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)
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)
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)
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 was to examine oral surgeons' assessment of the indications for removal of mandibular third molars. Questionnaires were distributed to seven oral and maxillofacial surgery clinics. The oral surgeons were asked to record whether or not there was associated disease. Three other factors were recorded: patient's age, and angular position and extent of(More)
Thirty general dental practitioners were asked to evaluate the need for extraction of asymptomatic mandibular third molars. Thirty-six mandibular third molars with equal distribution of angular positions, impaction status, males and females and age groups were selected. To estimate the consistency of the evaluation, the 36 cases were duplicated so that, in(More)
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)
