A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. The model for this artificial tooth root is nature. Implants restore the functions of natural teeth. Compared to many other possibilities of tooth replacement, implants represent a particularly effective solution for closing tooth gaps. Whether a single implant, a bridge supported by an implant or an extensive dental prosthesis, almost all dental prosthesis measures can be supported by dental implants. Thanks to state-of-the-art techniques, such as working with digital volume tomograph, predictable results can be achieved with implants. Thanks to 3D implant planning, implant restoration is a quick and safe solution for replacing missing teeth.
A table with four legs has a secure stand and offers sufficient stability to support a solid table top. If the upper or lower jaw or both jaws have to be treated with an extensive dental prosthesis, then, as with the stability of a table, a secure hold is essential. A single implant clearly provides too little support for dental prostheses, such as removable or fixed prostheses. The same applies to two and three implants. Optimum statics for extensive dental prostheses can only be achieved with four implants. With four implants and 3D planning using DVT, the precise and parallel placement of these four necessary implants can be reliably achieved. Thanks to many years of experience, we achieve the greatest possible stability here.
Immediate implantation is when a tooth is removed within a treatment appointment and immediately treated with a dental implant. It is not only possible to implant immediately and not plan another procedure for it, this procedure is often particularly useful. In many cases the tooth is extracted, then the bone has to heal and in the next step the bone is prepared for the implant. This procedure is still practiced as a standard procedure. However, the implant can also be inserted when the tooth is removed. Prerequisite for this: the bone is sufficiently high and thick and there is no inflammation either on the bone or on the soft tissue. Such immediate implants save time and provide an optimal aesthetic result. With our many years of experience and modern equipment, we accompany our patients to results that leave nothing to be desired, even during immediate implant placement.
When a tooth has to be removed, there is always a serious reason for it. The implant is an effective solution to close the gap. However, in order to ensure the best possible results, the extraction of the tooth must be carefully planned. In many cases an osteotomy is necessary. Here, for example, tooth fragments that are wrongly positioned, severely destroyed or remaining in the jaw are removed by surgery. Osteotomy is necessary to prevent inflammation. With us, the planning of an implantation already begins with the extraction of the tooth. We also focus on gentle treatment of bone and soft tissue. Precise diagnostic procedures such as DVT and gentle techniques such as ultrasound surgery (piezo surgery) support our cautious approach. If an immediate transplantation is not possible, we still start the bone augmentation with bone substitute material or another suitable technique at the first operation. Hard and soft tissue are thus optimally prepared for implantation.
