How does the implantation of artificial tooth roots work and how secure is the implant-borne denture?

Irrespective of whether you have lost just one, several or even all of your teeth, implants provide versatile and individual solutions. A range of implant sizes and variants enable optimum restoration of your normal occlusion. The implant is inserted in the jawbone, under local anaesthestic, on request also under general anaesthestic. The implant then needs a few months until it grows solidly together with the jawbone. During this time, you will be fitted with a provisional prosthesis. Any existing prosthesis can also be provisionally reworked. After the healing phase, the final prosthesis is screwed or cemented onto the implant.

In normal cases, the latest methods even allow immediate restoration using implants and prosthesis without having to wear a temporary solution. To achieve long-term success, optimum oral hygiene of the patient must be ensured before each implantation. This is achieved through a professional prophylaxis programme. If necessary, extensive dentition restoration measures or regeneration and reconstruction treatments of the jaw bones are also required to achieve the optimum starting conditions for implantation.
