Patient cases

A 53-year-old female patient with #22 FDI (#10 US), which was endodontically treated and discolored, was esthetically unpleasing. The tooth was hopeless due to root fracture. A treatment plan was formulated to replace the non-vital tooth with an implant.

The compromised jaw bone is mainly discussed in terms of expected problems and failures in relation to oral implant treatment. Rightly so, but it should be defined on various levels, implying:

-Interfering with the implant placement procedure, thus presenting with poor bone volume,...

The fourth dimension of surgical reconstruction with implants involves development of an adjusted surgical protocol, which is time dependent and accounts for normal physiological changes of the skull and face. Previous treatment in 3-D did not address the possibilities of these dyn...

Unstable soft tissue seal at implants favors an inflammatory reaction that can lead to facial recession, pocket formation and loss of bone support. The more stable and tight the soft tissue seal, the more predictable the outcome of implant rehabilitation. A major criterion influenc

Due to bone resorbtion in atrophic maxillary cases, low bone density and reduced bone height is commonly presented in the posterior region. Different techniques have been used to solve these cases, with or without bone augmentation. The pterygomaxillary region has been found to...

The success of immediate loading expanded the clinical basis for restorations in the early postoperative period. On the other hand, there is no doubt that in order to ensure the stability of the soft tissues and to reduce bone remodeling, it is necessary to minimize manipulations...

A key aspect of performance assessment is that a system is only as strong as its weakest link, and that the performance of any component depends not only on the component itself, but also on its interactions within the system. The interface between implant and abutment is critical...
