Welcome!

About us

In 1991 Karsten Luther founded his dental practice. Since then, he has been continuously participating in further training and in doing so discovered his enthusiasm for minimally invasive implantology 18 years ago. Together with the company Champions Implants (www.championsimplants.com) he sets a symbol for the future with his skills in the field of minimally invasive implantology. State-of-the-art technology and continuously developing implantation techniques give him as much pleasure as the results of his satisfied patients.

Last but not least, his concept of success is based on a qualified and friendly practice team, which advises, cares for and treats our patients independently and professionally. This is how a dental practice from thirty years ago has become a centre for minimally invasive implantology today.

 

Dental implants

 

Missing teeth don't just look bad, they also lead to a number of other medical problems. The neighbouring teeth can often lean into the gap, or the opposing tooth (antagonist) extends into the gap. Our body frequently reacts to this with tension in the neck muscles, head and face pain, tinitus up to dizziness and back and hip problems.

As well as this, a gap can result in the loss of more teeth. Dental implants are artificial roots which are used in the jawbones. They have individual crowns or bridges or anchor removable prostheses. Implants have been tried and tested for 40 years and are now an integral part

of the dental treatment spectrum.

An implant is not an implant

 

In recent decades, not only have a variety of different implant systems been developed, but so have different surgical methods.

In addition to the conventional procedure (KIV), the

MIMI flapless procedure (minimally invasive methodology of implantation)

is becoming more and more popular in dental

implantology due to its many advantages. The characteristic feature of this

minimally invasive technique is that the gums are not cut open.

The implant is inserted into the jaw with almost no blood and

completely painlessly through a punctiform drilling. After the anesthesia

has subsided, there is almost no pain and swelling is a thing of the past thanks to this "keyhole surgery". Since there’s always an immediate restoration, there’s no need to wear removable temporary restorations for weeks.

On top of all this, the costs decrease depending on the scope of the treatment by 10 to 40%!

 

 

We also treat under general anaesthesia

Patients who have a strong fear of dentists, and particularly complex

rehabilitations often require outpatient anaesthesia.

To that end, appointments were agreed in the practice for anesthesiology and pain therapy Dr K. Gastmeier in Potsdam.

Periodontology & professional teeth cleaning

Craniomandibular dysfunction & functional dentures

What is periodontitis? What causes it? What can I do about it?

Periodontitis is a bacterial-inflammatory disease of the tooth structure and the surrounding jawbone.  The deterioration in the gums and jaw is triggered by microorganisms in dental plaque. In most cases the inflammatory reaction is completely painless and only visible through bleeding gums. If no action is taken at this point, further bacteria penetrate the tissue, destroy it and ultimately lead to loosening of the affected teeth. This destructive process is almost always accompanied by bad breath, which the person affected tends not to notice. In addition, patients with periodontal disease are at higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Prevention is better than cure... So...

professional teeth cleaning in our practice

We know that people in the Stone Age poked their teeth clean with willow branches. Doctors in ancient Egypt created the first toothpaste... a mixture of ground pumice and wine vinegar on chewing sticks. Today in our practice we offer you individual prophylaxis which is tailored to your situation and which will give you a bright smile in the long term. As part of this professional tooth cleaning, all the hard and soft deposits as well as discolouration which have escaped home dental and oral care are removed by our qualified prophylaxis assistant. The tooth surfaces are smoothed/polished and then hardened with a special fluorine varnish. Some of the statutory health insurance companies pay a share of the costs for this. We would be happy to explain the type and scope of dental care at home to you in an individual consultation.

Craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD)

Cranio-mandibular dysfunction (malfunction in the skull/lower jaw area) is characterised by pain in the jaw and face area, neck and back pain, TMJ pain  and  joint and ear noises (tinnitus).  This is triggered by stress and mental tension in combination with a bad bite. Inaccuracies  of a few thousandths of a millimetre when gritting can cause CMD symptoms.

 

How do I recognise a CMD disease?

Whenever your symptoms recur at regular intervals despite treatment by an orthopedic surgeon, neurologist, otolaryngologist or physiotherapist, you should think of a CMD. Remedial measures and pain relief can be achieved in the shortest possible time with a bite splint (equilibration splints, occlusion splints,  etc.). These splints are part of our initial therapy.

Aesthetic and functional dentures

Everyone can imagine what aesthetic dentures are, i.e. beautiful teeth, or everyone has their own ideas of beauty.

… but what are functional dentures?

Thanks to the latest analysis of the temporomandibular joint  and a precise recording of the movements of the lower jaw, it’s possible to manufacture dentures in the dental laboratory individually for the muscles and the temporomandibular joint of the future wearer. This procedure is particularly important for fixed dentures, since inaccuracies of just a few micrometers  on the occlusal surfaces often lead to the CMD problem.

Special equipment

What can we do for you if the jawbone has disappeared

due to inflammatory processes and tooth extraction?

 

In the past, a second surgical area was opened in the angle of the jaw or chin to obtain the patient's own bone, which often led to further complications, which is why alternatives such as denatured bovine bones, synthetic materials or human processed bones were sought.

 

The absolute breakthrough of using the body's own material came

with the invention of the Smart Grinder, which uses the patient’s own tooth substance as a bone augmentation and is still largely unknown.

Professor Itzhak Binderman and his team at the University of Tel Aviv have successfully practiced the process of preparing extracted patient teeth and using them as bone replacement material and have already won numerous innovation awards. Teeth are very similar to bone in their biological and chemical makeup. Your own tooth is better than any foreign or synthetic material because they come from the body itself and therefore don’t trigger any immunological reactions.

 

This procedure is CE and FDA certified, eliminates the need for other bone replacement materials and is also used in our practice.
