Effect of β-tricalcium phosphate coated with zoledronic acid on human osteoblasts and human osteoclasts in vitro

Alessandro Dentoni's insight:

The combination of a bone graft material with bisphosphonates (BPs) might be advantageous for an optimal balance of material resorption and stimulation of bone formation.

New dental implant concept from an italian spin off

New dental implant concept from an italian spin off | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it
Twocare S.r.l. is a University of Turin-CNR (National Research Council) spin-off that produces proprietary oxide-based dental implants and provides customized services to the clinicians.

The core expertise of Twocare S.r.l. in innovative implant bulk materials is due to the presence of academic and academic-trained researchers (PhD graduated) among its employees as well as to the strong relationships with prominent Research Centres of the field (ISTEC-CNR, the Molecular Biotechnology Center and the Dental School of the University of Turin).

Advanced CAD/CAM systems are used to design and produce the different dental implants and an independent quality control system ensures the highest reliability of the products.

Effect of whitening toothpaste on titanium and titanium alloy surfaces

Alessandro Dentoni's insight:

Whitening toothpastes with peroxides are available for patients with high aesthetic requirements, but the effect of whitening toothpastes on titanium surfaces is not yet known, although titanium is prone to fluoride ion attack.

The effect of load on heat production, thermal effects and expenditure of time during implant site preparation – an experimental ex vivo comparison between piezosurgery and conventional drilling

The effect of load on heat production, thermal effects and expenditure of time during implant site preparation – an experimental ex vivo comparison between piezosurgery and conventional drilling | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

PS yields significantly higher temperatures and thermal tissue alterations on load levels higher than 500 g and is significantly slower for ISP compared to SB and TB. For ISP with PS, a maximum load of 400 g should be maintained.

Impurities set back implant surgery

Impurities set back implant surgery | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

Lee Jae-hoon, a professor at the college of dentistry at Yonsei University, reported in Implant Dentistry, an international journal, that one can improve the integration between the two by preventing aging of the implant. As time passes the implant gets organic matters on its surface, which hinders the implant from being integrated with the protein that constitutes the cells in the alveolar bone. New implants that have just been manufactured thus have a 2.2 times higher integration rate than implants which are four weeks old.

Can wood replace damaged bones? | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

Researchers from the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) writing in a forthcoming issue of the International Journal of Healthcare Technology and Management suggest that it can. It turns out that the structure of some woods at the microscopic level is very close to that of natural bone; both have unique biomechanical properties such as high strength and lightness

By blocking a molecular receptor that bacteria normally target to cause the disease, scientists from the University of Pennsylvania have now demonstrated an ability in a mouse model to both prevent periodontitis from developing and halt the progression of the disease once it has already developed.

David's curator insight, January 9, 2013 11:09 AM

My thoughts:

I can relate to this because I know that my mom dislikes doing implants because of how difficult and time consuming they are. This would make dental implants for general dentists such as my mom much easier. It is amazing the new technology that people can come up with and this means that whenI become a dentist this technology will be available for me!
