The non cemented, friction fit retention of this implant and abutment design is bothersome for the patient. Does anyone know of a solution to upgrade this implant?
Share and discuss clinical photos from dental implants cases.
She has a generalized, aggressive form of periodontitis and many of her teeth are mobile and with a poor long term prognosis.
I am wondering how we can restore this implant in the #12 site. There was an error and case ended up with an implant that is angulated towards #13.
This patient presented with a missing maxillary second premolar with a root tip at its apex. If this were smaller, I would probably just plan on drilling through it.
I have been seeing many cases like this where there is adequate alveolar ridge height but deficient buccolingual alveolar bone width.
I extracted the tooth in September 2016 and placed an implant that day. I started to restore the implant yesterday and I discovered a fistula.
The tooth has had conventional endodontic therapy and then an apicoectomy. What is the best implant treatment plan here?
There is reduced bone height beneath maxillary sinus and the lateral sinus wall is rather thick. I wonder if I should perform lateral sinus lift or internal sinus lift and simultaneous implant placement.
I have a patient who presents with a hemangioma of the facial region, and I’m wondering about implant treatment.
We did an internal sinus lift and placed an Osstem implant 4×8.5mm in site 25.
Both implants had been torqued to 40Ncm. My question is after removing this implant, how would you treat this case?
Four months later when the patient returned, I took a CBCT and noted fragments of gutta percha remaining in the cancellous bone from a prior gutta percha overfill.
This case is presented by Dr. Kevin Frawley, DDS. Pre-op (see case photos below) This asymptomatic patient presented with an existing 3-unit hybrid Maryland bridge […]
I have a 39 year old male patient for dental implants who presents with cervical spondylosis and gets an infusion of infliximab (Remicaide) every 6 weeks.
I have had two dental implants (Nobel Replace tapered) done. Unfortunately, they were installed too close and almost touching.
When I extracted tooth 12 and inserted the implant I placed it too close to 13.
How do I manage the knife edge ridge so I can place an implant and maintain the existing normal gingival architecture?
I had placed an Osstem 4x11mm implant in 36 region 3 years ago. Eventually the screw broke. I retrieved it. The implant also shows a crack line on the labial surface
This is an implant I did last September. Does this look like a fistula?
The bone defect in the #8 site is very large and connected to the incisive canal. The periodontal health of the surrounding teeth is stable.
After a week, the implant patient presented with flap dehiscence. I re-sutured and again the same picture.
I have done 30 immediate and conventional implant loading cases. But never early loading.
After implant placement, you can see the large soft tissue swelling over the labial. It is painless.
At the follow up, the x-ray shows nice bone loss at the screwed in prosthesis.
One week following re-cementation of the FPD, the patient came back and complained of tenderness on the buccal aspect of implant #24.
