OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the performance of zirconia implants under immediate loading compared with delayed loading in dogs over 30-90 days. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tooth extractions were made for the subsequent placement of dental implants at premolars P2, P3, P4 and molars M1 bilaterally in the dog mandible. Forty eight zirconia implants, 4 mm in diameter and 10 mm in length, were inserted, whose neck and body surfaces had been treated with femtosecond laser texturing; 24… CONTINUE READING
