CE 1: Osseodensification: An Overview of Scientific Rationale and Biological Background Michael A. Pikos, DDS; and Richard J. Miron, DDS, PhD
This first CE article provides an overview of basic biological remodeling events that take place after implant placement and discusses surgical methods to increase primary implant stability. The authors describe the biological rationale supporting osseodensification of osteotomy sites utilizing bur technology based on a novel biomechanical bone preparation technique.
