Trends in research and development

The dental implant field has provided a significant contribution to our overall understanding of basic biomaterial and biomechanical properties. The oral cavity provides 28 to 32 candidate implant sites, a necessity for crossing the epithelium to provide functional support, a wide range of anatomical shapes, and an even wider range of environmental conditions. The oral cavity and associated tissues provide a very severe environment for implant biomaterials and designs, and it is interesting to note the trends in research and development within this field.
