Implant-Supported Restorations

Whether individual teeth are missing or the whole mouth has been cleared, thanks to modern implantology and implant prosthetics we can anchor the denture safely. As a certified dental clinic with special focus on implantology we offer you a comprehensive range of implant supported restorations.

Since the founding of our dental clinic, implantology and tooth restorations (prosthodontics) have been our focus areas of treatment. We have many years of experience and expertise in placing dental implants and can thus offer our patients the best possible treatment.

Advantages of implant supported restorations

Implant-supported crowns, bridges and dentures can perfectly close small and large gaps without damaging adjacent teeth. An implant itself is the artificial tooth root, which also ensures that the jawbone is not further shrunk. Another advantage with implant-supported restorations is that they are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth in terms of appearance and feel.

We offer you:

  • Safe and established procedures due to over 1,000 successfully placed implants per year
  • Latest technology in diagnostics and therapy
  • Clinically and scientifically proven surgical methods
  • Bone augmentations and bone grafts with your own bone
  • High-quality implant systems
  • We only use implants from big implant companies because they are going to last 30 years or more
  • Modern operating rooms
  • Comfortable recovery rooms
  • Established high-end hygiene protocols

What is the difference between conventional prosthodontics and implant prosthodontics?

In conventional prosthodontics, your own teeth serve as an anchor for the dental restoration. In order to establish the necessary shape and form to be able to mount a dental restoration, healthy neighbouring teeth often have to be ground down. Thus they lose around 50% of the volume of the visible part of the tooth (known as the clinical tooth crown).

Thanks to implant-supported restorations we can protect your own teeth because the crowns and bridges or dentures don’t sit on the teeth, but on the implants. Ill-fitting, abrasive partial and full dentures are also a thing of the past because we can anchor them safely on implants.

Dental implants: How do modern implant restorations work?

What to choose — removable dentures or fixed restorations?

Both fixed and removable dentures can be used in combination with implants. If you are not manually restricted the decision is very simple: fixed restorations last double the time — 20 years versus around 10 years for removable restorations. Additionally fixed restorations give you the feeling of having your own teeth back.

What to choose — complete dentures or implant-supported dentures?

A complete denture is only sitting on the gums and has no additional anchoring. Thanks to implants, however, the implant-supported denture holds much better than a complete denture, which is only supported by wobbly and receding gums. Older patients, in particular, who tend to lose their dexterity, and are often less able to clean fixed implant-supported restorations often prefer implant borne removable dentures that sit much better than dentures without tooth or implant support.

Possibilities of implant prosthetics

There are almost no limits to implant prosthetics: thanks to crowns, bridges, partial and full dentures, small and large tooth gaps and total toothlessness can be treated. If there is complete toothlessness or foreseeable tooth loss, the concept of “fixed teeth in a day” offers the possibility of placing implants and anchoring a bridge on them within a single day. We will decide together with you which prosthetic restoration is best after a detailed consultation and cost estimation.

The perfect interplay between the departments of implantology and prosthodontics results in an aesthetically convincing treatment result. Our dental clinic has a recognised focus on implantology and implant prosthodontics (certified by the German Society of Implantology, DGI), as well as a certified specialisation of the German Society of Prosthodontics and Biomaterials (DGPro). This means we place particular importance on long-lasting restorative materials that have been tested in clinical trials.
