The mesiodistal space between the second molar and second premolar is 11mm. I would like to place one wide platform implant in the space
Will I be able to accomplish implant placement by using an onlay bone graft alone?
But after drilling only 5mm the patient complained of pain so I stopped drilling and ordered a CBVT scan.
Do you agree with me that the graft encapsulated? If so, now what.
A periapical radiograph of the implant shows that I have breached the roof of the inferior alveolar canal.
My patient had an implant installed in her mandibular right first molar site 6 years ago in Brazil.
What do you think could be the reasons for this implant failure?
I know I should have angled the implant more, not to enter the sinus.
This space is about 11mm across the top. I can’t see how 2 implants will fit in this space.
During a new patient exam of a female patient with asthma and arthritis, I found peri-implantitis, and general periodontal problems .
This is a case of a female patient that has suffered a lot from problems associated with hypodontia.
I have a patient with 6 Zimmer implants in the maxilla and 6 in the mandible.
The lower left first molar was extracted 1-month prior due to bone loss. I would like to install an implant.
I installed 2-implants in the anterior mandible approximately in the position of the lateral incisors.
My recent dental visit showed significant bone loss (2mm-3mm) on bicuspid tooth, gum pocket depth of about 6mm.
This case presented presented a tricky grafting situation.
These are internal hex implants with microthread. There is no color coding.
The implant has increased mobility and is preventing her from chewing comfortably.
This is a case presentation from Dr. Simon for Extraction, Ridge Reduction and Immediate Full Lower Denture.
Immediate implants with provisionalizations are becoming the surgery of choice for patients when extractions are indicated in the esthetic zone. This is a case presentation for Central Incisor Immediate Implant.
If there is no infection, can I place another implant in the same site?
I would like to remove the damaged bar completely and convert this to free-standing Locator attachments.
What would be your Extraction Strategy for this case?
I am concerned that restoring this implant, with its mesial angulation and short length, may lead to difficulties. The crown to implant ratio is unfavorable.
CBCT does not show complete osseointegration. Do you recommend that I go forward and now load this implant?
