IMPLANTS IN SPLIT

A safe alternative to conventional tooth replacement

Three-dimensional computer planning is possible with a digital volume tomograph (DVT). It is done before certain dental procedures, for example before implantation. With the help of digital volume tomography, several cross-sectional images of the jaw are made, which ultimately results in a three-dimensional image. The 3D image provides accurate representations of the anatomical structures of the jaw and is therefore much more accurate than conventional two-dimensional images. The dentist can see exactly where the bone has sufficient density and height and where the mandibular nerve passes. The position of the implant can thus be determined very precisely.

What is dental implant?

Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone. Individual crowns, bridges or dentures whose shape and color are adapted to other teeth can be attached to them. By combining the achieved function and appearance, it is possible to regain satisfaction with one’s own teeth.

Even with completely edentulous jaws, implants can regain their function and aesthetics. Your dentist will know if the condition of the jaw is suitable for implants or if the bone needs to be pre-treated.

For more aesthetics, zirconium abutments can be used. An abutment is a part that protrudes from the gums and is screwed to the implant and then a crown is placed on it. Zircon offers the advantage of more aesthetics and is mainly used in the front.

Welfare and quality of life

Healthy teeth are an important part of quality of life. Satisfaction with oral health significantly depends on whether you can chew and drink vigorously without problems and whether you are able to speak clearly or constantly hide your smile. Your dentist will therefore use all of his skills to restore the natural function and appearance of your teeth to their original condition. Modern dentistry offers a variety of options to achieve this. Implantation of artificial tooth roots made of titanium ensures excellent results.

Peri-implantitis

Inflammation of the area around the implant can occur in patients who have had implants for a long time. This disease is known as peri-implantitis and is similar to periodontitis, which can also occur in natural teeth. Periimplantitis is associated with inflammation and regression of the mucosa and bone around one or more implants. The preliminary stage of peri-implantitis is mucositis, an inflammation of the lining that surrounds the neck of the implant. Plaque deposits on implants are primarily responsible for this inflammatory process. They indicate inadequate oral hygiene. Symptoms such as sweet halitosis, bleeding gums, pulling gums, or pain when brushing teeth in the implant area may indicate peri-implantitis. If left untreated, peri-implantitis inevitably leads to implant loss. Therefore, regular check-ups in our office and thorough dental care are of great importance. At an early stage, with targeted therapy and professional cleaning of the implant, the inflammation can be stopped and its progression in the bone can be prevented in the long run.
