Science & Research - Research priorities

In order to provide you with even better service in the future, we are continuously working on improving the skills and expertise of our doctors and the clinic in the discipline of maxilla-facial surgery.

Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. A dental implant functions the same way as the patients’ own root, since it directly fuses with the bone. Implants anchor dentures, e.g. bridges, crowns or removable dentures securely to the bone.

Social projects

The clinic supports social and humanitarian projects in addition to their medical and scientific activity. For more details, see science and research.

Mini implants
In cases where there is not enough bone structure available, complicated surgical procedures to rebuilding bone structure can sometimes be avoided by utilizing so called mini implants.
Consultation & Treatment Planning
The first step in implant treatment is the diagnosis and detailed consultation with your dentist to determine if an implant is feasible.
Surgery
General anesthesia is usually recommended for complicated implantations (with or without bone augmentation). Also, for very anxious patients or children, general anesthesia is often helpful.
Opening of the gums
After opening the gums at the planned implant site, the bone will be prepared for the planned implant size using a special water-cooled. With proper anesthetics the drilling will be completely pain free, only the vibration of the drill is noticeable.
Bone substitute material
If at time of diagnosis, it was determined that there isn’t enough bone available to anchor any implants, the first step would be an augmentation (bone graft). There are various methods for bone augmentation, which widely differ in effort,...
Question mark
The durability of implants has been researched  in long-term studies internationally for 30 years. The average 10-year success rates are over 95%. The results so far have shown, that with proper oral hygiene and regular professional supervision,...
Osteodistraktion
Osteodistraction (bone and soft tissue stretching) is a method of extending or lengthening of bone, which is based on the self-healing powers of the human body. Two previously severed pieces of bone, are slowly pulled apart step by step, which is...
Middle-aged man
On special request, patients can be provided with so-called temporary implants (TempImplants ®) in order to bridge the time until they receive their real implants.
