BACKGROUND An increased number of publications report that one-stage surgery and immediate/early loading of dental implants may be a feasible approach for prosthetic reconstruction of the edentate patient. However, little is known about the histologic response to implants subjected to immediate/early loading in patients. PURPOSE The aim of the present(More)
PURPOSE Our primary aim was to use a rabbit guided bone augmentation model to evaluate whether use of autogeneic bone grafts or bovine bone mineral (BBM) combined with a space-making barrier enhances bone augmentation compared with a barrier alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen rabbits were studied. In each rabbit, 2 titanium cylinders, each with 1(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown the formation of more bone contacts with a moderately rough and porous titanium surface, created by anodic oxidation, as compared with nonmodified turned titanium control surfaces. The mechanisms leading to a stronger bone response to oxidized titanium are not well understood. PURPOSE The aim of the study was to(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the integration and implant stability of turned and oxidized titanium implants when placed in experimental bone defects with autogenous bone graft, BMP-2 or without adjunctive therapy. Four defects were prepared on each side of the mandible of 12 mongrel dogs five months after tooth extractions. Implants with turned and(More)
