If dental gaps already exist or if the removal of a tooth is inevitable because of an advanced disease, implants provide an excellent possibility to permanently restore the chewing function.
Especially in the case of one-sided free-end situations an implant can prevent a treatment with a removable denture entailing a significantly raised quality of life for most patients.
If an implant therapy is applied titanium screws are inserted into the jawbone. After a healing period of 3-6 months they are supplied with fixed crowns and bridges and can help stabilize removable dentures. Ceramic implants are being offered more and more as well but they are constrained in indication due to manufacturing and material tolerances.
In the case of big osseous defects multiple surgical approaches can increase the bone supply artificially. This is possible depending upon the findings of one’s bone that is being transplanted from a different part of the body or by using artificial bone replacement material. Such methods always entail longer healing phases.
Since many years implantology ranks among scientifically recognised and proven methods. In most cases the result provides the highest level of comfort and function. We only use state-of-the-art implant systems that have scored excellent long-term results.
Experience shows that almost all patients who have opted for an implant treatment have been satisfied with the result to a degree that they would always chose this method again.
