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.
Patient has returned to India where I am unable to obtain Straumann components or restorative kit.
These PITT-EASY implants were installed in 2008, the patient called to say the crown had unscrewed itself again.
The CBVT scan showed that the palatal cortical plate adjacent to #3 site was missing. What are the grafting options?
I have a 62 year old female patient with severe bone loss on the mesial aspect of #7 . What is the most predictable treatment?
I attempted to remove this failed implant using a removal tool which fractured. As you can see in the radiograph part of the tool is still in the implant.
Patient came into today for emergency about a fractured maxillary molar, but I couldn’t resist taking a radiograph of her 7 year old anterior implants to see what was underneath.
The grafted bone seems to have attained some mineralization and also is fusing with the native bone but perhaps, not with the implant.
I have treated several cases of bone defect, but have never grafted into a site this large.
Yet I have never extracted the tooth and done a sinus graft at that same time.
I have done a number of these cases, but I have yet to find a technique that would predictably allow good grafting of the site.
I saw patient recently and ordered a CBCT of #7 for implant planning. #7 site appeared normal on CBCT with some radiolucency apical to area #7.
But for last couple of months his maxillary CD fractures frequently in the midline and now patient desires a more durable and stable prosthesis supported or retained by implants.
You can see that the lingual bone was lost. I have not uncovered implant yet.
