Various scenarios for dental implants in the esthetic zone, along with the responsibilities of the restorative dentist, are discussed.
While a standard of care for implant maintenance is lacking, there are effective means and strategies for patients to clean the areas under and around implants and various prosthetic replacements.
This prospective study evaluated implant survival, esthetics, and bone maintenance in immediately placed and immediately provisionalized implants in the esthetic zone.
A novel technique is presented that enhances implant placement by establishing proper subgingival contours in the abutment phase, allowing the proper emergence profile to be developed.
Surgical therapy in this case that describes a combined regenerative/resective procedure used in the treatment of peri-implantitis consisted of minimal resection of interproximal peaks of bone and gui...
The screw-access marking technique presented allows for any clinician to simply and predictably retrieve a cemented implant prosthesis if and when needed.
This article discusses the use of and clinical applications for intraoral scanning technology as it applies to custom-fabricated implant abutments.
The demonstrated technique combines a resorbable mesh (PLGA) with rhBMP-2 and FDBA to reconstruct severely resorbed alveolar ridges to facilitate prosthetically guided implant placement.
This report describes “rules” for effectively placing a single-tooth dental implant. They represent diagnostic targets and a single therapeutic guideline for directing clinical success and prevent...
This case study describes a new proposed method to treat edentulous areas of the mouth using dental implants and fixed prosthodontic concepts to register secure and accurate bites.
This retrospective case series reports on the use of a polylactic acid barrier that was left exposed in the process of socket preparation for the placement of dental implants.
This case report shows an alternative approach for treating peri-implantitis, presenting clinical results after application of bioresorbable polymeric doxycycline 10% loading nanospheres as an adjunct...
This article presents an overview of the guidelines and indications for use of computer-guided technologies in dental implant treatment.
The described protocol provides a way to facilitate the placement of zygoma implants into the best position surgically and prosthetically using partially computer-guided surgery.
Research results suggest CPS putty is a reliable choice for osseous regeneration in cases of socket grafting and implant-related surgeries.
