How do you implant your teeth

The idea is fascinating: wherever natural teeth - for whatever reason - are no longer available, they are simply replaced by fixed artificial teeth. Implants have significantly expanded the range of dental treatment options and now offer the patient a stable, long-lasting and comfortable dental prosthesis. Implants can be used to close gaps in teeth, replace partial dentures with implant-supported bridges, and firmly anchor full dentures in the jawbone, which often means an enormous improvement in the quality of life for patients. The use of implants also offers some advantages where conventional restorations with bridges and prostheses can also be expected to produce good results:

Implants inhibit bone loss

Similar to muscles that recede when not in use, the jawbone also shrinks when it is not stressed, e.g. B. by missing teeth. Implants direct the chewing pressure directly into the jaw and thus inhibit bone loss.

Firm bite feel / secure hold

Especially in oral situations that can no longer be fitted with fixed dentures, implants offer the possibility of firmly anchoring the third teeth again. That creates a new quality of life.

Protection of healthy, natural teeth

In contrast to bridges, there is no need to grind neighboring teeth with implants. In composite bridges with natural teeth, implants can serve as an additional pillar and relieve your own teeth.
