Many materials are used for sinus augmentation procedures. Anorganic bovine bone (Bio-Oss) has been reported to be osteoconductive, and no inflammatory responses have been observed with the use of this biomaterial. One of the main questions pertaining to Bio-Oss concerns its biodegradation and substitution by host bone. Some investigators have observed(More)
The developments in the technologies based on the use of autologous adipose tissue attracted attention to minor depots as possible sampling areas. Some of those depots have never been studied in detail. The present study was performed on subcutaneous adipose depots sampled in different areas with the aim of explaining their morphology, particularly as far(More)
OBJECTIVE Rehabilitation of the edentulous posterior maxilla with dental implants can be difficult because of insufficient bone volume caused by pneumatization of the maxillary sinus and crestal bone resorption. Different biomaterials have been used for sinus augmentation. The aim of the study was to compare different materials in maxillary sinus(More)
Biological interactions occurring at the bone-biomaterial interface are critical for long-term clinical success. Bio-Oss is a deproteinized, sterilized bovine bone that has been extensively used in bone regeneration procedures. The aim of the present study was a comparative light, scanning, and electron microscopy evaluation of the interface between Bio-Oss(More)
Evidence that nanoscale surface properties stimulate and guide various molecular and biological processes at the implant/tissue interface is fostering a new trend in designing implantable metals. Cutting-edge expertise and techniques drawn from widely separated fields, such as nanotechnology, materials engineering and biology, have been advantageously(More)
PepGen P-15 is a combination natural anorganic bovine-derived hydroxyapatite matrix (ABM) coupled with a synthetic cell-binding peptide (P-15). This material has been reported to enhance bone formation in periodontal osseous defects. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of ABM/P-15 on the healing of cortical bone defects in rabbits. Five New(More)
Pulp inflammation in restored teeth is mainly due to the presence of bacteria or bacterial products introduced by microleakage around the restoration or to the material toxicity. Recent knowledge has permitted a precise identification of the risks for pulpal irritation associated with adhesive materials and procedures. The purpose of this work was to(More)
BACKGROUND Placement of dental implants in the posterior maxilla has been associated with higher rates of failure that are due, in part, to the poor bone quality of this region. The purpose of the present study was the histologic and histomorphometric evaluation of the bone around a new implant surface treatment created by a deposition of nanometer-sized(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Several dentifrices have shown to be effective in reducing dentine hypersensitivity (DH), but more effective products are needed. The aim of the study was to evaluate the desensitizing efficacy of a new dentifrice based on zinc-carbonate hydroxyapatite (CHA) nanocrystals. METHODS AND MATERIALS Using a double-blind, randomized design,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate microtensile bond strength and interfacial nanoleakage expression of adhesive interfaces created by XP-Bond on human deproteinized dentin immediately after bonding and after 6 months of artificial aging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Noncarious human molars were selected, middle/deep dentin substrates were exposed, and either assigned to group(More)
