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?
I have a patient coming in this Friday for a full mouth extraction of the mandible with 2 implant placement for a future overdenture.
I am looking at removing UR12 debriding the sockets and placing osteogen plugs and provide an Essix.
I need to rehabilitate this case, where the root still remains on the missing tooth. Should I do a Bridge or Implant?
Patient is missing his maxillary right central incisor. The problem is that the alveolar ridge is very much resorped in that site.
On examination the implant appeared slightly mobile and copious pus was draining through a fistula above the crown.
In this case, the maxillary lateral incisor was extracted by another dentist 4-months prior, with no grafting.
The implant is still stable. However, there is bone loss on the lingual.
I have treatment planned a patient for a mandibular implant retained overdenture using 2 implants and we received the CBCT scan for this patient.
I installed four 12 mm Straumann implants in the maxilla which are not parallel and are very angulated because I was trying to avoid the sinuses.
The apex of the implant is very close to the root of #11. Will problems develop?
Patient came in for follow up and the second PA was obtained. 2 mm of crestal bone loss has occurred.
The membrane became exposed on the third day post-operatively.
Will a highly inflamed sinus lead to graft failure?
I reviewed the implant patient after a week and noticed that the suture on top of the cover screw was gone and the flap was open.
At 6-weeks post-operative recall the patient presented with a pustule on the alveolar ridge adjacent to the implant.
I have had a couple of post-op complications with extraction of posterior lower molar followed by immediate implant placement.
Considering laceration at the root tip, does this canine have a good prognosis to be put back into occlusion?
I have a new patient who presents with an implant installed 20-years ago in Wales in the United Kingdom.
Tooth #21 broke off at the gum line and patient wants to place an implant.
In these case photos, you see the septum showing DASK [Dentium Sinus Kit] access and careful lifting of the sinus membrane without tearing it .
There is limited restorative space for this implant case, and I need to assess all the options.
