Improving osseous conditions around teeth and implants utilizing high frequency vibration

High-frequency vibration to improve osseous conditions

Abstract

Aim The aim of this work is to review the applications of LMHFV in improving bone density around implants and teeth. 

Results Low magnitude high frequency vibration (LMHFV) has been actively used in orthopedics to improve bone density, osseous healing via stimulation of osteogenic cells, release of growth factors and stimulation of angiogenesis. Those concepts have been carried over to dental treatment. A common clinical challenge in dental practice relates to bone loss associated with periodontal disease, tooth loss or other causes as well as treating tooth mobility and peri-implantitis. 

Conclusion LMHFV provides similar positive results as reported in orthopedics, to improve osteo-stimulatory affects improving bone quality and density around both natural teeth and dental implants.
