Immediate Loading Implantology Today
What is Strategic Implantology ?
The term Strategic Implant is a registered trademark for the implants of the Simpladent Group. The term “basal implantology” first appeared around 1999; a time of breakthrough in modern dental implantology: immediate loading technology was developed. It simultaneously solved the problem of low bone supply and enabled patients with diabetes and other medical issues to receive safe treatment.
Each implant is fixated in at least two locations in cortical bone. This type of bone provides a high level of mineralization and stability and low metabolism. It can be immediately loaded and practically does not resorb throughout a patient’s lifetime. Bone augmentation, sinus lift, bone transplants and waiting periods become unnecessary. With the help of the Strategic Implant we are able to successfully supply treatment even in cases of severe bone atrophy. The patient receives a beautiful smile within just a few days.
“Thousands of patients have been treated globally with over 1.000,000 placed implants.”
advantages of Strategic Implantology
The Immediate Loading technology has been continually improved throughout the last decade in the Simpladent research center in cooperation with Dr. Ihde Dental AG. Further information can be found on www.ihde.com and www.strategic-implant.com. The training of specialized implantologists is exclusively conducted by the International Implant Foundation, Munich (www.implantfoundation.org).
For the maxilla-facial field Simpladent GmbH has also developed a revolutionary treatment concept in cooperation with maxillo-facial department of the Belgrade University (Prof. V. Konstantinovic/ Prof. Lazic). These two experts are the pioneers and leading specialists in the placement of lateral and screwable strategic implants in the frontal bone, mastoid, and glabella.
Of course the developments do not stop here. Simpladent’s strategic implants are currently the most advanced implant types available and in use around the world.
Placement of the strategic Implant
Inspection of the oral cavity and x-ray examination are done by the treatment provider. Subsequently the treatment can begin. As a rule this occurs immediately since the precautions and additional steps necessary in conventional implants (pre-operative improvement of oral hygiene, periodontal pre-treatment, etc) are not applicable for the Strategic Implant ®, if the affected teeth are simply extracted.
On the day of surgery the affected teeth are extracted and the implants placed straight away. The prosthetic treatment begins right after the implants are inserted. After three days at the latest the first fixed bridge is fixed and the new teeth can be used for eating, smiling, speaking!

Indications and Contra-indications
|Indications for strategic implants||Contraindications|
Patient had a full adentia on the upper and partial on the lower jaw. Pronounced elongation of all teeth. 9 years after using dentures Simpladent implants were placed and fixed bridges successfully installed within three days.
This patient had just lost the bridges in the upper jaw. All remaining teeth and roots were removed. Only 48 hours later the patient was already equipped with fixed teeth and able to eat everything. 18 month later the first metal-acrylic bridge was replaced (on her request) by a metal-to-ceramic restoration.
