The osseointegration of biomaterials for dental and orthopaedic use is a still open topic in experimental and clinical research. Some aspects of this complex mechanism are not completly research. Some aspects of this complex mechanism are not completly explained yet. These reasons make the process of osseointegration a topical sibject both in clincal and experimental view points. The Authors describe how this complex event has not been studied with standard investigation and report also most of present research lines on the basis of their experience. A particular attention is paid to some factors related to both biomaterial and implant site, which can influence significantly the process of osseointegration.
