Mohammed Alrabiah
The aim of the present study was to establish survival rates, as well as crestal bone loss (CBL) of narrow diameter implants (NDI), compared to regular diameter implants (RDI). The current review followed the Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research guidelines and Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses statement. We searched main databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and Cochrane Oral Health Group Trials Register) for articles addressing the focused question up to and including May 2018...

The aim of the present study was to assess the efficacy of low-intensity laser therapy (LILT) for harvesting palatal connective tissue graft (PCTG) in the treatment of gingival recession. Databases were searched up to May 2018. The addressed focused question was: Is adjunctive LILT effective in the healing of donor palatine area after harvesting PCTG? Screening of the initially identified studies resulted in four clinical studies. All studies showed that LILT was effective in improving clinical outcomes, such as tissue thickness, postoperative discomfort, remaining wound area, and visual analog score at follow up...

REVIEW
Gaia Pellegrini, Luca Francetti, Bruno Barbaro, Massimo Del Fabbro
Survival, differentiation capability, and activity of cells are strictly related to structural features and the composition of the extracellular matrix, and its variation affects tissue homeostasis. Placement of a dental implant in bone tissue activates a sequence of molecular and cellular events that lead to the apposition of newly-formed bone directly onto the titanium surface. Due to implant's interaction with the mineralized tissue, osseointegration is affected by the surface structure of the implanted material...
