Two-stage crestal sinus elevation by sequential drills in less than 4mm of residual ridge height: a clinical and histologic case report

Resorption and pneumatization of alveolar ridges are common oc- currences in the posterior max- illa after tooth extraction. These may cause not only a quantitative reduction but also a qualitative deterioration of bone leading to a skeletal segment inadequate for implant placement. In these situations, the residual vertical bone height…

Permanent wettability of a novel nanoengineered, clinically available, hyaluronan-coated dental implant

The objectives of this study are to evaluate long‐term wettability of novel surface‐ engineered, clinically available dental implants, featuring a surface nanolayer of cova- lently linked hyaluronan, and to confirm the relationships between wetting properties and surface nanostructure and microstructure. Wettability measurements were per- formed on…
