Patients who need more than 2 dental implants will be treated by the same implant type (conical 4mm diameter IBT Southern implants) but with different thread pitch design (0,6mm en 1,0mm type). In a 3 year clinical follow up period, the bone remodelling on X-rays is registered around these implants. The role of the thread pitch design will be investigated.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

A multicenter prospective observational study in which aim is to illustrate the clinical outcome of dental implants "Kontact N"; and the effects of its nanostructured surface on the osseoi...
The high predictability of immediate dental implants has led to routine use with a great expectation for success. Immediate implant placement in fresh extraction sockets was reported to r...
Cochlear implant users generally display poor pitch perception. Flat-panel computed tomography (FPCT) has recently emerged as a modality capable of localizing individual electrode contacts within the ...
Many individuals with bilateral cochlear implants hear different pitches when listening with their left versus their right cochlear implant. This conflicting information could potentially increase the...
The rate of dental implant failures ranges from 3% to 8%, with that number increasing as the number of implants placed increases. When an implant fails, the survival rate drops significantly when a se...
The mechanisms of early failures in dental implant osseointegration are unclear. A possible cause of low levels of bone formation is implant contamination with lubricants during insertion. To explore ...
The Optimized Pitch and Language (OPAL) strategy enhances pitch perception through coding of fundamental frequency (F0) amplitude modulation information in the stimulus envelope delivered to a cochlea...
Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.
The plan and delineation of DENTAL IMPLANT fitting with DENTAL ABUTMENT.
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
Biocompatible materials usually used in dental and bone implants that enhance biologic fixation, thereby increasing the bond strength between the coated material and bone, and minimize possible biological effects that may result from the implant itself.
The shrinkage of the foreign body encapsulation scar tissue that forms around artificial implants imbedded in body tissues.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
