Many factors have been found to influence the interfacial bonding between a dental implant and bone and thus the success of implants. Factors such as surgical technique, host bed, implant design, implant surface, material biocompatibility and loading conditions have all been shown to affect implant osseo-integration. Understanding these factors and applying them appropriately in the development of dental implants can lead to achieve predictable osseo-integration and thus minimizing potential implant failures. Developing a meticulous drilling protocol have a detrimental effect of implant surface and on bone healing. The effect of new conical connection on marginal bone loss, as was presented in the last EAO meeting in Lisbon Portugal, will discussed.
Collaboration with experts in histology is crucial to obtain high-quality results, and their correct interpretation ultimately indicates potential implications for academic and clinical use.

Instructor in the post graduate program in Periodontology & dental implantology at Tel Aviv university and in M.Sc. degree . Member of educational , research and graduate students final projects at the Dental Medicine School at the Tel Aviv University.
Current fields of research includes different aspects of GBR, GTR , use of different biomaterials and dental implants in diabetic condition and gene expression during molecular events following GBR procedures and innovative grafting materials. Another major field of research is the influence of drilling protocol and implant neck design on bone to implant contact during early and late healing cascade.
