The phenomenon of osseointegration in implantology of teeth

Osseointegration is the process of bone-implant healing. At the time of surgery or surgical trauma, when the implantologist creates a socket for the placement of a dental implant, the osteocyte receives a signal from its own organism that this defect needs to be healed. Absolutely the same process in our body occurs, for example, during a fracture of the arm or leg. At the moment when the cell is moving to the edge of the defect, it meets a surface similar to the bone surface, and this is the surface of the dental implant. The cell understands that "it is embedded in the bottom of the defect and there is nothing else to repair." Such an integration of the osteocyte into the dental implant, namely, dental implant survival, is called Osseointegration.
