Implants are artificial tooth roots that can take over the biological function of natural teeth. They have a load-bearing capacity comparable to the natural tooth and good hold.

Implants as a solid foundation for your dentures

  • Implants have been used successfully for more than six decades to secure crowns, bridges and dentures in the jawbone. This proven method not only contributes to the esthetic restoration of your smile, but also has the advantage of preventing the bone loss that often occurs after the loss of teeth. Implants not only give you a functional and aesthetically pleasing result, but also long-term stability and health for your teeth.
  • Implants preserve the natural gum structure and thus help to maintain a harmonious and aesthetic appearance. In contrast, conventional bridges can deteriorate in appearance over time due to bone loss and gum recession. With implants, you can preserve your natural smile and enjoy a long-term aesthetic solution.

Preserving natural beauty: Implants for a harmonious appearance Requirements for implantation

  • General medical aspects: Suitability for implants may be limited by serious underlying diseases. These include blood clotting disorders, autoimmune diseases, metabolic diseases and diseases that require long-term medication.
  • Dental requirements: Excellent oral hygiene and a healthy set of teeth are fundamental requirements for the use of implants. Sufficient bone mass is also of crucial importance. If the bone is too thin, bone grafting may be necessary to ensure successful anchoring of the implants.

Treatment process

  • Planning: Implant placement requires careful impressions, X-rays and a thorough examination of the oral cavity. Planning often takes place in close cooperation with the Department of Prosthodontics.
  • Implantation: The actual procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia. After preparation of the jawbone, the implants are precisely placed.
  • Healing phase: During this 4-6 months, patients wear a temporary denture. After the healing phase, the final denture is fitted.

Possible complications

  • Injuries: During implantation, there is a risk of injury to the mandible or the floor of the nose. As a rule, these injuries heal.
  • Postoperative bleeding and wound healing problems: As with any surgery, post-operative bleeding and wound healing problems may occur, but are rare.
  • Implant loss: In very rare cases, it can lead to inflammation that requires the removal of implants.

Rules of conduct for patients with dental implants

  • Abstaining from coffee, tea, alcohol, cigarettes, and strenuous activity on the day of surgery and after.
  • Protection of the implants during the first months to ensure a successful healing process.


  • Regular and thorough oral hygiene is crucial for long-term success. Additional aids such as dental floss and interdental brushes should be used.
  • Regular checks every 6-12 months are strongly recommended.

Prospects of success

  • After 10 years, over 90% of implants in the mandible and about 80-85% in the maxilla are functional. Addictive diseases and heavy smoking can influence the long-term success.

Specialized indication classes

  • Implants are placed in specialized indication classes as needed to achieve the best success. The cooperation between our department and your dentist enables individual treatment plans. Even difficult cases, such as bone loss due to accidents or tumor diseases, can be successfully treated with implants.
