PURPOSE The aim of this 10 year retrospective study was to evaluate the crestal bone loss around immediate implant placed in tricalcium phosphate (TCP) grafted extraction sockets MATERIALS AND METHODS Data were collected from files of 58 patients (33 females, 25 males, average age 54.78 years) undergoing immediate implant placement into fresh extraction(More)
OBJECTIVES To retrospectively evaluate the clinical outcome of tapered, multithreaded implants (Tapered Screw-Vent MTX; Zimmer Dental, Inc, Carlsbad, CA) with an emphasis on periimplant crestal bone status around those placed delayed and immediately in the posterior and anterior maxilla. METHODS Chart reviews were performed on 46 patients who had been(More)
Gene therapy has been at least partially effective in several mouse disease models, but treatment of large mammals has been more difficult to achieve. One major limitation is that only low levels of expression of the corrective gene are often maintained in vivo. In a mouse model of the lysosomal storage disease mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type VII (Sly(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of two putty-wash impression techniques on the long-term accuracy and dimensional stability of poly(vinyl siloxane) (PVS) in the gingival sulcus area. MATERIALS AND METHODS Impressions were taken from a master cast to simulate molar crown preparation. A space around the abutment served as the gingival sulcus. Fifteen(More)
The dimensional stability of a thin intra sulcular impression material reproducing the preparation finish line was evaluated. Impressions were taken of a stainless-steel master model of a simulated abutment with a 'gingival sulcus' using Express regular, Express fast and Aquasil. The putty-wash two-step technique was applied with spacer thicknesses of 0.5,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the effects of immediate loading (IL) and delayed loading (DL) on peri-implant crestal bone loss around maxillary implants after long-term functioning. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective chart review was conducted to assess the outcomes of 110 tapered, multithreaded implants placed for the treatment of one(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to measure and compare the strain levels in peri-implant bone as generated by 1-piece (1P) and 2-piece (2P) implant systems. MATERIALS AND METHODS The implants (1P and 2P) were placed into bovine bone according to the manufacturer's protocol. Four linear strain gauges were placed around each implant neck and apex.(More)
The red cells of two sisters had very weak Cra and Tca antigens and reacted only weakly with the antibody of the Cr(a-) Tc(a-)person, Inab. Both sisters had an antibody, named anti-Dra, to a high frequency antigen absent from their own cells and Inab cells but present on Cr(a-) Tc(a+) and on Cr(a+) Tc(a-) cells. This is the third example in which both Cra(More)
PURPOSE To compare time-dependent outcome of immediately loaded 1-piece (1P) implants with delayed loaded 1P and 2-piece (2P) implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS A cohort of 33 patients divided into 3 groups: group A, 13 patients, 49 immediately placed and loaded 1P implants; group B, 11 patients, immediately placed and delayed loaded 1P implants; and group(More)
Fixed implant supported single crowns and fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) have become an accepted treatment option for replacing and restoring missing teeth. Recent systematic reviews summarized excellent 5- and 10-year survival rates for both reconstruction types. In screw-retained restorations, the fastening screw provides a solid joint between the(More)
