Clean Implant

the global quality campaign


The CleanImplant Foundation

Located in the center of Berlin, Germany, a crossroad of the international world, the CleanImplant Foundation CIF GmbH was founded in 2016 as a non profit organization. The foundation regularly initiates objective analysis of the production quality of dental implants by independent institutes based on a defined protocol. Research to determine the consequences and clinical relevance of avoidable contaminations and quality deficiencies in dental implants will be promoted and commissioned in collaboration with renowned universities.  

The CleanImplant Scientific Advisory Board

The CleanImplant management asked scientists and key opinion leaders from all over the world to support the project with their expertise and experience. The Foundation is proud and honored to present the renown members of the Scientific Advisory Board. One of the main tasks of these experts will be the initial definition as well as the further development of a catalogue with dynamic criteria that will lead to the quality label award.

“Implant surfaces do influence the biological response, some modifications may strengthen osseointegration others, such as unintentional impurities, may contribute to a clinical failure. Control of the implant properties is therefore very important and all clinician should be able to know what kind of products they purchase.”

“We have to know, not believe, that a specific implant is without harm to our patients.”

“Dentists have to rely on the word of manufacturers and the FDA or CE marks to feel sure that the implants they are using are being manufactured to a standard one would expect of an implantable dental device. Sadly, this is often not the case. The CleanImplant Foundation is an objective, independent non-profit foundation that has been established to fill this void and to help provide both dentist and patient the reassurance they need and must have when using dental implants.”

“…up to now no quality control exists for dental implants once they have the CE or FDA marks. Therefore I support the idea of the „CleanImplant Foundation“ as an objective, independent, non-profit organization to establish the first quality seal in implant dentistry. Even if we do not know the clinical implications yet, our patients deserve the best quality that is available…“

“Osseointegrated implantology started few decades ago with pure titanium fixtures treated with the best passivation and sterilization protocols available at the time….Nowadays, the major issues related to the quality evaluation of those new types of implants and surfaces are caused by the weak implant approval regulations imposed by legal organisations such as the FDA for the US or European Community (CE label) for their markets. How can it be possible to judge an implant quality, just by using sterilization tests or cell-culture techniques to identify an eventual toxicity of the material?”
