Implantology

Dental implants are screws made of pure titanium which can be placed into the jaw bone. These implants are later (after a certain period of time when the screw has been incorporated into the bone –which is called osteointegration – used as artificial roots to fix crowns, bridges or any other dental prostheses.

An implant is an artificial tooth root purely made of titanium, which is implanted into the jaw bone to the place of a missing tooth. It is able to transfer the chewing force to the jaw bone. Any dental structures can be placed onto this artificial root which will provide a perfect aesthetic solution. The intervention is completely painless, it is performed under local anaesthesia under sterile conditions. The duration of the operation varies between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the number of implants placed. In case of major surgeries it is possible to ask for general anaesthesia, with the help of our anaesthesiologists. The length of the healing period after placement of the implants varies between 2 and 6 months, after which the dental structure which is put onto it, can be prepared. During this transient recovery period we can prepare a removable, temporary denture. If the thickness of the jaw bone does not allow an immediate implantation, nowadays it is possible to perform the most modern bone supplementation procedures and this way every implantation becomes possible. Implants can replace only one tooth, they can support a dental bridge or they are able to anchor a removable dental prosthesis as well. Advantages of the implants are – compared to traditional bridges or removable dental prostheses – that they do not overload our own teeth, tooth substance loss or polishing the surrounding, intact teeth for placement of bridges can be avoided, and they remain stable for decades if we maintain optimal oral hygiene.

IN WHICH CASES ARE THESE IMPLANTS APPLIED?
Implants can be used in case of losing one or two teeth, implants are used to replace missing teeth, and there is no need to attach them to neighboring teeth, so they will not be polished thanks to this. If posterior molars are missing, only a removable denture can be prepared if there would be no implants available. By placing an implant, preparation of a fix, cemented prosthesis (bridge) also becomes possible.
In case of complete edentulousness (all teeth missing) the prostheses will not remain in its optimal position. In such cases placement of 2 or 4 implants can stabilize or reduce the denture (the palate part above is missing). Due to these facts this solution provides comfort and safety for the patient during speaking and chewing, it helps maintaining social interactions.
In case of placement of six or eight implants we are able to prepare fix, cemented dental prostheses. With the help of dental implantology nightmare of wearing removable dentures - as a signature of old age - can be avoided.

WHY YOU SHOULD COME TO US?
  • In case of our own, hundreds of documented cases the success rate – which is above 97% - meets the requirements specified in international scientific literature.
  • The operations are performed by one of our highly qualified colleagues who owns a German „Master in Implantology” qualification.
  • All interventions are preceded by a digital 3D CT imaging for the highest safety.
  • We provide more years of guarantee for the implantations performed with high quality materials.

Bone Supplementation, Sinus Lift

As a result of an injury or tooth-less status the size and bone substance of the jaw can be reduced. If bone loss outweighs a critical limit, an implantation surgery or tooth replacement cannot be performed without bone supplementation, as there is not enough bone substance to incorporate the implant.

Bone supplementation procedures can be performed by using different type of substances and surgical techniques.

Types of surgical interventions and course of the operation
Sinus lifting is a method to increase the height of the upper jaw bone. During this procedure we increase the height of the bone itself. In order to increase the width of the jaw bone we perform only plastic surgeries during which increasing of the jaw bone width is done by bone supplementation or by using own bone parts. Surgical sites are then covered with different types of membranes, and after 4-6 months of osteointegration the implantation can be performed.

In case of large extents of bone substance loss, size of our own wasted jaw bone can be augmented by using an own so-called bone block. During this procedure we can gain bony substance from our chin, from behind the wisdom teeth of the mandible or – if larger amount of bony substance is needed – from the iliac crest. These bone parts are attached to the jaw bone with titanium screws, then spaces are filled with synthetic bone and the surfaces are covered with membranes. Screws are removed after the bone supplementation, mainly during the implantation surgery.

Bone block surgeries – during which the bone parts are removed from the chin or from the region behind wisdom teeth – are ambulatory operations, while surgeries affecting the iliac crest are performed in oro-surgical operating rooms.

Sinus lift surgery (sinus lift, sinus elevation)
This intervention has to be performed if we plan an implantation, but the height of the bone is not enough in case of upper small molars or large molars, implantation cannot be performed as the bone is not capable of incorporating the implant. In such cases a sinus lift-combined bone supplementation is done to increase the height of the upper jaw bone.

Course of the sinus lift surgery
After the explorative surgery we lift the mucous membrane of the sinus through a bone window created on the outer surface of the sinus, we place synthetic or own bone between the mucous membrane and the bone, and finally we close the mucosa.
After 4-6 of healing the implanted bone supplementing substance becomes our own bone.
After the healing period, during another surgery, we place the implants into the newly developed bone, onto which bridges can be placed later.
If we are lucky the implantation can be performed at the same time with bone supplementation. But it is only possible if the size and height of our bone is enough to incorporate the primary attachments of implants. During this procedure the implant neck is located in the bone, its tip is in the bone supplementing substance, which ossifies together with the implant placed.

Surgical Intervention Without Incisions

The aim of our treatments is to minimize the pain experienced during the dental interventions which mostly consist of several steps.

During the procedure without cutting treatments can be completely painless or associated with only a minimal pain, thanks to a special technology. Patients can return to their everyday routine on the next day.
