Many executives are surprised when previously successful leadership approaches fail in new situations, but different contexts call for different kinds of responses. Before addressing a situation, leaders need to recognize which context governs it -and tailor their actions accordingly. Snowden and Boone have formed a new perspective on leadership and(More)
The effect of autogenous marrow and calcitonin on reactions to a tricalcium phosphate ceramic was studied by subcutaneous implantation in rats. No bone formation was evident in association with uncoated and calcitonin-coated ceramic. At four weeks and thereafter bone formation was evident in association with all marrow-coated implants.
With the advent of newer methods of activation of the polymerization of denture base resins, there is a need to compare dentures constructed using various modes of activation such as heat, light, and microwave energy. This study compares the dimensional accuracy of a conventional heat-activated acrylic resin poly (methyl methacrylate) with a new pour resin,(More)
This in vitro investigation evaluated methods of investing a maxillary denture (1) by using a silicone rubber and gypsum base covering all the artificial teeth and (2) by following the generally accepted procedure of investing in a total gypsum environment. The amount of vertical opening found in dentures processed with silicone investment was approximately(More)
A porous form of tricalcium phosphate ceramic has been shown to stimulate new bone formation around the implant. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate this material in a powder form as a pulp-capping material. It was found difficult to cover a pulp exposure adequately with Synthos ceramic powder alone. Histologic sections showed dentinogenesis(More)
A technique was developed for evaluating in vitro the accuracy or fit of experimental denture bases using a low-viscosity impression material for determining the space between the master die and the processed denture base. These measurements indicated that relining heat-cured maxillary denture bases with autopolymerizing acrylic resin improved their(More)
