In this work the effect of surface anodization on soft tissue integration was evaluated by comparing anodized (Xeal™) and machined surface titanium discs as culture substrates for human gingival epithelial cells (HGEPp) and primary human gingival fibroblasts (HFIB-G). HFIB-G cells...

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 45-year-old female patient who was referred re-failing post crown in tooth #21 FDI (#9 US), multiple failed veneers, generalized tooth wear and loss of OVD. The treatment involved the extraction of the root and immediate implant placement with a Connective Tissue Graft.

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 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.

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

In order for a patient to receive a properly placed implant with a functional and esthetically successful restoration, the clinician must be aware of the anatomical limitations of the maxillo-mandibular complex.  

The goal of this presentation is to provide the clinician with...

Is a failing implant a red flag scenario in the learning curve?

 

With the explosive penetration of implantology in the dental community, we are more often confronted with complications and failing implants. Corrections and re-treatment are difficult and time consuming. Inadequate...
