What about so called “at risk” patients (such as smokers or those suffering diabetes or other diseases)? Can they receive immediate care with the Strategic® Implant?
- Yes, anytime. The use of conventional 2-stage screw implants is always fraught with the likelihood of additional, unpredictable treatment steps and surgery. This is a burden for patients. Moreover, there is an ever present risk of peri-implantitis, a serious infection for which there is currently no effective treatment.
- These problems do not occur with the Simpladent® treatment method. Only one surgical procedure is necessary, the implants consist of a polished single piece, and the aftercare takes place immediately. Cases of peri-implantitis are not known.
