Dental implants – the esthetic and long term solution for greater well being

If you have tooth loss or an ill-fitting denture, your dentist will present you with a tailored treatment concept after conducting a detailed preliminary examination. Dental implants are often the ideal solution for the secure and reliable anchorage of individual crowns, bridges or dentures. Depending on your individual situation and needs, your dentist will explain to you the pros and cons of the various solutions for a functional and esthetic dental restoration. You will then decide together what is the best restoration for you.

As a rule, dental implants are inserted in the jaw in an outpatient procedure under local anesthetic. To ensure high stability when wearing the denture, your dentist will always evaluate the healing time on a patient-by-patient basis. After a few weeks or months, an implant-supported restoration, such as a crown or a bridge, is placed on the implant.

Ingenious side effect of a dental implant

Once the bone has grown around the implant and is firmly anchored in the jaw, it trains the jawbone. When you chew, the dental implants transmit physiological stimuli to the bone through the dental implants – just like a natural tooth.

This is a critical factor for preserving the jawbone. After an individual consultation, many patients opt for dental implants.

Implant treatment means teamwork

A successful result and perfect dental esthetics can only be achieved in a team made up of the patient, the dentist and the dental technician.

If your dentist does not perform implantations, he or she will consult a specialist dentist, oral surgeon, or orthodontic surgeon. Together, they will discuss a treatment plan in detail and you will then be referred for the implant placement. It is also helpful to incorporate the dental technician early on to achieve an esthetic and optimal treatment outcome. The dental technician adjusts the crown or bridge to the corresponding condition of your mouth. When doing so, the dental technician pays particular attention to the function, esthetics and phonetics of the patient. The shape, color, luminescence and opacity are carefully designed so that the dental restoration looks as natural as possible.

This complex process has an impact on the esthetics of the treatment outcome. After a healing phase lasting several months, the high‑quality and customized dental restoration is inserted.

A dental implant has lasting value

Dental implants are a long‑term investment in your health as well as your quality of life. When well cared for, implants can last a lifetime. They are part of you and perform their duty undetected, effectively and reliably 365 days of the year. Dental implants restore chewing function fully. Dental implants add to the preservation of the jawbone, which would otherwise degenerate without an implant.

Implants are the only “true” and “complete” dental restoration

The cost of dental implants is based on the cost of materials along with the fees for surgery, dentistry and the services of the dental technician. It will depend on how complicated and extensive the planned implant restoration is. Measured by wear over a lifetime, an implant restoration is often no more expensive than everyday items, such as a daily newspaper.

The boost to your quality of life and the preservation of facial structures achieved by dental implants are of lasting value. Compare the costs and the long‑term benefits with alternatives.

Natural and biocompatible

Ceramic implants – the natural, esthetic solution

Along with the standard treatment with titanium implants, this therapeutic option now includes white zirconium dioxide implants, which are better known as ceramic implants.

The choice of ceramic implant can be emotional or due to a desire for beautiful white teeth. It may also be due to a titanium intolerance. A blood test can determine whether this is the case. For certain indications, this treatment option can be a very good and scientifically based alternative.

Crowns and bridges made from white zirconium oxide have been in use for many years, for medical but primarily for esthetic reasons. Zirconium oxide is chemically neutral and is characterized by extreme stability and biocompatibility. Initially, one-piece implants were produced. This means that the implant and the abutment formed a single piece. The trend now is toward two-piece ceramic implants that can heal below the gums without loading. The CERALOG® Implant from Camlog, which offers a high degree of freedom in prosthetics and has successfully been in use since 2013, is one such ceramic implant.
