Digital implant planning

Reliable implant planning with 3D X-rays

Digital volume tomography
Digital volume tomography is revolutionizing modern dentistry. It combines the advantages of dental panoramic imaging with the benefits of computer tomography.

Spatial imaging with less radiation exposure
It enables a 3-dimensional spatial assessment of all anatomical structures. Much sharper images are obtained than with a conventional CT scan and with significantly less radiation exposure!

 

 

Safety through diagnostics
Reliable implant planning thanks to knowledge of the spatial relationships of all neighboring structures. The exact position of the mandibular nerve can be determined.
In implantology, this method can be used to reliably determine the amount of bone available and the best position for the implant, and the operation can be planned predictably. In this way, the subsequent dental prosthesis can be planned in advance.
Complete tooth replacement and implant planning from the very first minute.

Cost transparency
Thanks to predictive implant and denture planning based on three-dimensional X-ray evaluation and surgical planning.

 

Ceramic implants – Cicron implants

Zirconia ceramic implants

The biological implant with the best possible esthetics and compatibility
The Swiss brand product Patent

The solution for esthetically demanding and sensitive patients. What solution does the new “Patent (formerly ZV3 – Zirkon Vision) ceramic implant” offer?
Dr. Johan Feith, a recognized specialist implantologist, materials scientist and developer, has been dealing with the well-known problems of conventional titanium implants for 30 years. In collaboration with the universities of Düsseldorf, Amsterdam and Groningen, among others, Dr. Feith has developed solutions that are now successfully used thousands of times in practice in the ceramic implant patent product.

The advantages of zirconia ceramic implants come into play:

  • Gentler treatment procedure: The healing phase is made easier! A second operation to expose the implants after the implant has healed in the bone is no longer necessary.
  • The aesthetic shortcomings that patients often complain about due to gray edges around implant crowns are a thing of the past.
  • The Patent Zirconia Ceramic System is the only manufacturer in the world to offer an individual design of implants according to your personal anatomical conditions.

This is the basis for meeting high cosmetic demands and optimum compatibility.

Our goal. Your smile.

Have you been missing out on your radiant smile for far too long? It’s time to change that: with the most modern, gentle and individual procedure currently available in the field of dental implantology.

Our all-ceramic zirconia implants, manufactured and patented in Germany, meet the highest standards of safety, quality and comfort.
The unsurpassed stability of our all-ceramic implants, the significantly lower treatment costs and the absolutely natural-looking end result are just some of the many advantages that will convince you. And every day for years and years to come.

Zirconia ceramic implants of the
latest generation

Patent implants point the way forward

Some are convinced by titanium implants. Others are convinced by conventional ceramic implants. In fact, both implants have their advantages and disadvantages. The patented patent implants combine only the best properties of both materials. And this results in a new, revolutionary implant that you will neither feel nor recognize as such.

  • The only individually milled implant system adapted to the patient’s
    to the anatomical conditions of the patient.
  • Completely metal-free, as zirconium ceramic without any added aluminum
  • No allergies and intolerances
  • Fast ingrowth due to unique surface structure
  • Extremely high strength of the material
  • Cosmetically indistinguishable from the real tooth
  • No dark gum discoloration or grey edges in the area of the implant crowns, as is often the case with titanium implants
  • Fewer treatment steps, no need for a second operation to expose the implants

Titanium implants

Titanium implants – But safe!

Titanium is a well-tolerated material for many patients as, unlike other metals, genuine allergies to titanium are extremely rare. However, titanium oxide particles can detach from the surface of the implant and be deposited in the surrounding tissue. These particles, which are only a few micrometers in size, are unproblematic for the majority of patients as the immune system ignores them. However, some patients react to these titanium oxide particles with an inflammatory reaction. In these patients, the risk of implant-associated inflammation and thus implant loss is increased.

Laboratory diagnostics to rule out titanium incompatibilities

A modern laboratory test can now be used to test your blood cells’ readiness to react to titanium oxide particles. In this test, known as the titanium stimulation test, your blood cells are brought into contact with titanium oxide particles in the laboratory. The amount of inflammation-promoting messenger substances (cytokines) produced is then measured. Normally, immune cells produce no or only small amounts of cytokines on contact with titanium oxide particles. However, in people who react with an increased release of messenger substances, the risk of a titanium-associated immune response, including implant loss, is increased.

What happens in the event of an abnormal test result?

Not every abnormal finding means that titanium implants cannot be used. Dr. Wenz will advise you on this.
However, there are now alternatives to titanium, such as ceramic implants.
It is important to be aware of the increased risk so that you can react to it at an early stage before implantation and either choose an alternative implant system or minimize other risk factors.

 

Bone augmentation

Bone augmentation / sinus lift

Safety and faster results with autologous bone
There are many causes that can lead to a loss of jawbone. These include periodontal disease, accidents, poorly fitting dentures, etc.

The result: an insufficient bony implant site. If implants are to be implanted nevertheless, bone must be built up or a sufficiently strong implant site created. Otherwise, the life of the implant will be shortened or it will not be possible to place an implant at all. Sinus lift is a special surgical method used in oral surgery to thicken the bony floor of the maxillary sinus (maxillary sinus). The sinus lift is one of several procedures for jaw augmentation.

Jaw augmentation in implantology – a standard procedure for us every day

In the past, creating sufficient bone was a time-consuming process, as the missing bone was taken from the pelvis, the skull or the knee and transplanted to the appropriate location.

Thanks to highly specialized minimally invasive surgical techniques, it is now possible to manage with far less bone material from the lower jaw.

 

Stem cell therapy

Stem cell therapy PRP
(Platelet Rich Plasma)

Bone formation through autologous blood enrichment!
Human blood has many functions in the human body. For example, it contains numerous factors that are important for wound healing. Platelets play a special role in this. They are equipped with an abundance of healing and growth factors for the processes of repair and regeneration.

Bone augmentation – a standard daily procedure for us
A procedure has been developed in the USA that utilizes this ability of platelets to heal wounds. The PRP procedure (Platelet Rich Plasma “PRP”= thrombocyte-rich asma) utilizes the ability of human blood to heal wounds. With PRP, platelets are extracted from the patient’s blood in concentrated form using a special centrifugation process. The concentrate contains an average of ten times more platelets than the same amount of “normal” blood. Before the implants are inserted, they are moistened with the plasma concentrate.
In addition to shortened and improved healing, the PRP method also has the advantage that the possible side effects of surgery (pain, swelling) are significantly reduced.

Low-risk and safe procedure

PRP can also be used for bone augmentation. If poor bone quality (e.g. osteoporosis) or insufficient bone supply (e.g. in the maxillary sinus) requires bone augmentation prior to surgery, this can be carried out using the PRP procedure and synthetically produced bone augmentation materials. The removal of autologous bone from other regions (e.g. hip) is therefore unnecessary. The patient is spared a further surgical procedure.

PRP is a low-risk and safe procedure. As a rule, blood sampling does not represent any significant stress. Only components of the patient’s own blood are used.

As the statutory health insurance companies only pay for “sufficient and economical care”, the costs for treatment with PRP are not covered, so that the PRP procedure is a private investment in your own health, which strengthens your own natural healing power and thus achieves faster and better healing results.

 

BTM / Bone metabolism

Most patients want fixed teeth – implants – from the age of 40. Physiologically, however, the quantity and quality of the jawbone decreases from the age of 40. This makes it all the more important to test the condition of the bone bed using well-known BTM and to optimize it if necessary.
Bone is a metabolically active tissue and is subject to continuous remodeling, which includes bone resorption and formation. Bone mass depends on the balance between resorption and formation. The cells responsible for resorption and formation are osteoclasts and osteoblasts respectively. Numerous complex systemic and local factors regulate the function of these cell types through mechanisms that are closely linked.

Bone remodeling takes place at the bone surface and in a typical remodeling cycle, resorption takes 7-10 days, while formation takes 2-3 months. Although cancellous bone makes up only 20% of bone mass, it accounts for 80% of the bone surface and is therefore more metabolically active and undergoes more rapid remodeling. Every year, 25 % of the cancellous bone and 2-3 % of the compact bone are remodeled.

Biochemical bone metabolism markers (BTM) reflect the process of remodeling and are therefore decisive for the success rate of dental operations such as tooth removal, bone augmentation and fixed dental prostheses using implants.

The most important bone metabolism markers include:

1) Bone spec. alk. phosphatase
2) Osteocalcin
3) P1NP
4) Vitamin D3
5) CTX
6) DPD/PYD
