Digital radiography

In comparison with conventional radiography, digital radiography has many advantages.

The informative value of these pictures is superior and many additional functions such as bone densitometry are included automatically. We perform such measurements at no extra cost for all patients receiving implants, as well as upon demand.

In addition, digital X-rays are immediately available, and can be sent to doctors or patients by e-mail without a loss of quality. Expensive copies are no longer necessary.

The most significant advantage to you is the extremely low radiation exposure. A large x-ray results in the same radiation exposure as a flight from Frankfurt to Mallorca.

Digital radiography as computer tomography

When performing more complex implantations, we try to keep the stress level for the patient as low as possible. We do this by using so-called “minimally invasive” procedures, also known as keyhole surgery.

A Cat Scan (computer-assisted tomography) is performed and the data obtained is then fed into a special computer program and subsequently processed. The implants can thereby be planned accurately to the millimeter, and then be implanted in your jaw with the aid of a computer-generated template, obviating the need for major surgery.

Since the dental technician is also provided with this data, he can fabricate the implant superstructure before the procedure takes place. Often you will receive your teeth within a few days after the implants are anchored.
