Some Facts and Myths about Dental Implants!

August 22, 2019 by Bradjohnson  

FACT:  The Doctors does not require any kind of the formal surgical training on humans for placing the dental implants.

However, one implant manufacturer in specific holds the educational seminars for the doctors that are willing to place the Dental Implant Tucson above the course of single weekend. This is right, in only 2 days, the doctors are given the certificate for surgical training that states that they have the formal training in the surgical implant dentistry so hence may place the dental implants in the human subject. Unluckily, the course even does not train such Dentist Tucson on human subjects, instead on the plastic jawbones.


FACT: The government of US does not need any approval from FDA for the dental implant fixture for being marketed to professional community.

The government of United States has the governing body which oversees various biomedical devices and the potential implementation in the medical as well as dental community. When for instance, the dental implant meets some specific criteria that is necessary for the surgical placement in the human body which is based on some prior submissions by different manufacturers that have also tested the device, the governing body will also be able to grant 510K clearance to implant manufacturer. Moreover, 510K clearance permits dental implant manufacturers with other kind of the biomedical device manufacturers that could also market their device devoid of need for prior testing on animal or on human! If other biomedical device are introduced previously with the similar intent, the literature for initial product may also be used that could formalize the clearance of 510K.



FACT: The Dental Implant takes just little time.

The competition about dental implant market is considered to be fierce, and subsequent to the patents that have been expired on well tested devices that have proven to be much suitable for the human use, few manufacturers of implant will duplicate design of such devices. The Dental Implant manufacturers look for the spot in competitive dental implant market that will copy design of the implant which has an expired patent that also save for some small change. These implants done by Family Dentist Tucson are known as the clones and they are marketed to the dentists at much significantly reduced fee. However, in few of the cases the implant clones have just NO clinical documentation that could substantiate the claims of the manufacturer. In fact, such companies use the literature which is well provided by implant manufacturer from where they are copying!


FACT: The Implant manufacturers are now introducing some new designs in the market with incorrect claims


For keeping up with the new implant manufacturers they have better and overall high rate of success, few of the companies will copy specific portion of competitor's implant and will also claim that the results are quite much similar with lately added portion. Conceptually it also makes sense, however in many such cases the combination of the design features are mainly accountable for implant manufacturers that has enhanced rate of success.
