The histologic examination of dental implants retrieved from humans is important to establish the causal determinants of implant failure, and to compare and validate the results obtained from animal studies. This study presents a retrospective review of the histologic features of 230 implants retrieved in an 8-year period (1989-1996). All the implants were treated to obtain thin (20 to 30 microm) ground sections. The majority of implants were retrieved because of mobility (n=56), peri… CONTINUE READING
