The inventor of the Ultratooth technology, Dr. Sargon Lazarof, will be discussing how ULTRATOOTH can be placed in FULL FUNCTION at the time of placement as a single or multiple tooth replacement. FDA cleared in 1994, after the original Branemark implant, this is the only device on the market that was required to submit clinical cases for 510K approval and acquired its own FDA category as a root form implant with special features. After 27 years of ongoing studies, clinical trials, and enhancements, we are now proud to introduce the future of tooth replacement. ULTRATOOTH is an apically expandable quintapodal root-form dental fixture. It is surgically self-tapped into an osseous bore and expanded by turning of a screw within its central channel to 20 Ncm2.
Dr. Sargon Lazarof graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery (with Honors) in 1986 from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry.His postgraduate studies involve the Study of Disease of the Temporomandibular Joint at the TMJ Research Foundation. As well as being a past clinical professor at USC’s School of Dentistry, Dr. Sargon Lazarof is the inventor/developer of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) first approved immediate load implant, which has been described in the industry as the "first major innovation in dental implantology since the early work of P.I. Branemark." In 1991 he wrote a paper that first coined the term “immediate load” and described it as full function at the time of placement. A few years later in 1998 his book was published “The Immediate Load Implant System, Esthetic Dentistry for the 21st Century,” by Quintessence Publishing Co., Ltd.
In addition to being a fellow of the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics, he maintains a full-time practice in implantology and is the Founder of the Sargon Dental & Implant Institute located in Encino, California, USA, where doctors come and train in both basic and advanced implantology.
