Histochemical examination on the peri-implant bone with early occlusal loading after the immediate placement into extraction sockets

Early and immediate loading of dental implants has become a routine procedure in dental practices throughout the world, but the histological feature of peri-implant bone has not been fully understood. Therefore, we aimed to elucidate the histological response of peri-implant bone bearing the early occlusal loading using rat models. Four-week-old male Wistar rats were subjected to extraction of their maxillary left first molars and had titanium implants inserted immediately into the post-extraction sockets. In experimental groups at 1 week after placement, implants were loaded for 1 or 2 weeks by adding adhesive resin on the top of the screws. In control groups, no adhesive resin was added to the implants. After 1 or 2 weeks with loading, rats were fixed with an aldehyde solution for histochemical assessment. Newly-formed bone adhered broadly to the implant surface in both the control and experimental groups. The experimental group loaded for 2 weeks showed thicker trabeculae between the implant threads compared to those in the control group. Osteopontin- and osteocalcin-positive cement lines, which are histological hallmarks of bone remodeling, were narrow and smooth in the experimental groups, while featuring a complex meshwork with thick scalloped lines in the control groups. The index of sclerostin-positive osteocytes located close to implants loaded for 2 weeks was significantly lower than in controls, suggesting that osteoblast activity was preserved. Summarizing, our experimental model suggested that early implant loading increases trabecular thickness in the peri-implant bone tissue in a process that involves the regulation of bone remodeling.
