BACKGROUND Although most implant systems have been designed for a two-stage surgical technique, a one-stage surgical technique has always been advocated for the ITI Dental Implant System (Straumann AG, Waldenburg, Switzerland). A new generation of ITI implants was presented in 1988 and included a hollow cylinder, a hollow screw, and a solid screw. PURPOSE(More)
Non-submerged ITI Bonefit implants (ITI Dental Implant System) were inserted in edentulous lower jaws of 46 patients. The patients were provided with either a fixed prosthesis or an overdenture, and has been followed during a 2-year-period. At the 1-year examination, the suprastructures were removed permitting test of the individual implant stability.(More)

Although several clinical studies are available, there is a lack as regard the genetic effects. Because PP is always fixed on bone and the mechanism by which PP acts on osteoblasts is unknown, we therefore attempted to address this question by using(More)
In the present investigation the microstructure and bonding between the wrought and cast elements of the post and core specimens were evaluated with respect to the preheating temperature of the investment. Clinically sized specimens were produced from one type III gold casting alloy in combination with two different wrought wire precious alloys. Preheating(More)
