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

Figure 6

Micro-CT analysis following 12-week implantation of CTRL (left column) and SIT (right column) implants. (a, e) Radiographs of each implant. (b, f) 3D visualization of the implant and bone (purple) with orthogonal planes labelled, (c, d, g, h) corresponding orthoslices from (b, f) where the new bone has matured and is of equal intensity to the preexisting bone. Both implants showed bone conduction down the implants from the cortical bone crest; however, bone growth between the stems was not noted in this particular specimen.
