In our Berlin MKG practice: dental implants made of titanium or ceramic
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are introduced into the jaw by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and then firmly fused with the bone (osseointegration). After 3 to 6 months the dentist fixes the fixed dental prosthesis, ie a crown or bridge, permanently on this foundation modeled on nature.
In most cases, the implant is made of high-purity titanium. This pure metal is biocompatible and suitable in the long term to enter into a durable and resilient connection with the jaw. Since the jawbone can be very thin and transparent in some people, especially in the anterior region, and the titanium implant would then be visible as a shadow under certain conditions, our practice has the possibility of applying these special areas ceramic implants , These are suitable for esthetically particularly demanding regions, eg in the anterior region, and are almost invisible in the bone due to their white ceramic color.
The later wearing feeling is generally indistinguishable from that of a natural tooth in the case of an ingrown implant with an esthetic crown.
The provision of dental implants and crown or bridge restorations offers patients of all ages many opportunities to restore their natural chewing function, improve their speech function and restore lost aesthetics.
A dental implant also trains the jawbone. When chewing the implants are transmitted via the dental implants by train and pressure in the jaw in natural form in the bone, completely different than the burden of removable denture plates that lead to the loss of jawbone as a result of their long-term use. The lifelike loading of the jaw by ingrown implants contributes significantly to the long-term preservation of the jawbone.
Often we are asked if an implantation, eg with very small residual jawbone or with certain bone diseases, is even possible. Since every person is unique in its peculiarities, no blanket yes-or-no answer can be given.
We are happy to discuss with you in a personal consultation possible surgical options and alternatives.
Painless dental implantation
During the actual implantation, after local pain elimination at the planned location in the row of teeth, where the tooth to be replaced is missing, the gum is opened and a precisely fitting channel is inserted into the jawbone in which the artificial tooth root fits perfectly. After closure with the finest suture, the outpatient procedure is completed.
Now the implant has to heal in the bone and under the mucous membrane for 3-5 months. During this time, usually a provisional dentures, which has been previously made by the dentist or home dentist, worn and there are regular checks.
After this time, the so-called exposure takes place. In this procedure, the implant is superficially exposed and then the dentures can be fixed. Since a dental implant carries exactly the tooth crown to be replaced, a grinding of the neighboring teeth (as with conventional bridges) is not necessary
