Implants are artificial tooth roots that replace missing tooth roots. They are anchored to the jaw bone and serve as a base for crowns, bridges or dental prostheses. Both individual teeth and missing rows of teeth can be replaced. As even one missing tooth can lead to movement of opposing teeth, it is important to replace it. In the case of several missing teeth, implants provide the optimal foundation for high-quality prosthetics.

The success of implantology is primarily dependent on good oral hygiene and regular check-ups. When all the relevant factors are satisfied, the implants can last a lifetime.

Sinus lift

The maxillary sinus is often enlarged after the loss of a tooth or several teeth. In some cases, this means that there is not enough bone material for implantation.

Depending on the case, a sinus lift may therefore be performed before or during an implantation. This involves lifting the mucous membrane of the maxillary sinus. Depending on the amount of bone material, two different methods can be used: internal or external sinus lift.

Bone regeneration

Bone regeneration is necessary when there is not enough jawbone left for an implantation or when the jawbone has already shrunk. This is often the case after periodontal disease. As well as providing the basis for implants, the jawbone is also essential for the retention of dentures. The risk of bone loss is particularly high after the loss of teeth. High-precision surgical techniques can rebuild jaw ridges and restore the facial profile.

3D diagnostics

Today's state-of-the-art techniques make it possible to see the jawbone in three dimensions long before the operation and to plan the implantation. This enables the actual procedure to be minimally invasive and gentle on the tissue thanks to an implantation template.
