With 35 years of experience working in the field of dental implants and a dozen inventions and patents, I would like to share a few words about the evolution of this advanced technology, and its pitfalls in Lithuania. Together with Prof. S. Čepulis, Dr. O. Surovas and Dr. V.Vaitkus, I had the opportunity to develop original implants and instruments, and began my dental implant practice in Lithuania back in 1981. I defended my first dissertation on dental implants in Lithuania in 1988. I have performed several thousand implant operations and improved prosthesis on implants, and in 2007 I began lecturing on dental surgery and prosthesis implantation to dental students in the training facilities of our clinic.
When it comes to dental services, most often we hear two terms: aesthetics and implantation.
You certainly have heard some of the advertising slogans: “Implantation within one hour, with a lifetime guarantee”, “Aesthetic fillings, fast and beautiful, a perfect smile within an hour.”
Even among doctors and professional businesses, you constantly hear about “aesthetic dentistry”, “aesthetic restoration”, “aesthetic conferences”, “aesthetic academies and clubs”, “aesthetic restorations lectures and courses”, etc. One might think aesthetic restoration of the teeth is easy and simple, perhaps even the key task of the doctor.
I have been working in the field of endodontics for thirty years. In my daily practice I face both simple cases and complications (root perforation, foreign bodies in the root canal, crown and root cracks, breaks and fractures); I also deal with patients having expressed nausea reflex, limited mouth opening, anxiety and fear. I have to perform medical procedures under general anaesthesia, procedures for children and patients with mental and physical disabilities.
