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.
The abutment fractured at the platform level after 10 months of function.
I have a 25 year old patient complaining of a draining sinus which goes on and off for many years already following a root canal treatment.
Patient came into office with implant placed 6 months ago. Does not know what type of implant was placed.
Seven months after the implant operation I saw 2 areas with bone resorption and one suspicious area that looks to me like an abscess.
The radiograph showed radiolucency around coronal portion of the implant. I tried to unscrew the implant but the implant was stable.
Please see the radiograph of the Nobel Replace Conical Internal. Do the radiographs of the impression coping and screw-retained crown look okay?
I have a 72 year old white female dental implant patient with a long history of Lichen Planus.
The implant patient returned when he noticed that the crown (cemented Procera) was loose. There is mobility but the crown appears solid on the abutment.
This patient had the mesial implant removed. He wants me to place another and then restore this case.
I am concerned with what seems to be a radiolucency below the implant or is it just due to over drilling?
In my radiography class we took full mouth series on each other. That’s when I saw the bone loss around my all of my implants. I made an appointment to see the periodontist who installed my implants.
The patient now requires implants in left posterior maxilla, where the bone height is less than 5mm, bone classification is D3.
I had placed these 2 Bicon implants in the sites for #13 and 14. But despite my following all standard procedures, the 2 STEALTH shouldered abutments have come loose about 15 times by now.
As seen in the intra-oral photo, the implant features a threaded internal hex along all or most of it’s length. This is something I have never seen before.
The following clinical case will show the advantages that guided surgery offers in implant dentistry.
Patient returned to me after six and half months for second stage surgery and I observed significant vertical (angular) bone loss around the implant.
The patient wanted to have an implant supported crown. The Ct scan showed a large cyst under the teeth 21 and 22.
How can one salvage this bone loss in this dental implant case?
Is it possible to place a unibody mini implant into the site and restore with a crown or is a bridge the better option?
I’m just curious as to how the excess bone formed in the sinus.
Unfortunately in retrospect we see noted that both are placed too far to the buccal creating a very thin layer of covering buccal bone.
