Titanium tooth implants
Titanium implants are currently definitively the best and most sensitive treatment option in the physiological replacement of existing teeth. Thanks, on the one hand, to the excellent fit of their components, scientifically and technically finished surfaces and, on the other hand, contributable to their bacteria-proof and bacteria-resistant attributes. Implants used nowadays are predominantly made of titanium as this material is particularly tissue-friendly (bio-compatible). The attribute of titanium, on contact with air, water and body fluids to form a protective oxide layer on the surface, appears to be the mechanism for an especially good compatibility. The reaction of the body is so natural that the bone grows directly on/onto the implant and accepts the tooth implant as part of the body. This process is described in professional literature as osseointegration.
The course of treatment in implant therapy
A detailed diagnosis and plan of treatment at our surgery in 1010 Vienna are both necessary to ensure the successful treatment of the patient. Only on the basis of an, according to the individual situation more or less in-depth, examination and diagnosis can concrete treatment steps be planned and discussed. In order to avoid risks, the general medical situation and previous illnesses are recorded in the case history. Before the routine surgical operation, the natural teeth are rehabilitated/sanitised and any gum diseases treated. As it is a small surgical intervention, a local anaesthetic suffices for pain-free treatment. After the introduction and a healing phase for the artificial root, this becomes a strong and extremely stress-resistant whole with the surrounding jawbone. After a few days we supply your new tooth implant with highly aesthetic dentures which have been prepared by our dental technician to suit the individual requirements of the patient.
The long-term success of an implant therapy is determined by many factors. Bone density and bone, implant material and design all have a part to play, as does professional oral hygiene (prophylaxis). High-tech surface materials open up new possibilities in treatment and can reduce the time of the healing process. These new materials offer high mechanical load-bearing capacity and osteoconductivity (bone formation, support of bone growth).
In our dental heath practice 1010 Wien we exclusively use medical products made by the Swiss company STRAUMANN.
Depending on the task at hand and individual requirements, we will work together to find the optimal solution. Further focal points of specialisation at our Viennese practice are aesthetic dental care, paradontology and endontology as well as orthodontics (braces for adults).
