PURPOSE The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the histologic and mechanical healing process in dental implants under the action of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight commercially pure implant fixtures were implanted in tibiae metaphysis of 12 New Zealand white rabbits divided into experimental (PEMF) and control groups. A PEMF with pulse width of 85 microseconds and a pulse frequency of 20 Mc was applied for 30 minutes per day. The animals were… CONTINUE READING
