Dr. Dirk U. Duddeck, Founder and Managing director of the CleanImplant Initiative invites you to join the program:.
"It took years to build up your reputation as an expert in Implantology. Yet, it can be risked in a minute by one negligent choice of an implant!
Alarming remnants and contaminants on implant surfaces were found in four consecutive quality assessment studies. Not only cheap and low quality dental implants were affected. Almost every second implant sample showed disturbing findings in the SEM/EDS analysis, performed in officially accredited testing laboratories. Best-selling implants from many different manufacturing countries, even from Germany, passed national regulations despite massive contaminants. All of these samples were in sterile packaging and ready to use for implant surgery – supposed to remain in the patient’s bone, at best, for a lifetime.
Avoidable contaminations on dental implants may cause serious problems for every practitioner and patient. Only a strong and growing community of dental professionals can exert the necessary and appropriate pressure for safer products in the current implant market.
Our non-for-profit organization is continuously updating its unbiased database of dental implants. We separate implant systems with a high surface quality from those with avoidable impurities. Some companies already follow us, others couldn’t care less, discredit our work or even threaten us with legal actions. Thus, we rely on every supporter to sustain and aid our independent work. Your support allows us to continue our pursuit and enables us to carry out more complex research projects. Thank you for joining the exclusive group of committed colleagues and supporting our quest for better quality in implant dentistry!"
