A New Nanotube Surface for Dental Implants Will Benefit All Patients

Dental implants are well known among people because they have helped improve the lives of millions of people across the world. While most dental implant procedures can help restore the smile and chewing ability of most people, many others suffer from failed procedures caused by complications as they heal. Worrying about a failed procedure may soon be a thing of the past. The medical community has recently developed a new TiO2 (titanium dioxide) nanotube coating for dental implant screws which drastically increases the chance of a successful procedure that will last a lifetime.

How will TiO2 nanotube coatings help dental implant patients?

Dental implant surgeries are usually successful, but it doesn’t always work well for some people. In some cases, the implants fail because the bone is unable to properly fuse to the screws, or the implants are rejected because of infections. The new titanium dioxide nanotube coatings have been found to prevent infections without damaging the surrounding tissue, while also aiding in the process of healthy tissue growth. This means that patients can recover from a successful surgery more quickly with a smaller risk of negative complications.
