Fostering the highest standards of research and education
The Academy of Osseointegration, the world’s leading dental implant organization, and the Osseointegration Foundation were established to provide a focus for the rapidly advancing biotechnology involving the natural bond between bone and certain alloplostic reconstructive materials. The nature of this bond makes the technology applicable for a variety of medical and dental situations and offers benefits that include:
Replacement of lost teeth
Restoration of impaired hearing
Enhancements of reconstructive cosmetic surgery
Correction of craniofacial problems
The Academy of Osseointegration and the Osseointegration Foundation foster the highest standards of research and education of practitioners, who in turn, use this research and education to enrich their patients’ lives and enhance their students’ knowledge and skills. Support of the Osseointegration Foundation is essential for the continuation of existing research grant programs and to enable new programs to be launched.
Thousands of patients have already benefitted from treatment by the Academy’s membership, which consists of more than 6,000 individuals in 70 countries, representing the most highly trained professionals providing craniofacial implant treatment.
Many more individuals will benefit from the advances made possible through the charitable programs of the Osseointegration Foundation.
