Modern implantology is an important part of dental medicine. It helps to keep the tooth system intact for a long period of time which increases the patient's own well-being.
The development of implantology resulted in a rich palette of different implant types and implantation methods which are tailored to the patient's individual requirements. Implant materials as well as implantation methods have been optimized since then. Countless scientific studies have confirmed the implants' unimpeded success and duration. The German Association for Dental, Oral and Orthodontic Health (DGZMK)has confirmed the recognition of oral implantology in 1982.
In our dental practice Zahnärzte am Kurhaus in Wiesbaden we have been carrying out implantations since 1990 - nowadays our dentists can provide proof of their professional experienceof many years.
The term to implant means to insert. After the loss of teeth your implantologist inserts an artificial tooth root into your jaw bone which is a substitute for the natural tooth root and will receive a fixed restoration during the implantological treatment period.
The implantologists in Wiesbaden prefer rotationally symmetrical implant types. Titanium is recognised as the most important material for dental implants. In surgery titanium has been prevalent for a long time as a neutral material for implants, since it is an unalloyed metal which causes no defensive reaction of the body. During the healing process the implant's natural and stable ingrowth into the jaw bone takes place.
The huge amount of different implant types enables the specialists of implantology in Wiesbaden to find individual solutions for their patients. Implants offer a stable basis for any kind of prostheses. After the loss of a single tooth your implantologist can replace it with a root implant carrying a crown. Furthermore implants give excellent support for prosthetic restorations like bridges and removable dentures. Even orthodontists use implants in order to move teeth in the right direction and improve tooth position.
The continuous development of bone surgery to reconstruct atrophied jaw bone has led to the possibility of carrying out implantations after bone reconstruction.
Modern technologies also support the positive development of implantations. With regard to modern imaging methods the digital volume tomography has prevailed. Anatomic structures at the implant site are clearly visible to the implantologist and can be analysed efficiently. Furthermore the implantologist can use the data to simulate the implantation virtually which helps to increase safeguarding and predictability of the expected results.
Implant-supported teeth optimize your chewing comfort and articulation, furthermore they enhance your pleasant and healthy appearance. These dentures are nearly similar in function and esthetics to your natural teeth.
