PURPOSE To evaluate if an inorganic graft applied before implant insertion interferes with osseointegration. MATERIALS AND METHODS The bilateral mandibular incisors of 12 rabbits were extracted. One of the sockets was randomly filled with an inorganic xenogenic bone graft, whereas the remaining socket was allowed to heal naturally and served as a control.(More)

OBJECTIVE This study compared the influence of three epoxy resin-based sealers with distinct radiopacities on the observers' ability to detect root canal filling voids during radiographic analysis. MATERIAL AND METHODS The root canals of 48 extracted maxillary canines were prepared and divided into three groups. Each group was laterally condensed with one(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the oral health status of users of illicit drugs such as marijuana and cocaine/crack and compare it with individuals not using these chemical substances.
