Reproducible success rates approaching 100% further emphasize the importance and value of this treatment modality. Still, a significant waiting period is required between implant placement and prosthesis delivery, which necessitates a two-surgery approach for implant protection during healing. This article discusses the development of an animal model that is being used to… CONTINUE READING
