Nanoscale modifications of dental implants: An emerging trend
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Shraddha Rathi and Dr. Ankit Verma
ABSTRACT:Recent advancements in engineering tools and techniques coupled with the extrapolation of nanotechnology in the field of dental implant science have rendered incorporation of nano scale features on dental implant surfaces feasible. Most of the nature’s biological process, including bone formation occur at nanoscale levels, so this endeavour is basically an attempt to mimic the nature’s nano science in order to achieve better osseointegration levels and higher implant success rates. Such nano-modified implants in addition to macro- and micro-scale features also have nano features incorporated within the micro-topography.Several methods have been developed to incorporate nano scale features within the micro-topography of implant surface and dental implants possessing such combination features have now been made commercially available.
