economics being accelerated by global markets necessitate dental treatment strategies
focused both on medical and economic basis. As in orthopedics, cardiology or vascular
medicine, implants are indispensible for rehabilitation, especially in advanced organ or
functional damage. These benefits known from medicine represent the fundamentals
for today’s dentistry. The new economics call for a comprehensive, cost-effective
treatment with focus on patient expectations.
