OBJECTIVES Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has been used in the literature to evaluate Schneiderian membrane thickness (SMT), but its accuracy has never been validated. The primary aim of this study was to compare the SMT measured by CBCT to the gold standard histological assessment. The correlations between SMT and anatomical structures of the(More)
BACKGROUND Schneiderian membrane thickness (SMT) has been regarded as a key factor for influencing membrane perforation, which may jeopardize the final clinical outcome of sinus augmentation. Hence, this systematic review aims at studying the mean SMT and further investigating patient-related factors that may affect SMT. As a secondary goal, the association(More)
BACKGROUND Daily-basis patients have uncertain understanding about dental implant therapy and its complications. Therefore, an assessment of the level of knowledge, awareness and attitudes on peri-implantitis, evaluation of information provided by the dentist/specialist that performed the treatment and assessment of perceptions, level of satisfaction and(More)
Despite the growing number of publications in the field of implant dentistry, there are limited studies to date investigating the biology and metabolism of bone healing around dental implants and their implications in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of this review article is to provide a thorough understanding of the biological events taking place(More)
Certain Schneiderian membrane thicknesses (SMT) have shown to be more prone to tearing/perforation, and some pathologies might influence SMT. Henceforth, we aimed at studying the correlation of inflammatory status to SMT in human fresh cadaver heads. A total of 14 fresh cadaver heads including 27 Schneiderian membrane specimens were histologically(More)
