This is a clinical presentation where we will explore the Hammerless intra-crestal approach.
This patient presented to my office with no knowledge of who placed this implant in area of #26 about 3 years ago.
My most important question is if I can avoid the open sinus lift approach & gain the sufficient length from the closed sinus lift only?
Upon closer examination the bicon implant and abutment (together) tooth #9 keeps popping out.
When the patient was recalled for crown insertion, I could not remove the healing abutment.
I installed 8 implants in the maxilla and tested them with the Osstell at 6 months pos-op. None gave me a number above 61.
I have a 45 year old female patient with a history of a draining sinus tract for the last year.
What has been your experience with the GMI Frontier implant system?
I recovered this stripped (head) screw from an unidentified external hex implant fixture and I need to replace it .
Lately I have had a lot of issues with my bone level implant that I use. I would appreciate any ideas as to what is going on with these cases.
I would like your opinion with regards the lower right 1st premolar (#44), would you extract or restore this tooth?
Examination revealed severe bone loss in all four quadrants including the lower molar implants.
The bone in this case does not appear dense as compared to other cases that I eventually placed implants in.
#29 implant also has a lingual inclination. Should I explant #29 implant at this time?
Note the massive bone loss around the implants. Patient is a heavy bruxer but is too lazy to wear the protective nightguard.
The pattern of bone loss is what is puzzling to me as is the island of bone that can be seen on the mesial aspect.
After implant placement, the white lesion appeared on the buccal mucosa.
If I am to restore this case, what type of abutments should I use?
I have a healthy patient without medical complications who needed implants in all 4 posterior quadrants.
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.
