PURPOSE The aim of the article was to introduce a new subantroscopic laterobasal sinus augmentation (SALSA) tecnique as a minimally invasive approach to maxillary peri-implant surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS The SALSA technique consists of the following steps: (1) microsurgical opening of the subantral space (SAS) with detachment of the sinus membrane (SM)(More)
Primary stability of dental implants is mandatory for their osseointegration. A method is described that allows objective measurements of implant displacement in bone sites during lateral loading. Ten samples of bovine bone (2 cm x 2 cm) with bone type II, III, and IV according to Lekholm and Zarb were used for the experiment. Ten Semados dental implants of(More)
Freestanding implants with mandibular overdentures are used frequently after 3 months' healing time. Immediate full loading may be applied to this approach if sufficient primary stability is provided. The present study evaluates the success rate of two single-standing interforaminal implants stabilized with cortical satellite implants and loaded immediately(More)
Electromagnetic articulography, a new tool for the study of articulatory movements, was used for the examination of apical tongue dorsum movements during the production of repeated VCV sequences. In our study of 16 normal German speakers, the trajectories of three apicolingual consonants, /t/, /s/ and /ss/, in an aCa sequence were assessed for inclination(More)
The care of patients with cleft lip, alveolus, and palate demands supervision of the development and progress over a long period of time. It also requires a standardized and systematic basic documentation. In our cleft center the documentation is summarized on one sheet of paper with DIN-A4 formation (297 x 210 mm). The use of electronic data processing(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to assess the effect of satellite implants on the primary stability of dental implants placed in fresh extraction sites in vitro. METHOD 34 titanium screw implants (3.75 mm x 10 mm; Bego, Bremen, Germany) were inserted in premolar- and molar-fresh extraction sites in domestic pig mandibles. Periotest (PT) values were assessed(More)
