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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Badly Fitting Third Teeth are a Thing of the Past
“No one has to pit up with ill-fitting, rubbing dentures. Dental prostheses that can be anchored firmly with implants make your life easier and give you more self-confidence – because the prosthesis cannot accidentally come out of the mouth when eating or smiling!”
