It is well known that osseointegration is viewed as a mode of implant anchorage that simulates a simple wound healing phenomenon. Today, we have evidence that osseointegration is, in fact, a foreign body reaction that involves the immunologically derived bony demarcation of an implant to shield it from nearby tissues. Marginal bone resorption around an oral implant cannot be properly understood without realizing the foreign body nature of the implant itself. Whereas the immunological response may be positive, resulting in implant longevity, adverse immunological reactions may cause marginal bone loss in combination with combined factors. The role of bacteria in the process of marginal bone loss is smaller than previously believed due to combined defense mechanisms of inflammation and immunological reactions; however, if such defense fails, then we may see bacterially induced marginal bone loss as well.
In this Special Issue, we want to provide a global overview of the advances in oral surgery and oral medicine ranging from new advances in oral surgery techniques to the molecular etiological aspects of oral and periodontal disease pathogenesis. This Special Issue will also cover new advances in preclinical pharmacological therapeutic strategies of oral diseases, including studies on pharmacological drugs used in the dental field.
On behalf of the journal Prosthesis, you are cordially invited to contribute an article to the Special Issue “Osseointegration of Oral implants: Importance of Bone Implant Interface and Periodontal Health in Long-Term Survival Rates”. Research articles and reviews are welcome. Case reports will also be considered for publication.
