Dr Souheil Hussaini, Dr Elham Yagoobi, Dr Maryam Khalili & Prof. Dr Saul Weiner, USA/UAE

There is an increasing awareness of the importance of oral and dental health.

Quality assessment of dental implants by SEM and EDX analysis—A comparison of five one-piece implants

Dr Dirk U. Duddeck & Dr Franz-Joseph Faber, Berlin & Cologne

Dental implants are supposed to be clean when delivered in a sterile packaging.

Unintended micrometerscale particles may induce a foreign-body reaction with a loss of bone in the early stages of osseointegration. In cooperation with the University of Cologne and the Charité-University Medicine Berlin, the Medical Materials Research Institute Berlin analysed the quality of dental implants in three con - secutive studies since 2008...
