The selection of the appropriate alignment of an implant and the position of implantation are vital for its longterm success. Excessive load is generated around inclined implants, causing microcracks in the bone, which result in implant loosening and eventual failure. This study was designed to analyze the stress distribution caused by varying the degree of(More)
The purpose of this experiment was to observe and measure the distribution of heat to bones and the maximum temperature that developed when cutting bone with drills. Generation of heat that spread in the presence or absence of irrigation when drilling with IMZ, Brånemark, and ITI implant (F type) drills was observed in the pig rib via thermography. Without(More)
6-Amidino-2-naphthyl [4-(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl) amino]benzoate dimethanesulphonate has been developed for the therapy of pancreatitis. A reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic assay of the levels of this drug and its metabolites in biological fluids was investigated. Fluorescence detection with post-column alkaline degradation was(More)
The following case report describes the buccal and coronal bone augmentation around an irretrievable tooth using forced eruption and buccal root torque for immediate nonsubmerged implant placement. A mandibular left second premolar with degree 2 mobility, severe buccal bone resorption, and interproximal angular bony defects was subjected to forced eruption(More)
Our previous study detected a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), g.1471620G>T, in the 5' flanking region of the endothelial differentiation sphingolipid G-protein-coupled receptor 1 (EDG1) gene, which has been considered as a positional functional candidate for the gene responsible for marbling, and showed association of the g.1471620G>T SNP with(More)
A simple and highly sensitive method has been developed for the determination in plasma of ciprostene, 9 beta-methyl-6 alpha-carbaprostaglandin I2, using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry following solid-phase extraction on an immobilized antibody column. The anti-ciprostene antibody obtained from rabbit serum was coupled to an agarose support matrix,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the adaptability of fracture toughness evaluation and the relationship between three testing methods: single-edge notched beam fracture toughness test (SENB), indentation fracture toughness test (IF), and notchless triangular prism fracture toughness test (NTP). METHODS Two types of indirect composite,(More)
A highly skilled surgical technic is an important factor for the success of implant. But the heat generation during bone preparation will greatly affect the healing process of bone and prognosis of implant. In this study, the heat occurrence and distribution during bone preparation which performed on an in vitro mandible model (ribs of pig) were considered(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to clarify the effect of holding condition with different prism length on the Notchless Triangular Prism (NTP) fracture toughness test and to define the prism length as a measuring condition. METHODS Two kinds of NTP prism (ceramic and composite resin) were fabricated by CAD/CAM and each prism was adjusted to one of(More)
