The Effects of Different Variables on Marginal Bone Loss around Dental Implants

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.068
Synopsis: 
We found that the increase in marginal bone loss over time was found to be correlated with width on both sides, however; no correlation was found for height variable. Marginal bone loss increased with an increase in bone width.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To assess the effects of different variables including implant type and thread design, bone width and height measured on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images, along with systemic and patient related factors on marginal bone loss around dental implants which were measured on postoperative panoramic radiographs.

Role of Reactive Oxygen Species and Advanced Glycation End Products in the Malfunctioning of Dental Implants

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.105
Pages: 
419–23
Synopsis: 
Pathogenesis of peri-implantitis remains largely unknown. In this study, we have used salivary and tissue samples of patients with peri-implantitis and have highlighted a significant role for oxidative stress and advanced glycation end products in the pathogenesis.

Measurement of the Interantral Bone in Implant Dentistry Using Panoramic Radiography and Cone Beam Computed Tomography: A Human Radiographic Study

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.059
Pages: 
503–9
Synopsis: 
Panoramic radiography is a sufficiently accurate method for interantral bone height imaging at the incisor but not in the canine area.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To analyse the dimensions of interantral bone available for dental implant placement in the fully edentulous maxilla.

Methods: Interantral bone height (IBH) was measured using panoramic radiography and computed tomography (CT). Interantral bone width (IBW) was measured by means of CT.

Comparative Study of the Osteoblastic Activity of Two Implant Systems (Endopore versus Entergra) Utilizing Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT): Experimental Study in Pigs Model

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.058
Pages: 
145–8
Synopsis: 
In this report, we describe the use of quantitative single photon emission computed tomography as a tool for comparing the osseointegrating capabilities of two types of implants. Results suggest that there is little difference in bone regeneration between the porous surface and screw type implants.
