To compare the implant survival rate between short dental implants and standard length implants placed in combination with bone grafting at 5 years of loading.
This multicentre study enrolled 101 patients (137 implants) with a posterior maxillary bone height of 5–7 mm. Patients randomly received either short implants (6 mm; GS) or long implants (11–15 mm) with sinus grafting (GG). Six...
Due to chronic inflammation or trauma facial bone is frequently missing after tooth loss in the esthetic zone. As a consequence, procedures to augment or at least to preserve bone are frequently necessary prior to implant placement.
The aim of this retrospective case series is to demonstrate the applicability of a staged all‐flapless concept to establish satisfactory implant...
To document the behavior of autogenous bone block in sinus lift and surgical consequences.Twelve sinus lifts with autogenous hip bone blocks and simultaneous insertion of two implants in 6 adult female sheep. Polychrome sequential labelling and histologic and histomorphometric evaluation after 6, 16, and 26 weeks.Augmentation material in the apical third was almost fully resorbed after 26 weeks (P...
Migration of activated regulatory T (Treg) cells to inflamed tissue is crucial for their immune-modulatory function. While metabolic reprogramming during Treg cell differentiation has been extensively studied, the bioenergetics of Treg cell trafficking remains undefined. We have investigated the metabolic demands of migrating Treg cells in vitro and in vivo. We show that glycolysis was instrumental...
To test whether the use of short dental implants (6 mm) results in an implant survival rate similar to that with longer implants (11–15 mm) in combination with sinus grafting.
This multicentre study enrolled 101 patients with partial edentulism in the posterior maxilla and a remaining bone height of 5–7 mm. Included patients were randomly assigned to receive short implants (6 mm; GS/group...
Implant esthetics may benefit from individualized zirconia abutments copying the emergence profile of the natural tooth and delivered within days after immediate implant insertion.
To investigate the esthetic outcome of the Copy‐Abutment technique using the Pink Esthetic Score (PES).
Materials and Methods
A total of 77 patients with single‐tooth implants in the anterior maxilla...
This issue marks the first anniversary issue since I was honored to serve as the Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems (TNNLS). I am happy to report that we had a very successful year and here are a few highlights that I would like to share with the community. <list-item><label>•</label>The latest impact factor of TNNLS is 4.854 according...
