Successful Personal Statements in the Area of Implantology

Implantology Success

It is important to be aware that the success or failure of implants depends on the health of the person receiving it, drugs which impact the chances of osseointegration and the health of the tissues in the mouth. The amount of stress that will be put on the implant and fixture during normal function is also evaluated. Planning the position and number of implants is key to the long-term health of the prosthetic since biomechanical forces created during chewing can be significant. The position of implants is determined by the position and angle of adjacent teeth, lab simulations or by using computed tomography with CAD/CAM simulations and surgical guides called stents. The prerequisites to long-term success of osseointegrated dental implants are healthy bone and gingiva. Since both can atrophy after tooth extractionpre-prosthetic procedures, such as sinus lifts or gingival grafts, are sometimes required to recreate ideal bone and gingiva.

The final prosthetic can be either fixed, where a person cannot remove the denture or teeth from their mouth or removable, where they can remove the prosthetic. In each case an abutment is attached to the implant fixture. Where the prosthetic is fixed, the crown, bridge or denture is fixed to the abutment with either lag-screws or cement. Where the prosthetic is removable, a corresponding adapter is placed in the prosthetic so that the two pieces can be secured together.

The risks and complications related to implant therapy are divided into those that occur during surgery (such as excessive bleeding or nerve injury), those that occur in the first six months (such as infection and failure to osseointegrate) and those that occur long-term (such as peri-implantitis and mechanical failures). In the presence of healthy tissues, a well integrated implant with appropriate biomechanical loads can have long term success rates of 93 to 98 percent for the fixture and 10 to 15 year lifespans for the prosthetic teeth.

The Advance of Implantology

Over the course of the last few years, I have noticed increasing interest in the area of Implantology with exciting new fellowship positions being created. 

We are living through most exciting times in dentistry and oral health care to a great extent because of the advent of dental implants. While Dental implants have been utilized by mankind for thousands of years, it is only recently that they have achieved widespread acceptance from the profession at large.

This has resulted in extensive academic investigations and scientific testing which was brought to the fore by the ground-breaking work of Professor Branemark and Andre Schroder. Implants have become more and more mainstream since the Toronto meeting in 1983 when Professor Branemark released his extensive research findings to specialist dentists. Since that time there has been a rapid growth in the use of dental implants in all areas of the world.

We have now reached the point where, in many situations, dental implants are the first choice restorative tool for the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth. They provide predictable and aesthetic long-term solutions for an increasing number of patients around the world. Worldwide professional view of implants Dental implants are used in many countries world-wide to facilitate dental rehabilitation. If one consults the research literature, one can find articles from dental schools and universities from nearly all countries around the world.

This breadth of research on different designs of implants and manufacturers of implants has increased our knowledge base, not only about specific implants but also about different types of treatment.
