Areas of implants applications

The replacement of the lost teeth by implants is for us a day-to-day routine and is, whenever required, done with the most modern CT-supported planned performance.

Most operations, when performed by a qualified surgeon, can be done with the minimum of invasive action and on a simple planning basis.

Our credo: The modern therapy procedure too must be affordable and payable.

Single implants

Single teeth that have been lost as the result of an accident, periodontitis and gingivitis (gum diseases) or caries, may be replaced with a crown thanks to implants.

The immediate-loading implants, are placed immediately after the extraction of the tooth (possible only in case of inflammation-free bone with the optimal bone mass), whereas delayed-loading implants are put only when, following the tooth extraction, the bone has healed.

In both cases the appropriate implants are firm subsequent to the healing. The crown that is set following the process of the postoperative healing of the implant may have a perfectly natural shape, just like your own tooth.

Missing molars

When there are no teeth at the end of the row, that is where there are no final teeth, we are dealing with a (one-sided or both-sided) free-end situation. Where the final teeth are missing, a firmly-set dental substitute (bridge) can not possibly be applied.

Within the framework of conventional dental therapy the patient may only be provided with a removable denture, that is with a partial denture. The fitting of a partial denture on the still available teeth (e.g. by the means of clips) excessively burdens these teeth and may contribute to their loosening or inflammation.

Many patients in such situations decide in favor of implant-based denture in order to allow the reinstatement of chewing capability in the area of the side teeth, without having to cope with the typical problems and disadvantages of a partial denture.

Large gaps

When a few adjacent teeth are missing in the row of teeth, we speak of a multiple gap or a linked gap.

As a rule this is connected with the loss of the ability to chew, and in the area of front teeth with the esthetic damage.

By and large, the solution here is to close the gap by several implants, which enables a firm denture.

Total denture

Many toothless patients cannot even conceive that they might wear a total denture. They are afraid of the common disadvantages of a total denture: considerable restriction of the sense of taste or strangling irritation due to the covering of the palate with a total upper-jaw denture, falling down/falling out of a total denture while speaking or eating, incapability of biting off, progressive jawbone atrophy on account of the unnatural burden of the jaws by the resting denture with continually worsening fitting of the latter (frequent denture relining required) as well as the appearance of distorted, concaving facial features.

Even in case of being toothless there is a possibility - through the introduction of several implants - of providing the denture with a firm hold. Depending on your individual ideas and resources, an implant dental care providing the existing denture with a firm hold by the way of implants, or – by the application of a greater number of implants - making possible the fitting of the firm denture (bridge) is quite feasible.

The independent, international convention of experts advises to fit the toothless lower jaw with at least four, and the toothless upper jaw with at least six implants to achieve a secure and long-lasting hold of dentures.
