Clinical Cases

Share and discuss clinical photos from dental implants cases.

Implant failure possibility?

What do you think of the spacing between the implants? It seems like the new implants are very close to the voids. Does this increase the possibility of implant failure?

Secondary mental foramen: recommendations?

 I have identified the mental foramen but it also appears as though there may be a secondary foramen just mesial to it.  I am seeing the shadow just mesial to the mental foramen and am wondering what it could be.

Fractured implant: Remove or bury?

The implant in question is fractured, causing the abutment and crown to be dislodged. You can see the distal aspect of the occlusal platform bulges out and this implant will no longer support an abutment or screw.
