Twelve- to 17-year-old Douglas-fir grafts, which in 1985 received no treatment, stem girdles only (G), or girdles plus stem injection of gibberellin A4/7 (G + GA) at vegetative bud burst, were in 1987 retreated with G + GA or left untreated. Tree were untreated in 1986 and cone production the following year was very sparse. G + GA treatment in 1987(More)
Well-trained, competitive swimmers were divided into two groups. Group A was given 900 IU alpha-tocopherol acetate daily for 6 months while group B was given placebos. A swimming endurance test was given before the start of supplementation and after 1, 2, 5 and 6 months. No difference in swimmers' endurance was observed between the two groups during the(More)
The furcation entrance diameter of first permanent molar teeth has been investigated in a sample of 114 maxillary and 103 mandibular teeth, and found to be smaller than the blade face width of commonly used periodontal curettes in 58% of the furcations examined. It is suggested that because of this size disparity curettes when used alone may not be suitable(More)
15 mandibular fixed prostheses supported by osseointegrated titanium implants were examined 3 years after insertion. No implants had been lost after 3 years and all prostheses were present and continuously functional. The morphotypic analysis of the microbial plaque taken from titanium implants adjacent to clinically inflamed tissues was different from that(More)
Long-term retrospective studies on the efficacy of implant retained bridgework are relatively few. In this study, 10 year follow-up results are reported on the rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible with osseointegrated implant anchored bridges. Fifteen patients were closely maintained and monitored using the conventional indices used in longitudinal(More)
Pulpless teeth require reinforcement if they are to act as supports for crown and bridgework restorations. Post core reinforcements can be accomplished by utilization of post core systems which offer the clinician a broad range of techniques. The mechanical procedures involved should be biologically oriented and related to stress distribution to the tooth(More)
A panel of monoclonal antibodies was used in an avidinbiotin immunoperoxidase technique to provide an immunohistologic analysis of the inflammatory infiltrates in the gingiva of osseointegrated implants. A total of 27 gingival and 13 interimplant specimens was obtained from 13 patients. Eighteen of the gingival specimens were clinically healthy, while nine(More)
