Local manufacturing toilet bring down price of dental implants

Though India has forward-looking in performing bone implants, the readiness is nevertheless non uncommitted to the piteous. Mumbai-based elderly periodontologist Dr A Kumarswamy said, “The cost of dental implants is too high since our country still hasn’t started commercially manufacturing it.”
Dr Kumarswamy was in the metropolis to pay heed the three-sidereal day conference on ‘Dental consonant Implantology’ unionized by Beau monde of Medicine Implantologists at Hotel Raddison Blu below the leading of Dr Mohit Zamad.
Explaining the flow scenario of medicine implants, Dr Kumarswamy told TOI, “Every Indian clinician uses imported implants. Europe and United States (US) supply the high-end implants, while countries like China, Korea and Israel supply the ones costing slightly less.”
He said, “In India, only the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) is manufacturing implants, but they are only for research purposes. The moment we start manufacturing, pricing will come under control.”
He said, “A city like Nagpur, which has high tobacco consumption, obviously has good number of patients, mostly from poor class, who need to be catered. Many poor visit the three available government dental colleges in the state at Nagpur, Aurangabad and Mumbai. At present, the implants done at these colleges are very few. Basically, there is nothing to boast about, all due to the high cost and lack of trained dentists.”
However, evening if the commonwealth starts acting implants in skilful number, the write up doesn’t ends in that location said, Dr Kumarswamy.
“Tobacco consumption after surgery will have even more severe damage on the gums. So, after the implant, if the doctor doesn’t keep a strong follow-up it’s of no use. A strong system needs to be built where there is a check-up after every three months in the first year, every six months in second year, and one every year after that.”
Dr Kumarswami said more efforts are needed, comparable the initiative one-class family program for clinicians in ‘Oral Implantology’ launched at Nagpur and Mumbai. He said, “The programme run in coordination with Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) began in 2015. VSPM’s dental college and research centre at Nagpur is hosting the fellowship of 12 students per batch. The second batch is about to graduate and now other dental colleges too want to start the course.”
