Initially I used the drills to prepare the osteotomy to the depth of 5mm followed by osteotomes to perform a crestal sinus lift without using any bone graft.
Share and discuss clinical photos from dental implants cases.
Tooth #46 tooth was extracted 1 year before and is missing the buccal plate. At the time of extraction, no bone augmentation was done.
I would like to learn more about bicortical, immediate-loading implants. These implants have a smooth surface and depend on osseofixation to the cortical bone for primary stability.
The tooth had a large abscess and large periapical radiolucent lesion. I tried to curette as much as possible, but did not graft the socket.
This dental implant patient presented yesterday at the wax try in for the denture set up and informed me he was recently diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver.
A 33-year old man, non-smoker, healthy is interested in 2 or 3 implants.
I have a 40 year old female patient interested in implants to restore her edentulous areas.
This patient had implant placed in France and needs to have it restored can someone please help me identify what type of implant this is?
The tooth was extracted about a year ago. On examination, I can see what seems to be a piece of gutta-percha.
A patient came with 3 implants in the maxilla. They are tilted buccally and not distributed properly.
I placed a provisional crown in the lower 2nd molar position 4 days ago to develop the emergence profile for an implant placed 6 months ago.
This patient had a Straumann bone level implant placed in the maxillary left canine site
I am planning the treatment for vertical bone augmentation in the esthetic zone.
I have a 43 year old female patient missing her upper right central incisor who have indicated for an implant.
I have treatment planned a fully edentulous patient for 4 implants and a fixed hybrid prosthesis in the maxilla and 4 implants and a fixed hybrid prosthesis in the mandible.
I have treatment planned this for a new 4-unit bridge from the second molar to an implant in the first premolar site.
Please view this radiograph which shows an Ankylos Regular/C abutment fractured at the level of the implant platform.
After an intralift sinus lift, the patient returned at one month and the radiograph showed significant bone resorption around the implant in #14 site.
I had two weird cases of paresthesias this month, one involving a bone graft, and I am hoping that the group could offer insight.
Now there is a horizontal movement in the splinted crown on the ITI Implants, and a vertical movement from the right crown
However, the bone width does not seems to be sufficient to allow three implants to be placed in a straight position with proper spacing.
I have a patient who presented with missing maxillary anterior teeth #7,8,9 and 10. She currently wears a removable partial.
The implant has considerable circumferential bone loss and is slightly mobile. Is there any way to regain the lost bone?
Some studies show that the membrane will form over the implant apex projecting into the sinus. Patient is returning for 2-week post-op. Should I reverse torque out the implant?
Which would be more accurate, an implant level or abutment level impression?
