Summary:

It has been shown that thin mucosal tissues may be an important factor in crestal bone loss etiology. Thus, it is possible that mucosal tissue thickening with allogenic membrane might reduce crestal bone loss. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how implants with traditional connection maintain crestal bone level after soft tissue thickening with allogenic membrane. After 1-year follow-up, implants in group A had 1.65 1 0.08-mm bone loss mesially and 1.81 1 0.06 mm distally. Group B had 0.31 1 0.05 mm mesially and 0.34 1 0.05 mm distally. C group implants experienced bone loss of 0.44 1 0.06 mm mesially and 0.47 1 0.07 mm distally. Differences between A and B, and A and C were significant both mesially and distally, whereas differences between B and C were not significant mesially and distally

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies
Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation Premium Member Content

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation
Let’s see what modern means from a biological and from a surgical standpoint. How can we achieve a full passive closure from the flaps without damaging the blood supply? Can we take care of the oxidative stress? Can PRF help us in these matters? Surgically, the management of anatomical elements such as the mylo-hyoid muscle and the mental foramen will be discussed and a simplification protocol will also be presented. No doubt, “modern” flap management raises a lot of questions!
