So many patients arriving at Langley Dental Practice require bone grafts before having dental implant work completed.

(PRWEB) August 28, 2014

Tariq Drabu is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon born and educated in Manchester in the United Kingdom. He was one of the youngest dentists to ever graduate in the United Kingdom. He then went on to work in some of the busiest dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia before receiving his Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Dr Drabu is now the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice and is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. He also tutors and mentors postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.

Tariq Drabu was speaking about a recent article published on a top medical website. The full article, published on 22 August 2014, can be read here.

Tariq Drabu in Manchester said “An implantable tissue scaffold has been created by MIT chemical engineers. The scaffold is coated with bone growth factors, which is slowly released and in turn, encourages the body to form new bones. These new bones act the same as the original tissue. When released to the public, this discovery will make a significant change in bone transplants from congenital defects to bone augmentation for dental implants and so much more.”

Tariq Drabu went on to say “Up to now research has struggled when it comes to using bone growth factors in a controlled manner. When using these factors, researchers have found it exceptionally difficult to use them in a controlled and effective way. Using these growth factors too quickly will result in unwelcome side effects and it can also have a negative impact on tissue repair. By releasing the factor slowly, it eliminates these potential side effects with positive results, which is so exciting to the dental industry and can make such a positive impact on patients who require bone work before receiving dental implants.”

Tariq Drabu closed in saying “So many patients arriving at Langley Dental Practice require bone grafts before having dental implant work completed. This could be due to certain diseases which break down the bone and when we carry out a dental implant procedure, it’s essential that there is strong bone to hold the post in place. This new discovery is such an exciting time for the dental industry and it will hopefully reach the market in the near future, helping dental professionals help their patients when it comes to dental implants.”
