I am a 60 year old male and I have been recommended to have complete reconstruction of the upper jaw with 8 KOS/BCS implants and 2 Pterygoid implants manufactured by IDHE. All done in 3 days without a sinus lift and bone graft. Is this a good long term solution?
Can You Recommend IDHE Implants from Swizerland?

Nowadays there are more than 150 different companies producing dental implants, those that have been on the market for 20+ years and the really young ones. The secrets of titanium alloy used for implants were released a long time ago. And basically the type of alloy used for implants is the same in every company, but the major differences include: the type of the production, quality of implant surfaces, and biocompatibility of this surface with bone and soft tissue, biomechanical behavior of implant components, and the most important factor - long-term research. There are 3 strongest companies in the world: Nobel Biocare, and Straumann, Astra. These companies have invested millions of dollars in their research for decades and became the most published, safe and predictable.
