Clinical Cases

Share and discuss clinical photos from dental implants cases.

Did fibro-encapsulation occur? Next Steps?

I tested with Implantest and get variable readings, some of which say osseointegration has occurred. My thoughts are that heavy occlusion on the temps caused micromovement and some fibro-encapsulation to occur.

Bone graft quality?

I would like input on the bone graft quality. I see a kind of a void above the new bone below the sinus.

Wide Diameter 5.5 or 5.0 for Molar?

Usually, I try to give a 2.5 mm clearance from the adjacent tooth when placing molars, but I am considering using a wide diameter implants in this case even though it will be slightly closer.

PRF for socket preservation?

I have been considering placing just PRF  [Platelet Rich Fibrin] as the sole filling material into extraction for socket preservation and regeneration of bone.
