In his latest research article, Dr. Wadhwani and colleagues investigated the influence of implant abutment and screw access channel modification on the retention of copings. Titanium abutment access openings were either left open or modified by placing two vent holes 3 mm from the occlusal edge and 180 degrees apart. Access openings sealed with a resin material were used as controls. Metal copings were cemented and subjected to tensile testing until failure. Access openings w
Dr. Chandur Wadhwani and colleagues investigated different techniques used by dentists when luting an implant-supported crown and to evaluate the application of cement quantitatively and qualitatively.

Dr. Chandur Wadhwani and Dr. Alfonso Pinyero conducted a study to compare the effect of implant abutment modification on the amount of cement extruded at the crown-abutment margin and evaluate the vertical discrepancy after cementation. Their findings were published in the International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants. Access openings of titanium abutments were modified with an opening and placement of two vent holes 3 mm from the occlusal edge and 180 degrees apart.
