I now have looseness/movement of the crown/abutment on the NobelActive even though I have the screw tight to 35Ncm.
The periapical radiographs revealed significant bone loss on the mesial of #23.
One of the anterior implants appear to be in or bordering the inferior turbinate.
She is complaining of a dull ache in the area of 21 implant buccal gingivae base of sulcus, which is relieved when pressing on the gum where the implant apex would be.
I have a patient who has a broken healing abutment on a Straumann implant. Any ideas for this case?
I informed the patient that several of her implants were not doing well and would likely need to be removed.
If it is Branemark, can I use their Unigrip driver to remove the abutment screw?
Almost all implants are supracrestal, the patient is not wearing any prosthesis and appears to have a loss of vertical dimension of occlusion with moderate attrition in the anterior region.
I plan to perform crestal approach lift, and lift approximately 3-4mm. My comfort zone would be to place a longer implant in 14 area but concerned about possible tear trying to lift too much, therefore planning to make diameter wider.
The postoperative X-ray showed that the implant & the adjacent root of 1st premolar are in contact.
Should I extract 34 and 45 and wait 3 months for healing before implanting on both sides, or should I place implants immediately?
After preparing osteotomy site I was unable achieve primary stability so I went to a 4.7mm Zimmer implant.
This is a patient from overseas who has had a Xive implant in #14 site.
I installed a 4.7mm diameter Zimmer implant in the posterior mandible. There appears to be a horizontal radiolucent area between the platform of the implant and the impression coping.
Should I install implants perpendicular to the occlusal plane and risk perforating the labial cortical plate?
I have a new patient who presented with this implant. I would like to use it to hold a ball attachment for an overdenture.
The implants were installed in Florida perhaps 20 years ago.
I placed Hiossen ETIII’s implants on a elderly gentlemen with no significant health history. I plan on restoring the maxilla with a screw-retained one-piece-Zirconia-bridge.
The implants did not integrate and failed within a few months. The area was than regrafted using titanium mesh and overlying membrane, which became exposed and led to failure of the graft.
What are my restorative options for this case? Should I incorporate the maxillary canine in a long span fixed partial dentures with implants?
Do you think this implant will have to be removed and redone or does anyone have any other suggestions?
The panoramic radiograph shows a gap between implants and bone all around the implants.
I would like implant/restorative solution with no removable phase.
The patient has bilateral congenitally missing upper laterals which have been restored with repeatedly failing Maryland bridges.
Is there is an increased risk of membrane tear while performing crestal lift on such a pneumatized sinus?
