STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The literature indicates that 0.5 to 1.5 mm of gingival recession most often occurs within the first months after implant placement or abutment connection. PURPOSE The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the effect of a concave transmucosal profile on the vertical stability of soft tissues at the facial aspect of dental(More)
INTRODUCTION Autogenous bone is the most successful bone-grafting material; however, multiple disadvantages continue to drive developments of improved methods for bone regeneration. AIM The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that an arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) modified polyethylene glycol-based matrix (PEG) containing covalently(More)
Some authors claim that occlusal appliances can enhance athletic performance. Therefore, this study investigated the influence of dental occlusion on knee muscle strength performance. Twelve healthy female subjects (mean age, 24.1 ± 3.1 years) without temporomandibular joint dysfunction participated in this study. Isokinetic quadriceps and hamstring(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate clinical and soft/hard tissues histomorphological outcomes of a ceramic implant comparatively to a titanium implant in a minipig model. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighteen soft tissue level implants (9 Ceramic with ZLA(®) surface as test, and 9 titanium SLActive(®) as control, Institut Straumann, Basel,(More)
AIM The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of a modified transgingival implant collar surface (acid-etched structure and hydrophilic properties) comparatively to a machined collar surface on the clinical and soft tissue integration to pure titanium implants (Ti) and titanium implants alloyed with zirconium (TiZr).
