Dental Implant Design and Biomaterials for Bone Preservation

About this Research Topic

A number of materials can be used to manufacture dental implants including titanium, zirconia or tantalum aiming at osseointegration. The surface preparation of the implant also effects its interaction with the host tissues that in turn influences the implant stability.

The type of implant material used and the use of bioactive coatings also influences the implant mechanical properties and changes to the type of material used will affect the implant long term stability particularly in function. The whole field of connective-tissue engineering is underpinned by scaffolds made from or doped with bioactive coatings. There are some characteristics that have to be taken into account such as micro and nano topography, temperature, sterilization, growth factors, and some osteoinductive additives such as melatonin, vitamin D, silicon magnesium and strontium.

This Research Topic aims to highlight the important role that dental implants and biomaterials play in the dentistry field, by exploring new designs and macrogeometry in implants and biomaterials, which can have very successful outcomes in dental esthetics.

We seek research in this area covering (but not limited to):
Dental Implants, dental implant coatings, Bioactive surfaces, Bone minerals, Osteoinductive additives.


Keywords: dental implants, biomaterials, implant coatings, osseointegration


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
