AIM The objective of this study was to determine the efficacy of bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) in a bovine hydroxyapatite/collagen (BHC) carrier to augment bone formation in a canine nasal sinus model. METHODS Eight mongrel dogs, approximately 12 months old and 30 kg in weight were used. Following preparation of bilateral sinus access windows, BHC(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated histologically the tissue responses to and the effects of a customized nano-hydroxyapatite (n-HA) block bone graft on periodontal regeneration in a one-wall periodontal-defect model. METHODS A customized block bone for filling in the standardized periodontal defect was fabricated from prefabricated n-HA powders and a polymeric(More)
OBJECTIVES To test whether or not one of two biological mediators (recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) and recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF-BB)) is superior to the other and compared with control groups for bone regeneration around implants based on histomorphometrical outcome measures. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to elucidate the healing pattern of sand-blasted, large grid, acid-etched (SLA)-surfaced implants at two healing periods in a model that represents loosened implants (LIs) installed without mechanical engagement. MATERIAL AND METHODS Five mongrel dogs were used, in which 20 dental implants were prepared. The(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of collagenated biphasic calcium phosphate (CBCP) as a carrier for bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) at the early stage of healing in rabbit sinus. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 16 rabbits, BMP-2-loaded CBCP was grafted into one sinus (the BMP group) and saline-soaked CBCP was grafted(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate 3.5 years-cumulative survival rate of implants placed on augmented sinus using Osteon, a bone graft material, and to assess the height of the grafted material through radiographic evaluation. METHODS Twenty patients were treated with maxillary sinus augmentation and 45 implant fixtures were installed(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to elucidate the effect of a bovine hydroxyapatite/collagen (BHC) block in one-wall intrabony periodontal defects in dogs. METHODS A one-wall intrabony periodontal defect (4 mm wide and 5 mm deep) was prepared bilaterally at the mesial side of the mandibular fourth premolar in five beagle dogs. After thorough root(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to characterize the osseointegration of the fibronectin-coated implant surface. METHODS Sand-blasted, large-grit, acid-etched (SLA) surface implants, with or without a thin calcium phosphate and fibronectin coating, were placed in edentulous mandibles of dogs 8 weeks after extraction. All dogs were sacrificed(More)
PURPOSE The use of appropriate instruments to clean surfaces with minimal change, is critical for the successful maintenance of a dental implant. However, there is no consensus about the type and methodology for such instruments. The aim of this study was to characterize changes in the roughness of titanium surfaces treated by various scaling instruments.(More)
PURPOSE Recent interest has focused on intentional replantation to restore an original tooth. Some studies have shown successful results with intentional replantation for periodontally involved teeth. For long-term success of replantation, a healthy periodontal status of the recipient site is required so that delayed replantation is more suitable for(More)
