Summary:

The purpose of this study was to compare the incidence of the complications and survival rate related to dental implants among smokers and non-smokers, and to evaluate the influence of smoking by analyzing data of 959 implants placed in 261 patients during the years 1995 to 1998.

Management of Retrograde Peri-Implantitis by Apical Resection and Guided Bone Regeneration in Adjacent Maxillary Implants

Management of Retrograde Peri-Implantitis by Apical Resection and Guided Bone Regeneration in Adjacent Maxillary Implants
Retrograde peri-implantitis (RPI) is defined as a clinically symptomatic periapical lesion that develops shortly after implant insertion while the coronal portion of the implant sustains a normal bone-to-implant interface. A 61-year-old male was screened and evaluated for three maxillary anterior implants placed 10 years previously. Evaluation included a thorough periodontal and dental exam, radiographs, and cone-beam computed tomography. Probing depths around all implants ranged from 2 to 4 mm with no bleeding on probing/mobility. The apices of implants #8 and #9 exhibited radiolucencies, and a draining fistula was associated with implant #8. Treatment consisted of sectioning and removal of the affected portion of the implants and collection of a specimen for histopathologic examination. Resection of the apical portion of implants is a viable treatment modality in the management of RPI.

Dental Implants: Mastering Esthetics in the Smile Zone

Dental Implants: Mastering Esthetics in the Smile Zone
The key to contemporary restorative dentistry is the fabrication of healthy, maintainable, esthetic, and functional prostheses. The true success of any restoration is reliant on the creation of an “illusion of reality,” regardless of the restorative modality used (eg, porcelain laminate veneers, crowns, and/or implant-supported prostheses). Developments and advances to the restorative armamentarium have significantly improved the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable and reliable treatments. Osseointegration…

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

Treatment of the Extremely Atrophied Edentulous Maxilla Using Bone Marrow Stem Cells Premium Member Content

Treatment of the Extremely Atrophied Edentulous Maxilla Using Bone Marrow Stem Cells
Treatment of the extremely atrophied edentulous maxilla is one of the most challenging problems in reconstructive surgery. Due to the size of the graft and inherent co-morbidities of these patients they some of the most difficult and challenging to treat requiring multiple surgeries with significant morbidity. The gold standard of care has long been the use of autologous block grafts from the iliac crest prior to implant placement however harvesting bone from the iliac crest comes with significant donor site morbidity. New treatment modalities using minimal invasive procedures and the use of Bone marrow stem cells and growth factors will be discussed.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.
