What is a dental implant that lasts for 100 years? Implant is a Titanium piece with biologic specifications. It means it is compatible with body texture and it is very resistance against oxygen, acid and corrosion. Titanium causes no allergy in body so, foreign objects can’t influence on body by it. Titanium is compatible with human body.

Manufacturing implant by laser
Using laser for manufacturing implants has begun about 20 years ago. This is the most ideal method for producing implants in the world. In fact, tiny micron canals that are created by laser on implant surface create unique specifications.
The role of laser micro-canals on implant surface
These canals provide a very strong and impermeable barrier around the implant against microbes to improve Crestal bone health around the implant.
Result: this specification will prevent bone atrophy around the implant in long terms.
Achievements for patient: long lasting implants (until the end of life) even for 100 years in comparison with regular implants!!!
The role of laser surfaces in implant stability and connections:
Laser surfaces have uniform and homogenous levels and because of micro-canals; they can stimulate fibroblasts and osteoblasts cells to create very strong connections around the implant (unlike the regular dental implants with selective or random bone forming around the dental implant).
Results: faster connections between implant and jaw bone (rapid osteo-integration and as a result faster delivery of fixed prosthesis to the patient). This type of implant is recommended for patients who have less time for treatment such as travelers to abroad or very busy managers with important meetings.
Regular implants versus laser implant technologies:
Other implants have acid etched or sandblasted surface or so on. In this case, they can randomly attract fibroblasts or osteoblasts. On the other hand, contact surface of bone and implant depends on cells landing surface. Therefore, the connection between bone (hard texture) and gum (soft texture) in regular implants will not create a very strong barrier and excellent adhesive of gum around the implant. But, integration of gum and bone can be seen in the best level in implants with laser technology.
Achievements for patients: the results of a 3-year study showed that bone atrophy around the regular implants is more than 70% (equal to 1.35mm) but it was about 0.46mm around laser implants. So, bone atrophy around laser implants is less than the other types.
Dr. Sojodi’s cosmetic and implant professional clinic:
This clinic is the first and only center in Iran that is able to guarantee long lasting implants for life with international warranty to patients. This warranty is provided services in more than 85 countries across the world. So, in the case of any problem for patients with laser implants, they have no concerns about receiving these services.
Needed time for fusion of the dental implant in lower jaw is about 3 months and in upper jaw is about 5 months but this is varied for different people. For example; in some cases when sinus lift is done for upper jaw; it is recommended to wait for 30 days and be sure about the bone density to provide a better condition for dental implant.
Due to fast growth of bacteria inside the mouth; we always have to observe oral health points. The growth of bacteria around dental implant crown is faster than natural teeth. So, it is highly recommended to recognize bacteria aggregation by dental expert regular examinations. Then, dental expert can take immediate actions to solve this problem. It is worth noting that dental implant is more sensitive to bacteria aggregations and unnatural pressures compared with natural teeth.
Dental implant in growing children needs prosthesis restoration in toothless areas. Trauma and hypodontia are the common anomalies causing congenital edentulous. Usual treatment for such patients before completion of bone and teeth growth is removable prosthesis. However, alveolar bone depletion and some periodontal and secondary tooth decay are the main problems for such patients because of using removable prosthesis.
In the case of lost tooth; the gum rolls back and surrounding bone depletes so a severe damage will occur for adjacent teeth and will lead to tooth decay. Some of the other problems for ignoring dental implant treatments include problems while talking or eating, dislocation of teeth, headache and so on. Another negative result of not having dental implant is jaw bone defects and damages.
