Abstract

The morphologic features of the bone-dental implant interface were investigated using an in vivo dog model. The undecalcified bone and associated support tissues were serially sectioned and examined with both conventional and high voltage transmission electron microscopy. A varied morphologic appearance of the tissues supporting clinically and radiographically appearing integrated implants was observed. Osteoblasts were observed at the implant interface, and osteocytes were routinely seen encased within lacunae extremely close to the implant surface. Often these osteocytes extended cellular projections to the implant surface. The variable tissue types observed were suggestive of healthy lamellar and appositional type mineralization patterns adjacent to the implants.
