Nothing like RSS feeds coming to your iPHONE, iPAD regardless of where you find yourself…..the pan seared rainbow trout with salsa verde at Ruby Watchco is exceptional

Bone-to-implant contact (BIC) % and primary stability of oral implants is an important criterion of a successful osseointegration. Objectives: The aim of this study was to find out the BIC and bone volume (in %) at the coronal (BVc) and apical (BVa) level of surrounding trabecular and cortical bone in different implant systems with various thread designs immediately after their insertion. Methods: 5 implants of each one of the following implant systems with comparable sizes (11.00/3.5mm, progressive threads-Ankylos(A), thread cylinder-Frialit-2(F) and condensation threads-XiVE(X); 13.00/4.3 mm diameter for Replace (R) Select tapered, 12.00/3.5mm diameter for ITI-Straumann(I),11.00/3.5mm diameter for Astra-Tech(As)) were inserted in rip bone of freshly slaughtered cows. The implants were placed using the exact surgical protocol suggested by the manufacturers. Immediately after surgery, the implants with the surrounded bone tissues were examined histologically and histomorphometrically using a grinding technique (Donath and Breuner, 1982). Results:The histomorphometrical evaluation (Mann-Whitney test) presented significantly better results in the BIC% (A/X, A/F, A/As, A/I, A/R), as follows.
Implant BIC% BVc BVa
Ankylos 65.13 ± 15.96 22.00 ± 5.45 17.00 ± 4.84 (n=11)
Frialit-2 55.86 ± 10.22 26.00 ± 3.75 23.00 ± 5.42 (n=11)
XiVE 58.25 ± 5.25 28.55 ± 1.06 24.15 ± 2.6 (n=10)
Replace Select Tapered 49.15 ± 15.99 22.88 ± 6.86 28.50 ± 11.67 (n=10)
ITI-Straumann 51.15 ± 17.85 24.00 ± 7.46
; 18.95 ± 2.80 (n=10)
Astra-Tech 52.10 ± 11.99 15.75 ± 6.00 13.45 ± 13.5 (n=10)
Based on these data only the primary BIC% of the tested implant systems seems to be dependent on the thread design. Conclusions: We concluded that the special progressive and condensation macrodesigns present significantly higher primary stability than other implant thread geometries.
