FAQS ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS
Who could benefit from dental implants?
Dental implants are suitable for patients who would like to replace missing teeth with enduring results. Implants allow us not only to achieve very natural results but also to completely restore the function of natural teeth. Masticatory force is again transmitted to the jaw, thereby stabilising the bone volume.
Implant treatments are usually also options for patients with reduced bone substance or teeth damaged by periodontitis. Firstly, Dr Dr Norman Koebe uses either endogenous or biosynthetic material to build up the bone. His years of experience in maxillofacial surgery allow him to perform even challenging jaw augmentation to the full satisfaction of the patient.
What do I need to consider before and after dental implants are inserted?
Before the implant treatment, it is important that your mouth is in a perfectly healthy condition. Dr Dr Norman Koebe will therefore perform a thorough preliminary examination before the actual implant procedure. He will also plan and discuss any preparatory treatment together with you.
You should discontinue any blood-thinning or anticoagulant medication at least 14 days before the procedure. This also includes some over-the-counter medication, such as aspirin and various flu medicines. If you have been instructed to take such medication, please discuss this with our specialist, Dr Koebe, during the preliminary discussion. He will advise you on which medications to consider as alternatives.
Once the implants have been inserted, you should wait until the local anaesthetic has worn off before attempting to eat or drink. We recommend avoiding nicotine and alcohol throughout the recovery phase as they could adversely affect the healing process. You should also temporarily refrain from eating very hot, cold, sour or spicy food.
You will be given further nutritional and aftercare instructions in person by Dr Koebe.
How are dental implants inserted?
The treatment starts with a comprehensive planning phase. We use state-of-the-art techniques and technologies, such as digital volume tomography (DVT), to help us determine the exact position of the implants. Dr Koebe will also discuss the risks with you in detail as well as the results you can expect from the treatment.
The implants are inserted in two stages. During the first stage of treatment, Dr Dr Norman Koebe inserts the implant into the jawbone. He makes a small incision in the gum and then creates an apposite opening in the jawbone. Then, he embeds the implant in this opening; this will later serve as the base for the ultimate dental implant. After that, Dr Koebe sutures the gum and fits the implant with a provisional placeholder. This is followed by a healing phase of about 3 to 6 months while the implant base beds in.
Once this healing phase is complete, the actual dentures are put in place in a the second procedure. Dr Dr Norman Koebe firstly makes a cast that is then used to create the actual denture. The denture is then firmly fixed to the implant. At that stage, the patient can use the denture just like natural teeth.
What do you mean by “hi-tech dental implants”?
At the KOEBE KLINIK, we apply state-of-the-art techniques and technologies to plan and design your dental implants. Using exact computer-assisted planning and three-dimensional volume tomography (DVT), we position the implants in the jawbone down to the millimetre.
We also work with state-of-the-art instruments during the implant procedure itself. Naturally, we only use high-quality products sourced from market-leading manufacturers for our implants. These implants have special surface structures, sometimes imbued with bone growth factors to activate and accelerate the integration and healing process.
Can I smoke after having a dental implant fitted?
Smoking can have a negative impact on implant integration and wound healing. We therefore recommend that you refrain from smoking for the duration of the treatment or limit your nicotine consumption to the absolute minimum. If at all possible, you should avoid smoking altogether during the healing phase.
When will I be able to return to work and sports?
Whether a dental implant will require period of rest and recovery depends on the extent of the procedure. If possible, a temporary prosthesis will be fitted to the implant during the healing phase.
Once the implant has been inserted, you should refrain from physical exertion for several days if possible. As a general rule, however, you should be able to continue with light activities, such as office work, as usual. You should avoid even light exercise for at least one week. You can return to more physically demanding sports after about 2 to 3 weeks.
During the preliminary discussion, Dr Dr Norman Koebe will discuss with you in person the recovery time you should expect in your specific case.
How durable are dental implants?
When properly looked after, dental implants can last for life. This requires practicing thorough oral hygiene. You should make sure to attend regular check-ups and report any issues immediately to an experienced dentist.
Other factors also have an effect on the durability of dental implants – for example, chronic diseases, smoking and taking certain medication can shorten their lifespan. Whether there are specific risk factors in your case and issues to watch out for once the implants are in place are issues you should discuss with Dr Koebe during the preliminary face-to-face discussion.
What are the risks associated with dental implants?
Having dental implants inserted entails the same surgical risks as any oral surgical procedure. In rare cases, patients can develop wound healing disorders, swelling or bleeding. We would be happy to prescribe you suitable painkillers if you experience any pain following the procedure.
At the KOEBE KLINIK, implant procedures are exclusively performed by Dr Dr Norman Koebe – so you can be sure you will always be in the best of hands. At the KOEBE KLINIK, we implement strict hygiene standards. This allows us to reduce the risk of complications to a minimum.
