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?
Share and discuss clinical photos from dental implants cases.
Which would be more accurate, an implant level or abutment level impression?
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.
I can see radio-opaque areas. Are these the outline of remnants of the graft?
I treatment planned a patient for an implant supported fixed detachable prosthesis in the maxilla.
I have a patient where there was considerable gingival recession in the maxillary anterior aesthetic zone.
This simple case, presented by Dr. Peter Fairbairn shows the benefits of CaP synthetic materials.
As you can see from the case photos below for this implant case, the nasopalatine canal is an issue.
I placed 4 regular implants (3.6mm X 10mm) on the atrophic mandible and realized the implants looked rather deep and I have read that mandibular fractures are a potential complication.
Patient returned for suture removal 10 days post-op and I saw that several implant threads on the palatal side were exposed.
I installed the 10mm implant and achieved bicortical support and good primary stability, but with a minimal sinus penetration.
I would like input on the bone graft quality. I see a kind of a void above the new bone below the sinus.
In this implant case, unfortunately due to poor planning I placed it very close to the canine.
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.
The patient is a 55-year old female with many missing posterior teeth. I decided to do an indirect sinus lift (with graft) on the right side with simultaneous implant placement.
This patient had an implant placed on the upper left side about a year ago which penetrates into the sinus.
I am planning a fixed implant supported prosthesis in the lower arch in this patient. The amount of bone available on left posterior region is limited.
I have a patient with considerable bone loss on the right mandible, especially in the anterior region.
Usually after extraction, the sinus undergoes pneumatization, but that is not evident there.
After placement, the implant appeared to be too close to the distal root of 1st molar.
I have been considering placing just PRF [Platelet Rich Fibrin] as the sole filling material into extraction for socket preservation and regeneration of bone.
This patient requires extraction of all teeth in the lower jaw, immediate implant placement, and immediate loading with a CAD/CAM bridge prepared in advance on a digitally manufactured analog model.
My patient has a periapical lesion on tooth 14. He does not want root canal treatment and prefers an implant.
The panoramic radiograph shows that the 10.5mm length implant in #3 site has perforated the maxillary sinus.
I have a patient missing 2 adjacent maxillary premolars. There is 12mm mesiodistal space.
