FDA plans to reclassify safety of dental implant
from Courthouse News Service
From Jan. 18:
The Food and Drug Administration plans to reclassify a blade-form surgically implanted dental device, citing the benefits of such devices relative to their risks. The blade-form endosseous dental implant is a kind of device, made of titanium alloy or other so-called biocompatible material, that is surgically installed into a patient's jaw bone. A denture, crown, bridge or similar dental restoration is attached to the implant by means of a screw extending into the patient's mouth, the proposal states.
