I attempted to remove this failed implant using a removal tool which fractured. As you can see in the radiograph part of the tool is still in the implant.
Patient came into today for emergency about a fractured maxillary molar, but I couldn’t resist taking a radiograph of her 7 year old anterior implants to see what was underneath.
The grafted bone seems to have attained some mineralization and also is fusing with the native bone but perhaps, not with the implant.
I have treated several cases of bone defect, but have never grafted into a site this large.
Yet I have never extracted the tooth and done a sinus graft at that same time.
I have done a number of these cases, but I have yet to find a technique that would predictably allow good grafting of the site.
I saw patient recently and ordered a CBCT of #7 for implant planning. #7 site appeared normal on CBCT with some radiolucency apical to area #7.
But for last couple of months his maxillary CD fractures frequently in the midline and now patient desires a more durable and stable prosthesis supported or retained by implants.
You can see that the lingual bone was lost. I have not uncovered implant yet.
Placed this implant in position 30 using CBCT and surgical guide for pilot drills, but still found end result to be angulated.
This is a radiograph of a middle-aged male patient asking to replace his lower partial denture with implants.
In this case, we show another Maxillary Sinus Lifts technique, the Hydraulic Intracrestal Approach.
Please could you help me identify these implants placed in Pakistan.
I have a 40 year old patient in excellent health who presents with chronic severe periodontal disease.
My question involves immediate implant placement. Would you do it 1 or 2 stage and how?
The soft tissue appears quite inflamed around implants. I’m thinking replacing the crowns would be the way to go.
This is a clinical presentation where we will explore the Hammerless intra-crestal approach.
This patient presented to my office with no knowledge of who placed this implant in area of #26 about 3 years ago.
My most important question is if I can avoid the open sinus lift approach & gain the sufficient length from the closed sinus lift only?
Upon closer examination the bicon implant and abutment (together) tooth #9 keeps popping out.
When the patient was recalled for crown insertion, I could not remove the healing abutment.
I installed 8 implants in the maxilla and tested them with the Osstell at 6 months pos-op. None gave me a number above 61.
I have a 45 year old female patient with a history of a draining sinus tract for the last year.
What has been your experience with the GMI Frontier implant system?
I recovered this stripped (head) screw from an unidentified external hex implant fixture and I need to replace it .
