A history of implants in South Africa

1 Rating(s).


Posted on By Howard Gluckman In Implants

Our practice has been running for close to 50 years and I am proud to be associated with it since 1998 together with Dr Les Lazarus who started the practice. I am now together with Dr Deon De Villiers who is a prosthodontist for the last 10 years. This case shows the implants through the ages in south africa with the original cement retained abutments( not cement retained crowns )which were cemented into the implant itself. To the microvents which were a fantastic implant and the branemark, Sterri-oss, Xive, Nobel Active etc. All of which are still going strong many years on.

Howard, congratulations. You have ran a long way of the implantology...
Machined surfaces also worked well.

Howie. Precise fit and occlusion are important. Quality Dentistry works and will stand the test of time! Even in South Africa :-). Really nice to see a case like this. Thank you for sharing. Chuck

This case is amazing as everything has worked from the oldest to the newest. i think what we see with failures is as Swhartz-arad terms cluster failures in single patients. In other words some patients are prone to implant failure while others are totally resistant and anything works.
