Oral implants — The paradigm shift in restorative dentistry


Alexandria, VA, USA

– 2019 marks the Centennial of the

Journal of Dental Research

(

JDR

). Over the last century the

JDR

has been dedicated to the dissemination of new knowledge and information on all sciences relevant to dentistry and to the oral cavity and associated structures in health and disease.

To celebrate, the

JDR

is featuring a yearlong, commemorative article and podcast series that highlights topics that have transformed dental, oral and craniofacial research over the past 100 years.

The discovery of the phenomenon osseointegration has led to the development of oral implants with high clinical performance. In the

JDR

Centennial article “

Oral Implants — The Paradigm Shift in Restorative Dentistry

,” Niklaus P. Lang, Professor Emeritus, University of Berne, Switzerland, reviews history and progression of dental implants but emphasizes the importance of advocating for treatment philosophies that help retain more teeth.

“While the osseointegration facilitates the use of implants as prosthetic abutments, it must be kept in mind that the peri-implant soft tissue may be subject to biological complications and, in turn, this may result in an infectious process that will jeopardize the osseointegration,” said Lang. “Consequently, the monitoring of the peri-implant tissues is an important aspect and early intervention in situations with peri-implant mucositis is mandatory for the prevention of peri-implantitis. In the light of these facts, it would appear to be logical to advocate that treatment philosophies should change to retain more teeth.”

The November 2019 issue of the

JDR

also includes a

JDR

Centennial podcast “

Oral Implants — The Paradigm Shift in Restorative Dentistry

,” which features a conversation between Lang and Lisa Heitz-Mayfield, University of Western Australia, Perth, moderated by

JDR

Editor-in-Chief William Giannobile, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA, and
