Title: OSTEOGENIC POSTS FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided for enhancing osseointegration performed in conjunction with placing a dental implant. A dental implant post can be used for applying current to the implant site as well as for anchoring an artificial tooth. Such a dual purpose implant can allow faster healing and osseointegration time as well as enabling the use of dental implants in a large segment of the population currently disqualified from such treatment due to poor bone quality.
