Oral implantology refers to surgical procedures aimed at functional rehabilitation of patients using dental implants, i.e., metal elements surgically implanted into the upper and lower jaw. Implants come in various forms and can be implanted in different positions and by different techniques. Currently, most implants are made of titanium.

Implants embedded in bones are incorporated through the bone regeneration process resulting in a strong implant – bone bond. Thus integrated implants are ready to hold and bear the prosthetic works – bridges and crowns.

Titanium dental implant

Advantages of implant placement

  • Good esthetic and functional stability
  • Short adjustment period
  • Simplicity of implanting
  • Faster rehabilitation and possibility of early loading, if the primary stability has been preserved, within a 2 to 4-week period
  • Technically simpler manner of fabricating a fixed dental prostheses compared to skeleton (“Wisil”) dentures with attachments, telescopic and custom-made crowns
  • Possibility of maintaining a better hygiene and achieving a higher level of psycho-social self-confidence
  • Prophylactic and therapeutic effect upon parodontium of natural teeth
  • Cost effectiveness due to the longevity of teeth

Goals

To offer assurance based on the knowledge and experience we posses.

Titanium dental implant

The success rate of the implants placed by Prim. Dr. Branislav Stojanović since the first one embedded in 1997 until 2014 in the prosthodontic phase stands at 98% for the lower and 96% for the upper jaw, followed and statistically processed at a decentennial level.

We have worked on a multitude of implanting systems and have had no significant departure in the successfulness percentage, as published in our papers and studies. Successfulness of implants does not depend directly upon manufacturers and brand names aggressively advertized but primarily on the type, quality and quantity of the bone, implant thread and, certainly, for the most part, on implantologist’s assessment, experience and implanting technique he opts for.

If you have lost one or more teeth and you find yourself refraining from smiling, even eating in public, fearing that your denture might slip or fall out, you should consider having dental implants.

  • To smile with confidence,
  • To eat whatever you want and when you want,
  • Talk and laugh without embarrassment.

If you wear full or partial denture its removal and disposal of glass during the night may be impractical and uncomfortable, which is why more to consider implant treatment.

Early loading of dental implant

Early loading of dental implant

We started tackling the issue of early implant loading as early as 1998, when we first noticed that primarily stable implants offer greater stability and better adherence resulting in better integration in the jaw bone, which was an indicator of their ability to possibly accept load at an earlier time. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA) at the time upheld the position that implants could be loaded no sooner than three months after having been inserted into the lower jaw and after six months, in case of the upper jaw. Our experience, however indicated that implants could be loaded earlier and we started to closely follow up our patients and we eventually presented our observations and findings at numerous domestic and international gatherings. Our first experiences with early loading were published in the “Stomatolog” No.69/2002. Under the title of Screw-Cylinder Implant Loading 2 to 4 Weeks after Placement. This was, indeed, the first paper ever written by a domestic expert, documenting a possibility of early implant loading, to receive attention of his peers globally. Officially, the method of early and intermediate loading of implants was adopted only in 2004, when other authors from Europe and Serbia published and presented their supportive papers at the First Symposium of Oral Surgeons and Oral Implantologists held in Belgrade (29-30. October 2004 – The Sava Center).

Some 34 patients were included in the research, 38 to 78 years of age, who were followed up and checked over the period of 4 years. In the post-surgery phase, success rate of implants was 96%. The parameters used to measure success were stability, bone resorption around implant and changes in soft tissues (Conclusion from the paper Screw-Cylinder Implant Loading 2 to 4 Weeks after Placement “Stomatolog” No. 69/2002, Dr. Branislav Stojanović, oral surgery and implantology specialist).

Based on our experience, we concluded that there should be no strictly defined time period required between implant placement and its loading. This period primarily depends on the conditions for implant placement, type and quality of bone and the proficiency and skills of the practitioner who places implants and constructs dental appliances. We hope that we have succeeded in encouraging future implantologists and providing essential information to those who will never practice implantology. We strongly believe that patients should be informed, offered a possibility and left to freely make their own decisions. Implantology is a reality, our present and especially our future (Conclusion from the paper Screw-Cylinder Implant Loading 2 to 4 Weeks after Placement, “Stomatolog” No. 69/2002, Dr. Branislav Stojanović, oral surgery and implantology specialist).
