Implants are partially covered by statutory health insurance. How high this share is depends on the respective health insurance company and benefits. In hardship cases, such as a low income, the statutory health insurance may cover the entire amount.
This restoration for edentulous jaws is a treatment procedure in which implants are placed at an angle in the posterior region. This approach facilitates optimal prosthetic support for a resin bridge, which can be fabricated and functional within hours of surgery. "All-on-4″ is based on Nobel Biocareinnovative Immediate Function™ technique.
Nobel Guide for use in surgical procedures aiming at a low complication healing process has been developed by Nobel Biocare. The Nobel Guide® system is based on largely computer-assisted planning of the surgical procedure and the fabrication of the dental prosthesis. For this purpose, the position of the implants is determined virtually on the screen on the basis of two special X-ray images - the computer tomograms. This planning is precisely transferred to the jawbone with the help of a custom-made template. The advantage of this surgical method is also that opening the gums is largely unnecessary.
The result of such a minimally invasive procedure is less discomfort after the operation. As a consistent further development, the Cad/Cam fabrication of the later tooth replacement already takes place before the operation with the help of the Procera® technique.
As an alternative, you can also opt for ceramic implants. You can read about the advantages and possible risks in this article.
Because dental implants are fixed directly into the jawbone through a surgical procedure, they are not suitable for everyone. The first requirement is that bone growth must be complete. This means that dental implants are generally unsuitable for children and adolescents. But adults also need to have a stable state of health before they can consider implants. You should not use dental implants if you:
If you are unsure whether dental implants are safe for you, you can make an appointment for a no-obligation consultation with us at Zahnzentrum Mitte. After the examination, we will advise you in detail about possible risks and which treatment options are suitable for you.
One disadvantage that bridges have is that the adjacent teeth have to be ground down to fix the bridge. Because the bridge is not anchored in the bone where it can be held, the adjacent teeth have to be ground down to hold it in place.
You also need to maintain good oral hygiene after the bridge is in place. Food residues and bacteria can collect between the bridge and the gums. This can easily lead to infections and inflammations.
It is also possible that the prosthesis does not fit properly and thus causes an insecure feeling when eating.
Bridges are usually half covered by statutory health insurance. There is also the possibility of full cost coverage in cases of hardship. If you are not sure which dental prosthesis is suitable for you, you can make an appointment for a consultation with us. We will be happy to advise you and help you make the best decision for your teeth.
