Finger on the technological pulse with partnerships
Here at INTEGRA, we find intensive communicative exchange with colleagues from a wide variety of fields very enriching. That includes not only healthcare professionals, but also other experts from dental laboratories and manufacturing companies as well as specialist speakers. In the future, we will keep striving for further partnerships so as to keep our finger on the technological pulse for our patients.
PATENT™ PREMIUM PARTNER
THE SWISS PIONEERS IN CERAMIC IMPLANTS
INTEGRA is a proud premium partner of Patent™ – the Swiss pioneer in zirconia implant technology. The Patent™ implant system developed from the desire to improve the existing dental implant technology and herald in a new era of metal-free dental prosthetic solutions. Patent™ is currently the best documented ceramic implant system in the world. At almost 97%, the healing success rate of Patent™ implants – the product of their special surface properties – is comparable to that of metallic implants.
There is one decisive difference, however: Patent™ dental implants are made of a biocompatible, well tolerated ceramic called zirconia. They are therefore 100% free of metal, suitable for people with allergies, durable and highly aesthetic. In short: the ceramic dental implants used at INTEGRA feel, look and function just like natural teeth – plus they come with a life-long material guarantee.
Dental prostheses of the highest calibre! At INTEGRA, our oral surgeons advise and treat patients drawing on experience from the insertion of thousands of ceramic implants. INTEGRA decided to specialise in this type of dental prosthesis based on its high biocompatibility – including among people with allergies and the chronically ill – as well as the long-term success rate.

OFFICIAL PATENT™ TRAINING CENTRE
WE PASS ON OUR EXPERTISE: INTEGRA IMPLANTOLOGISTS TRAIN AND INSTRUCT
As an exclusive training centre for Patent™ ceramic implants, we train and instruct dentists in the use of the trendsetting implant technology here at our INTEGRA Academy. It’s no coincidence that Patent™ is now viewed as the new benchmark in dental implantology – both the production processes and product characteristics are very impressive. As one of the few manufacturers specialised in long-lasting and high-quality zirconia implants, Patent™ produces world-class aesthetic and functional dental prostheses.
Our experienced, highly qualified oral surgeons and implantologists pass on their expertise to the next generation of dentists and specialists in holistic dentistry at our university teaching practice at INTEGRA in Luxembourg. We are delighted about the exclusive title of Patent™ training centre and are looking forward to passing on our expertise.
Certified CleanImplant practice
Not just sterile, but clean
Does sterile also mean perfectly clean? The manufacturer-independent, internationally recognised CleanImplant Foundation with its headquarters in Berlin has set itself the goal of verifying the degree of cleanness of dental implants and implantologists’ quality standards. The CleanImplant seal is awarded to those dental practices and implant systems in a position to uphold this extremely high standard for their patients on a permanent basis. The objective is to protect patients from avoidable risks with severe consequences resulting from contaminated dental implants. The cleanness of the implant surface is a decisive factor in the healing process.
Both INTEGRA itself and the implant system it uses from Patent™ – one of very few implant manufacturers – have been awarded the CleanImplant certification and guarantee dental implantations of highest quality.
FIRST-CLASS TREATMENTS ARE BASED ON ONGOING RESEARCH
INTEGRA IS A TEACHING PRACTICE FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF LUXEMBOURG
Research is of great importance at INTEGRA. Here in our teaching practice for the University for Digital Technologies in Medicine and Dentistry Luxembourg, we are always on the lookout for even more detailed knowledge, more precise techniques and gentler methods. All because we want to offer our patients the very best treatments possible and outstanding service.
In addition, as a university teaching practice, we enjoy taking on the responsible and thrilling task of showing students what they have learned in theory in practice and introducing them a bit more to the world of biological dentistry. At the same time, we benefit from the collegial, scientific exchange with the university’s lecturers and other teaching practices – with the aim of being able to offer our patients outstanding solutions for each and every individual treatment.
CERTIFIED PERIOPREVENTION® CENTRE
ORAL IMMUNE SYSTEM AND MONITORED ORAL HEALTH
INTEGRA is always one step ahead: we employ oral biomarker technology uniting the expertise of medicine and dentistry to reduce the risk of silent inflammations. As the only certified Perioprevention® centre in Luxembourg, we identify inflammation processes at an early stage and are thus in a position to counteract them with treatments immediately so as to avoid periodontal diseases developing wherever possible and boost oral immunocompetence.
Oral health is an important component in keeping the entire body healthy, especially in these times of COVID-19. This is because the mouth is not only the entry barrier for coronavirus and avian flu strains, but also their breeding ground. An intact oral immune system helps prevent the spread of viruses and tends to lessen the progression of illnesses.
“A healthy oral cavity always makes a better immune barrier than an unhealthy one.” Prof. Dr. R. Frankenberger, President of the German Society of Dentistry and Oral Medicine
As a certified Perioprevention® centre, we pursue the following goals:
- Maintaining the natural teeth in a mouth free from infections.
- Increasing oral immunocompetence and thereby limiting the spread of viruses in the oral region.
- Minimising silent inflammations in order to preserve general health.
- Protecting dental implants against infections.
Our holistic and biological dentists will be happy to tell you more about the early diagnosis of periodontal diseases.
CAVITAU® PARTNER PRACTICE
BONE DENSITY MEASUREMENTS WITHOUT RADIATION
CaviTAU® is an imaging process for determining bone density and quality in the jaw region that we are pleased to employ in our practice. There is no comparable alternative for the safe and reliable localisation of interference fields in the jaw or assessment of the bone density prior to implantation. X-ray procedures entail exposure to radiation, which poses health risks. The ultrasonic applications with CaviTAU® do not involve radiation and are therefore completely harmless.
CaviTAU® provides us with answers to the following questions in the diagnostics phase:
- How stable is the jawbone at the planned implant site?
- Are there any interference fields in the jaw such as silent inflammations of the jawbone (so-called NICOs)?
The dentist uses this imaging procedure in combination with other diagnostic methods to decide, for example, whether bone augmentation is necessary prior to the implantation and to localise interference fields for subsequent removal.
