Full and partial edentualism are serious problems in the United States and all over the world. With the advancements in the technology of dental implants and the increased benefit to patients more people are opting for this procedure. The success rate of implants is over 90% but there are still instances where the implants fail to integrate with the surrounding bone. Understanding what factors play a role in increasing the likelihood of successful integration is important for almost anyone in the dental field because of the increasing number of patients with implants. The major factors involved in whether an implant will integrate are the implants surface characteristics, the biomechanical function of the implant, procedural trauma to the surrounding tissue, and the response of the bone proximal to the implant. With increased awareness of the facets involved in successful dental implants patients undergoing the procedure will be able to increase their chances of success and better understand the complex interactions taking place between implant and bone.
