Histologic evaluation of human bone integration on machined and sandblasted acid-etched titanium surfaces in type IV bone.

Abstract

The aim of this preliminary study was to evaluate the influence of a sandblasted acid-etched surface on bone-implant contact percentage (BIC%) as well as the bone density in the threads area (BD%) in type 4 bone after 2 months of unloaded healing. Five subjects (mean age = 42.6 years) received 2 microimplants each during conventional implant surgery in the… (More)
