Researchers increase success rate of dental implants
from Dental Tribune
Spanish researchers have developed an implant coating with a novel biodegradable material aimed at people with inadequate jawbone. According to the inventors, it also will increase the overall success rate of implants through its enhanced biocompatibility and reduce osseointegration time. Elderly people or people with osteoporosis, smokers, diabetics, or people who have had cancer are sometimes not good candidates for dental implants, as their jawbone is unable to integrate the implants adequately.
