Dr. med.dent. Dirk Mankow was awarded by the German Society for Implantology in the Dental, Oral and Jaw Area (DGI).

Implants offer numerous advantages:

The interventions are limited to the affected teeth.

Neighboring teeth remain untouched.

Implants are long-lasting and compatible with the body.

The jawbone remains stable.

Dental implants can be loaded like natural teeth.

Maximum chewing comfort is guaranteed.

All-on-4® - the implant specialization in our clinic

A specialty of our clinic in Berlin are so-called All-on-4® restorations.

They affect patients who have very few teeth left. They usually get a full denture, as the teeth can often not be preserved due to gum disease or tooth decay.

These conventional prostheses have one disadvantage: they only rest on the gums and often wobble when chewing and talking.

In 1998 the Portuguese dentist Dr. Paulo Malo applied a new process for the first time – All-on-4®. A screwed bridge is placed on 4 implants in the lower jaw shortly after the tooth has been removed. The patient gets back aesthetics and comfort. This system is now scientifically well documented. In addition, new materials have made it possible to significantly reduce the costs of such restorations.

At the Zehlendorfer Welle dental center in Berlin, we work with the further developed All-on-4® supply – the ArtOnSystems®.

Questions and answers about implants

A bridge replaces one or more teeth. The prerequisite for this is that there are still stable teeth in front of and behind the tooth gap. An implant is an artificial tooth root that is anchored in the bone like the natural tooth root. A prosthesis is a removable denture. This is done when there are too few teeth or implants to use a fixed denture.
If you’ve lost a tooth or teeth, that’s no reason to put up with it. With us, the doctors from ZZZW, you have very good advisors and professional contacts at your side. We will inform you which type of dentures is best for you. There is no general answer to this question – whether an implant or a bridge is more suitable for you. Both types of dentures have advantages and disadvantages or, depending on a number of factors, can produce better results in certain patients.
An optimal dental prosthesis – regardless of the shape – brings you back quality of life. Not only does the look improve, but there are also fewer problems with eating and speaking. Our goal is to achieve a perfect treatment result for you with our modern treatment methods, which we use age-specifically and always individually.
From a medical point of view, there are no age restrictions when placing implants. But – counseling comes before treatment. During the consultation, we clarify which type of denture is the best solution for you individually. Medical aspects are in the foreground; we investigate e.g. the condition of the jawbone and the gums, ask questions about chronic diseases (e.g. diabetes), only then will we make a specific recommendation.
The operation itself doesn’t hurt a bit, you will be anesthetized locally. Of course, you will sometimes feel some pressure or vibration when drilling. Or you can hear the noises too, but you feel no pain. The anesthetic wears off after 4 to 6 hours. We only recommend general anesthesia for very extensive interventions or if you want to “sleep through” the treatment completely. If necessary, you can then take other pain relievers (e.g. ibuprofen) afterwards. Since the patient’s perception of pain is very different, this is an important question that we clarify individually in the consultation.
It is very rare for implants to have to be removed again and is usually the result of inadequate oral hygiene. It is very likely that there is swelling, and rarely so-called bruises. However, with consistent cooling, these disappear after a few days. You will have to hold back when it comes to food immediately after the operation. How long – we clarify that before the procedure or when the operation has been carried out successfully. You should refrain from sport and excessive movement for the first 10 days after the procedure, as well as taking a sauna, because too much heat can promote inflammatory processes.
The costs vary from case to case. Of course, there is no lump sum here. The simplest denture treatments that we have performed so far cost around 1,800 euros (implant with crown). Depending on the medical indication, previous history and your wishes, the ZZZW will always send you a detailed quote in advance.
There is no general answer to this question in hours or minutes. There are treatments that end after just 20 minutes. Larger interventions can take three hours. We will discuss your case individually. We can tell you pretty much how long you will stay with us.
Most of the implants currently in use are made of titanium.
There are drugs that can interact with treatment. This concerns e.g. the bisphosphonates used in cancer treatment and osteoporosis therapy. Please tell us before the treatment what medication you are taking.
In short: With good care, for a lifetime. An implant does not develop caries, it can hardly break – however, in contrast to natural teeth, it has no self-healing powers. The health of the gums and bones in your mouth is crucial. Consistent oral hygiene will keep the surrounding gums and bones healthy. We’re sure you can do it.
The coverage of the costs for implants is currently not provided for in the service catalog of the statutory health insurance companies. As part of the standard care, there are so-called fixed grants, these are regulated by law. TIP: A well-managed bonus booklet is a great advantage for you here. In exceptional cases, e.g. after accidents or allergies or in the case of cancerous tumors, the statutory health insurance funds bear the costs as part of the “regular” treatment. All other implantological services are to be paid privately. We determine the amount of the costs during the initial examination and explain to you in detail what to expect.
In the first few days after the operation, eating solid foods is unfavorable. There is usually swelling in the mouth that makes chewing difficult. Yoghurts and soups are a good nutritional basis. In the course of the healing process, you can always increase your intake of solid foods (e.g. pasta) a little. Depending on the healing progress, it will take at least 5 weeks before you can eat again without restriction. Depending on the operation, you will receive specific and individual recommendations for nutrition after the operation from the ZZZW.
When placing dental implants, artificial tooth roots are inserted into the jawbone. Before a crown, bridge or prosthesis is placed, the implant has to heal (osseointegration). This can take between 2 and 6 months, if bone building measures are added, it can also take around 9 months. These are general guidelines – the exact duration of the healing process varies from patient to patient. You will receive a temporary solution for the healing time that protects the implant and enables you to lead a completely normal life. Nobody can tell from the ongoing dental treatment.
 
In addition, it is now possible to attach fixed teeth to four to 6 implants. This is also called all-on-x supply. Often the patient can leave the practice with the new teeth just 24 hours after the implantation.
This question cannot be answered with an exact time. It depends on the type of procedure and your physical condition. Placing an implant is a medical procedure with local anesthesia (or under general anesthesia). We recommend taking it easy for a day or two after minor surgery. With more extensive interventions, e.g. In the case of bone transplants, you should rest for at least 5 to 10 days, of which at least 2 days with maximum rest. Your implant will serve you well for a long time – stepping back a few days is not worth mentioning.
For example, pre-existing conditions can increase the risk that the body will not accept a particular implant. Clarifying this is our approach with an individual consultation. In this way, risk factors for you are minimized or can be excluded.
Sick leave is always individual. As a precaution, however, you should expect a failure of up to a week.

Our patients are very satisfied.
