Two groups of titanium dental implants, identical in geometry but different in the treatment of their surfaces, were tested in an in vivo minipig model of the mandible. The surfaces that were tested were, first, sandblasted and acid-etched; and secondly, sandblasted, acid-etched, and conditioned. The removal torque was assessed at 2, 4, and 8 weeks after implantation (n=6 animals in each healing period). The interfacial stiffness was also evaluated. All dental implants were well-integrated at… CONTINUE READING
