Genetic polymorphisms of the interleukin-1 gene and early marginal bone loss around endosseous dental implants.
Dental implant surgery commonly proceeds in two stages. It is generally accepted that bone loss around implants does not occur at stage-II surgery because implants do not receive mechanical loading.Expand

Vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism is associated with chronic periodontitis.
Chronic periodontitis (CP) is caused by enhanced resorption of the alveolar bone supporting the teeth and is associated with intraoral inflammation after infection with certain bacteria. The VDR geneExpand

A Japanese multicenter study of osseointegrated implants placed in irradiated tissues: a preliminary report.
A survey was undertaken to analyze implants placed in irradiated tissues. It was found that nine centers had placed 118 implants in 24 patients in Japan. Of 118 implants, 39 were in the maxilla, 71Expand

Association of vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism with periodontal diseases in Japanese and Chinese.
We examined whether polymorphisms in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene are associated with the incidence of adult periodontitis (AP) and early-onset periodontitis (EOP) in case-controlled studies ofExpand

Bone morphogenetic protein-4 gene polymorphism and early marginal bone loss around endosseous implants.
PURPOSE At stage II surgery during dental implant treatment, early marginal bone loss around the implant occasionally occurs despite a lack of apparent causal events, and the etiology of this boneExpand

Placement of implants in distraction osteogenesis: a pilot study in dogs.
This study investigated the possibility of achieving osseointegration of implants placed in a distracted site during the consolidation period. Four healthy male mongrel dogs were used in thisExpand

Association of calcitonin receptor gene polymorphism with early marginal bone loss around endosseous implants.
PURPOSE This study investigated the relationship between calcitonin receptor (CTR) genotype and buccal marginal bone loss observed at stage II surgery for endosseous implants. MATERIALS AND METHODSExpand

Horizontal alveolar ridge distraction osteogenesis in dogs: radiographic and histologic studies.
PURPOSE This study was designed to evaluate the healing process in horizontal alveolar ridge distraction of the narrow alveolus in dogs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six beagle dogs weighing approximatelyExpand

A clinical, radiologic and pathologic study of desmoplastic ameloblastoma
Some ameloblastomas consist of sparse small nests and strands of odontogenic epithelium associated with desmoplastic stroma. This type of ameloblastoma was designated as desmoplastic ameloblastoma inExpand
