Dental Implant Coating Halts Peri-Implantitis
Dental implants are the first choice for dentists and patients alike. This is because they are the closest replacement to our natural teeth that modern dentistry offers. They are inserted and allowed to fuse into the jaw bone tissue, meaning they are stable and strong. While implants offer a perfect tooth replacement for most patients, others unfortunately experience peri-implantitis.
Peri-implantitis is the development of pathogenic microbes into biofilm on the implant. This causes a very destructive inflammatory process that leads to damage of the surrounding soft and hard tissues. The implant must then be removed.
A study at the Schools of Medicine and Dentistry and School of Engineering at Plymouth University has resulted in a nano coating that prevents bacterial growth and reduces the biofilm that builds up by 97.5%. This nano coating is comprised of silver, titanium, and hydroxyapatite. It also promotes the implants integration with the connective hard tissue of the jaw. The implant is therefore protected from bacteria and inflammation, and can even speed up the healing process.
Christopher Tredwin, BDS, MSc, PhD, head of the Plymouth University School of Dentistry, further emphasizes the benefits of this study and resulting product. “We have identified the means to protect dental implants against the most common cause of their failure,” he says. ““The potential of our work for increased patient comfort and satisfaction and reduced costs is great, and we look forward to translating our findings into clinical practice.”
While this nano coating is not yet widely used, it does indicate a possibility for the end of peri-implantitis in the future.
