Explain The Biological Process Of Osseointegration

Decent Essays
The biological process of osseointegration following the creation of an osteotomy site includes blood clot formation and the release of growth factors (BMP’s, VEGF etc.); this is followed by new blood vessel formation (Angiogenesis). The presence of a fibrin scaffold between the osteotomy site and the surface of the implant serves as a transition between the bone marrow (where the osteoprogenitor cells are located) and the surface of the implant, which is a very important factor in the migration of osteoprogenitor cells into the bone-implant interface zone. When the cells get there, they begin the deposition of lamellar bone and then the formation of a more mature bone on the surface of the implant to achieve a good osseointegration. The reason
