George Zarb: Reflection of the past and outlook to the future
- Immediate implant placement
- Reconstructive surgery
- History of osseointegration
This programmatic lecture gives an overview in the history of implantology and how far implantolgy has come today, and what benefits it can provide for patients who from both a functional and an esthetic perspective could not be suitably treated before. Osseointegration is a time-dependent healing process whereby clinically asymptomatic and rigid endosseous fixation of a specific alloplastic material is achieved, and maintained during loading. Today, modern dental implants can provide rapid healing and immediate loading protocols and implant treatment is a reliable treatment solution with low failure rates which can be considered standard of care.
