The functional principle of a dental implant is the same as that of a wood screw. It is placed very precisely in the jawbone and heals firmly after a few weeks, which means that the cooking structures immediately around the implant regenerate and grow even closer to the screw threads of the implant. A healed implant can absorb high forces and carry the denture on its own. This means that no neighboring teeth need to be affected to replace lost teeth, as would be the case with a bridge, for example. A great advantage of an implant.

Once a dental implant has healed, production of the prosthesis can begin. New digital, navigated implantation methods are so precise that it is even possible to fabricate the prosthesis before the first implant is placed. In any case, the implant now provides the platform to support any form of prosthesis.




Variants of dental implants


The most common forms of dental implants are made of titanium. Titanium has been used for many years in orthopaedic surgery (e.g. for artificial joints) and is considered to be well tolerated since there is hardly any interaction between the material and the body of the implant wearer.

Another alternative material is ceramic implants. They are excellently suited from the point of view of compatibility and aesthetics and outperform titanium in this respect. In terms of price, however, ceramic implants are more expensive than their titanium counterparts.

Furthermore, different shapes and sizes for different areas and situations of the jaw are to be mentioned. In the molar region (molar teeth), shorter but thicker implant variants are often used due to the proximity of the nerve. On the other hand, there are also particularly slim, one-piece implants for the area of the maxillary anterior teeth, for example. We have the right implant sizes and concepts for every requirement so that we can always take the optimal path during planning.
