BACKGROUND It has been shown that bone can be augmented beyond the original skeletal envelope by using space-making barriers. Further, it has been suggested that perforation of the contiguous donor bone enhances bone formation in guided bone augmentation procedures. PURPOSE The goal of the present investigation was to evaluate whether perforations into(More)
The aim of this study was to compare changes in periodontal status in a Swedish population over a period of 20 years. Cross-sectional studies were carried out in Jönköping County in 1973, 1983, and 1993. Individuals were randomly selected from the following age groups: 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70 years. A total of 600 individuals were examined in 1973, 597(More)
6 anatomically complicated periodontal intrabony defects in 6 patients were surgically reconstructed using a bioresorbable GTR barrier supported by cancellous bovine bone mineral. Following cause-related periodontal treatment, open-flap surgery was performed to expose the defects. After debridement, the defects were filled with the bone mineral and covered(More)
PURPOSE Early detection of healing complications after placement of dental implants is a pressing but elusive goal. This paper proposes a non-invasive diagnostic tool for monitoring healing- and peri-implant disease specific genes, complementary to clinical evaluations. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighteen partially edentulous patients were recruited to this(More)
PURPOSE Our primary aim was to use a rabbit guided bone augmentation model to evaluate whether use of autogeneic bone grafts or bovine bone mineral (BBM) combined with a space-making barrier enhances bone augmentation compared with a barrier alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen rabbits were studied. In each rabbit, 2 titanium cylinders, each with 1(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the 5-year outcome of combined use of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) barriers and bovine bone in advanced periodontal defects. MATERIAL AND METHODS In each of 24 patients, one defect was surgically exposed, debrided, filled with bovine bone, and covered with a bioresorbable barrier. Re-examinations were made after 1, 3, and 5 years.(More)
BACKGROUND There is lack of evidence on long-term success of short dental implants in reduced alveolar bone. PURPOSE In this prospective 5-year study, survival and marginal bone loss of 4-mm implants, which supported fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) in severely resorbed posterior mandibles, were evaluated. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 28 patients, evaluation(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding the interfacial reactions to synthetic bone regenerative scaffolds in vivo is fundamental for improving osseointegration and osteogenesis. Using transmission electron microscopy, it is possible to study the biological response of hydroxyapatite (HA) and zirconia (ZrO(2) ) scaffolds at the nanometer scale. PURPOSE In this study,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate 1-year implant survival and marginal bone loss around implants that support fixed partial dentures loaded immediately or after 3 months, and effects from abutment usage. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this 2005 to 2009 randomized, parallel-group, clinical trial, 50 partially edentulous patients each received three Brånemark TiUnite™ implants(More)
The aim of this randomized, double-blind, cross-over pilot study was to evaluate the effect on plaque formation and patient experience of rinsing after periodontal surgery using chlorhexidine solution with or without alcohol. Twenty patients refrained from tooth brushing after surgery and used two mouth rinses.Ten patients used alcohol-based (AB) 0.1% and(More)
