Teeth are lost due to tooth decay, injury, disease, or other causes. Today, dental implants extend the range of care to a variety of patients undergoing necessary prosthodontic rehabilitation. If the benefits of such treatments are to be maximized, then implants must be selected on logical basis and placed within the context of the full range of treatment modalities. However, modern dental implant systems are based on multiple components often leading to micro-movements which cause stress on the bone or bacterial infections, both of which compromise the success of osseointegration and consequently jeopardize the whole implant adaptation. Thus, a new idea of one-component immediate loading implant emerged to reduce the micro-movement, shorten healing time and number of visits, and contribute to lesser implant failures. The prototypes of the seven-fin trabecular structure implant will be customized using the design software and 3D printing. Next steps will focus on osseointegration, specifically on the best materials and techniques to induce bone formation at the osteotomy site, and on creating the printed implant prototype designed with specifications, measurements, and proportions in accordance with the morphology and function of the natural teeth.
