Impact of Hyperbaric oxygen therapy on dental implants
Posted on Wednesday, October 31st, 2018
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is very well known for its positive effects in early bone healing and more importantly on its promotion of new bone growth.
Now it is being more commonly used alongside dental procedures, including implants. For an implant to be successful, it ideally needs to have bone grow around it on all sides. This study was able to demonstrate that the addition of hyperbaric therapy improved bone growth following implantation.
One of the key clinical benefits that was observed was that the healing time around the implants was significantly reduced. Overall, it may be a very good idea to utilize the regenerative benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients undergoing dental surgery, particularly for those who are at greater risk for complications or failures.
