PURPOSE To measure the long-term changes of clinical crown height in patients treated with single-implant crowns and compare them to those of an adult population with normal dentition. MATERIALS AND METHODS The test group comprised 23 patients, consecutively restored with a total of 48 single-implant crowns in the anterior maxilla. Mean age was(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with buccal defects due to tooth extraction seem to regain some of the contour at the time of abutment surgery and connection of single-implant crown restorations. It can then be assumed that different abutment systems could restore the buccal contour to different degrees. PURPOSE To measure changes in buccal tissue volume after(More)
The relation between the basal and stimulated gastric acid secretion, plasma gastrin, and the gastric microflora was examined in 45 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Sixteen patients (36%) had basal achlorhydria, and of these, 10 (22%) had achlorhydria or hypochlorhydria after stimulation with pentagastrin. The peak acid output and acidity showed inverse(More)
The occurrence of autoantibodies against intrinsic factor, H,K-ATPase, and pepsinogen was analysed by means of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in three groups of sera. Group 1 comprised sera from 14 rheumatoid arthritis patients with normal acid secretion; group 2, sera from 18 rheumatoid arthritis patients with reduced acid secretion; and group 3, sera(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical performance of customized ceramic single-implant abutments in combination with two different techniques for fabricating crowns. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty consecutive patients were provided with 24 single-implant restorations with customized ceramic abutments. The restorations were either(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the microflora-associated characteristics (MACs) of faecal samples of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to evaluate the actions of sulphasalazine (SASP) on these MACs. The conversion of cholesterol to coprostanol, the production of urobilinogen, the degradation of faecal tryptic activity (FTA) and of(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the prevalence and magnitude of tooth movements adjacent to single-implant crowns in a long-term study, and to discuss these changes in relation to changes in cephalometric measurements of a reference group after 10 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five of an original group of 39 patients, consecutively restored with single-implant(More)
It has been stated that ibuprofen can be safely prescribed with concomitant warfarin. The effect of ibuprofen on primary haemostasis was investigated in 20 patients on warfarin for venous thromboembolism. Ibuprofen, 600 mg orally t.i.d., was added for 1 week. Bleeding time, prothrombin time, platelet count and urinalysis for haemoglobin were performed(More)
A 4-year-old Labrador Retriever was examined because of progressive left hind limb lameness involving the stifle. A villous synovial mass was evacuated by synovectomy. Initially, the macroscopic and histopathologic features suggested a malignant fibrosarcomatous process; however, further histologic studies revealed lesions consistent with pigmented(More)
