Independent Patient advice Germany (UPD) sees signs of excessive use of dental implants for elderly

Elderly felt pushed to implant restorations. “We see signs of an oversupply, precisely because elderly people often feel it is hard to demand their rights to consent information and instruction,” says UPD managing director Krumwiede.
In general, all patients considering alternatives for the treatment with dental prostheses are recommended to get detailed advice from their dentist before a planned treatment.
There is usually no time pressure for dental prosthesis treatments, so that it must always be possible to take advantage of the wide range of advice offered by the dental profession or the advisory services of the dental patient advisory centres.
