The purpose of this study was to determine the cross-sectional geometry and mass density distribution of a young porcine subject using the X-ray computerized tomographic (CT) method and to perform a comparative study of anatomical features of this subject and a 3 yr old female child specimen. The cross-sectional CT scans of the porcine subject were obtained(More)
We combined whole-cell recordings with Neurobiotin labeling to examine the electrophysiological and morphological properties of neurons from the ventral subicular complex in vitro (including the subicular, presubicular, and parasubicular areas). No a priori morphological sampling criteria were used to select cells. Cells were classified as bursting (IB),(More)
BACKGROUND This systematic review was requested by the Task Force of the American Academy of Periodontology as a follow-up study of the 2013 report, with an aim to investigate the efficacy of different surgical approaches to treat peri-implantitis. METHODS A search of four electronic databases from January 1990 to May 2013 was performed. Studies included(More)
BACKGROUND This study aims to compare the survival rate of short (<10 mm) and standard (≥10 mm) rough-surface dental implants under functional loading. METHODS An electronic literature search using PubMed and Medline databases was conducted. Prospective clinical human trials, published in English from January 1997 to July 2011, that examined dental(More)
PURPOSE The primary aim of this systematic review was to compare the amount of marginal bone loss around tilted and straight implants. As the secondary aim, the incidence of biomechanic complications was compared. MATERIALS AND METHODS An electronic literature search from five databases, for the years 2000 to 2011, and a hand search in implant-related(More)
PURPOSE This systematic review aimed to evaluate the effect of implant length on peri-implant marginal bone loss (MBL) and its associated influencing factors. MATERIAL AND METHODS An electronic search of the PubMed and MEDLINE databases for relevant studies published in English from November 2006 to July 2012 was performed by one examiner (AM). Selected(More)
BACKGROUND This meta-analysis of prospective clinical trials was conducted to determine the effects of dental implant length and width on implant survival rate of short (<10 mm) implants. METHODS An electronic search of the PubMed database for relevant studies published in English from November 1998 to March 2012 was performed. Selected studies were(More)
In spite of the large variability of the fraction of bursting cells reported in the subiculum (from 54 to 100%), this structure has been considered as intrinsically bursting. Here, using visually assisted whole-cell recordings and Neurobiotin labeling in vitro, we correlated the electrophysiological firing modes of subicular cells (bursting, regular-spiking(More)
OBJECTIVE Nonsurgical treatment has been shown to be effective in dealing with inflammatory lesions around implant without bone loss. However, when bone loss is noticed, surgical treatment may be needed. Nonetheless, before the surgical approaches can be effective, the contaminated implant surface has to be detoxified. Many detoxifying agents/techniques(More)
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was to evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant diseases. A(More)
