Does the failure rate increase as the implant diameter decreases?
Due to rapid advances in computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing technology, custom dental implants, or patient-specific implant dentistry, is continuing to gain traction with researchers.
A recent study followed up on thirty-four partially edentulous patients who were found to have jawbone cavitation during dental implant surgeries.
Is there a connection between age and the success rate of dental implants?
Can microthreads in the crestal portion of an implant reduce the amount of marginal bone loss around implants?
A recent study compared the efficacy of preemptive ibuprofen and dexamethasone protocols for pain prevention or control after surgical implant placement.
A recent study aimed to evaluate the clinical performance of zirconia abutments in anterior and posterior regions, focusing on implant-abutment connections and restoration vertical height (RVH)
To what extent can a residual alveolar ridge can be preserved by an implant?
A recent study evaluated bone regeneration around delayed implants positioned in large bone defects, that were filled with reactive soft tissue.
A study compared different types of hydroxyapatite (HA), for sinus floor elevation and augmentation.
Radiotherapy has been considered a contraindication for dental implants.
BCPC can therefore be considered as a promising candidate for carrying rhBMP-2 for bone grafting procedures.
What is the effect of bone density and drilling protocol on heat generation during implant bed preparation?
What has been your experience placing implants in the posterior mandibular region?

The use of a hydrogel PEG membrane to protect BCP proved to be a valuable grafting procedure to enhance the vital bone formation in the maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedure.
What would you think of placing three implants in the edentulous maxilla to retain a removable prosthesis, without palatal coverage, using Locator abutments?
Several studies seem to support the notion that the junction between the abutment and implant fixture could harbor bacteria, and thereby become a potential source of infection and inflammation.
What are the long-term outcomes of immediate loading of dental implants immediately placed into infected sites?
The custom titanium ridge augmentation matrix (CTRAM) is a novel bone augmentation technique utilizing information digitally obtained from CBCT scans to produce virtual augmentations and custom designs for guided bone regeneration.
This work confirmed and extended observations of prior studies that RFGDT materials have mitogenic effects that might be captured for stimulating desired tissue growth around implanted biomaterial appliances.
Zeramex implants offers the strength,highly biocompatibility and aesthetic benefits of Zirconia implants with the clinical ease of use and prosthetic benefits of traditional titanium dental implants.
