The rabbit as experimental model for research in implant dentistry and related tissue regeneration


Stübinger, Stefan; Dard, Michel (2013). The rabbit as experimental model for research in implant dentistry and related tissue regeneration. Journal of Investigative Surgery, 26(5):266-282.

Abstract

The use of rabbits for experimental research has a long historical tradition. The aim of this review consists in outlining the use of the rabbit for research in implant dentistry and related tissue regeneration. Rabbits appear as a first-hand choice for fundamental implant design studies because of their size, easy handling, short life span, and economical aspects in purchasing and sustaining. In the following, the various anatomical sites in the rabbit will be summarized to provide an overview of current possibilities and limitations of this model for bone research in oral implantology.
