What we have here is a press fit “Cacitek” dental implant placed in 1991 (24 years ago). If you don’t recognize the brand name, it’s because they were doomed when some faulty research indicated that hydroxyapatite coated implants would be falling out shortly after placement…Wrong!
This is just one of many that we placed and are still in function and esthetic as they reach the quarter century mark. Happy for my patients who have had such a better quality of life because we all know how great it is to eat with comfort and confidence! And looking good ain’t shabby either!
Same day immediately placed screw retained implant teeth one week after surgery!
