Tissue response to implanted dental material in rabbits


Aim of the study: is to assess the tissue compatibility of implanted dental material.Material and methods: fourteen albino rabbits were used for subcutaneous implantfor 14 days of different dental metallic material includes titanium, cobalt chromeand nickel chrome.Result: titanium and cobalt chrome show fibrous capsule formation while nickelchrome shows necrotic tissue filled the area of the implant.Conclusion: to minimize biologic risk, dentists should select dental materials thathave the low tissue toxicity, allergy and sensitivity, with proper manufacturing andquality control of metals.
