The interleukin-1 genotype as a severity factor in adult periodontal disease.
Although specific bacteria, dental plaque, and age are associated with periodontal disease, there are currently no reliable predictors of periodontitis severity. Studies in twins have suggested aExpand

Biologic width around titanium implants. A histometric analysis of the implanto-gingival junction around unloaded and loaded nonsubmerged implants in the canine mandible.
The use of endosseous dental implants as transmucosal devices necessitates the successful integration of three different tissues: bone, connective tissue, and epithelium. So far, studies haveExpand

Biologic width around titanium implants. A physiologically formed and stable dimension over time.
Research in implant dentistry has mainly focused on hard tissue integration with much less data available with regards to soft tissue integration involving epithelium and connective tissue. In theExpand

Bone response to loaded implants with non-matching implant-abutment diameters in the canine mandible.
BACKGROUND One way to evaluate various implant restorations is to measure the amount of bone change that occurs at the crestal bone. The objective of this study was to histologically evaluate theExpand

Bone response to unloaded and loaded titanium implants with a sandblasted and acid-etched surface: a histometric study in the canine mandible.
Many dental clinical implant studies have focused on the success of endosseous implants with a variety of surface characteristics. Most of the surface alterations have been aimed at achieving greaterExpand

Evaluation of an endosseous titanium implant with a sandblasted and acid-etched surface in the canine mandible: radiographic results.
Previous studies have demonstrated in short-term experiments that sandblasted and acid-etched (SLA) titanium implant had a greater bone-to-implant contact than a titanium plasma-sprayed (TPS) implantExpand

Marginal discrepancy of screw-retained and cemented metal-ceramic crowns on implants abutments.
This in vitro study quantified the marginal discrepancy of the implant-to-prosthetic-crown interface on nonsubmerged dental implants restored with either a cemented or a screw-retained approach.Expand
