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.

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.
