In our dental practice "My Dentist Wiesbaden" Dr. Müller is our specialist for implantology and periodontology.
During your first appointment in our dental practice your implantologist asks you about your medical history. Of course your current health problems are taken into account too. With regard to implantations respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are of special interest. The state of blood clotting, medication, incompatibilities or allergies are clarified and documented. (Just have a look at our medical history form).
After the first consulting your implantologist starts with the dental diagnostics. At first Dr. Müller examines the oral cavity especially decayed or infected teeth and inflammed gums. He also looks for malpositioned teeth and jaw anomalies which can cause improper loadíng. These facts are known to minimize the prospect of success concerning implantations.
Apart from taking panoramic radiographs we use three-dimensional digital volume tomography (DVT). It is known to cause very low levels of radiation and shows an excellent image accuracy. DVT makes it possible to examine the anatomic structures beside the implantposition in detail. Furthermore the implantologist can measure the existing jaw bone exactly, so that the amount of bone material can be estimated precisely. With the aid of modern computer programs the optimal position of the implant and the subsequent form of the crown can be simulated.
After sufficient planning and diagnostics the implantation can be performed. Our patient information gives you an overview of proper behaviour before and after the surgery.
In our dental practice "My Dentist Wiesbaden" implantations are performed with modern techniques and surgical methods. This enables us to work on a high level of precision which enhances the predictability of the results.
In the cause of the implantation which is usually performed under local anesthesia your implantologist opens the gingiva with a small incision and the drilling of the implant channel takes place. The implants, which are formed like screws, are then anchored into the bone in the desired position. After wound care a healing period of several months is recommended so that the implant can grow securely into the jaw bone.
Of course you can "sleep through" all surgical procedures with the help of our anesthesiologist Dr. Angela Hechler.
After three to six months the implantologist makes a small incision into the gingiva above the implant. Then he fixes the abutment to the implant which will carry the prostheses later on. Thereafter an impression of your jaw will be taken. This impression forms the template for fabrication of your crown or bridge. If necessary you get provisional dentures for an interim period. At last the final prostheses is placed on the implants.
