Osseointegration of a 3D Printed Stemmed Titanium Dental Implant: A Pilot Study

Figure 5

Micro-CT analysis following 3-week implantation of CTRL (left column) and SIT (right column) implants. (a, e) Radiographs of each implant type. (b, f) 3D visualization of the implant and bone (purple) with orthogonal planes labelled, (c, d, g, h) corresponding orthoslices from (b, f) where new bone formation (appears lighter in contrast) is noted. Both implants showed bone conduction down the implants from the cortical bone crest, while the SIT implant also showed new bone formation between the implant stems.
