Implant placement in patients with oral bisphosphonate therapy: a case series.
BACKGROUND Although the effect of bisphosphonates on dental implant osseointegration is not clear, dental implant failures attributable to oral bisphosphonate therapy have been reported in patientsExpand

Gene expression and cytokine release during odontogenic differentiation of human dental pulp stem cells induced by 2 endodontic biomaterials.
INTRODUCTION Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and calcium-enriched mixture (CEM) have shown osteogenic/cementogenic/dentinogenic activities; however, their mechanism of action is not fullyExpand

Repair of alveolar cleft defect with mesenchymal stem cells and platelet derived growth factors: a preliminary report.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the enhancing effect of recombinant platelet derived growth factor on human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) in secondary alveoloplasty. Three patients with 4Expand

Sinus augmentation using human mesenchymal stem cells loaded into a beta-tricalcium phosphate/hydroxyapatite scaffold.
OBJECTIVE Implant placement in the posterior maxilla may often be contraindicated because of insufficient bone volume and presence of the maxillary sinus. In these situations, sinus floorExpand

The effect of a constant electrical field on osseointegration after immediate implantation in dog mandibles: a preliminary study.
PURPOSE The long time span between insertion of implants and functional rehabilitation often inconveniences patients. Accelerating bone growth around dental implants can shorten this time span. ThisExpand
