Three-dimensional finite elemental analysis of zygomatic implants in craniofacial structures.
An integrated system for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data were utilized to create a three-dimensional model of craniofacial structures that provided details of anatomical structures in the regions of interest. Expand
Internal structure of zygomatic bone related to zygomatic fixture.
The present findings suggest that the presence of wider and thicker trabeculae at the end of the fixture promotes initial fixation and better understanding of the internal structure of the zygomatic bone will provide further information about the direction of installation of thezygomatic fixture, the ideal position of theZygomatic fixtures, and the prognosis of implant therapy.

Study on internal structure of zygomatic bone using micro-finite element analysis model--differences between dentulous and edentulous dentition in Japanese cadavers.
The muFEA modeling revealed that the angle of the trabeculae at the Jugale in edentulous jaws was lower than that in dentulous jaws, which suggests that the internal structure of trabECulae is influenced by occlusal force in zygomatic bone from edENTulous jaws. Expand
Octacalcium phosphate collagen composites with titanium mesh facilitate alveolar augmentation in canine mandibular bone defects.
Results indicated that vertical bone regeneration by OCP/Col was efficient and successful when the mechanical stress to the implanted OCP /Col was alleviated, and should be a useful bone substitute with active structural reconstitution. Expand
Observation of the Internal Structure of the Zygomatic Bone by Micro-Computed Tomography
Findings indicate that stress from biting force influences the trabecular structure in the zygomatic bone, and suggest that stress in theZygomaticBone is concentrated in the Ju area, because the masseter muscle and fascia temporalis adhere to the zykomatic bone. Expand
