A Novel Approach in Implant Dentistry - LIGAPLANTS

Jibi J | Rao BL | YSS Sruthi | Pratyusha T | Chitra C [2]


Abstract: In this modern era, implants have outmatched fixed and removable partial dentures for replacing missing teeth. Implants are now in currently use because of their long term survival rate. Still, problems exist with these implants as they lack periodontal ligament. Any inflammation around these implants may cause bone loss than does the inflammation around the natural tooth with periodontal ligament. This can be solved if implants with PDL (periodontal ligament) are developed and can be achieved by Ligaplants which are nothing but a combination of PDL cells with implant biomaterial. Hence this review article aimed to discuss the benefits of periodontio-integrated implants over osseointegrated implants.
