That evening following surgery, the patient mentioned that she was having nasal drip on her left side of the nose that was opposite from where I had installed the implants.
Discussions related to bone grafting during dental implant procedures.
I would like to open up the discussion and move the focus to what people have been using the obtained PRF clot and/or PRP for in practice?
That said, it seems that the angle of the centrifuge may matter in the final PRF clot made, or….it may not.
The bone in this case does not appear dense as compared to other cases that I eventually placed implants in.
I have read not to put pressure on a site that has been grafted. What about if you are doing a partial or full mouth extraction case for an immediate denture?
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.
My patient required bone augmentation for implant installation in his upper left.
I have seen cases with Bioss and similar xenografts where no membrane was placed.
I would like to know what would be the protocol for doing the multiple extractions and GBR procedure and how long do I need to wait to begin?
The periapical radiographs revealed significant bone loss on the mesial of #23.
Is it possible to do an open lateral sinus lift, without using graft or membrane?
There seems to be an exponential rise in periimplantitis over the past few years. Is there a meaningful correlation between grafting and periimplantitis?
When covering bone graft sites in fresh extraction sockets or ridge augmentation can the membranes be exposed?
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?
