A dazzling healthy smile has always been the key to success. Unfortunately, injuries and accidents, as well as lack of dental care often lead to loss of teeth. The lack of teeth can significantly reduce the self-esteem and cause severe health problem. The dental prostheses allow not only restore the full range of functions of the patient’s jaw, but also to provide excellent aesthetic results. The dentures can be divided into three groups:
- Getting permanent or fixed dentures
- Getting removable dentures (partial or complete)
- Getting temporary dentures
These permanent dentures are implant-retained constructions, which are placed on a titanium screw, previously implanted into the jawbone. Getting implants to maintain dentures in Germany is a quick, painless and safe procedure. In some cases the German dentists offer the mini-implants (less than 3mm), which are smaller than the regular ones. The difference in implant size is crucial, as it helps to reduce the healing process and to cut the treatment time. In some cases the patients get their dentures within 1-2 visits of a dentist.
Dentures and the benefits of implants
To get a permanent denture, you have to implant a special foundation into the jawbone. Getting an implant is an important step prior to setting the denture. A dental implant is a small titanium screw, which replaces the root. After the implantation this screw fuses into the bone, which takes 2-3 months. The benefits are numerous:
- Implant-supported teeth restore functionality
- Muscle support and support of facial structures
- You can chew food and smile
- One prevents the loss of other teeth
- The life quality and self confidence is restored
The cost of a dental implant at German clinics is affordable: 1 000-3000 euro, which is lower than in the USA, Great Britain and Canada.

The German dental clinics offer a variety of dentures. The German specialists in restorative dentistry do their best to provide their patients with high-quality crowns and dental bridges. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps, which disguise the tooth problems and strengthen it. The crowns made in Germany look natural and are perfectly reliable. Made of the innovative porcelain such crowns will serve you over the decades.
A dental bridge is a bridge-like construction, which fills in the gap between the teeth (in case one or more teeth are missing). A bridge prevents your teeth from changing their position and other dental pathologies.
The dental crowns and bridges are manufactured with the help of a CEREC technology of digital modelling. With the help of a CEREC machine, the German dentists create 3D digital images of a patient’s tooth. And produce the natural-looking crown or bridge within an hour. The price for dentures (dental crowns or dental bridges) varies according to the individual indications and materials.
