Torus of the maxilla or mandible, maxillary tuberosity, sinus wall, zygomatic bone, symphysis or ramus. instruments such as trephine drill, mallet & chisel, bone scarper, or saw have been used for bone grafting.
Horizontal or vertical alveolar bone augmentation procedures usually cannot be avoided in edentulous regions. Many studies have shown that GBR is predictable treatment at infrabony defects. However, GBR on extrabony defects still shows a lack of predictability.
With numerous implants on the market today, determining which one to select can be a difficult choice. Research and development are reaching new heights, osseointegration between fixture and bone has now become a major property of dental implant surfaces. Download our FREE eBook and read how implant surfaces has helped dentists to achieve superior osseointegration for their cases.
Surface treatment with pH buffering agent has been developed to achieve higher and faster osseointegration.
Completely edentulous patients, aged 18 years or older, presenting with severely atrophic mandibles (Class VI according to Cawood and Howell) were enrolled and treated using four implants, a CAD/CAM titanium bar and a low-profile attachment system to support an implant-supported overdenture.
Various techniques are available for elevating the sinus membrane. The aim of this study is to evaluate three methods of indirect sinus floor elevation regarding elevation heights of 7mm on the outcomes of membrane perforation, length of perforation, and time required to perform the procedure.
A radiographic stent was modified and used as a surgical stent instead of computer-guided implant surgery to reduce the treatment time. Compared to the stent made with computer -guided surgery, since it is not accurate enough to use until final drilling, it can be used as an marker for initial position.
The developments of CT technology and implant planning software has improved guided surgery and gained the interest of dentists from across the world. Guided surgery has helped thousands of patients and dentists achieve positive results with precise and stress-free implant placement.
The aim of this study was to evaluated the effect of healing period to the stability of hydrophilic tapered-type implant at maxillary posterior area : 6-weeks and 12-weeks loading.
This study aims to evaluate the aspects of healing around the implants placed with sinus floor elevation without bone grafts through crestal approach
