15 Effect of Splinting Mini-Implants on Marginal Bone Loss: A Biomechanical Model and Clinical Randomized Study with Mandibular Overdentures

12 July, 2015 Jorge Jofre, DDS, PhD1/Patricio Cendoya, PE, PhD2/Paola Muñoz, DDS3
Purpose: This aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of splinting mini-implants on marginal bone
loss when used to retain mandibular overdentures. Materials and Methods: With mathematical models,
a finite element analysis was performed to compare the bone stress distribution around two miniimplants,
either splinted with a bar superstructure or not splinted. In the clinical portion of this study,
90 mini-implants were placed in the anterior mandibles of 45 completely edentulous patients

16 Survival of Splinted Mini-Implants After Contamination with Stainless Steel

12 July, 2015 Jorge Jofré, DDS, PhD1/Yuri Conrady, DDS2/Claudia Carrasco, PhD (Met)3
Purpose: Dental practitioners are instructed to avoid any type of contact with implant surfaces prior to
their insertion. However, the probability of contaminating the surface is high, especially when placement
of implants necessitates the use of precise surgical guides. The aim of this study was to evaluate
the 2-year survival rate of splinted mini-implants that came into contact with stainless steel prior to
their insertion. Materials and Methods: During the clinical portion of the study,

17 The effect of maximum bite force on marginal bone loss of mini-implants supporting a mandibular overdenture: a randomized controlled trial

12 July, 2015 J. Jofre´ T. Hamada M. Nishimura C. Klattenhoff
Objectives: To evaluate the effect of maximum bite force (mBF) on marginal bone loss
(MBL) around mini-implants in edentulous patients wearing mandibular overdentures with
two retention systems: ball and bar.
Material and methods: Forty-five totally edentulous patients were selected from a public
health center. All of them received two mini-implants (1.8  15mm; Sendaxs) in the
anterior mandible using a minimally invasive technique. A single randomization was
performed to allocate the pati

18 Effect of temperature on the dental implant osseointegration development in low-density bone: an in vivo histological evaluation

21 April, 2015 Trisi P1, Berardini M, Falco A, Vulpiani MP.
To make an in vivo evaluation of the effects of 2 different bone temperatures, on the development of implant osseointegration, in low-density bone.
Fifteen implant osteotomic sites were prepared in the iliac crests of sheep. Before the implant insertion, 5 sites were heated to 50°C for 1 minute, 5 sites to 60°C for 1 minute, and 5 sites were not overheated. Fifteen titanium dental implants (Cortex) were inserted. After a healing period of 2 months, t More

19 Influence of minimally invasive implant-retained overdenture on patients’ quality of life: a randomized clinical trial

20 April, 2015 Jorge Jofre, Ximena Castiglioni, Claudia Asenjo Lobos
Objectives: The aim of this prospective, randomized clinical trial was to evaluate the effect of a
minimally invasive implant procedure for denture stabilization on patients’ quality of life (QoL).
Materials and methods: Thirty totally edentulous patients were selected for this study. All
prostheses were adjusted and relined before randomization and allocation to treatment either
with two small diameter implants (SDI) – retained overdenture (study group) or non-intervention
group (control g More

23 "SATURN" The Ideal implant for D5 Bone Type

6 February, 2014 Dr. Zvi Laster D.M.D
Surface roughness is an important factor in early osseointegration (Alberktsson et al).
However, it is the macro-architectural design of the implant that establishes initial mechanical stability, which is crucial in minimizing implant mobility in the first 3-4 weeks of function.

24 Aesthetic rehabilitation using a special implant design

6 February, 2014 Dr. Franck Lasry, DDS
Immediate implant placement in fresh extraction sockets and immediate loading is now considered to have the same prognosis as the conventional two-step technique. Most issues encountered are due to recession of the alveolar ridge following bone resorption during the first postoperative months. With the exception of problems related to surgical error or infection, the incidence of problems can be reduced by providing good initial stability for the implant within the socket.

26 The SATURN immediate load post extraction dental implant: a one year pilot study of 140 consecutive implants

6 February, 2014 Dr. Zvi Laster D.M.D   |   Sharif Araide, DMD   |   Aaron Gonshor, DDS   |   Daniel Baruch, Eng
Dental implants have become a widely accepted treatment option for both partly and fully edentulous patients (1,2). The physiological basis for the success of dental implants lies in the unique bone reaction to titanium and Ti-6A1-4V alloy (3). The term "Osseointegration" relates to the fact that unlike other materials, titanium and titanium alloy allow a direct bone deposition upon the implant surface. This phenomenon allows dental implants to anchor firmly in the alveolar bone;

27 Biomechanics Analysis of a "Wing" Thread SATURN Dental Implant

1 June, 2011 Prof. Haim Abromovich   |   Ilan Weissberg Prof. Haim Abromovich, Weissberg Ilan
The purpose of this study is to examine the biomechanical advantages of a new implant line development by Cortex Dental called SATURN. The SATURN implant features a specially designed expanded diameter mid-crestal “ring” thread, which provides added bone contact for greater insertion torque achieving primary stability.
The examination was done by using a three-dimensional (3D) Finite Element Model (FEM) to evaluate the influence of the SATURN implant versus the classical cylindrical implant on More
