Bertil Friberg: The Brånemark Clinic - current research and clinical implications
- Review of scientific evidence of various inluencing parameters on bone loss
- Bone loss for implants placed in the symphysical region seems to be higher
- Osteoporosis is not a contraindication for implant treatment, but the bone has to be handled adequately
- Implant treatment need from sports traumatic injuries in a youth patient group is increasing
- Marina del Rey 2014 symposium presentation
Based on extensive literature review and clinical resarch at the Gothenburg Brånemark clinic over 3 decades, Dr Friberg is reviewing causes for bone loss in implant treatment, in single, partial and edentulous situations, and discussing the influence of traumatized and ankylotic teeth, implant surface and design, augmentation procedures, bone anatomy, surgical techniques, prosthetic components, cement excess, soft tissue involvement, patient systemic health, behaviour and compliance risk indicators. The lecture highlights treatment options in the posterior maxilla, such as inlay and onlay grafts, the use of short, tilted and Zygomatic implants, and situations for tooth-connected implants, and their clinical success evidence. There is controversial discussion about the causes of peri-implantitis, if more an infection type of inflammation, or a foreign body response of the jaw bone.
