When covering bone graft sites in fresh extraction sockets or ridge augmentation can the membranes be exposed?
Discussions related to bone grafting during dental implant procedures.
I did an extraction and had to do a bone graft with a titanium membrane. Patient returned with persistent soreness and bad taste.
The panoramic radiograph shows a gap between implants and bone all around the implants.
Is there is an increased risk of membrane tear while performing crestal lift on such a pneumatized sinus?
Due to the bone loss as a result of perio disease in the past, I am slightly concerned about the final appearance of the restoration and the emergence profile especially as she has a high lip line.
I am planning on placing an implant in 22 site. There is a large periapical area/cyst associated with with the root of the tooth.
The implant and area around it are asymptomatic and stable. Any solution to the exposed threads?
I’m planning a 2 implant overdenture for this patient and this is the ICAT scan.
Assuming the implants are integrated and the soft tissue is intact over the implants, can I bone graft over the facials of these implants after all this time?
Is it mandatory to graft the site after removal of a failed implant?
I am working in a practice where one of the dentists a resorbable collagen wound dressing as a substitute in guided bone regeneration for a true resorbable collagen membrane.
The posterior alveolar ridges are thin and lacking in bone volume. What are your recommendations?
I would like to open a discussion about the grafting of a 1 or 2 ( or 3, for that matter) walled defect/sockets.
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.
Seven months after the implant operation I saw 2 areas with bone resorption and one suspicious area that looks to me like an abscess.
My question is on a subsequent visit, I would like to bone graft this site in preparation for a dental implant, but I am not sure exactly how to go about it.
Unfortunately during the surgical exposure, the sinus membrane suffered multiple tears which I thought were non repairable.
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 have a case with early crestal bone loss. Can I use PRF?
Patient returned to me after six and half months for second stage surgery and I observed significant vertical (angular) bone loss around the implant.
How can one salvage this bone loss in this dental implant case?
I would be interested in readers views on the use of irradiated human bone from a bone bank as an onlay block graft to augment a narrow ridge in the upper incisor region prior to implant installation.
Seems as if “hardened” bone had not formed. Any ideas as to what went wrong in my technique?
