The surface structure, in particular the surface roughness, and the surface chemistry of titanium implants influence their anchoring in bone. The aim of this study was to analyse metal–bone contact (MBC) after modification of the implant surface, using different materials for blasting.
Purpose: This study sought to evaluate treatment outcomes of implant-prosthetic rehabilitation with implants in the edentulous maxilla or mandible that were immediately loaded by fixed prostheses. Special consideration was given to the time of implantation (immediate, delayed, or late implant placement). Materials and Methods: Twenty-five patients who received 283 immediately loaded screw-type implants were included in this retrospective study. Data captured included patient file information, panoramic and periapical radiographs obtained during treatment, and clinical parameters examined during the recall period.
The specific objective of the present study is to assess the interactions between cells from a human gingival epithelial cell line and various aesthetic materials used in modern prosthetic dentistry. For this study six types of dental materials were selected: Cr-Co non-precious metal alloy, ceramics applied on Cr-Co nonprecious metal alloy, zirconia, ceramics applied on zirconia, polymethyl methacrylate and pressed ceramics/ lithium disilicate.
