Abstract Synopsis

”NANODENTISTRY- THE FUTURE OF DENTAL IMPLANTS ”

ABSTRACT

The optimal therapeutic approach for edentulous patients represents a challenge both for general
dentists and implantologists. In the complex oral rehabilitation, is difficult to obtain optimal
functional and esthetic results as well as long term peri-implant health and dental implants
stability. New researches related to nanometer-controlled surfaces in the field of dental implants
confers new perspectives both for the increase of dental implants osseointegration and stability
as well as for the maintaining of the peri-implant tissues health. The improvements of the
chemistry and surface properties by using nanotechnologies will lead to the increase of the
favourable biological interactions between dental implants and peri-implant bone favourising the
adsorption of mesenchymal cells, osteoblasts, mediators, and proteins on the dental implants
surfaces. Also the incorporation of growth factors in nanopores of the coated surfaces will
enhance dental implants osseointegration processes. The importance of the research regarding
nanotechnologies applied to dental implants field is highlighted by the flaws of the actual
materials and surface chemistry that contribute partially to some limitation regarding
osseointegration and long term success of the implant-prosthetic therapy.
