Oral surgery is a subdomain of the oral and maxillofacial surgery and deals primarily with diseases of the oral cavity. In particular, terms such as dental prosthesis, periodontal disease, dental root inflammation and dental implants tend to awaken uneasy feelings in patients.
At Medi-Kuss, we understand the fears and concerns of our patients. This is why our specialists commit to each patient individually and ensure the treatment is carried out as carefully as possible. That way you can finally sit back in the dental chair feeling relaxed and unafraid before flashing a carefree smile again soon after.
Oral surgery in Hamburg: An overview of our services
Surgical interventions aimed at tooth preservation
Implant as dental prosthesis
We are your experienced partner for high-quality dental implants in Hamburg. A comprehensive consultation is a priority for us. We offer free and non-binding implant advice in order to identify the optimal treatment!
We discuss the possibility of dental prosthesis by means of a dental implant with you and show you possible alternatives. Together we find the right path towards an optimal result, in line with your financial situation..
We carry out a clinical and radiological check-up shortly after the personal consultation in order to obtain a detailed insight into your mouth’s current condition. Based on this analysis, we then draw up a treatment plan and cost estimate tailored to your needs.
Should the implant serve as a prosthesis for a tooth that needs to be operatively extracted first, the replacement can be completed in a single sitting (immediate implant placement) depending on the existing bone structure and the condition of the wound. In the case of inflammation, the dental implant can be placed after 6-8 weeks (delayed implant placement). We also offer delayed implant placements after a recovery interval of approx. 3-4 months (late implant placement). The objective behind this is to allow you to quickly recover the ability to chew.
After approximately 4-6 months the healing phase in the upper jaw is usually completed. The lower jaw after 3-4 months. After the dental implant has connected to the natural bone structure (complete osseointegration) the implant is surgically uncovered. This process involves replacing the cover screw with gingiva former. The management of soft surrounding tissue plays a paramount role in this intervention, as only strong surrounding tissue can guarantee the “health” of the implant. Once the wound has healed sufficiently, the stitches can be removed. When doing this, your dentist will take an impression and prepare a new crown. After that you have made it and can bite into things courageously again.
IMPLANT SURROUNDING TISSUE
The quality and quantity of your bone structure represents a determining factor in the placement and primary stability of your implant. Thus the condition of the surrounding mucosa influences the trouble-free longevity of your new dental root. It also affects the appearance of your new prosthetic. In order to minimise the risk of peri-implant pocket formation or any subsequent peri-implant bone breakdown, we apply numerous surgical techniques. The goal is always to maintain a region of firm gum tissue (firm gingiva) around the implant neck. We usually make use of vestibuloplasty to achieve this. If necessary, we complement this by carrying out mucosa transplants. Additional bone reconstruction only becomes necessary in very rare cases. This procedure has allowed us to place countless dental prosthetics and give our patients back their carefree smile.
