Classification of osseointegrated implant surfaces: materials, chemistry and topography.
Since the founding of the osseointegration concept, the characteristics of the interface between bone and implant, and possible ways to improve it, have been of particular interest in dental andExpand

Basic research methods and current trends of dental implant surfaces.
Among dental implant design alterations, surface modifications have been by far the most investigated topic. Regarding implant surface research, the lack of hierarchical approaches relating in vitro,Expand

Performance of Dental Ceramics: Challenges for Improvements
The clinical success of modern dental ceramics depends on an array of factors, ranging from initial physical properties of the material itself, to the fabrication and clinical procedures that inevitably damage these brittle materials, and the oral environment. Expand

Numerical modeling of bone tissue adaptation--a hierarchical approach for bone apparent density and trabecular structure.
In this work, a three-dimensional model for bone remodeling is presented, taking into account the hierarchical structure of bone. The process of bone tissue adaptation is mathematically describedExpand

Thermal/mechanical simulation and laboratory fatigue testing of an alternative yttria tetragonal zirconia polycrystal core-veneer all-ceramic layered crown design.
This study evaluated the stress levels at the core layer and the veneer layer of zirconia crowns (comprising an alternative core design vs. a standard core design) under mechanical/thermalExpand

Influence of implant shape, surface morphology, surgical technique and bone quality on the primary stability of dental implants.
The primary stability of dental implants has been investigated before, but a study of the influence of implant shape, size and surface morphology (machined, acid etched or anodized), surgicalExpand

Surface characterisation and bonding of Y-TZP following non-thermal plasma treatment.
OBJECTIVES (1) To chemically characterise Y-TZP surface via X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and evaluate the surface energy levels (SE) after non-thermal plasma (NTP). (2) To test theExpand
