The effects of osteoporosis on osseointegration in the rat maxilla

Du, Zhibin (2015) The effects of osteoporosis on osseointegration in the rat maxilla. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


The study investigated the effects of oestrogen deficiency on dental implant in a rat model. An osteoporosis rat model was successfully established for dental implant research and it was noted that bone cells functioned differently in osteoporotic condition during the healing of dental implant. The study further demonstrated that implant surface roughness could stimulate bone formation, therefore, improve the bone healing in osteoporotic condition.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
