What exactly is an implant?

It is a type of titanium screw that is installed in the upper or lower jaw (= implantation) and replaces the missing tooth or its root. The cells of the bone tissue to grow gradually surrounded around the surface of the implant, and cover this completely, so that a firm connection between implant and bone formed (osseointegration). By using an implant avoids the abrasion of adjacent healthy teeth. Implants allow the placement of crowns or bridges, and the unstable attachment of prostheses. They have a cylindrical shape, a diameter of 3,5-7 mm and a length of 8-17 mm.

To whom can an implant be used?

It is desirable for the patient in good general condition. The use of an implant will be before the end of the growth phase or the 16th Age is not recommended – there is no upward age limit. Once again, the general health of the essential role. If the health of the removal of teeth allowed, then there is nothing against the insertion of surgical implants. Relative contraindications are: poor oral hygiene, psychiatric disorders, smoking, hypertension, diabetes derailed, hemophiliacs (with regard to blood clotting disorders), heart attack, kidney disease, trigeminal neuralgia, multiple sclerosis and other chronic diseases.

How long does an implant?

The expected lifespan of an implant is 5-20 years depending on various factors such as inter alia (Lack of) hygiene conditions, diseases, (bad) habits, … Implants have no natural protection as the original teeth, which are connected by the surrounding gums and the so-called ligament (= chain) fixed to the jawbone. Therefore, a thorough hygiene is particularly important so that form around the implant no deposits or bacteria can collect.

Is there a possibility of rejection?

Implants are made of titanium, to which there is no rejection. It is only possible to implant a falling out within the first month after surgery – due unbeispielhaftes surgical procedure or due to insufficient bone density. The success in implant dentistry at our practice is about 99%.

How much cost an implant?

An implant with attachment will cost 750 euros. The dentures are prepared to be charged separately, depending on the intended and previously discussed jointly manufacture. A crown for example, costs, depending on the material used, in addition to the 250-350 euro.

What material are implants made of?

Implants ANKYLOS are made of pure surgical titanium. The material has proven to be so suitable for the purpose that by now 99 percent of all dental implant systems use titanium. It is extremely stable and very compatible to the body. Titanium also becomes fully integrated into the bone tissue. The silvery-gray color of titanium is also not a disadvantage, because implants – just like the natural root of the tooth – are invisible inside in the jawbone.

Are there different qualities of implants?

Like any other product implants are different in quality. Your implantologist can give you detailed advice on implant quality. Don’t forget to ask about long-term success rates. Also ask about the long-term availability of replacement parts in case your denture ever needs to be repaired.

Why can I trust ANKYLOS?

Implants ANKYLOS are German quality products that are the result of decades of research, development and documented clinical experience. The are manufactured with precision machinery and packaged under cleanroom conditions. The entire product chain starting from purchase of the raw materials is subject to rigid certified quality standards.  Our range of products includes three systems with differently shaped implants in various sizes and lengths, which means that the implantologist can select the exact solution for your particular situation. All implants are pure surgical titanium and have a unique microstructured titanium oxide surface, which actively supports the bone healing processes. The highly developed surface properties enable bone cells to be directly deposited on the implant and the new bone. Implants ANKYLOS provide the best conditions for optimum healing and permanent stability. ANKYLOS systems also offer highly esthetic solutions for crowns, bridges and prostheses for every requirement and for every initial situation.

Can implants also be placed immediately after extraction of teeth?

Yes, this is referred to as immediate implant placement. The implant is placed in the fresh wound immediately after extraction of a tooth [do not confuse this with immediate loading of implants.

When could bone remodeling be necessary?

If teeth and the associated chewing load in the jaw are absent for an extended period, the bone gradually atrophies. If the bone structure is weakened or thin to the extent that there is little or nothing to hold an implant in place, bone remodeling may be necessary. The bone tissue is restored as atraumatically as possible with bone from another part of the body or bone replacement material. The remodeling material is layered directly on the bone and is gradually converted to resistant bone tissue by the body. The bone can be widened or increased in height by this method. At the back of the upper jaw the bone is usually increased in height by a sinus lift. This prevents the situation where part of the implant extends into the maxillary sinus. It is often possible to carry out the bone remodeling at the same time as the implant placement. However, in other cases a separate outpatient procedure may be required.
