The new chair-side of detection of matrix metalloproteinase MMP8 allows clinicians to monitor periodontal disease status in a site-specific manner and increase the patient compliance to treatment option and relevance to general health and CHD.

The consensus Report of the sixth European Workshop on Periodontology showed that Periimplantitis occurs in 28%-56% of subjects and becomes a major problem to implant dentistry in the future. Current evidence indicates that most of destruction of the periodontium is host mediated, driven by bacterial challenge.

Zirconium nitride hard coating technology for dental implants showed a high significant positive effect on biofilm reduction and fibroblast adhesion and surface mechanical resistance.
