IMPLANTS THE NEW WAY



IMPLANTS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS


Burow dental studio practises implant dentistry since 1996. We offer a minimally invasive procedure of implant mounting and a selection of three types of implants (Ankylos, ICX, mini implants). All implantology systems are made in Germany, out of pure high-quality titanium. Patients are individually examined by dr.sc. Helge Burow. Every patient will be approached with a personal solution for their dental issues, that will meet their needs and requirements. Examination and advice regarding implants are free of charge.

What is an implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of of titanium. Implants are surgically inserted into the jaw, where they heal over time and subsequently mimic the roots of the teeth. They are then suitable for prosthetics.
New diagnostic abilities of dental medicine allow solutions for all types of toothlessnes.

Advantages of implants

Implants offer multiple advantages:

– high stability of implants: their appearance and functions are equal to those of regular teeth
– implants do not require other teeth as support: they do not require the treatment of neighboring teeth (contrary to bridges)
– implants are favorable for the health of jaw and gums: they have an aesthetic function help in maintaining natural contours of the face

Will an implant spare neighbouring teeth?

Yes. Unlike regular bridge prosthetics, implants do notrequire preparation, filling or any kind of adaptation of the neighbouring teeth. Your whole chewing apparatus will function safely and naturally.

Are implants suitable for all patients?

Implants are suitable for nearly all patients. In case of sever illnesses like diabetes, leukemia, immune system disorders, osteoporosis or addiction to tobacco/alcohol/drugs – our doctors will advise you on an adequate solution.
Heavy smoker experience complications more frequently than non-smokers. Parodontal diseases like gingivitis and parodontitis require complete treatment prior to implatation.

If a patient is missing jaw (bone) structure due to inflammation, tooth extraction or trauma – it is usually necessary to perfomr surgical bone augmentation before of during implatation.

If a patient is missing bones due to inflammation, tooth extraction or various traumas, it usually necessary to perform surgical bone augmentation before or during the implant mounting, in order to replace the missing part of the bone.

How safe and how durable are implants?

95% of all implants are still intact after 10 years. Oral hygiene is essential for the long-lasting durability of implants. Proper oral hygiene is to be ensured by the patient, by regular cleaning of the oral cavity and regular dental checkups.

The patient should visit us at least two times a year to have the implant checked. This is the best way to detect and resolve potential issues at an early stage.

Why are implants made of titanium?

Titanium is a metal which is absolutely harmless for the human body. The procedure that follows implantation is osseointegration – connection forming between the jaw bone and the implant surface (with no immune reactions to the implant).

What is the procedure of implant mounting?

Our doctors will five you a diagnose after studying the digital 3D X-ray image. They will determing whether you need implants, and the position, size and length of your future implant.

What is the procedure of implant mounting?

Dentist will give you a diagnose after studying the digital 3D image. They will determine whether you need implants, and the position, size, and length of your implant. An implant mould will be created to suit your measurements.
Implants are inserted into the bone. Local anesthesia is used, and the procedure is painless.

Period of recovery usually lasts from 2 to 6 months, during which time the bone combines with the surface of the implant.
The final part of the procedure is the mounting of the prosthetic. The type of the prosthetic (fixed or mobile) is agreed upon before the beginning of the procedure.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure is painless due to local anesthesia. Mild swelling and discomfort usually follow the procedure but sibside after a few days.
Period of recovery usually lasts from 2 to 6 months. During that time the bone connects to the surface of the implant.

Will I be toothless while recovering from the procedure?

Not necessarily. The final part of the procedure is the mounting of the prosthetic. While waiting for the implant to heal and the final prosthetic to be manufactured – there are temporary prosthetics that can be worn.

Are there any dangers I need to be aware of?

Risks of implantation are not greater than risks accompanying any other dental surgical procedure. Small haemorrhages are possible due to the damage to blood vessels. Risk of nerve damage is diminished with careful planning.

Infection can lead to the loss of implant, but occurs very rarely.

The patient will receive instructions and advice on oral hygiene from an oral hygienist, who will clean the implant and perform regular examinations.
