Today, dental implants treatments are very effective, with a success rate of over 90%. Therefore, innovations in the field of dentistry are unstoppable.
The hitherto existing innovations in the field of dental medicine have been characterized by changes in certain parts of the implants, as its base, the prosthetic attachments, etc.. However, they have never provided around its new structure so far.
The trabecular metal implant is the most groundbreaking and important invention of recent times for two reasons:
- Firstly, the material used: tantalum, equal biocompatible metal but more ductile, tough and corrosion resistant than titanium.
- On the other hand, the body of these implants: have neglected the threads and have become a much more similar to bone marrow reticular membrane.
The latter reason allows the assembly between bone and part is much more optimal and simple than with traditional implants. Its ergonomic and anatomical shape facilitates osteoincorporación process, allowing bone to grow through the structure of tantalum and increase the implant surface.
Today, improvements are under study and analysis, so that experts in dentistry can not say apparent potential of this material and these implants. Only long-term clinical results may confirm its effectiveness.
