Periodontology, oral surgery, and esthetic and implant dentistry (the POSEID disciplines) are strongly interconnected clinical and research fields. These dental disciplines are currently very active and are the source of development of many new techniques and technologies. Implantable biomaterials were particularly investigated and have significantly evolved in the recent years: new dental implant design and surfaces, new bone biomaterials, and new surgical adjuvants such as platelet concentrates. The objectives of all these biomaterials and technologies are not only to replace missing or damaged tissues, but also to promote tissue regeneration.
This regenerative medicine approach and the many recent technological evolutions are associated with the development of new therapeutic strategies that still require to be duly evaluated and validated.
