    Osseointegration Kinetics

    • 1004 Words
    • 5 Pages

    There is still controversy as to the optimal features for implant surfaces regarding osseointegration kinetics. Direct bone apposition onto the conditioning film-coated surface of the titanium is critical. Surface composition, hydrophilicity, Critical Surface Tension and roughness are parameters that may play a role in the implant-tissue interaction. Guehnnec et al. (2007) reviewed the different methods used for applying osteoconductive coatings and increasing surface roughness to titanium dental implants (such as titanium plasma-spraying, grit-blasting, acid-etching, anodization or calcium phosphate coatings) and their surface characterization and topographies were described. They showed that the development of these surface treatments required…

    antibacterial reactions to any infection supposed to occur, but research on how to avoid bacterial attachment and how to improve soft and hard tissue attachment to the implant is still needed. 1.1 Background One of the most important challenges today is to further improve the success rate. It is important that the integration between biocompatible materials and soft and hard tissue is fast. To reach even faster integration, new materials, coatings and topographies need to be explored. The…

    A dental implant consists of a titanium root post embedded into your jawbone and an attached, porcelain crown. This implant is permanent and looks, feels, and functions exactly like your own natural teeth. A dental implant can be placed in your mouth by an oral surgeon, a periodontist, a prosthodontist, or a general dentist with advanced training in implant surgery. A dental implant is an ideal solution for anyone who has a missing or lost tooth. The procedure to get a dental implant is as…

    Since the mid-1960s, dental implants have been successfully used to treat edentulous patients, with a survival rate higher than 90% after 15 years.1 In the last decades, several physical and chemical treatments of the titanium surface improved its biocompatibility, in terms of both biosafety and biofunctionality. The good clinical performance of an implant depends on osseointegration, i.e. the formation of an effective interface between implant and bone, and gingival attachment, which occurs…

    3 Situations That Require Dental Crowns Dental crowns are used for many reasons, such as providing protection to a tooth in your mouth that was repaired after being damaged, or for a cosmetic reason that requires that a cap be put on a tooth. Since dental crowns can be costly, it’s a good idea to be prepared for potential situations that can require a dental crown so you are not shocked when you find out that you need one. Implants A dental implant requires surgically installing a titanium…

    of the tooth and a root. The root extends into the jawbone to secure the natural tooth. A dental implant is essentially a prosthetic replacement for the root of the tooth. Needless to say, without a natural root, the visible portion of the natural tooth cannot survive; therefore, the tooth will also need to be replaced. The tooth is replaced with what is referred to as a crown. Whereas previously each tooth required its own titanium root, today, we can use a single root to anchor multiple teeth.…
