Dental Implants

In addition to dental crowns, dental bridges, inlays/onlays, dental fillings, veneers, and dentures, they are one of the options for dentures. In the case of tooth loss, dental implants are the cheapest option, as the aesthetics are particularly impressive. Other properties of implants are strength and stability, as well as the best chewing function, just like your own teeth. Another advantage of this therapy is the combination of good tolerability and the great durability of an implant. Both single and multiple teeth can be incorporated functionally. In addition, implants allow the attachment of bridges or fixed prostheses to an edentulous jaw. The area of ‚Äč‚Äčapplication also includes the condition of the jawbone. Dental implants have been known for 30 years and have become an integral part of dentistry for the last 10 years.

How dental implants work?

The implantation procedure is as follows: Implants are placed in the jawbone. This can be done either immediately after the extraction of the tooth (immediate implant) or after a previous tooth loss (post-implant). The implant must then heal in the bone. Once this is done, a crown, bridge, or denture can be placed on top. How long is the healing phase required for implants? The healing time is determined by the bone quality and bone volume. It takes 3 months for the lower jaw and 6 months for the upper jaw. Depending on the findings, immediate implants can be provided with a denture (immediate loading).

Dentists often recommend a stress-free healing phase, since the biological integration of the implant can only take place after weeks or months.

Which material is used for implants?

Dental implants are usually made of titanium, which scientific studies have proven to be optimal. Titanium implants in combination with a titanium/zirconium structure show the best biological result.

Are dental implants pain free/low pain?

Regarding the question of the painfulness of dental implants, it can be said that this is hardly the case since the area in question is locally anesthetized during the operation. Afterwards, there is only slight pain, which painkillers can help with. Nevertheless, a rest period of up to three days should be observed after a more complex procedure.

Does a dental implant have good tolerance?

As far as the compatibility of implants is concerned, it can be noted that titanium is very well accepted by the human body and does not cause any allergies. This material is also used throughout medicine.

The durability of dental implants

The durability of implants cannot be generally stated. However, long-term studies prove the great durability of the material of an implant, even for a lifetime. The durability of implants depends, among other things, on the condition of the jawbone, the measures taken during bone formation, and the cooperation of the patient, but the experience of the implantologist is always essential.

Our three-dimensional X-ray technology (digital volume tomography), including computer-assisted navigated implantology, offers patients safety and comfort during treatment with dental implants. Regular check-ups should make it possible to identify any problems. Implant loss can easily be remedied by a new implant. The cost of implant treatment depends on the materials used and the prosthetic solutions.
