"Tissue Level vs Bone Level"

An evening lecture by Dr. Gerry Unhold

Dr Unhold

Tissue Level and Bone Level Implants :                                    

 The Pros and the Cons

With numerous implant designs and approaches, it is quite a task for a practicing clinician to clearly understand the innuendos of the popular tissue level, and the bone level implant approaches. Whereas the tissue level implant design was the most poular one used clinically and researches widely by the International Team for Implantolgy (ITI) group, the more recent "bone-level" implants from Straumann has grabbed well deserved attention for it's ability to maintain bone and soft tissue around the implant interface extremely predictably. 

Dr. Unhold, a dual degree, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon with abundant experience in dental implants will outline the various aspects of the two approaches, based on available clinical evidence and his own rich clinical experience.
