by Dr Regina Schindjalova

Better Treatment, the new book by Dr Regina SchindjalovaA bright, white Hollywood smile and finally being able to bite properly again – those are the two most frequently expressed wishes which today’s dentistry should fulfil according to patients. And in most cases, this can now be done.

Because: Medical progress now makes it possible to do a lot which would have simply inconceivable a few years or decades ago. For example, implantology is both a very old and very new dental process, which is highly valued for it high success rate and is now one of the most effective, patient-friendly methods to treat a gap in the teeth, or a completely toothless jaw.

But it’s not just the functional aspects which are growing in importance, but also the aesthetic aspects. Discoloured teeth can be a thing of the past in no time with professional bleaching or by using a veneer.

Real works of art can now be produced in technical dental laboratories, which look so close to a natural tooth that you can hardly tell the difference. Also with regard to gaps in teeth or alignment of a denture treatment.

Fast- & Fixed-Therapy Concept – also for periodontitis profunda
(Author: Dr. Regina Schindjalova, published in the Implantologie -Journal, Edition 8/2012)

In recent years, the Fast & Fixed process has become highly regarded as a successful, efficient treatment as an alternative to conventional implantation. Above all, because it allows the implant to be used from the very first day.

In particular patients who want a firmly positioned treatment benefit from this process. Even if they suffer from the effects of periodontitis.

In this specialist publication, Dr Regina Schindjalova describes the case of a patient who had to have all their remaining teeth removed after a sever case of periodontitis. The natural teeth were able to move so much that the patient could only eat soft food. At the Dentaprime Dental Clinic, she was finally able to get the solid teeth she wanted.

Dr Schindjalova use the Fast & Fixed technique with her, set five implants into the upper jaw and four implants in the lower jaw. Using an innovative method, impressions were made over the implants, and both jaws finally fitted with long-term temporaries.

Not just suitable for completely toothless jaws.

While the Fast & Fixed technique is used mainly in toothless jaws, it is by no means ideally suitable. Dr Regina Schindjalova describes the case of a patient who was toothless in the upper right jaw.

She used a modified form of the Fast & Fixed process, so that the upper jaw could be treated. She used three implants and then treated the patient with a long-term temporary. What’s important in the Fast & Fixed process is that the fit of the implant can be planned and implemented in conjunction with and depending on the remaining natural teeth.

Nasal floor elevation as a treatment option in cases of frontal bone loss.
(Author: Dr. Regina Schindjalova, published in DI – Dentale Implantologie und Parodontologie)

Not all bone regenerations are the same – the regeneration process needs to be adapted to the conditions at different points in the jaw. It becomes difficult when there is not enough bone present for an implant in the front area. For various reasons, it may not always be possible to free enough neighbouring space for an implant, for example because there is not enough bone material present there. What can be done?

In this specialist publication, Dr Regina Schindjalova describes the case of a 47 year-old patient, who wanted firmly positioned replacement teeth. After initial examinations, it became clear that there was not enough bone at the front to guarantee a secure implant. The nasal floor also exhibited an irregular structure. A nasal floor elevation was performed to rebuild the missing bone once more. To do this, a small opening to the nasal floor was opened in the bone into which the bone replacement material was inserted. Implants were inserted once this healed and after bone build-up.

Sofortimplantation in der Retrospektive – Eine Studie zu Erfolg und Misserfolg von Implantationen
(Autorin: Dr. Regina Schindjalova, erschienen in der zzi – Zeitschrift für Zahnärztliche Implantologie, 01/2014)

Sofortimplantationen bieten Möglichkeiten, die bei einer herkömmlichen Implantation nicht gegeben sind: sofortige Versorgung und Belastung, Zeit- und dadurch teilweise auch Kostenersparnis. Aber sind Sofortimplantationen auch wirklich sicher?

In ihrer retrospektiven Studie sammelte Dr. Dr. Schindjalova Daten von 30 Patienten, die allesamt Implantatversorgungen (SKY fast & fixed, insgesamt 208) erhielten. Ihre Ergebnisse zeigen: “Die fast & fixed-Versorgung hat sich als zuverlässige Methode der Implantation bewährt”.
Mit einer Erfolgsquote von 100 Prozent (bzw. 98,08 Prozent) bei Implantationen und von 100 Prozent bei der prothetischen Versorgung beweist sie, dass die Sofortimplantation mit angulierten und axialen Implantaten sicher und erfolgreich ist.

Die jungen Alten
(Autorin: ZTM Peter Meier, erschienen in der Cosmetic Dentistry, 04/2014)

Schönheit und Ästhetik sind zwei wichtige Aspekte in der modernen Zahnmedizin und Zahntechnik. Neue Versorgungen sollen besonders gut aussehen und die Attraktivität des Trägers steigern. Welche Verantwortung der Zahntechniker aber in seiner beratenden und ausführenden Funktion hat, beschreibt ZTM Peter Meier in seinem Fachartikel.

Denn letztendlich kommt es nicht nur darauf an, dass der neue Zahnersatz strahlend weiß ist, sondern auch, dass er sich optimal an das Aussehen des Patienten angleicht.Und noch natürlich wirken kann.
