Tissue integration of non-submerged implants. 1-year results of a prospective study with 100 ITI hollow-cylinder and hollow-screw implants.
It has been postulated that the wound healing in a closed submerged location is one of the prerequisites for osseointegration of dental implants. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate theExpand

Soft tissue reactions to non-submerged unloaded titanium implants in beagle dogs.
The soft tissue reactions to non-submerged unloaded titanium implants were examined. A total of 24 implants were placed in 6 beagle dogs. The implants differed in their crestal area by having eitherExpand
