Titanium implants: a removal torque study in osteopenic rabbits.


CONTEXT Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue. It may affect the craniomaxillofacial complex and result in less bone-implant contact. AIMS The objective of this study was to measure the endosseous integration of titanium implants using the removal torque test in low-mineral… (More)
