Syn.: Turned surface An implant surface that results from the milling process of a cylindrical titanium rod. The scratches of the tooling on the implant form a machined implant surface.
Magnesium can be used as implant material. It has metallic strength and can be bioabsorbed (converted in magnesium oxide and hydrogen, degradation, corrosion). It can be used to stabilize bone fractures. Mechanical properties are similar those of natural bone. more details: 1. Bioresorbable Magnesium Implants for Bone Applications by Olga Wetterlöv Charyeva
Use of radiography (X-rays) of the breast to detect breast cancer. Recommended as a screening technique for early detection of breast cancer.
Syn.: Transmandibular implant. An dental transosseous implant in which a plate is fixed at the inferior border of the mandible. Retentive screws are placed partially into the inferior border with two continuous screws going transcortically and penetrating into the mouth in the canine areas and used as abutments for a removable denture.

relating to the maxilla (upper jawbone) and the face. Maxillofacial surgery is a specialization of medicine and/or dentistry that focuses on problems around the mouth, jaw, midface and neck. Anatomical limits and skills differ country-to-country. In some countries doctors attend medical school, dental school and than an additional residency. In other countries they attend either …

Molecular layer deposition
Ratio of stress over strain., when the deformation is elastic. It is a measure of stiffness or flexibility of a material. A stiff material has a high modulus of elasticity and a flexible material ha s a low modulus of elasticity. Syn.: Young´s modulus
Syn.: Button implant, epithelial implant, intramucosal insert, mucosal implant. Mushroom-shaped device fastened to the tissue surface of a removable denture that fits within a prepared gingival receptor site. The use of multiple mucosal inserts enhances a denture´s retention and stability. As it does not perforate dermal/mucosal integrity, it is no real implant.
