Advances in Dental Surgery: Nanotechnology Is The Future!
Posted By: MedMonks Comments: 0
Dental surgery is one of the most popular treatment for which thousands of medical tourists prefer to come to India every year. The popularity of dental surgery in India can be attributed to two factors – the affordable cost of dental surgery in India and the availability of the latest technology.
One such technology that has become overly popular in the field of dental surgery is nanotechnology. This is not a new technology, but advances made in the field of nanotechnology has marked an important breakthrough in the manufacturing of dental implants.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
A dental implant is required for the treatment of a number of dental issues. It is just like a natural tooth, in its looks and function. Once fixed properly after a dental surgery, dental implants help restore the natural look and feel of the missing teeth and also retains the natural shape of the face. Most importantly they restore function of the jaw that was affected with loss of the decaying teeth.
A dental surgery for implant placement proves to be successful in over 90 percent of the cases. Dental implants are safe and there are no chances of cavity formation in them.
Nanotechnology and Dental Implants
Nanotechnology was at first only used on the surface of the dental crowns. However, now it is used in the manufacturing of dental implants as well.
Nanotechnology has made it possible to coat the dental implant with a thin film of calcium phosphate. It helps in the attachment of the bone to the load that carries implant (ossointegration) and the coating promotes faster healing after the dental surgery.
There are a number of advantages associated with the use of nano-particle coated dental implants. It helps create better resorption pits on the coated surface of the implant, promotes the jointing and growth of the osteoprogenitor cells, and also introduces protein in the dental implant.
The long-term success of dental implants lies in their ability to ossointegrate as early as possible after the dental surgery. Nanotechnology, causes faster and stronger ossointegration, thus, help improve the overall life of a dental implant.
Even science backs the idea that nanotechnology can play an important role in the field of dentistry by revolutionizing the way dental implants integrate with the bone. This technology can be used to modify the surface of the dental implant, and thus facilitate the biochemical anchoring of dental implant to bone, leading to immediate and long-term success of the procedure.
