This article presents two novel options for lithium-disilicate restorations supported by single-tooth implants. By using a Ti-Base connector, hybrid abutments and hybrid abutment crowns can be fabricated for different implant systems. The latter option in particular is an interesting new...

In this study, hydroxyapatite (HA) was coated on anodized titanium (Ti) surfaces through radio frequency magnetron sputtering in order to improve biological response of the titanium surface. All the samples were blasted with resorbable blasting media (RBM). RBM-blasted Ti surface...

Improvements in osteoconduction of implant biomaterials require focusing on the bone-implant interface, which is a complex multifactorial system. Surface topography of implants plays a crucial role at this interface. Nanostructured surfaces have been shown to promote serum protein adsorption and...

To investigate the microstructural effects of the synthesized TiO2 nanopowders such as particle size, specific surface area, pore size and pore distributions for the application of an anode material of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC), size-controlled and well-dispersed TiO2 nanopowders were...
