OBJECTIVE to evaluate early osseointegration of dental implants installed with two different drilling protocols. MATERIAL AND METHODS thirty-six cylindrical shape Mozo Grau implants, with a diameter of 3.75 and 11 mm long, were placed into the distal condyle (submerged) of each femur of 18 New Zealand rabbits. In the control group, a 3.3 mm diameter drill was used as the last one prior implant installation (standard protocol). In the test group, the same procedure was carried out but an… CONTINUE READING
