“The worst aspect were the sounds . . .”

Mrs. K.V., Munich

My sister is actually to ‘blame’ for the fact that I now have implants.
She was the one, who had spent time researching the subject and consequently underwent implant treatment.

Personally, I had a removable denture piece in my upper jaw for quite a while, which was fixed with a brace to the roof of my mouth and to some of my own teeth. When my own teeth started to decay and therefore loosen and threatened to fall out, a solution was needed.
Convinced by my sister, I arranged my first appointment with Dr. Bartels. During this visit my option became clear: a complete denture for the upper jaw, which would be fixed by a roof palette or dental implants. I considered just the brace that had been used for years to secure my denture as very uncomfortable and now I was to get a roof palette?

Although I was very sceptical about implants, I still went and got more information from Dr. Bartels. Having measured the density of my jawbone, he explained that my bone carried all the requirements for a successful implant. My sister offered all the other reassuring I needed.

Dr. Bartels made several suggestions and I chose the ‘four implants with removable tooth replacements’ option. The first surgery session was to insert the synthetic titanium roots. It was painless due to the local anaesthetic – the only unpleasant aspect were the sounds. My blood pressure was also measured in regular intervals during surgery as mine is often high and Dr. Bartels didn’t want to put me under any risk. I must say that during all the treatment I always felt good and well looked after.

During the healing process I was fitted with a provisional denture and five months later I got my final tooth replacement.

But it was not all over yet. Three years later my lower jaw was giving me problems. This time I did not hesitate and immediately knew that I wanted implant treatment, as I knew what to expect. With two short incisions, three titanium roots were set to the left and right.

My lower jaw is now well serviced with permanent crowns and bridges. The only thing that annoys me a bit today, is that I should have decided for a permanent tooth replacement in my upper jaw. But that would have meant that instead of the four synthetic roots, eight would have had to be placed and as a ‘newcomer to implants’ in would have been too much for me back then.
