My patient required bone augmentation for implant installation in his upper left.
The patient is asymptomatic and the implant is healing well. It is clear that I perforated the floor of the maxillary sinus.
Patient presented with history of trauma to the mandibular anterior teeth and had avulsed tooth #24 and a dental implant placed by a previous surgeon 3 years prior to being referred to the practice.
I have a patient complaining of a bad taste coming from her dental implants and she wants them removed!
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?
