Chapter 5 :
Artificial dental implant system?
When you read this article, you should be a dental implant expert! Let us further analyze the market and products! In fact, in the world, there should be more than 200 to 300 brands of implants, which are represented by Taiwan There should also be 100 kinds, so the question most frequently answered by dental implant consultants is which implant brand is the best? American, German, Nordic, Italian, Spanish, Taiwanese, and even mainland China, you can think of Both!
In fact, there is another name for dental implants, which is " artificial tooth root ", which means that when your own tooth root cannot be used, you can change to a new "tooth root". Use artificial implants to replace tooth roots that you can no longer use.
On the left is the root of the tooth, and on the right is the implant; the two look very similar.
"There implant and decided to use that brand of explants, are a very easy decision for everybody! I hope this article can lead you in the right way."
From the perspective of a consultant, it is very simple to choose an implant with a permanent history and a high success rate. It sounds simple, but what about the details? The success and failure of dental implants can be honestly seen from X-rays.
As long as the bone around the implant is not lowered, the implant will not fail. But how to prevent the bone from shrinking is the most difficult part. So a simple conclusion; as long as the bone around the implant is not lowered, it can be used for a lifetime.. ........This is not just what you want to see, but also a long-term picture that doctors want to see.
But like everything around you, just like everything is impossible for a lifetime. All things have their deadlines. The biggest difference is that some things can be used for a long time, but some are not durable.
Market analysis of artificial dental implants
At present, there are the most long-term clinical research endorsements, mainly by Nobel Biocare and Straumann (ITI), the world's top two dental implant manufacturers. In addition, there is another advantage of Astra (Densply) using large companies... ...Parts. A certain aspect of dental implants is very similar to that of automobiles. Sometimes when dental implant parts need to be replaced, corresponding tools are needed. If you use a relatively unpopular implant system, you cannot find the original clinic to solve it or stop production. That's a big embarrassment, so when you choose implants, you should pay attention to how long this company has been out. Generally speaking, because Nordic companies have a longer history, more investment, and more stable products, the price is more expensive. Currently the cheapest implant is made in Taiwan, but its long-term tracking is indeed a problem.
Artificial tooth implant or artificial tooth root is like a tree, the most important part is that it is at the root. Because of the strong roots, the upper structure can survive all the wind and rain.

1. Straumann 士卓曼 (ITI)
Artificial tooth root or implant is the root of a tree. The bones are the surrounding soil. A good implant requires good bones. The quality of the bones cannot be changed, but the surface treatment of the implant can be changed. Just like the root of a tree is in the soil As with growth, the first contact with the bone is the surface treatment of the implant. So when you inquire, focus on the surface treatment first.
The surface treatment has everything from RBT, HA, HF to SLA (different chemical and physical treatment methods). The surface treatment will determine the success rate of 70% of the implant, and the other 30% is from the design of the implant. (But the design of dental implants is the easiest to counterfeit. Made in Taiwan, China, or Korea, they can easily look like implants made in Switzerland or Sweden.)
When you do enough research on the Internet, you will definitely see the word "SLA". When you search for "SLA ITI" , there will be 36,1000 results. "SLA" is the abbreviation of sandblasting and acid melting. It was developed by the Swiss Straumann team & ITI. Later, the two company teams were combined, and we are collectively called Straumann. Its surface treatment method cannot be replicated. SLA's osseointegration is the most famous in the world. Time is what every implant brand wants to simulate! The success rate of the combination of bone and implant is not a secret, but the actual practice is not disclosed by the Swiss. When you are not sure which implant surface is better, you can consider choosing ITI or similar surface deal with.
最近 Straumann 公司決定將材料改從原本的材料 (4級鈦) 改變為 85%鈦和15%氧化鋯， 有些醫生覺得，這個新的配方增加了強度，但在某一些牙齒位置可能降低了成功率。 此時可以考慮使用其他的品牌。
2. Nobel 諾保科
來自瑞典的諾保科創立於1981年，身為植牙系統的開山始祖，植體累積了相當多的研究報告。 它的尺寸剛好跟 ITI (有一點不一樣， Nobel 直徑 (3.75、4.0、4.3mm), ITI 這直徑為 (3.3、4.1、4.8mm) 所以可以選擇更精準、更適合您的尺寸。但是有一些醫生覺得他的表面處理 (TiUnite)並不是那麼完美，可能會減低他的成功率。 使用這個品牌的醫生必須要慎重地挑選案例，在手術的時候必須要執行到完美。
3. Zimmer (奧生)
Zimmer 為美國前三大植體公司, 成功率非常高，成立於1982年，代理與銷售歐美知名大廠之醫療產品,並不斷致力於引進世界先進生醫材料，以提升台灣病患之醫療品質。
4. Osstem (奧生)
日本穩坐亞洲第一大醫療器材市場，因其人工牙根的領域並沒有韓國積極，隨韓國人工牙根和斷層掃描設備的興起，日本在亞洲國家已經落後韓國。 韓國 Osstem的成功率已經可以媲美所有世界的品牌。
Usually the younger the brand
The lower the price of dental implants, but the risks?
The next thing to pay attention to is how long the history of this implant company is. For most of the manufacturers, the longer the history, the long-term collection of many clinical tracking reports, which can provide manufacturers with continuous improvement of their products and launch of new implants Design, impose rapid osseointegration, etc. When the company can't even get a 5-year follow-up report, how do you know what will happen after 10 years of implantation and the sequelae? Therefore, using younger brands does have its risks, but relatively speaking, the older the brand, the higher the price.
The following words are what Dr. Huang must report to you!
In fact, you are not the only people who have bad teeth. After you have done traditional dentures today, there may be people or clinics who are willing to do postoperative services for you, but there is no one who can do postoperative services for dental implants, except to help you with dental implants. Physician.
Believe that the clinic’s 15 years of experience, dental implants rely on the brand and the doctor’s skills and reputation. The most important thing is to let you enjoy the best "quality and post-operative services".
1. There must be some cheaper and more expensive dental implants on the market, but the things we use are absolutely high-quality,'will not lose to any clinic or hospital.
2. The things used in the clinic must be certified by the National Health Bureau, which is very important. It is not easy for any product to be certified by the Department of Health, and the verification process is also very expensive and time-consuming. However, it really protects your health.
3. The things used in clinics must be the best in the same series. There are more than 300 implant companies in Taiwan. The clinics only use the first and second brands in the industry, and will not use mainland products and South Korea. Goods, just like Switzerland, except for Rolex, its high technology and surface treatment are the only things we believe in.
4. The bone meal used in the clinic and the periosteum used to accelerate bone growth must be of the highest quality and top quality, and supported by literature. Since the opening of the clinic, it is not the best and will not be used. These are all costs.
5. The decoration of the clinic is simple and simple, maintains a clean and comfortable space, emphasizes attentive service, and introduces the most innovative high-tech equipment, so that you can find your second spring in a safe medical environment.
6. All medical procedures must be in accordance with teaching textbooks and years of clinical experience, and will never be opportunistic.
7. The clinic will definitely be responsible for our works, not only verbal guarantees, but also a five-year written warranty. Clear details, and the instalment system of how much fees are charged at what stage of the treatment, will not collect the full amount at once and follow up Careless treatment will never add any additional costs in the process, just want to give you the best postoperative service.
8. You have to trust the doctor who is just learning dental implants, or the dean who has many years of experience in dental implant technology and has been invited to give lectures many times a year. I believe this choice should not be difficult!
9. Thank you for giving the opportunity to listen to our explanation. Finally, I want to let you understand that the health of your teeth is more important to us than anyone else.
I just recieved the best present today, I got a compliment from a patient. after extracting her tooth, In the middle of extraction, she said she want to tell me a story. After the extraction, she told me the story about how she cried in the chair at the previous clinic.
After the story, she cried and I cried. she told me she will be my patient forever. I feel a lot of pressure, the case is only half way done. i will keep it up. Sometimes, i feel tired after surgery, but it is days like today, that i am proud to be a doctor.
1. 植牙費用 & 價錢取決於植牙的位置
上顎前牙區 (門牙，側門牙及虎牙)，是所有手術區中最複雜的．這裡的骨頭的密度並不高，為了達到術後的成功，植體表面處理的品質及技術是非常重要的．表面處理會影響到未來植體周圍的骨頭高度.一旦未來骨頭萎縮,周圍的牙齦也會跟著萎縮，在美觀上就會有瑕疵。全世界有很多植體是可以應用在前牙區的，但真正能夠用在東方人的口腔內其實不多，由於先天條件上東方人的骨頭不論是在量或質都沒有西方人的優良。在現有的文獻報告都指出: 東方人的前牙區骨頭較薄且密度較鬆， 需要最優秀的醫生以及最優秀的植體。
Everyone will feel helpless when making a choice for dental implants in the aesthetic area. With so many implant options on the market and so many dentists during visits, how should they make the decision? If you are not sure how to choose. It is recommended to discuss with your dentist. You can consider Nobel Active as an artificial root in the anterior tooth area. A customized abutment to achieve the best angle you want, and finally an all-ceramic crown. To achieve the most ideal and exquisite works. When you are not sure which brand to choose is the best choice, it is recommended that you use a brand with high credibility, although the price is relatively higher than other brands. But the quality will be more guaranteed. Hope the above introduction can help you Making decisions becomes easier.
PS In life, price and quality are always contradictory!
在人工牙根 (人工植牙)及上方的牙冠之間，有一個很重要的零件我們稱之為基台 (Abutment). 前牙區不能夠像後牙區用一般的基台 (在高度上及角度上沒有太多的選擇)，前牙區的基台他必須要是客製化的，也就是說因為每個人前牙的角度都不一樣,每一個基台都需要量身訂作才有辦法達到正確的角度．客製化的零件會比一般的基台還要昂貴． 如果患者希望將牙齒外觀做到最好，可以考慮選擇全瓷冠來代替傳統的牙冠，全瓷冠在前牙區是最有可能達到您所想要較完美的效果．
3. Prices & fees depend on
Control of disinfection quality!
Another important point that everyone cares about but is often overlooked is the disinfection quality of the equipment. Generally, most of what we see is the decoration of the clinic, but what we don't see is the control of disinfection and hygiene behind it.
Another thing that we may not know is that the disinfection process is very manpower-intensive. If the international standard is to be met, the average daily workload in a general clinic is ten hours. But in general clinics, these exceed the workload of staff and nurses. So in our clinic, we have specially hired a disinfection staff, she does not follow the doctor, she does not register, her only job is to clean and disinfect your equipment!
Clinics with high disinfection quality control may charge higher than other clinics for another reason; like all sophisticated tools, they are very afraid of high temperature and pressure. However, if you want to achieve the effect of sterilization, high temperature, high pressure and time are necessary. In other words, the tool consumption rate of high-quality clinics is much higher than that of ordinary clinics.
If you can give you a small suggestion here, you should not spend on luxurious decoration, but spend on complete disinfection to ensure your health is absolutely worth it.
Canada is a country with the highest requirements for disinfection and hygiene in the world. In a certain way, Taiwan can follow him. Relevant health departments in Canada will periodically check clinics. In the three long hours, they will strictly and carefully check every corner. To confirm that the clinic has disinfection capabilities to protect their residents. In the picture is a link to an article about the disinfection and hygiene of dentistry in Canada (in fact, it is a bit like a book).
4. Denture designer
If you have enough time, please allow me to share more information with you. The dentist does not make dentures . After your doctor takes the tooth model for you, it will be sent to a place to make your dentures. Taiwan is commonly known as a laboratory, but for our clinic, he is not a technician, he is a designer.
I can be very proud to say that we have the best designers in the world. It has been almost 20 years since I touched the teeth (1994-now). I have worked with the top designers in Taiwan, the United States and Canada, but he is the most talented and dedicated I have ever seen.
He is not very talkative and very quiet. But his hands expressed everything for him. His pursuit of perfect personality and talent for aesthetics really makes my and your works more impeccable, but like most of the beautiful things in life, he is more expensive, really much more expensive than others. But to me, every penny he charges is worth it!
5. The difficulty of the case
為何在不同診所的植牙費用有所不同呢？其實你知道嗎？在同一家診所, 同樣的植牙位置。收費有時候也會不一樣！這是因為病患本身的條件而造成植牙費用 的落差.
這是一個很好的比喻，人工植體就是那個螺絲，上面掛的東西就是你未來的假牙．在有些超高難度的案例，骨頭的高度及寬度嚴重的不足, 在植牙之前必須要先執行一些比較特別，複雜的佈局手術. 這些額外，但又重要的佈局手術，例如開窗補骨 (Caldwell-Luk procedure) 一定會讓您的手術費用變得比一般人更要高。
6. Warranty and Repair
You may be embarrassed to ask your doctor for this warranty, but you don’t need to worry. Most good clinics will automatically provide it to you. Formatting and contracting all the treatment procedures are the areas where I found that dental enhancement after returning to Taiwan, so we should be the first clinic in Taiwan to provide this service.
This contract should be in duplicate, one for you and one for the clinic's records. The warranty for artificial dental implants should be separate from dentures. Because dental implants are implanted first, concubine teeth will be installed in the next four to eight months. This approach allows you to gain extra warranty time.
7. Physician's education and background
A long-standing academic and cultural center; University of Toronto, Canada. After hundreds of years of nurturing and evolution, it has left a mature and stable appearance. But what remains unchanged is that she is still one of the world's universities.
Within the mature and stable traditional appearance is the Toronto Dental School. With the world's most innovative training center, only 64 doctors graduate from this institution every year under continuous refinement and elimination.
Artificial dental implants are a big investment for anyone. In terms of cost, there must be a certain amount of physical and psychological payment. Therefore, we will study to determine the most important factor for the success or failure of dental implants , and that is the doctor who performed your surgery.
Your doctor or in the field of dental implants, we call it a surgeon; the most basic threshold is to have a professional license and professional implant training. People who want to implant must be very careful when making a choice, except for the cost of implants In addition to considerations, we must choose medical institutions and physicians carefully.
Most domestic dentists who graduated from China have to pay a lot of tuition and time before they want to learn dental implant technology. For example, Canada and the United States are countries where many doctors choose to learn professional dental implant technology; unless the doctor himself It was trained abroad.
It takes a lot of time and money to train an outstanding surgeon. This is why your doctor may charge differently based on their academic qualifications, background and experience. Therefore, artificial implant surgery is relatively expensive compared to general dentistry. But it explains why the price of an implant can range from 60,000 to 120,000 yuan.
Among all dentistry departments, the technology, concept and material science of implants are the fastest updated. Make sure that your doctor is constantly absorbing the latest information and knowledge. If you can, it will be more secure to choose a doctor with teaching-level or lecture-level status to help you operate.
Any surgery has certain risks. Dental implant itself is a kind of surgery. We mentioned the similarities between dental implants and electronic products in the warranty and maintenance content, but a very different place is that artificial dental implants are not like 3C products. Even if you don't like it, there is no way to replace it, or at least it is very difficult. So when you are making a decision about implantation, use your wisdom and consider various factors to make a decision with the lowest risk.
