Abstract: SummaryTitanium implants have been designed which utilize a solid core and porous exterior. The technique for implants containing posts utilizes a cast chromium-cobalt splint for fixation and the buried implants are held in place by the overlying gingiva until tissue growth into the porosity results in stabilization.Clinically successful post implants with apparent bone ingrowth and healthy gingiva surrounding the posts have been achieved for periods up to three months.
