BACKGROUND Recent clinical studies have described maxillary sinus floor augmentation by simply elevating the maxillary sinus membrane without the use of adjunctive grafting materials. PURPOSE This experimental study aimed at comparing the histologic outcomes of sinus membrane elevation and simultaneous placement of implants with and without adjunctive(More)
Two bovine hydroxyapatites (BHAs), one with granule size of 150 to 200 microm and one with granule size of 300 to 329 micro, and 2 synthetic hydroxyapatites (SHAs), with granule size of 150 and 300 microm, respectively, were compared for effectiveness in repairing circumferential bone defects in dogs. The hydroxyapatites (HAs) were characterized through(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of implant length (6 mm vs.11 mm) on osseointegration (bone-to-implant contact) of implants installed into sockets immediately after tooth extraction. MATERIAL AND METHODS In six Labrador dogs, the pulp tissue of the mesial roots of (3) P(3) was removed and the root canals were filled. Flaps were elevated bilaterally, the(More)
The information concerning the molecular events taking place in onlay bone grafts are still incipient. The objective of the present study is to correlate the effects of perforation of resident bone bed on (1) the timing of onlay autogenous graft revascularization; (2) the maintenance of volume/density of the graft (assessed through tomography); and (3) the(More)
AIM To evaluate the influence of magnesium-enriched hydroxyapatite (MHA) (SintLife(®)) on bone contour preservation and osseointegration at implants placed immediately into extraction sockets. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the mandibular pre-molar region, implants were installed immediately into extraction sockets of six Labrador dogs. MHA was placed at test(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have pointed out that the mere elevation of the maxillary sinus membrane promotes bone formation without the use of augmentation materials. PURPOSE This experimental study aimed at evaluating if the two-stage procedure for sinus floor augmentation could benefit from the use of a space-making device in order to increase the bone(More)
Several materials and techniques have been proposed to improve alveolar wound healing and decrease loss of bone height and thickness that normally follow dental extraction. The objective of this research was the histologic analysis of bone morphogenetic proteins implanted into dental alveoli of rats after extraction. A total of 45 adult male Wistar rats(More)
Schwannoma (neurilemmoma) is a benign neoplasm originated from the neural sheath and occurring most frequently in the head and neck. Intraosseous schwannomas are rare. The mandible is the most common site of occurrence for these lesions. This article reports the case of an intraosseous schwannoma located in the mandibular symphysis of an 11-year-old boy.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the periapical tissue response of 4 different retrograde root-filling materials, ie, intermediate restorative material, thermoplasticized gutta-percha, reinforced zinc oxide cement (Super-EBA), and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), in conjunction with an ultrasonic root-end preparation technique in an animal model. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Since the discovery of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), the number of related studies has increased substantially, and more recent outcomes have cast encouraging perspectives on their use in reconstructive surgery. PURPOSE The aim of the present review was to summarize the present knowledge about the use of BMPs in conjunction with dental(More)
