PURPOSE Several recent medical reports have focused attention on the possible application of skeletal scintigraphy imaging in odontostomatology. The aim of the present report was to assess the influence of immediate prosthetic loading on peri-implant osteoblastic activity through bone scintigraphy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Implants were placed in 2 healthy women. A nuclear medicine investigation with single-photon emission-computed tomography (SPECT) was performed for both patients at 30 and 90… CONTINUE READING
