Osteoporosis: Resolvable magnesium implants may promote bone formation

MALMÖ, Sweden: According to new research from Sweden, a groundbreaking method for stimulating bone formation around implants could soon be available. In testing the cellular and molecular effects of magnesium-based implants in the early healing stages of implant integration, the researchers found that the release of magnesium promoted rapid bone formation and the activation of osteogenic signals near implants placed in osteoporotic bone.

New implant releases antimicrobial drugs to fight infections Jan 30, 2017 | News Europe

New implant releases antimicrobial drugs to fight infections

LEUVEN, Belgium: Bacterial and fungal pathogens can form a biofilm on dental implants that is resistant to antimicrobial drugs like antibiotics. As a result, these implants pose a significant risk of infection. A multidisciplinary team of researchers at KU Leuven in Belgium has developed a dental implant that gradually releases such drugs from an integrated reservoir. The antimicrobial liquid could help prevent and fight infections.

Implant treatment plan should be adapted for smokers, research suggests

XI’AN, China: A Chinese study comparing implant stability and peri-implant tissue response in heavy smokers and non-smokers has found that smoking did not affect the overall success of implant surgery, as all implants achieved osseointegration without complications at least by the end of the 12th week after placement. However, smoking did cause the bone around the implants to heal more slowly; thus, implants began to osseointegrate considerably later than in the non-smoking group.

Surgical treatment of circumferential and semicircumferential defects due to periimplantitis: A prospective case series cohort study Jan 17, 2017 | DT Science

Surgical treatment of circumferential and semicircumferential defects due to periimplantitis: A prospective case series cohort study

Different surgical treatment strategies for periimplantitis using graft material and membranes have been suggested. However, in these, the microbiological aspects of the periimplant environment were underestimated. The present preliminary study was aimed at analyzing a new clinical approach based on disinfection of the implant connection and of the implant surface, as well as the use of only a self-stabilizing graft material in the treatment of circumferential and semicircumferential bony defects ...

Live webinar: Hard-tissue management in implant dentistry

LEIPZIG, Germany: One of the main goals of a successful dental implant treatment is optimised function and aesthetics, producing a restoration that is as natural-looking as possible. However, the loss of hard tissue after implant osteotomy is an undesirable side-effect. In an upcoming free Dental Tribune Study Club webinar, Dr Maher Almasri will discuss contemporary methods of managing hard-tissue loss, focusing on advanced procedures intended to avoid loss of alveolar bone during healing in particular. ...

Nature-inspired method may advance biocompatibility of implants

WAKŌ, Japan: Mimicking the adhesive properties of mussels, which are able to form a tight bond with smooth surfaces, scientists from the RIKEN research institute in Japan have successfully attached a biologically active molecule to a titanium surface, a metal used in artificial joints and dental implants, for example. Their findings may enable the development of new cell growth-enhancing materials and thus more biologically beneficial dental implants.

New biomaterial research aims to increase safety of metal implants

SAN ANTONIO, USA: Two new research projects investigating biofilm corrosion in pipelines and an ultrasound drug delivery methodology have each received $125,000 in funding. Although initially geared toward the petroleum industry, where problematic biofilms occur in many of the production and distribution processes, the study findings will have broad implications in other areas, such as dental and other types of implants.
