BACKGROUND Maxillary sinus floor augmentation is the treatment of choice when insufficient alveolar bone height prevents placement of standard dental implants in the posterior edentulous maxilla. The objective of this study was to histologically and histometrically evaluate new bone formation after maxillary sinus floor augmentation using ground cortical(More)
BACKGROUND Increased collagenolytic activity, characteristic of uncontrolled diabetes, may compromise collagen membrane (CM) survival. Tetracycline (TCN) possesses anticollagenolytic properties and delays CM degradation in healthy animals. This study evaluates the degradation of TCN--immersed and -non-immersed CMs in rats with diabetes compared to those(More)
OBJECTIVE Computer-guided implant placement is a growing treatment modality in partially and totally edentulous patients, though data about the accuracy of some systems for computer-guided surgery is limited. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of a laboratory computer-guided system. STUDY DESIGN A laboratory-based computer guiding(More)
This prospective 3-year follow-up clinical study evaluated the survival and success rates of 3DP/AM titanium dental implants to support single implant-supported restorations. After 3 years of loading, clinical, radiographic, and prosthetic parameters were assessed; the implant survival and the implant-crown success were evaluated. Eighty-two patients (44(More)
BACKGROUND To validate the concept of immediate implant placement and nonfunctional loading for use in the esthetically sensitive anterior maxilla, clinical trials should ideally include objective esthetic criteria. PURPOSE This study analyzed procedural results as graded by the pink esthetic score and white esthetic score (PES/WES). METHODS Thirty-nine(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the regenerative potential of a fully synthesized homogenous hydroxyapatite:β-tricalcium phosphate 60:40 alloplast material in sinus lift procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hydroxyapatite:β-tricalcium phosphate was used for sinus floor augmentation. After 9 months, 12 biopsies were taken from 12 patients. Routine histologic processing(More)
Deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) and human freeze-dried bone allograft (FDBA) were compared in five patients undergoing bilateral maxillary sinus floor augmentation using DBBM on one side and FDBA on the contralateral side. After 9 months, core biopsy specimens were harvested. Mean newly formed bone values were 31.8% and 27.2% at FDBA and DBBM(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively analyze the influence of implant inclination on marginal bone loss at freestanding implant-supported fixed partial prostheses (FPPs) over a medium-term period of functional loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-nine partially edentulous patients with freestanding FPDs supported by two implants placed in a two-stage procedure(More)
The fresh extraction socket site in the immediate post-extraction phase possesses unique characteristic wound healing cascade. Marked horizontal and vertical resorption of the edentulous ridge occurred shortly following tooth extraction. In periodontally involved teeth, when partial/full socket wall destruction is evident, the ingrowth of connective tissue(More)
