The market offers a number of different implant systems, but just a handful of manufacturers dominate the market. After decades of competition, all these systems are quite well developed. Nevertheless, minor differences do exist.
Before an implant can be inserted, it is mandatory for all inflammation to be treated. Moreover, the foundation needs to be completely rehabilitated if required.
There should be no periodontitis, poor root canal treatments, gum inflammation (gingivitis), leaky fillings, or caries. All this preliminary work should be tackled before actual implant placement. A reputable implantologist informs the patient about these work steps.Implantology
