What you should know about dental implantology...

Implants have successfully been used since the early 1960s. Long-term studies confirm a success rate of more than 90%, also in combination with bone augmentation.

Most of the long-term studies are focusing on implants made of titanium. Until today, there is no evidence of any allergic reaction with this extremely biocompatible material.

By supplying a single tooth gap with an implant, the neighbouring teeth remain intact.
Compared to conventional dentures, implants allowed a fixed and palate-free restoration in the upper jaw.

If a bone reconstruction is necessary, the bone volume is normally obtained from inside of the mouth using minimal invasive and safe methods developed many years ago in our clinic and worldwide recognition. This (autogenous) bone is still the best augmentation material presenting a high success rate in comparison to other foreign materials as for example from animals. Many scientific studies as well as more than 25 years of experience show that this procedure is the safest method for long-term success. Already after three months, the bone has healed so well that the implants can be placed. This will soon give you the feeling of your own teeth.

The treatment is painless due to the local anaesthesia and can be performed for more comfort and less stress under sedation. If desired, the treatment can be carried out under general anaesthesia.

In our clinic we put focus on the patient's wishes and individual needs. Our qualified team is taking care of the patient around the clock and is available 24 hours/day and 365 days a year.

The long-term success of an implant treatment depends, among other things, on the following parameters:

  • The experience of the surgeon: Implant surgery requires extensive experience and special knowledge. Inaddition to the high demands on the skills of the dentist, a high level of personnel and operational infrastructure are necessary.
  • Motivation and cooperation of the patient: implant-supported bridges and prostheses require an extra-ordinary good and careful oral hygiene. According to all scientific results, this represents an important parameter for long-term success. Regular recalls are required to supporting the patient‘s oral hygiene and to detect and treat potential harm around the implant's tissue on time.
