Implant dentistry is a branch of dentistry that uses dental implants to restore missing teeth. Dental implants refer to artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials that are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth or dental prostheses. This field combines principles from various fields such as oral surgery, prosthodontics, and implantology. The process of implant dentistry involves several stages. The first stage is an evaluation to study the patient's oral health and suitability for dental implants. Following, the surgical stage takes place where the implant is placed into the jawbone through a surgical procedure. The implant then integrates with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. After the osseointegration period, the restorative phase of implant dentistry begins. This involves the placement of an abutment, which connects the implant to the replacement tooth or dental prosthesis. This book unravels the recent studies on implant dentistry. It will serve as a valuable source of reference for graduate and postgraduate students.
