Abstract

Titanium implants are widely considered as a great success story in dentistry, with a 95% survival rate after five years. However, a vast amount of research continues to augment the titanium surface for better osseointegration. This paper sets out to define our current research goals for implant dentistry and to consider the scientific merits of approaches to surface modifications.
