In our Berlin MKG practice: dental implants made of titanium or ceramic
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into the jaw by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and then grow firmly into the bone (osseointegration). After 3-6 months, the dentist permanently fixes the fixed denture, e.g. a crown or bridge, on this foundation, which is modelled on nature.
In most cases, the implant is made of high-purity titanium. This pure metal is body-compatible and suitable in the long term for establishing a permanent 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 using ceramic implants for these special areas. These are suitable for aesthetically particularly demanding regions, e.g. in the anterior region, and are almost invisible in the bone due to their white ceramic colour.
The subsequent wearing comfort of an ingrown implant with aesthetic crown restoration is generally indistinguishable from that of a natural tooth.
The restoration of dental implants and crown or bridge restorations offer patients of all ages a variety of possibilities for restoring the natural chewing function, improving the speech function and regaining lost esthetics.
A dental implant also trains the jawbone. When chewing, the dental implants naturally transfer the stresses caused by traction and pressure into the jaw bone, in contrast to the stresses caused by removable prosthetic plates, which lead to the loss of jaw bone as a result of their long-term use. The lifelike loading of the jaw by ingrown implants contributes decisively to the long-term preservation of the jawbone.
We are often asked whether an implantation is possible at all, e.g. in the case of very small residual jaw bone or certain bone diseases. Since every human being is unique in his or her particularities, no general yes or no answer can be given.
We will be happy to discuss possible surgical options and alternatives with you in a personal consultation.
Painless dental implantation
During the actual implantation, after local elimination of pain, the gums are opened at the planned place in the row of teeth where the tooth to be replaced is missing and a precisely fitting canal is inserted into the jawbone into which the artificial tooth root fits perfectly. After closure with the finest suture material, the outpatient procedure is completed.
Now the implant must heal for 3-5 months in the bone and under the mucous membrane. During this time, a temporary dental prosthesis, previously made by the family dentist, is usually worn and regular check-ups are carried out.
After this time the so-called exposure takes place. During this procedure, the implant is exposed on the surface and the prosthesis can then be fixed. Since a dental implant carries exactly the tooth crown to be replaced, grinding of the neighboring teeth (as with conventional bridges) is not necessary.
