AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the survival and success of early-loaded implants placed in the intraforaminal area of the edentulous mandible, and the survival of the implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDP). MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-seven patients (18.9% male, mean age 64.5 years) with edentulous lower jaws were treated with(More)
In humans, pathogenesis in cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced gingival overgrowth (GO) includes the accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) constituents, viz., collagen type-1 and type-3 and proteoglycans, in subgingival connective tissue. However, whether this increase is associated with alterations of molecules pivotal for the turn-over of collagens and(More)
OBJECTIVES It has been demonstrated that extracellular matrix molecules are involved in cyclosporine-induced gingival overgrowth (GO). However, for many of these molecules, it remains unclear whether their abundance is modulated on the protein and gene expression level. MATERIAL AND METHODS To contribute to this clarification, we have analysed the protein(More)
The purpose of this prospective cohort study was to assess the performance of tooth-supported, long-span, zirconia fixed dental prostheses (FDPs). Thirty FDPs with span lengths from 36 to 46 mm (mean 40·33 mm), with 4-7 units and with connector dimensions ∼9 mm(2) were inserted (19 in the posterior region, 11 including anterior teeth) using glass-ionomer(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this prospective randomized controlled trial was to evaluate the influence of clinical baseline characteristics on the survival of 2 post systems. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred patients needing a post were included. Half the patients received a glass fiber-reinforced post (FRP), and the other half received metal screw posts (MSP).(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) diagnoses to predict pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred forty-nine patients were examined by 2 calibrated examiners in strict accordance with the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular(More)
OBJECTIVES The purposes of this study were to evaluate the push-out strength of core-build-up resin used for fiber-post cementation and to test the effects of different post and dentin pretreatment for different regions of the root. METHODS After endodontic treatment 216 human teeth received a glass-fiber post. The teeth were divided into test groups to(More)
The purpose of this prospective cohort study was to assess the performance of tooth-supported, extended zirconia, fixed dental prostheses (FDPs). Thirty FDPs with span-lengths between 36 and 46 mm (mean: 40.33 mm), four to seven units and with connector dimensions of approximately 9 mm(2) were inserted (19 in the posterior region, 11 including anterior(More)
The objective of this retrospective study was to compare biological and technical complications of implant-supported and tooth-implant-supported double crown-retained dentures (DCRDs) with those of tooth-supported DCRDs. Sixty-three DCRDs were monitored. One study group included 16 prostheses with a combination of implants and natural teeth as double crowns(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this clinical study was to evaluate survival and incidence of complications for metal-ceramic and all-ceramic implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) and tooth-implant-supported FDPs. MATERIAL AND METHODS One-hundred and sixty-six FDPs placed in 132 patients from a prospective study were selected for this retrospective(More)
