Does It Exist in Indonesia?
Dental implant treatment is well known to the wider community nowadays. Dental implant is a dental treatment to replace missing teeth. Different from other artificial teeth that we know so far, dental implants replace teeth even to the roots because they are embedded in the bone that supports the teeth (alveolar bone). Then, the question is, who can practice this treatment? General dentist? Oral surgeon? Or a dental implant specialist? In this article, we will discuss about those who can perform this treatment.
In medical education there are specialist programs for certain fields, as well as in dentistry. Dentistry in Indonesia has 8 specialist fields, namely:
Pediatric Dentistry Specialist (Sp. KGA)
Oral surgeon (Sp. BM)
Dental conservation specialist (Sp. KG)
Orthodontist (Sp. Ort)
Prosthodontic specialist (Sp. Pros)
Oral disease specialist (Sp. PM)
Periodontist (Sp. Perio)
Dental radiology specialist (Sp. RKG)
Then the question will arise, what about dental implant specialists? How can a dental implant specialist not be included in the list of dentistry specialties? Yes, you read correctly. Although dental implant treatment is quite common in Indonesia, unfortunately until now there is no dental implant specialist in Indonesia.
One of the reasons why dental implantology has not become its own specialty is because the field of dental implant medicine is still quite new in Indonesia. According to Kepkonsil No.33 of 2019, specialist dentists who have the competence to exercise clinical authority on dental implants are Dentists who are Specialist in Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Until 2022, the new field of dental implants is called interest and doctors who are engaged in implant dentistry are called implant dentistry enthusiasts, not implant dentists. This can be seen in the name of the association of dentists interested in implant dentistry, namely: the Indonesian Implant Dentistry Association (IPKGII). Currently, dental implants are carried out by dentists specializing in oral surgery, prosthodontic specialists, periodontics specialists, and non-specialist dentists who have attended continuing education about implants at home and abroad.
