Abstract: Radiography plays an important role in clinical routine practice and in research projects evaluating dental implants, among them Brånemark® System. Presence of a peri-implant radiolucency has been used in studies as a criterion for implant failure without knowledge of its diagnostic accuracy. More precise determination, whether implants are osseointegrated or not, can be achieved if prosthetic constructions are detached to test implant stability. Such an approach is time-consuming and cumbersome... more
