Mobile radio reduces the healing of dental implants by disturbing the bone metabolism and increasing the tendency for inflammation. After Brussels, Geneva now also rejects the introduction of 5G technology.
This exciting study was found by Max Riemann, an SDS user and member of our SWISS BIOHEALTH EDUCATION training center and communication platform. The Pubmed study shows that titanium implants exposed to mobile phones in the healing phase are less healthy, have less bone contact and are more susceptible to inflammation:
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The increased use of cell phones has raised many questions as to whether their use is safe for patients with dental implants. This study aimed to assess the consequences of cell phone-emitted radiation on bone-to-implant osseointegration during the healing phase.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve rabbits were grouped into three groups of four. Group 1 (control) was not exposed to electromagnetic radiation; group 2 (test) was exposed for 8 hours/day in speech mode and 16 hours/day in standby mode; and group 3 (test) was exposed for 24 hours continuously in standby mode for 3 months. Forty-eight implants were placed in tibia and femur bone of rabbits, and after 90 days the rabbits were sacrificed and bone surrounding the implant was retrieved. Histopathologic evaluations of the specimens were done using transmitted light microscope. The differences among the three groups were statistically analyzed with analysis of variance (ANOVA) and pairwise comparisons via Fisher’s exact test.
RESULTS: Significantly less bone-to-implant contact and bone area surrounding implant threads were found in the test groups compared to the control group. There was a significant difference in regular bone formation (P < .001) among the three groups.
CONCLUSION: Implants exposed to cell phone radiation showed more inflammatory reaction when compared to the nonexposed implants, thus indicating that cellular phone overuse could affect the maturation of bone and thus delay osseointegration.
Mobile radio – Antenna effect on implants?
Certainly, this negative effect is lower in ceramic implants, as they have no antenna effect in contrast to titanium implants and thus cause no heating of the surrounding bone. In titanium implants, this heating in bone should be up to 4 ° C. Nevertheless, we urge our patients to minimize the use of mobile phones postoperatively or to avoid them altogether for at least 2 weeks, as this activates the sympathetic mode and destroys stem cells.
Since the planned launch of 5G will work with data speeds of 50,000 times faster than 2G, this 5G trivializing technology would actually have to be called “50,000G.” Since completely new and shorter wave frequency bands are to be used, the influence on the health of living beings cannot be estimated:
For this reason, the City of Brussels on April 2nd and the City of Geneva on April 11th 2019, halted the further expansion of 5G until further reliable data on safety is available. Geneva calls for independent studies from the WHO.
However, regardless of government regulations, every individual is required to strive for responsible and conscious use of this technology. As in dealing with other obviously dangerous health risks of our daily lives such as tobacco, alcohol, sugar, junk food, etc., we cannot delegate the responsibility for it, but have to decide for ourselves whether and how intensively we want to make use of it!
