One tooth and its root are missing.

A dental implant and ceramic crown are the most aesthetic way of filling the gap.

Grinding the neighbouring teeth is not necessary.

Two or more teeth are missing.

A fixed bridge attached to 2 dental implants ensures stability and an aesthetically and functionally convincing result.

Grinding the neighbouring teeth is not necessary.

All of the teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw.

a) Dental implants offer the stability to anchor a removable denture securely. The denture stays in place firmly in ordinary life and can be taken out of the mouth for cleaning.

b) The alternatives are implant-borne rows of teeth that are screwed in place, offering a maximally aesthetic appearance.

 

Missing single tooth

The implant takes over the function of the tooth root and transmits the chewing force from the tooth crown to the jaw bone. This natural stress keeps the jaw bone vital so that it does not atrophy. However, a new tooth is not only intended to fulfil its natural function but should not be distinguishable in appearance from the neighbouring teeth, especially in the front. An attractive treatment result is particularly important in these cases.

Fixed implant-borne teeth not only look like your own teeth, they also feel like them. The implant, crown and gums form a harmonious unit.

The dental implant replaces the lost tooth root and acts as a post for the implant crown. Grinding the neighbouring teeth is not necessary so healthy tooth substance is preserved.

Several missing teeth

In order to prevent bone loss and malposition of the teeth and jaw, a gap involving several teeth should be closed rapidly not only from the functional aspect but also from the medical aspect. The individual situation determines the number of implants used.

A major advantage of implant-borne bridges is that the healthy neighboring teeth do not have to be ground.

From the esthetic aspect, too, implant-borne bridges are a better alternative as they end optimally at the gums in most cases.

Completely toothless jaw

imageImplant dentistry offers removable prostheses and non-removable rows of teeth to restore completely toothless jaws.

The advantages of the two solutions compared to classical adhesive dentures speak for themselves:

  • Prostheses on implants offer secure hold in any situation.
  • The chewing forces are transmitted to the bone. This prevents bone atrophy and thus ensures optimal prosthesis fit in the long term.
  • With implant-anchored prostheses, there are no painful pressure points.
  • The palate remains free from prosthesis material. The sense of taste and thus enjoyment of eating are not impaired.

The most attractive-looking solution for toothless jaws is a row of teeth fixed with screws. It is fixed directly to the implants and usually ends harmoniously at the gums.

Replacement of all teeth with a nonremovable prosthesis fixed to several implants. Replacement of all teeth with a removable prosthesis fixed to bars. Replacement of all teeth with a removable prosthesis fixed to retentive anchors. The retentive anchors work like snap fasteners.

For removable dentures there are other methods of fixation such as magnets. Ask your dentist so that you can find out about the entire range of possibilities.
