BACKGROUND Dental implants vary in design and surfaces. In addition, different surgical techniques have been used for implant insertion. The ITI Dental Implant System (Straumann AG, Waldenburg, Switzerland) has always required a one-stage technique, whereas the Brånemark System (Nobel Biocare AB, Gothenburg, Sweden) requires a two-stage technique.

The aim of the study was to examine the postoperative status one year after partial removal of the third mandibular molar. Thirty-three third molars were selected because of the proximity of the apices to the mandibular canal and/or complicated root anatomy. At a follow-up examination one year postoperatively, clinical and radiological findings were(More)
BACKGROUND Many longitudinal studies of different implant systems have been published but few controlled randomized investigations have been reported. A 1-year report of a comparative study of ITI Dental Implant System implants (Straumann AG, Waldenburg, Switzerland) and Brånemark System implants (Nobel Biocare AB, Gothenburg, Sweden) has been published by(More)
To study the indications used for removal of the mandibular third molar, questionnaires were sent to 35 Oral Surgery Clinics in Sweden, out of which 29 clinics participated. In each clinic, the questionnaires were to be recorded for 30 patients. The indications for removal were classified into 15 groups. There were also questions about symptoms as well as(More)
OBJECTIVES To measure the prevalence of disease of mandibular third molars referred for removal and to estimate the risk for development of pathoses for two cues. STUDY DESIGN A prospective cohort study on molars subjected to removal was performed. The prevalence of different diseases and the patient's age, angular position, and degree of impaction of the(More)
The number of molars selected for prophylactic removal varies widely among general dental practitioners and oral surgeons. To understand the basis for such variations, we investigated two hypotheses: (1) Individual judgment strategies will differ concerning the use of cues (items of information), and (2) few dentists will integrate the cues according to(More)
The aim was to determine whether a visual analogue scale (VAS) is an appropriate way for general dental practitioners and oral surgeons to rate their judgement of the indication for therapy of asymptomatic mandibular third molars. Thirty general dental practitioners and 10 oral surgeons had to judge the need for removal of 36 third molars. They were also(More)
