AIM To systematically review the literature to compare implant survival (IS) and marginal bone loss (MBL) around platform-switched (PS) versus conventionally restored platform-matching dental implants. MATERIAL AND METHODS Randomized, controlled human clinical trials (RCTs) comparing IS and MBL in PS and conventionally restored implants, with 12 months of(More)
Bone regeneration strategies in dentistry utilize biodegradable scaffolds seeded with stem cells able to induce bone formation. However, data on regeneration capacity of these tissue engineering constructs are still deficient. In this study micro-Computed tomography (micro-CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) analyses were used to investigate bone(More)
Many articles have detailed local accidents and complications in dental implant treatment. Comparisons of the data they report are not always easy because different criteria have been followed in the various classifications and there is confusion between the terms accident and complication. The aim of this paper is to propose a classification that considers(More)
BACKGROUND It has been hypothesized that a certain width of the peri-implant mucosa is required to enable a proper epithelial-connective tissue attachment and, if this soft tissue dimension is not adequate, bone resorption will occur to ensure the establishment of attachment with an appropriate biological width. The reason for the accelerated bone loss(More)
Growing evidence has suggested the utility of short dental implants for oral reconstructive procedures in clinical situations of limited vertical bone height. The aim of this review was to systematically evaluate clinical studies of implants < 10 mm in length, to determine short implant-supported prosthesis success in the atrophic jaw. Implant survival,(More)
PURPOSE Lasers have been extensively used in dentistry for several applications. We investigated and compared the use of an erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser and conventional rotary instruments for bone removal in third molar surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS We implemented a randomized, split-mouth clinical trial. Patients with bilateral and symmetrical(More)
AIM Stem cell research in recent years have been considered the most advanced sort of medical-scientific research and early results have aroused great expectations. Also in dentistry many studies were performed with the final aim of obtaining new bone and new teeth. In this work we describe the state of the art in dental science stem cell research. (More)
PURPOSE To review the clinical outcomes of immediate, early, and conventional single-tooth implant placement in mandibular or maxillary first molar sites. MATERIALS AND METHODS The charts of patients treated consecutively for first molar replacement according to unconventional (immediate = group 1, early = group 2) or conventional (late = group 3)(More)
BACKGROUND This prospective case series aimed to assess the clinical stability of maxillary sinus floors regenerated with mineralized, solvent-dehydrated bone allograft (MSDBA) and restored with dental implants after at least 5 years of function. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven sinuses in 7 patients (4 bilateral) were augmented with 50% cortical and 50%(More)
AIM To assess the clinical and radiographic outcomes of immediate transmucosal placement of implants into molar extraction sockets. STUDY DESIGN Twelve-month multicenter prospective cohort study. MATERIAL AND METHODS Following molar extraction, tapered implants with an endosseous diameter of 4.8 mm and a shoulder diameter of 6.5 mm were immediately(More)
