I have a patient who presents with a complicated maxillary sinus anatomy in the area of where I need to place an implant. I would like to do a Summer’s Lift.
Share and discuss clinical photos from dental implants cases.
Neither of us have attempted this type of ridge development to correct both height and width before and are looking for advice and orthodontic protocol before moving ahead with this implant case.
I am looking for some practical advice on how to treatment plan this case. The patient is a 58 year old male with no medical complications.
Maxillary Rehab with Small Diameter Implants Case
Regarding this degree of vertical bone loss, how would you place the implants?
At 3-weeks post-operative, the membrane exfoliated by itself. The wound site is epithelialized and the implant platform is exposed.
I am looking for some practical advice on how to treatment plan this Maxillary Ridge Expansion dental implant case.
It has now been 8mths, no soft tissue exposures and just hoping for the bone loss to stop.
What is the possible prognosis of placing an implant in this region & giving her a fixed tooth?
I placed an implant and in reviewing the radiographs it appears that there may be a periapical radiolucent lesion around the implant.
I need to place an implant, but, there is very limited bone height.
Which is a better solution for the upper arch: A sinus lift or bilateral zygoma implants?
CT images show some lingual bone loss and what I’m thinking is a crack.
I extracted this #18 and placed Nu-oss bone graft with membrane one week ago.
I did a sinus lift two and half weeks ago. There was a rupture of the sinus membrane in the mesial part of the sinus not more than 4 mm.
Have other Drs seen acute/chronic post nasal drip or watery discharge occurring after sinus lift augmentation?
What brand of implant is this?
Implant patient now presents with a dehiscence in the crestal region where the cover screw can be seen.
I have a 45 year old female patient with no medical contraindications for implant therapy. Implants placed and patient reports after 24 hours with swelling on the right side of lower jaw.
At 12 days, two of the implants looked fine, however one of them has some initial tissue die back off the lingual exposing some bone.
Patient came in for an impression but there was small swelling on the mesio buccal of the #10 implant.
My question relates to implant depth placement. I placed a immediate lower central incisor implant where the bone/tissue was quite scalloped.
Is there any contraindication to performing a summer’s lift in this area?
I’ve just assessed a lady who had her uL2 extracted 2 years ago. There was a large periapical radiolucent lesion, and infections.
Two Straumann Bone Level implants are present at sites #5 and 6. How do we expose sufficient tooth structure without compromising implant esthetics, as well as the implant itself?
