Torsten Jemt: Long-term clinical documentation on dental implants
- Bone remodeling
- History of osseointegration
- Research & science
The lecture gives insight in implant related dentistry over a long-term follow-up period of over 25 years with over 9000 patients treated and 32000 placed implants. Video part 1 reviews implant-, protocol-, maintenance and patient-related topics. The change from machined to treated implanted surface reduced the early implant failure rate considerably, mainly in maxilla situations. Video part 2 focuses on experiences with peri-implantitis and discusses impact of peri-implantitis on general health. The lecture concludes that only long-term follow-up can provide an understanding of time dependent biological and mechanical parameters with a low incidence or slow progression.
