The ITI congratulates its former President Prof. Dr. Daniel Buser, whose groundbreaking paper "Influence of surface characteristics on bone integration of titanium implants. A histomorphometric study in miniature pigs" recently reached 1,000 citations, making it one of the ten most frequently cited studies in implant dentistry.
This study on implant surfaces, which he co-authored with Robert Schenk, Samuel Steinemann, Joesph Fiorellini, Christopher Fox and Hermann Stich, was published in 1991 in the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research and resulted in a paradigm shift towards micro-rough surfaces for dental implants.
