Immediate restoration: new teeth in one day
Immediate restoration is a modern method of placing implants. The treatment is completed within 24 hours. The patient receives new, fixed teeth in just one day. The immediate restoration is suitable for patients with few natural teeth or in the event that the previous denture wobbles. It also represents a cost-effective alternative to classic implant treatment.
Our patient Birgit L., 61, had just given up smoking. She was no longer satisfied with the health of her teeth. All the teeth in the upper jaw were already very loose. The dentist she first went to suggested that she remove all of her teeth. These should be replaced by a complete upper jaw prosthesis. Ms. L. was skeptical about the proposal. The entire palate would be covered and proper biting would no longer be possible.
Then she heard about the immediate restoration without lengthy treatment and came to the ZZZW. In an extensive consultation, we explained various treatment alternatives to the patient. In the end, Ms. L. decided on immediate restoration.
The modern method of immediate restoration makes it possible for the patient to insert fixed teeth on 4 to 8 implants via a screwed bridge within 24 hours.
It is also suitable for patients who still have their own teeth but are no longer healthy enough to accept a denture.
The rear implants are inserted at an angle. This avoids time-consuming and costly bone augmentation measures.
Immediate restoration was therefore the optimal treatment option for Ms. L.
The Portuguese doctor Dr. Paolo Malo laid the scientific basis for teeth in one day. As early as 1998 he successfully treated patients with this method. Many long-term studies have now been published. They prove: The success rate of immediate restoration is comparable to that of classic implant therapy. State-of-the-art 3D planning and our own dental technology support the short and gentle treatment.
The actual placement of the implants takes about 2 hours. Our dental technician, who specializes in immediate restorations, then immediately begins to manufacture your new dentures. All necessary consultations, diagnoses and examinations take place in the days and weeks before the treatment.
The treatment costs for Ms. L. were around 9,600 euros for placing the 6 implants in the upper jaw and screwing in the bridge the next day.
Immediate restoration made it possible to save more than 40 percent compared to the initial suggestion. In general, however, the costs vary from case to case and depend on the individual situation. Implants are always a private service.
However, the statutory health insurance companies grant grants. Private dental insurance can also help to reduce the co-payment.
