  2. 2. The peri-implant tissues from an esthetic perspective

    Author : Moontaek Chang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; clinical; dental implants; esthetics; single-tooth replacements; soft tissues; infra-occlusion; bone alterations;

    Abstract : The overall objective of the thesis was to evaluate the dimensions and position of peri-implant soft tissues in relation to the topography and alterations of the bone support, and the tissues’ significance for an esthetic appreciation of implant therapy. A comparative evaluation of crown and soft tissue dimensions between implant-supported single-tooth replacements and the contra-lateral natural tooth was made in Study I. READ MORE

  3. 3. On factors influencing the outcome of various methods using endosseous implants for reconstruction of the atrophic edentulous and partially dentate maxilla

    Author : Jonas Becktor; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : dental implants; grafted bone; maxilla; clinical follow-up; zygomatic implants;

    Abstract : Surgical reconstruction of the severely resorbed edentulous maxilla often requires a combination of bone grafts and dental implants. Different methods have been used during the years where donor site, type of bone graft, healing period, timing of implant placement and implant surface have varied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Carotid stenosis

    Author : Elias Johansson; Per Wester; Conny Arnerlöv; Arne Lindgren; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid stenosis; Risk; Recurrence; Stroke; TIA; Near-occlusion; Carotid Endarterectomy; Delay; Panoramic Radiographs; Cardiovascular medicine; Kardiovaskulär medicin; Neurology; Neurologi; Internal Medicine; invärtesmedicin; neurologi; Neurology; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Carotid stenosis is one of several causes of ischemic stroke and entails a high risk of ischemic stroke recurrence. Removal of a carotid stenosis by carotid endarterectomy results in a risk reduction for ischemic stroke, but the magnitude of risk reduction depends on several factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. On various protocols for direct loading of implant-supported fixed prostheses

    Author : Pär-Olov Östman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : dental implants; immediate loading; clinical studies; radiography; implant stability; resonance frequency analysis;

    Abstract : Backgrund: Prosthetic rehabilitation of the edentulous patient with implant-supported bridges is today a routine and predictable treatment modality. The original protocol prescribed a healing period of 3 to 6 months prior to loading which means that the total treatment time can be extensive and that the patients often need to wear removable provisional prostheses during healing and treatment.
