This issue will focus on the various conventional features of dental implants made in titanium, zirconia or titanium-zirconia implants. This clinical issue considered to describe new treatments in Trauma, Orthopedics and also in Dentistry considered and the influence of their physical properties on treatment outcomes in different kinds of patients.
Dental implant and new development of biomaterials can beneficial in some cases treatment possibilities are limited as a result of individual patients’ physical characteristics – bone density, bone quality or bone height.
Investigations comparing trauma implants and dental implants with new surfaces will occupy cortical bone, reduce crestal bone resorption and reduce micromotion compared with regular implants placed in trabecular and cortical bone and also in fractured patients.
This issue will assess how certain implant features (biomaterials, cells, surfaces,implants design, etc.) can influence in the treatment outcomes among completely edentulous patients rehabilitated with implant-supported fixed prostheses and orthopedic patients with complicated fractures. In this context, the research published in this issue will consider the impact of surgical and prosthetic type on patients’ quality of life and satisfaction with their oral health and orthopedic status.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.
