Implants have been used in dentistry since the 1960′s but it is only in the last 10 years that major advances have made their placement reliable. We use 3 systems to allow us to have a range of choices to suit the clinical need and the patients pocket.
Implants with the longest history of comfort and function are those that reside in healthy, clean mouths. Your own implants should be maintained in healthy condition by a combination of excellent oral hygiene practice at home and regular visits to the dental hygienist. During the early years you will commonly be asked back annually to check the implants by means of an x-ray.
World wide there are now more than 2000 implant systems.
