the dental implant can be set exactly before the surgery.

 

The NobelGuide®-System – Mock-up-led minimally invasive surgery

One of the leading navigation systems is the NobelGuide®-System. Before the procedure, an on-screen mock-up will be created using the analysis of the DVT-data. On this basis, the correct position of the implants can be projected onto the patient during the surgical intervention. Due to this technique, the intervention is considerably shorter than a conventional treatment. Furthermore, the discomforts after the intervention decrease. However, the jaw bone has to meet certain requirements which will be checked during the preparatory examination.

Advice and information for your safety!

The implantation is a scientifically proven and clinically approved treatment to fix a denture firmly in the jaw bone. Nevertheless, implantation is impossible without a surgical intervention and therefore accompanied by surgical risks. We provide information to our patients during the preliminary stages of a planned surgery in detail and educate them elaborately about possible risks. Experience shows that complications may occur more frequently with:

  • untreated periodontitis (bacterial inflammation of the apparatus which holds the teeth)
  • untreated or badly controlled diabetes
  • Malfunctioning of the bone metabolism, caused by medication or hormonal changes
  • Bruxism (pathological grinding of the teeth)
  • poor oral hygiene
  • heavy consumption of nicotine

In case of one or various risk factors, a careful consideration of the planned treatment is necessary. A cooperation with doctors of other medical disciplines may be useful.
