Dr Ana Ferro, Dr Edith Groenendijk and Dr Tara Aghaloo discuss the question "To graft or not to graft". Which situations can benefit from a grafting procedure? The experts discuss indications in depth, review clinical cases and the clinical evidence to answer this key question.
GBR is preferred in the treatment of alveolar ridge defects to provide sufficient bone for implant placement. Dr Zoran Aleksic, Dr Marko Magic (FOR Emerging Leader), and colleagues present this clinical study evaluating bone volume after GBR and survival and success of implants...
This publication contains the proceedings of the Oral Rehabilitation Symposium held at the University of Sydney in June 2018. 21 chapters cover findings on implant osseointegration, occlusion, orofacial pain, TMD and jaw function.
A 30-year-old female patient who lost tooth #13 FDI (#6 US). She reported the traumatic extraction of the canine, which resulted in a significant vertical bone loss of 3 mm and an advanced horizontal lingual defect.
Dr. Krivitsky discusses the importance of site development for implant placement. She reviews the pattern of resorption following extraction and the important role bone graft plays in preserving the bone architecture. Her focus is on two specific challenges...
A valuable reference for everyone involved in implant placement or implant restoration. 18 chapters from diagnosis to oral hygiene maintenance, 950+ photographs, over 40 videos, end of chapter self-assessment quizzes and 1,000+ scientific and literature references.
A 55-year-old female patient with missing maxillary premolars, class IV recession on the adjacent tooth, pneumatized sinus. She was treated with simultaneous sinus elevation, implant placement, guided bone regeneration, and soft tissue grafting.
A 26-year-old female patient is treated following the "MeteenDoor"- protocol. This Dutch protocol includes the placement of a bone substitute simultaneously with Immediate Implant Placement and Provisionalization (IIPP) reducing the horizontal buccal bone changes.
A 26-year-old female patient wanted to have her teeth straightened. This clinical case describes the extractions of the lower deciduous second molars, followed by immediate implant placement. After the completion of the orthodontic treatment the final restorations were placed.
A 54-year-old man presented with missing right lower teeth and ridge deficiency. Horizontal and vertical augmentation by GBR (Guided Bone Regeneration) was carried out using the “Tenting Screw Technique”. Two implants and a free gingival graft were placed.
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.
Today, the time factor plays an increasingly important role in a patient’s treatment decisions and effective solutions are expected from the dentist. This raises issues when deciding on immediate or delayed implant placement even in the posterior zone. Several factors need to be...
