Various maxillary sinus elevation techniques using bone grafts and bone substitutes are frequently used to enable the placement of dental implants in the posterior maxilla.
The width of keratinized mucosa (KM) around implant can have influence on the prognosis of osseonintegrated implants.
Surface treatment with pH buffering agent has been developed to achieve higher and faster osseointegration.
Completely edentulous patients, aged 18 years or older, presenting with severely atrophic mandibles (Class VI according to Cawood and Howell) were enrolled and treated using four implants, a CAD/CAM titanium bar and a low-profile attachment system to support an implant-supported overdenture.
Various techniques are available for elevating the sinus membrane. The aim of this study is to evaluate three methods of indirect sinus floor elevation regarding elevation heights of 7mm on the outcomes of membrane perforation, length of perforation, and time required to perform the procedure.
A radiographic stent was modified and used as a surgical stent instead of computer-guided implant surgery to reduce the treatment time. Compared to the stent made with computer -guided surgery, since it is not accurate enough to use until final drilling, it can be used as an marker for initial position.
The aim of this study was to evaluated the effect of healing period to the stability of hydrophilic tapered-type implant at maxillary posterior area : 6-weeks and 12-weeks loading.
This study aims to evaluate the aspects of healing around the implants placed with sinus floor elevation without bone grafts through crestal approach
This study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the intraoral use of subperiosteally placed self-inflating tissue expanders for subsequent bone augmentation and implant integrity.
Placement of implants immediately following extraction has now become an increasingly common strategy to preserve bone and reduce treatment time. This case reports demonstrates that it is possible to achieve greater efficiency in our efforts to give patient sound, timely and economical treatment.
