Description

Dental technology is changing rapidly. With new materials and techniques to work with, these materials are gaining clinical acceptance. Such new technologies are CAD/CAM or electroforming. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement and is used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. There are several types of dental implants. The major classifications are divided into osseointegrated implant and the fibrointegrated implant. These implants form a structural and functional connection between the living bone and the implant. A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge, or implant-supported denture. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in the study of new dental technology and dental implantation and highlights such topics as: dental implants in oral cancer patients, placing and loading implants, and considerations of graft materials in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures and others.
