Dental implant – good to know

There are many questions about dental implants. We discover this each day in our dental practices in Berlin-Adlershof and Berlin-Karlshorst. This is why we have put together all the essential information about dental implants and implantology on this website.

And we can understand the need for comprehensive advice. At the end of the day, the subject of dental implants may become current for every one of us, sooner or later. Because over the course of our lives, almost everyone loses a tooth, or even several teeth – due to dental diseases such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, or due to a tooth injury.

The dental gaps which are created here limit the quality of life of the affected person, sometimes even in a severe manner. And it isn’t just the appearance which plays a role here. Also when eating and talking, dental gaps frequently lead to difficulties.
In addition, if a dental gap is uncared for, the jawbone will gradually recede. As a consequence, this can lead to tooth migration, elongation of the opposing teeth and incorrect loading.

Fitting an implant after a tooth injury

tooth implants Berlin in Adlershof und Karlshorst - Ihr Implantologe Carsten ÖztanThis is why we recommend replacing a missing tooth as quickly as possible. Here, the implant-supported tooth replacement is not just the firm, long-term alternative to a conventional removable denture. Tooth implants can replace the natural tooth almost perfectly, in both appearance and function. This means that with tooth implants, you can smile, talk and bite firmly again without a care.

Strictly speaking, the concept of a tooth implant does not describe the tooth replacement, but only an artificial tooth root. This tooth root implant is screwed firmly into the jawbone and crowned once this has healed. After this, the implant-supported tooth replacement should not be distinguishable from the natural teeth, either by yourself or by other people.

Implantology is one of the most methodically and technically highly developed areas in dentistry today. At the end of the day, sophisticated procedures and the latest technology allow the operations to be carried out in a gentle and extremely precise manner.
At Zahnkultur Berlin, we use 3D guided implantology, for example. With this modern form of inserting tooth implants, the space available in the jaw is used in an optimal manner, as the operation can be planned precisely in advance.
For the insertion of the tooth implant, your dentist at Zahnkultur Berlin will carry out precise calculations at the computer based on your CT and DVT data. In this way, each anatomical detail can be incorporated into the plan. This precise data can be used to create a surgical template which allows the pinpoint placement of the implants. This saves time during the actual operation, allows us to be gentle, and we can achieve ideal aesthetic results.

Thanks to our own laboratory in the practice, we can work in a particularly cost-conscious manner. For example, our prices for more extensive care definitely withstand those of Hungarian tooth implant clinics.
Would you like to learn even more about tooth implants and our implantology  practices? Then have a closer look here or make a consultation appointment directly with us. If you already have a cost estimate from another practice, we would also be happy to prepare an alternative quotation.

The practice owner, Carsten Öztan, and his team are delighted about your interest and are looking forward to your visit!

Kind regards Carsten-Can Öztan

Structure of a tooth implant

tooth implant berlin - crown (superstructure)

Implant crown (superstructure)

Zahnimplantate in Karlshorst Aufbau 1 The implant crown or superstructure is the visible part of the implant-supported tooth replacement, meaning the crown, bridge or dentures fastened to the implant structure. There are two bonding processes for this – the firm cementing onto the implant structure and screwing onto the implant structure. At Zahnkultur Berlin, we use both processes and select the right method depending on the individual circumstances.

Implant structure (abutment)

Implant structure (abutment) in berlin adlershof & karlshorst The implant structure, or abutment, is the connection between the implant body, meaning the artificial tooth root, and the implant crown. It is screwed tightly with the implant body and mostly consists of titanium, ceramic or a newer material such as zirconium oxide. Finally, the tooth replacement is fastened to the abutment and thus is visible as the actual tooth in the form of a crown, bridge or even dentures.

 

Implantatkörper – Implantat setzen in Karlshorst

Implant body (tooth implant)

Implant body (tooth implant) in Berlin The implant body describes the actual tooth implant and forms the foundation of the firm tooth replacement as an artificial tooth root. At the top end, you can mostly see threads. The second part of the implant, the implant structure, can then be fastened onto these. Depending on the type of implant, we differentiate between screw-shaped or cylinder-shaped implant bodies and hollow and solid implants. At Zahnkultur Berlin, we use these accordingly based on the individual case. Pure titanium is normally used as the material for implant bodies thanks to its good level of compatibility.


Tooth implant not possible?! – With bone construction, it often does work.

For some patients, the jawbones have already receded too much or are too badly damaged, meaning that an immediate implantation is not possible. In these cases, many people affected hear that their case is generally hopeless. We recommend obtaining a second opinion from an experienced implantological practice after hearing statements like this.

It is true that jawbones which are too thin and too damaged cannot hold a tooth implant. But it is usually possible to reconstruct jawbones and thus stabilise them for tooth implantation.
At Zahnkultur Berlin, we use various procedures for this, depending on the situation.

Careful bone construction using your own bone

During jawbone construction, we build the jawbone back up in terms of height and width, for example, using your own bone. For this, we remove bone from the mouth area or other areas of the body using especially sensitive ultrasound instruments, so-called piezoelectric devices. The pressureless, selective and extremely precise work of the piezoelectric device does practically no damage to the surrounding tissue.

The bones removed in this way are modelled accordingly and transplanted into the jaw. When everything goes as planned, the bone transplant will have grown together after just a few weeks. In this way, for example, the tooth implant could can be set after around three months.

In cases where the bottom of the upper jaw has already reduced to a great extent, we have achieved very good results with the so-called sinus-lift method. This is a procedure which specifically raises the bottom of the maxillary sinus. Your own bone is also transplanted for this procedure.

We can offer you a personal consultation

If you previously considered yourself to be a “hopeless case”, feel free to come for a consultation discussion in one of our practices in Adlershof or Karlshorst. We will assess your case individually and are happy to show you the possible options of bone construction.

About Zahnkultur Berlin

The joint dental practice Zahnkultur Berlin was founded in 2010 with the first practice in Berlin-Adlershof. Shortly after, the Karlshorst location was started up. Since then, the team, led by the owner, founder and dentist, Carsten-Can, has continued to grow. Now, around 40 dentists offer the patients in Adlershof and Karlshorst almost all disciplines of modern dentistry.

Trust is important. This is why each of our patients is treated by a specific dentist. However, for special requirements, a corresponding specialist in our practice may be called in to work alongside the regular dentist. With this concept, a close, holistic treatment can be realised and, not least, one based on trust.

Highly qualified and motivated

Another essential feature of our practice concept is the continual further training and qualification measures for our dentist and practice teams. Accordingly, our employees regularly take part in workshops, training courses and other specialist qualification measures. In this way, we ensure that our patients can always be treated according to the latest scientific knowledge and standards.

Our dentist practices were equipped in such a way that we can practise dental care perfectly in every respect. However, at the same time, you should also feel at home. From this point of view, the reception and waiting areas and treatment rooms have been decorated in a modern, open and bright manner. So that absolutely everyone – including our patients with disabilities, seniors with walking aids, parents with prams and pushchairs etc. – can move unrestricted in our practices, they are accessible by wheelchair and all our rooms fitted to be completely barrier free and suitable for people with additional needs.

tooth implants in Adlershof und Karlshorst For the complete dental care of our patients using the latest in scientific know-how, we can use diverse technologies, such as digital volume tomography (DVT), computer tomography (CT), fully equipped operating theatres and much more. Thanks to our cooperation with Zahnklinik Ost, we can even offer inpatient stays.

Own laboratory – short channels

In the case of a planned tooth implantation, our own dental laboratories – directly in the neighbouring rooms of the practices – are a clear advantage for you as a patient. This means that personal consultations with the dental technicians are possible at any time. Thanks to extensive laboratory technology, our experienced lab team and the use of modern, biocompatible materials, we can realise aesthetically pleasing and high-quality tooth replacements.

You will see that, in our open and barrier-free dental practices in Adlershof and Karlshorst, you are in good hands for all dental issues. Competent, specialised dentists, a qualified practice team, modern technical equipment, a German master dental lab directly on site as well as the use of exclusively high-quality materials and modern technologies at a fair price will ensure you have complete care during your implant operation.

Frequently asked questions

  • Will I feel the tooth implant?

    Generally, you cannot feel tooth implants. They assume the function of the natural tooth completely. This means that they feel and look like real teeth.

  • Is tooth implant treatment painful?

    The implant operation itself is completely pain-free thanks to anaesthesia. This takes place as an outpatient operation with local anaesthetic or sedation. General anaesthetic is also possible if desired. Up to two or three days after the operation, there may still be some slight pain. However, conventional painkillers usually help here.

  • How long to tooth implants last?

    Tooth implants are extremely long-lasting. This is proven by scientific studies. These state that over 90 % of tooth implants are still firm after 10 years and continue to fulfil their complete function. By comparison, in the same period, this is only the case for 80 % of bridges and 75 % of individual crowns.
    As with natural teeth, however, the long life strongly depends on care and oral hygiene. With thorough dental care and regular check-up appointments (1-2x per year), you can preserve a tooth implant for much longer than 10 years, and sometimes for your whole life. We are happy to advise you on implant treatment. Get in touch!

  • How much does a tooth implant cost?

    The costs for tooth implants are difficult to quantify in general figures. Individually, this depends on the respective findings, the labour involved in treatment, the treatment method, the material used as well as the scope of your health insurance. The extensive personal consultation at Zahnkultur Berlin also includes the preparation of a detailed treatment and cost plan. You can submit this to your health insurance provider. This means that you will know in advance whether and to which amount your health insurance provider will cover the costs for your tooth implant. If required, we offer the option of financing, where you pay the treatment costs in up to twelve instalments without interest or fees.

  • Will my health insurance provider pay for this?

    Sadly, the statutory health insurance providers do not cover the costs for the insertion of tooth implants. However, they do subsidise the prosthetic fitting, meaning the implant crown. If you are privately insured, the reimbursement of costs depends on your tariff. In any case, you should submit the cost and treatment plan which we prepare to your health insurance provider in advance so that you can calculate the costs you will have to cover yourself. If desired and where needed, you have the option of paying the treatment costs in interest and fee-free instalments (max. 12 instalments).

  • Are there any risks?

    Every operation involves risks. This means that complications may also arise during the placement of tooth implants. However, by way of conscientious check-ups, careful advance planning and as precise and careful a method as possible, we can largely minimise the risks.

  • When can I go back to work after the tooth implantation?

    In principle, you can go back to light work such as office activities as early as the following day. Some swelling is usually possible for two or three days after the tooth implant has been inserted, more severe complaints are rare. However, in any case, discuss this with your implantologist and follow their recommendations as much as possible.

  • How should I look after my tooth implant at home?

    Inter-dental cleaning is very important when looking after tooth implants. For this reason, you should thoroughly clean the spaces between your teeth before each time you brush your teeth. Ask your dentist what would be best suited for this in your case: dental floss, inter-dental brushes, super floss or single-tuft toothbrushes. As well as daily implant care at home, regular, professional implant treatment in the dental practice around once or twice per year is particularly important to preserve your tooth implants for longer.

  • ensure smooth connection establishment,
  • ensure comfortable use of our website,
  • evaluation of system security and stability.

The data are stored for a period of 7 days and then automatically deleted. Furthermore, we use so-called cookies and tracking tools for our website. The exact nature of these processes and how your data will be used for this purpose is explained in more detail in section 3.4. below.

If you have agreed to so-called geolocation in your browser or operating system or other settings of your terminal device, we use this function to offer you individual services related to your current location (e.g. the location of our medical practice). We process your location data processed in this way exclusively for this function. Once you end the use, the data will be deleted.

3.2 How, to what extent, and on what legal basis do we process your data when concluding, performing or terminating a contract?

      1. Data processing upon conclusion of contract

The object of Öztan & Partner GbR is dental services (examinations, treatments, consulting, etc.). In this context, we process the data required for the conclusion, performance or termination of a contract with you. These include:

  • first name, surname
  • billing address
  • billing and payment data 
  • your health insurance provider and type of health insurance (private/statutory)
  • e-mail address, if applicable 
  • date of birth, if applicable
  • phone number, if applicable
  • other treatment-related information (e.g. type of complaints etc.)

The legal basis for this could be Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR—i.e. you provide us with the data on the basis of the contractual relationship between you and us—or Article 9 (2) lit. h GDPR. If we do not use your contact data for advertising purposes (see section 3.3. below), we store the data collected for the processing of the contract until the expiry of the statutory or, if applicable, contractual warranty and guarantee rights. After the expiry of this period, we retain the information of the contractual relationship required under medical, commercial, and tax law for the statutory periods. The data may be reprocessed during this period (usually ten years from the date of conclusion of the contract or, in some cases, 18 or 30 years), for example in the event of a review by the tax authorities.

      1. Transmission to credit agencies

In the event of a default in payment, we will transfer the necessary data to a company commissioned with the assertion of the claim if the other legal requirements are met. The legal basis for this is both Article 6 (1) lit. b and Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The assertion of a contractual claim is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the second provision. If the other legal requirements are met, we will also forward information about the default in payment or any loss of receivables to credit agencies cooperating with us. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest required here results from our interest and that of third parties in reducing contractual risks for future contracts.

      1. Contact option via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of Öztan & Partner GbR contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis (cf. Article 6 (1) lit. a or Article 9 (1) GDPR) from a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. This personal data is not be passed on to third parties.

3.3. How and on what legal basis do we process your data for advertising purposes?

The following explanations refer to the processing of personal data for advertising purposes. The GDPR declares such data processing to be conceivable in principle on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit. f and to be a legitimate interest. The duration of data storage for advertising purposes does not follow any rigid principles and is based on the question whether the storage is necessary for advertising purposes. At Öztan & Partner GbR we additionally apply the principle of deleting data for advertising purposes after 2 years. Please refer to section 3.3.3. for the procedure that is followed in the event of your objection.

      1. Advertising purposes of Öztan & Partner GbR and third parties

If you have been treated by us or have made use of our other dental services, we will treat you as an existing patient. In this case, we process your postal contact data outside of the existence of a specific consent in order to send you information about new products and services or birthday and/or holiday greetings. We process your e-mail address in order to send you information for our own, similar products/services outside the existence of a specific consent.

      1. Right to object

You can object to data processing for the above-mentioned purposes at any time free of charge, separately for each respective communication channel and with effect for the future. For this purpose, it is sufficient to send an e-mail or a postal letter to the contact details stated under section 2.

If you file an objection, the contact address concerned will be blocked for further promotional data processing. We would like to point out that in exceptional cases, advertising material may still be sent temporarily even after receipt of your objection. This is due to technical reasons resulting from the necessary lead time of advertisements and does not mean that we will not implement your objection. Thank you for your understanding.

4. When do we disclose your data to recipients outside the EU?

With the exception of the processing described under section 3.4., we do not pass on your data to recipients based outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. The processing mentioned under section 3.4. results in a data transfer to the servers of the providers of tracking technologies commissioned by us. These servers are located in the USA. The data transfer is carried out according to the principles of the so-called Privacy Shield and on the basis of so-called standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

5. What rights do you have regarding your data?

  1. Overview

In addition to the right to revoke your consent granted to us, you are entitled to the following further rights if the respective legal requirements are met: 

  • Right to information about your personal data stored with us in accordance with Article 15 GDPR; in particular, you can obtain information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the origin of your data if this data were not collected directly from you,
  • Right to rectification of incorrect data or completion of correct data in accordance with Article 16 GDPR,
  • Right to erasure of your data stored with us in accordance with Article 17 GDPR insofar as no legal or contractual retention periods or other legal obligations or rights to further storage must be observed,
  • Right to the restriction of the processing of your data in accordance with Article 18 GDPR, if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse the erasure of your data; the controller no longer requires the data, but you require it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 GDPR;
  • Right to data transferability in accordance with Article 20 GDPR, i.e. the right to have selected data stored by us about you transferred in a common, machine-readable format, or to request transfer to another controller
  • Right to appeal to a supervisory authority. You can generally contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our head office for this purpose.
  1. Right to object
    Under the conditions of Article 21 (1) GDPR, the data processing may be objected to for reasons arising from the specific situation of the data subject.

The above general right of objection applies to all processing purposes described in this data protection information which are processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. In contrast to the special right of objection with regard to data processing for advertising purposes (see section 3.3.3. above), we are only obliged under the GDPR to implement such a general objection if you give us reasons of overriding importance (e.g. a possible danger to life or health). In addition, it is possible to contact the supervisory authority responsible for Öztan & Partner GbR, the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.

6. How long do we store your data?

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the respective legal retention period (e.g. retention periods under medical, commercial, and tax law). This period is usually 3 years (e.g. in the case of the regular limitation period for contractual or medical liability claims) or 10 years (e.g. in the case of retention periods under tax law). In some cases, the retention period is 18 or 30 years (e.g. in the case of chronic diseases). After expiry of the period, the corresponding data are routinely deleted, provided that the data are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract and/or we have no justified interest in further storage.
