Who we are

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore

Around 50% of your implant patients develop peri-implant mucositis over time. About one third of all patients develop manifest periimplantitis.

ImplantSafe DR can recognize these patients and supports communication in dental hygiene. It is important to achieve maximum compliance when attending the necessary recall intervals. This can support long-term implant success, reduce forensic risks and increase delegated preventive services.

Dental implants with a systematic check-up

The success story for sustainability, implant protection and your forensic coverage

Dental implants give their wearers a new attitude to life, more self-confidence in their appearance and confidence when biting down. No wonder that more and more patients are opting for implant-supported dentures despite the private costs of approx. 1,250 to 3,000 euros per implant (www.dginet.de).

According to estimates by the German Society of Implantology, the number of implants placed annually in Germany alone has risen from around 380,000 to around 1.3 million over the past 20 years (DGI press release dated November 30, 2018).

An implant is lost every four minutes

Periimplantitis on the rise

Around 87% of younger seniors state that they are very satisfied or satisfied with their implants. However, despite considerable success rates, an implant is lost every four minutes, i.e. in 140,000 cases per year, according to experts (Wagner 2010). One of the most common causes of implant loss is undetected inflammation and tissue degradation: On average, periimplant mucositis was found in approximately 47% of implant patients and in almost 30% of implants (Lee et al. 2017). Periimplantitis was present in almost 20% of implant patients and in around 9% of implants, as shown in a recent meta-analysis (Lee et al. 2017).

In the new classification of peri-implantitis, the authors draw the following evidence-based conclusions, among others (Schwarz et al. 2018)

  • Periimplantitis is a pathological condition of the tissues around implants. It is characterized by inflammation of the periimplant soft tissue and progressive bone resorption.
  • The onset of periimplantitis can occur at an early stage during aftercare.
  • Compared to periodontitis, periimplantitis can progress more quickly and is usually more difficult to treat.
  • There is strong evidence that patients with chronic periodontitis, poor plaque control and a lack of regular oral hygiene after implant placement have an increased risk of peri-implantitis
The personalized prevention plan with confirmation of consent 

The best protection against peri-implantitis

The best protection against peri-implantitis is the early detection of collagenolytic degradation processes on the implant. The general rule is: the earlier a hidden inflammation is detected, the easier it is to treat. And the earlier the affected implant or periodontal areas are treated specifically and professionally, the greater the chance of recovery. Therefore, all possibilities for early detection and prophylaxis should be used in order to be able to treat complications or implant loss in good time. However, it is not possible to distinguish healthy from diseased peri-implant tissue by probing or measuring the pocket depth alone.

Supplement existing diagnostics with ImplantSafe DR
The aMMP-8 technology with the ImplantSafe Digital Reader System, with its two to three times higher sensitivity than the standard procedure 'Bleeding on Probing' (BOP), offers a meaningful quantitative assessment option for the important progression parameter of periodontal 'grading'.

With ImplantSafe® DR, you can quickly quantify the risk of peri-implantitis and its progression for each individual implant. There is no need to wait for a test result from a laboratory.

The immediate digital evaluation enables quick visualization of the value and thus supports the sensitization and motivation for prevention of patients with dental implants. 

Confirmation of consent in the prevention plan
The confirmation of consent developed with leading lawyers gives you the necessary forensic protection and shows the patient the importance of participating in recommended prevention intervals.
