BACKGROUND The role played by the internal basal lamina (IBL) and hemidesmosomes between an implant and the peri-implant epithelium (PIE) in the adherence of the epithelium to the implant is controversial. This study used rat maxilla implantation models to clarify the ultrastructure of the PIE-implant interface. METHODS Ti-6Al-4V implants were inserted either immediately or 2 weeks after the extraction of the upper left first molar of 6- or 4-week-old rats, respectively. The junctional… CONTINUE READING
