Dentistry is a discipline of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and disorders of the oral cavity, oral mucosa, and related structures and tissues. Implant dentistry is the branch of dentistry that includes a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture and facial prosthesis. The primary use of implant dentistry is to support a dental prosthesis. Osseointegration is the biological process behind modern dental implants. In osseointegration, materials like titanium form an intimate bond to the bone. Risks and complications related to implant therapy are excessive bleeding, infection, failure to osseointegrate, peri-implantitis, etc. The health of the person receiving the treatment, health of the tissues in the mouth and the drugs which affect the chances of osseointegration, are some factors on which the success or the failure of the dental implant depends. This book contains some path-breaking studies in the field of implant dentistry. It strives to provide a fair idea about this discipline and to help develop a better understanding of the latest advances within this field. This book is a resource guide for experts as well as students.
