The radiograph revealed a periapical radiolucent lesion on the apical portion of implant #9. The implant was not mobile and had stable peri-implant tissue.
I am planning on placing an implant in 22 site. There is a large periapical area/cyst associated with with the root of the tooth.
The implant and area around it are asymptomatic and stable. Any solution to the exposed threads?
I was inserting a 6mm diammeter implant in #19 and upon torquing down the implant, the ratchet driver fractured inside the internal hex connector.
I plan on performing a ridge split in the area of #12.
I need to separate an implant from a tooth on 20+ yr old tooth-to-implant splinted crowns but implant is NON-HEXED.
The porcelain has fractured off the bridge and I need to remove and replace the bridge.
I was wondering what the consensus opinion is here about placing an implant into an extraction socket that is 6 weeks old.
I’m planning a 2 implant overdenture for this patient and this is the ICAT scan.
The implant in #12 site had failed and had a communication through the gingival tissue and it had become infected.
I plan on removing her maxillary bridges and determining what is salvageable, l then plan to construct a provisional implant based overdenture and a mandibular acrylic removable partial denture to give maxillary balance.
Assuming the implants are integrated and the soft tissue is intact over the implants, can I bone graft over the facials of these implants after all this time?
For a patient with five implants, my plan is to insert 5 multi-base abutments and then fabricate the bar over the multi-base.
I have a new patient who presented with a dislodged abutment and crown from an implant in #30 site. I cannot identify the implant.
During implant placement surgery today in the maxillary right 1st molar area, I perforated the sinus floor and membrane.
I have an implant patient with a low smile line and low aesthetic expectation of the treatment. The problem is that the mesiodistal space is quite narrow.
I have an implant patient that has been taking Actonel for 3 months.
The posterior alveolar ridges are thin and lacking in bone volume. What are your recommendations?
During my drilling of the osteotomy I felt a sudden drop in resistance, I did the valsalva manuver to check for any perforation and there was no perforation.
3 weeks later as I attempted to torque custom abutment to 30nCM the whole implant started to spin at about 15nCM. Clearly the implant is not osseointegrated.
7mm of the implant is in my sinus, confirmed by internal ENT radiography.
Patient suffered suffered massive trauma to her mandible about a year ago. She had a fibula graft to reconstruct her mandible.
After I installed implants in my patient, she now has severe pain in the area between #12 and 11 [maxillary left canine; 23].
On the 1 month recall the healing abutments were exposed. I changed the healing abutments. The radiograph showed rapid bone loss around #18.
Since the extraction was done more than a year prior to the visit, more than 50% of the bone volume was lost buccolingually.
