Implant dentistry is rapidly becoming the standard of care for edentulism. Scientists and researchers have developed extensive knowledge about the Osseointegration phenomena, which is a biological response of the body to the titanium. The Osseointegration phenomena allows the implant to become a permanent part of the jaw bone.
Today, there is excellent clinical documentation on the results of treatments based on oral implants. There is a consensus that the mean success rate is over 98.5% at the 5-year follow up. Even if the follow-up period is substantially prolonged from 5 years to 15-20 years, clinical results remain very high. There is an implant survival rate of 87-99% and prostheses survival rate of 84-100%.
