Science

Particularly experienced implantologists selected by the study management of the Academy of Periointegration may support the AP's research on durability of dental implants by documenting and submitting their treatment cases.

The study team of Prof. Per-Ingvar Branemark (the "father of modern dental implantology") and Prof. Marc Nevins (Harvard School of Dental Medicine) evaluates radiological documentation before as well as three, six and twelve months after implantation. Such documentation shows the healing stages of the implant and the redesign of the surrounding bone until periointegration. Any follow-ups after two, five, ten and fifteen years show the long-term survival rates. Documentation of implant treatment is done in a time-saving and uncomplicated manner via online forms within the closed user area of the Academy website.
