  • Abstract

    Dental implants represent a reliable treatment option in oral rehabilitation of partially or fully edentulous patients to secure various kinds of prostheses. Dental implants have become a standard procedure for single tooth replacement not only in the esthetic zone, providing many advantages but also challenges in sophisticated patients. The process of osseointegration was reported more than 45 years ago. However, it was not until the last decade that the focus of biomedical research shifted from implant geometry to the osteoinductive potential of implant surfaces. Surface characteristics such as topography, wettability, and coatings contribute to the biological processes during osseointegration by mediating the direct interaction to host osteoblasts in bone formation.
