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.
Dental implant should be performed by an implant expert and prosthesis expert and/or gum surgeon. Of course, general dentist can also perform dental implant if he/she has passed special implant training courses and has received its certificate.
The impacts of Beta Blockers and Heartburn drugs on implant treatment According to American researchers’ reports on implant patients; we can conclude that heartburn drugs have great influence on implant success rate. Based on the dentists, the percentage of success in dental implant has a direct relation with healing procedure and compatibility of implant with patient’s jaw bone.
Patients who had radiotherapy are not suitable candidates for dental implant. They have to refer to special dentistry centers with enough experiments in such cases. It has been recommended for these patients to have dental implant with 1 year delay but there are some earlier methods in some private centers with good results. The expected success for these patients is about 10% less than the patients without any history of radiotherapy. On the other hand, it is not necessary for patients with dental implant to remove the implant before radiotherapy if osteo-integration process is completed.
Increased age of toothless patients and also in some cases serious depletion of jaw bone has made it very difficult for deciding about dental implant treatment. On the other hand, most of the patients are eager to have dental implants despite of severe jaw bone depletion and this is the most important challenge for dentists. Removable dental implant-based prostheses have reduced such problems but patients are not satisfied with removable dental prosthesis.
