Landmark study on implant surfaces by former ITI President Daniel Buser et al. reaches 1,000 citations

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.
