Study: Successful Implant Integration

INTRODUCTION Implants are already recognized as essential to enhancing a patient’s quality of life. To ensure successful integration of the oral implant in the patient’s edentulous area, implants are now being developed in all different sizes, shapes, and widths, with various grooved surfaces and designs. This facilitates prosthetic restoration and the return of function. However, to achieve successful implant integration, aesthetic enhancement must be considered as an added possibility, along with […]

Roughly 235 million people around the globe experience asthma — an inflammatory disease that narrows and inflames the airways, therefore resulting in symptoms like difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing, and tightening of the chest. This condition can also cause dry mouth, which can lead to plaque buildup and gum disease. If […]
