Meeting 2016 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Advanced Materials in Dental and Orthopedic Applications
Presentation Title Surface Treatments and Dental Implant Infections
Author(s) Cimara Fortes Ferreira
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Cimara Fortes Ferreira
Abstract Scope Titanium and its alloys have shown to fulfill most physical, mechanical and chemical properties for an ideal biomaterial. However, the existing lifespan of a dental implant has shown to be limited due to biological contamination from the oral cavity. The prevalence of peri-implant infection in patients with dental implants has shown to range from 28–56%. Clinical cases showing the current treatment to address peri-implant infection and treatment shortcomings will be presented. Ongoing studies using the approach of local delivery of antibiotics using a nanotube treated dental implant surfaces, will be presented. The ultimate goal of these studies are to propose the development of a novel strategy to promote the development of a self-efficient biological implant that will ultimately provide clinicians with another tool to rehabilitate patients with history of chronic and acute periodontitis.
