Praxis Prof. Tepper

Implantology

We provide comprehensive services in all fields of dentistry, as well as surgical treatments under general anesthesia. We have 6 state of-the-art, fully equipped treatment rooms, 2 sterilizers with digital documentation to exceed legal hygiene standards, and carefully trained staff.


Implant consultation – how does it work?

It is our principle to start each and every therapy with a personal conversation. We believe that expert consultation should be free for the patient. You are welcome to bring a companion, for example, your partner to this important appointment.


What do I need to do?

In principle, you do not have to do or bring anything. We make a panoramic x-ray of your teeth (covered by Austrian insurance/ e-card), and in more complex cases, we’ll take a digital volume tomography (DVT). We have our own DVT-device, and are able to perform exact three-dimensional treatment planning. This significantly increases the precision of the implantation and minimizes treatment risks.


Are there different implants or are they all the same?

There is a huge number of implant manufacturers around the globe. We use only implants from manufacturers with over 50 years of experience and the best possible guarantee for patients. The differences arise from the purity of the titanium, the most innovative concepts and above all the question: Would we as dentists use this implant for ourselves or not? One should not forget that the implant becomes part of the body – what we as specialists do not want in our body, our patients do not get. In this point, we are uncompromising, and our advice is: Do not look for the cheapest implant, but the highest quality at the fairest price!


The cost issue

Every patient is individual – every mouth is different. You will receive tailor-made cost estimates from us, so that you are always fully informed about of the costs. Since we are a specialized practice for implants and are among the European practices with the highest number of implants placed, we are able to use our purchasing volume to calculate particularly attractive prices for our patients.


How long does it take to get an implant?

A single implant is placed in 3 to 5 minutes. Here, the routine of the specialist plays a big role. In general, 4 to 8 implants rarely take more than 20 to 30 minutes to be inserted. 99% of our patients only require local anesthesia – if needed, we can offer general anesthesia as well.

How long does the whole therapy take – from implant to teeth?

Generally, implants in the mandible (lower jaw) take two months, in the maxilla (upper jaw) three months for integration – that’s the time after which most of the final dental work is placed. In the meantime, provisionals will be provided.


What is an immediate implant?

An immediate implant is the most modern form of implantology. Here, after careful removal of the tooth, the implant is inserted into the existing tooth socket (“hole” in the bone). The procedure is extremely gentle, takes only a few minutes and saves additional intervention, trips to the dentist and costs. Whether such an immediate implantation is feasible must be decided individually.


I have diabetes, is that a hindrance?

Nowadays, a diabetic whose blood sugar has been well controlled under medical supervision is mostly a normal patient for implants. The scientific results show that the success rates of implants are excellent in diabetics and that nothing stands in the way of implantation. Ideal oral hygiene is needed.


I’m taking anti-coagulants – is that a problem?

Nowadays, a large part of the population is on some sort of anti-coagulant therapy (taking medication such as Marcoumar, Plavix, Sintrom, Thrombo Ass, Xarelto, Pradaxa, Lixiana, etc.). An interruption of this therapy is usually not necessary. If necessary, we will consult with your GP and decide individually.



There are only two questions that you have to ask the doctor,

Regarding implants



1) Who is the implantologist?


Who is the implantologist in terms of experience, education, training and reputation?

Prof. Tepper, trained both in Austria and the USA, is a global lecturer and teacher with over 20 years of experience and thousands of implants succesfully placed, a reviewer for scientific journals and involved in the development and application of new products. He is absolutely convinced that only those who do implant surgery every day can be considered real implantologists.


2) Which implant is used?


There are great differences in quality and support among thousands of manufacturers. Not all manufacturers invest equally in research and documentation. Prof. Tepper is a trainer for worldwide leading systems and can find the right implant for you after a detailed personal interview.
