On examination I found that the abutment had fractured just coronal to the Morse taper connection. I cannot remove the rest of the abutment.
For the next step there are two alternatives: either have 2 implants installed or just 1 cantilevering lateral incisor.
A dentist asked for my opinion in regards to a surgical exposure of a lower premolar.
In all instances, the implant and the surrounding tissues appeared fine and asymptomatic. However, the patient returned complaining of exudate.
This is the first time that I used a surgical guide stent to install the implants. I think they look too close together.
I had placed this Straumann bone level implant and on day of placement there was 1 mm exposure of the implant on the distofacial line angle.
One of the ways to achieve predictable primary stability, besides implant site preparation and implant insertion, is intraoral welding.
I recently saw a patient last week for extraction #10 (left lateral incisor), with immediate placement of an implant. The extraction was atraumatic, five walls were visualized and accounted for.
I am planning to do full mouth extractions followed by placement of implants to support a fixed detachable prosthesis for a young patient suffering from generalized aggressive periodontitis.
Currently, the goal is to find a solution for the MD spacing prior to placing one implant.
I laid a full thickness flap and determined that there had been significant bone loss.
Patient had implants placed 7 years ago, but never went back to previous dentist to have them restored.
Unfortunately at today’s exposure appointment, the implant had a small spontaneously exposure palataly and bone deficiency.
At 3 months post-op, the dental implant at the #4 site was mobile.
4 months post treatment with an implant, an x-ray was taken and I noticed some defects where Bio-oss was placed.
Teeth are asymptomatic, no soft tissue pathoses and no purulent discharge. Is this the ideal case for extraction and immediate installation of implants?
The implant didn’t go in tight and resulted in a spinner when trying to place cover screw over and inability to completely cover implant platform.
The implants are very close together, but are well integrated without complications. Will the close proximity cause future complications from this point?
Patient asked if he could have a bridge from the implant to his adjacent natural teeth.
The surgeon reconstructed the mandible with a rib graft 6 months after the initial surgery. Patient is asking for implants at the reconstructed area.
I extracted #13 due to extreme mobility, and now patient wants implant there.
A patient presented with the Chief Complaint of a loose dental implant which had been installed 2-years prior by a different dentist.
Treatment plan recommended to the patient included full mouth rehabilitation with dental implants.
The platform of the implant appears to be about 1mm from #13.
I obtained a cbct image which shows the most distal surface of the implant in close proximity but not infringing the mental nerve. I am at a loss to understand how patient gradually developed paresthesia.
