The aim of our study is to investigate the bone ongrowth of two different alternative surfaces and the effect of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on osseointegration.
Bacitracin immobilized on the titanium (Ti) surface significantly improves anti-bacterial activity and biocompatibility in vitro. In the current study, we investigated the biologic performance (bactericidal effect and bone-implant integration) of bacitracin-modified Ti in vivo.
Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) exhibits appropriate biomechanical strength as well as good biocompatibility and stable chemical properties but lacks bioactivity and cannot achieve highly efficient osseointegration after implantation. Incorporating bioceramics into the PEEK matrix is a feasible approach for improving its bioactivity.
In this study, we experimentally evaluated whether complex, mature sutures can be separated using skeletal anchorage and light, continuous forces.
Aging population will lead to the increase of incidence of root caries globally. The clinical management of root caries is challenging due to the difficulty in moisture isolation. The root caries is caused by the release of organic acids from cariogenic bacteria which results in the dissolution of cementum and dentin of the root.
Dental implants protruding 2 mm were covered with dome-shaped stiff occlusive titanium barriers filled with demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA)+saline (7 rabbits), DFDBA + rifamycin (8 rabbits), or DFDB +PRF (8 rabbits). After 4 weeks, the animals were sacrificed, and undecalcified histomorphometric examination with toluidine blue staining was performed.
