About the Cover

Tooth loss is a common occurrence in mankind and it can affect the health of the human being as well. There are several treatment modalities available for restoring missing teeth, however dental implants are considered a better available treatment in the paradigm shift from traditional dental therapies such as fixed dental bridges and removable dentures. This treatment modality is based on “Osseointegration” i.e., Direct bone implant contact” which possess some inevitable problems such as masticatory force concentration and immobility of dental implants. Prof PI Branemark coined the term “Osseoperception” and described it as the capability of osseointegrated titanium implants to transmit certain sensibility. The absence of periodontal ligaments and Ruffini-like endings around implants is responsible for the decrease in osseoperception of dental implants. So in the past three decades several successful experiments have been conducted regarding “Biohybrid implants”. The undifferentiated mesenchymal stem cells which are capable of differentiating into cementum, bone, PDL are attached to implant surface. This will enhance their function to simulate normal tooth physiology and proprioception. This would revolutionize the implant dentistry and will be favoured by the patient as well.
