Systematic review on success of narrow-diameter dental implants.
PURPOSE The aim of this systematic review was to determine the survival and success rates of narrow-diameter implants (NDI) in different clinical indications compared to standard diameter implants.Expand
Influence of bisphosphonates on endothelial cells, fibroblasts, and osteogenic cells
Bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaws (BP-ONJ) is a side effect primarily in patients receiving highly potent nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates. The exact etiopathology is unknown. InExpand
Prevalence and risk factors of bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw in prostate cancer patients with advanced disease treated with zoledronate.
BACKGROUND In addition to other treatments, patients with prostate cancer (pCA) and bone metastasis receive bisphosphonates. Since 2003, a previously unknown side-effect ofExpand
Insertion torque and resonance frequency analysis of dental implant systems in an animal model with loaded implants.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare insertion torque and resonance frequency analysis of different implant systems in an animal model with loaded implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS ThreeExpand
Augmentation procedures using bone substitute materials or autogenous bone - a systematic review and meta-analysis.
AIMS Bone substitute materials (BSM) are described as a reasonable alternative to autologous bone (AB) to simplify the grafting procedure. In a systematic review and meta-analysis, the influence ofExpand
A radiographic study of the position and prevalence of the maxillary arterial endosseous anastomosis using cone beam computed tomography.
PURPOSE This study was designed to investigate the prevalence and course of the vascular canals in the maxillary sinus walls and to measure the distance between the sinus floor, the edentulousExpand
Procalcitonin in diagnosis of severe infections.
Increased serum concentration of procalcitonin (PCT) in limited number of paediatric patients with acute severe bacterial infections has been described previously. In a prospective study in 337Expand
Oral surgery during therapy with anticoagulants—a systematic review
ObjectivesOral anticoagulation therapy (OAT) with vitamin K inhibitors protects the patients from thromboembolic events. It may however lead to excessive hemorrhage during and after an oral surgeryExpand
A comparison of three different attachment systems for mandibular two-implant overdentures: one-year report.
BACKGROUND There is a lack of clinical studies on the self-aligning attachment system (Locator(R); Zest Anchors, Inc. homepage, Escondido, CA, USA) for two-implant-retained overdentures in theExpand
A double-blind randomized controlled trial (RCT) of Titanium-13Zirconium versus Titanium Grade IV small-diameter bone level implants in edentulous mandibles--results from a 1-year observation period.
BACKGROUND The use of endosseous dental implants has become common practice for the rehabilitation of edentulous patients, and a two-implant overdenture has been recommended as the standard of care.Expand
