It is well established that tooth extraction is followed by a reduction of the buccolingual as well as the apicocoronal dimension of the alveolar ridge. Different measures have been taken to avoid this bone modelling process, such as immediate implant placement and bone grafting, but in most cases with disappointing results. One fundamental principle of(More)
PURPOSE Marginal bone loss around implants is of great concern, and its cause may be multifactorial. Recently, clinical cases presenting marginal bone loss, in most cases accompanied by vertical fracture of internal-connection implants in the buccolingual direction, have been reported, in which unfavorable stress distribution is one possible cause of(More)
PURPOSE To describe the early bone tissue response to implants with and without micro threads designed to the full length of an oxidized titanium implant. MATERIALS AND METHODS A pair of two-dimensional finite element models was designed using a computer aided three-dimensional interactive application files of an implant model with micro threads in(More)
OBJECTIVES When implants are inserted, the initial implant stability is dependent on the mechanical stability. To increase the initial stability, it was hypothesized that bone condensation implants will enhance the mechanical stability initially and that the moderately rough surface will further contribute to the secondary stability by enhanced(More)
It is commonly known that cortical bone exhibits viscoelastic-viscoplastic behavior which affects the biomechanical response when an implant is subjected to an external load. In addition, long term effects such as creep, relaxation and remodeling affect the success of the implant over time. Constitutive material models are commonly derived from data(More)
AIM To investigate how osseointegration is affected by different nano- and microstructures. The hypothesis was that the surface structure created by dual acid treatment (AT-1), applied on a reduced topography, might achieve equivalent biomechanical performance as a rougher surface treated with hydrofluoric acid (HF). MATERIALS AND METHODS In a preclinical(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the causes for internal implant fractures, which is suggested to be one of the reasons for marginal bone loss. MATERIALS AND METHODS From a 14-year database of 6051 implants, 10 single implant vertical fractures were identified and the abutments were all castable abutments. The abutments presented contamination and irregularities at(More)
Bone remodeling is a process involving both dynamic and static bone strain. Although there exist numerous studies on the effect of dynamic strain on implant stability and bone remodeling, the effect of static strain has yet to be clarified. Hence, for this purpose, the effect of static bone strain on implant stability and bone remodeling was investigated in(More)
OBJECTIVE Bone is constantly exposed to dynamic and static loads, which induce both dynamic and static bone strains. Although numerous studies exist on the effect of dynamic strain on implant stability and bone remodeling, the effect of static strain needs further investigation. Therefore, the effect of two different static bone strain levels on implant(More)
