OBJECTIVES The aim of this experimental study was to test a mixture of hydroxyapatite (HA) and beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) granules inserted in cranial defects in rabbits, by the evaluation of the hard tissues volume, new bone formation, and residual graft after 4 and 8 weeks. MATERIAL AND METHODS Two defects of 8 mm diameter were created at the(More)
PURPOSE Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been investigated as a novel diagnostic imaging tool. The utilisation of this equipment has been evaluated through several studies in the field of dentistry. The aim of this preliminary study was to determine through basic experiments the effectiveness of OCT in implant dentistry. MATERIALS AND METHODS To(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate whether early loading of implants with a chemically modified sandblasted, large-grit, acid-etched (SLA) (SLActive®) surface was non-inferior to conventional loading in terms of change in crestal bone level. METHODS This was a randomized, controlled, multicenter study. Patients requiring single-tooth(More)
Maxillary sinus floor elevation using autologous or alloplastic bone grafting is often performed for implant treatment of maxillary molars; however, issues related to the donor site and complications such as infection have been reported. We performed maxillary sinus floor elevation using poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) as a space-making material in patients with(More)
Rehabilitation of oral function using dental implants is clinically effective and highly predictable. Bone quantity and quality at the implant site both affect the success of the procedure. However, the effect of bisphosphonate (BP) use on mandibular bone quality has not been well documented. The purpose of this retrospective cohort study was to evaluate(More)
