Autologous soft tissue grafts are common but pose several disadvantages, including the need for multiple surgical sites, postsurgical discomfort, and limited tissue volumes, which has led to the development of alternatives. This retrospective study evaluated clinical performance of...

Patient cases

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.

Patient cases

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.

Patient cases

A 41-year-old female patient with a failing post crown in tooth #21 FDI (#9 US) with root fracture and infection, the treatment involved implant placement with GBR and soft tissue augmentation.

Patient cases

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.

Sinus grafting is recognized as an effective treatment modality with high implant survival rates having been reported. The lateral approach technique entails opening a lateral window in the bone and elevating the sinus membrane from the inferior aspect of the maxillary sinus so...

Sinus graft surgery can be performed as either a one-stage or a two-stage approach.

 

The decisive factor in choosing a simultaneous approach (one-stage surgery) over a delayed approach (two-stage surgery) typically is based on two factors: 1.) the amount of remaining alveola

Sinus graft surgery can be performed as either a one-stage or a two-stage approach.

 

With the single-stage surgery, the bone grafting and implant placement are performed in one surgery with the graft placed first, followed by implant placement. In the case of a two-stage surge

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.

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

Rehabilitation with implants in the posterior maxilla is challenging due to the rapid reduction of the available bone which is the result of physiological resorption of the alveolar process together with increased pneumatisation of the maxillary sinus. Augmentation of the sinus...
