The aim of this study was to evaluate the stability of implant/interconnected porous calcium hydroxyapatite complex (implant/IPCHA-complex) under functional loading. Implant/IP-CHA-complexes were placed into the mandibles of four Beagle-Labrador hybrid dogs (complex-group). On the other side, an implant was placed directly (control-group). To subject the loading, the animals were fed a hard diet throughout the loading phase of 5 months. The implant stability quotients (ISQs) and bone implant contact (BIC), and histological evaluations were performed. The ISQs of implant/IP-CHA-complex was significantly lower at placement than that of the control-implant. On the other hand, there was no significant difference between in the groups during loading. The BIC measurements, there was no significantly difference between in both groups. Histologically, newly formed bone was observed in contact with most of the implant surface in the complex-group. An IP-CHA/implant-complex would be able to achieve both bone reconstruction and implant stability under functional loading conditions.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the stability of implant/interconnected porous calcium hydroxyapatite complex (implant/IPCHA-complex) under functional loading. Implant/IP-CHA-complexes were placed into the mandibles of four Beagle-Labrador hybrid dogs (complex-group). On the other side, an implant was placed directly (control-group). To subject the loading, the animals were fed a hard diet throughout the loading phase of 5 months. The implant stability quotients (ISQs) and bone implant contact (BIC), and histological evaluations were performed. The ISQs of implant/IP-CHA-complex was significantly lower at placement than that of the control-implant. On the other hand, there was no significant difference between in the groups during loading. The BIC measurements, there was no significantly difference between in both groups. Histologically, newly formed bone was observed in contact with most of the implant surface in the complex-group. An IP-CHA/implant-complex would be able to achieve both bone reconstruction and implant stability under functional loading conditions.
