Dental implants STACHUS MUNICH: The highest quality dental prosthesis
When teeth are lost due to caries, disease or accident, many patients experience this as a burden. Dental implants close the gap in the dentition and restore the quality of life. As the highest-quality dental prosthesis, they are neither functionally nor cosmetically from natural teeth. Laughing heartily and biting down hard are no longer an obstacle!
When is the use of dental implants an option?
Dental implants can be used in different situations:
- to replace a single tooth, for example after an accident (restoration with crown)
- to replace several teeth (restoration with bridge)
- to create anchor points for removable dentures in an edentulous jaw (full denture)
Because of this flexibility, dental implants are a better choice than conventional dentures in many situations. This is because conventional dentures often require grinding down the existing teeth, which are often still completely healthy. In addition, dental implants outperform dentures in particular in terms of stability.
Dental implants have another important advantage: they prevent the jawbone from deteriorating and the remaining teeth from moving.
For whom are dental implants suitable?
In order for the implants to grow firmly into the jawbone and last for decades, a number of prerequisites must be met on the patient’s side. Before a possible treatment, it is therefore bone is sufficient, nerve tracts and tooth roots are in good condition, and there is no untreated periodontitis. Existing diseases and medications can also be a
can also be a contraindication.
If these factors are ruled out or can be treated, dental implants can be placed, provided the jawbone can be inserted, provided that jawbone growth is complete.
As specialists in the field of implantology and due to permanent advanced training and further education we offer you a treatment at the latest medical level. Thanks to the constant patients can now be successfully treated with dental implants who would not have been who could not be treated with dental implants ten or 15 years ago.
Does a dental implant entail risks?
In principle, the absolute majority of all restorations with dental implants proceed without problems. However, as with any operation, there are also risks.
Infections are among the more frequent complications worldwide. Both the soft tissue and the jawbone can be affected. Infections can be traced back to surgical errors and inadequate oral hygiene following implant placement.
Positioning errors occur much less frequently. Incorrect positioning can cause problems with healing and stability may occur.
What material is available for dental implants?
As a rule, the implant, i.e., the artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jaw is made of titanium. Titanium has very good biocompatibility and is durable. Only on this implant body, a tooth-colored bridge, crown or removable denture is attached. The prosthetic restoration (crown, bridge or other dental prosthesis) can be made of different materials.
An alternative material to titanium is ceramic. Ceramics have a similarly high biocompatibility and is particularly advantageous for patients with very thin gums, because the ceramic ceramic resembles the natural color of the bone.
How long does a dental implant last?
Fixed dentures with dental implants are a long-term solution. Studies show that dental implants last last an average of 15 to 20 years. However, there are factors that influence the lifespan of dental implants. Good oral hygiene prolongs the life span, so implants can even last can even last a lifetime. Inadequate oral hygiene and smoking have an adverse effect on the longevity of implants.
