Horizontal bone augmentation by means of guided bone regeneration
Abstract The development of bone augmentation procedures has allowed placement of dental implants into jaw bone areas lacking an amount of bone sufficient for standard implant placement. Thus, the indications for implants have broadened to include jaw regions with bone defects and those with a bone anatomy that is unfavorable for implant anchorage. Of the different techniques, the best documented and the most widely used method to augment bone in localized alveolar defects is guided bone regeneration. A large body of evidence has demonstrated the successful use of guided bone regeneration to regenerate missing bone at impl...

Zygomatic implants: indications, techniques and outcomes, and the Zygomatic Success Code
Abstract The zygoma implant has been an effective option in the management of the atrophic edentulous maxilla as well as for maxillectomy defects. Brånemark introduced the zygoma implant not only as a solution to obtain posterior maxillary anchorage but also to expedite the rehabilitation process. The zygoma implant is a therapeutic option that deserves consideration in the treatment‐planting process. This paper reviews the indications for zygoma implants and the surgical and prosthetic techniques (including new developments) and also reports on the clinical outcome of the zygomatic anatomy‐guided approach. An overvie...

Sinus floor elevation utilizing the transalveolar approach
Abstract A transalveolar approach for sinus floor elevation with subsequent placement of dental implants was first suggested by Tatum in 1986. In 1994, Summers described a different transalveolar approach using a set of tapered osteotomes with increasing diameters. The transalveolar approach of sinus floor elevation, also referred to as ‘osteotome sinus floor elevation’, the ‘Summers technique’ or the ‘Crestal approach’, may be considered as being more conservative and less invasive than the conventional lateral window approach. This is reflected by the fact that more than nine out of 10 patients who experience...

Critical buccal bone dimensions along implants
Abstract The buccal bone plate is a component of the alveolar process tightly related to the tooth it supports. A plethora of physiological and pathological events can induce its remodeling. Understanding this remodeling process and its extent is of major importance for the practitioner as it can affect the functional and esthetic outcome of implant surgery at the involved sites. Bone remodeling and resorption of the buccal bone plate are inevitable after tooth loss or extraction. To limit resorption, several ridge‐preservation techniques of varying efficacy have been described. Bone resorption is equally found to occur ...

Critical soft‐tissue dimensions with dental implants and treatment concepts
Abstract Dental implants have proven to be a successful treatment option in fully and partially edentulous patients, rendering long‐term functional and esthetic outcomes. Various factors are crucial for predictable long‐term peri‐implant tissue stability, including the biologic width; the papilla height and the mucosal soft‐tissue level; the amounts of soft‐tissue volume and keratinized tissue; and the biotype of the mucosa. The biotype of the mucosa is congenitally set, whereas many other parameters can, to some extent, be influenced by the treatment itself. Clinically, the choice of the dental implant and the p...

Immediate implants at fresh extraction sockets: from myth to reality
In conclusion, despite the obvious advantages of this surgical protocol, it also has limitations and is more technically demanding than placing an implant into a healed crest. When selecting this protocol, clinicians should always consider: (a) the gingival biotype of the patient; (b) the thickness and integrity of the socket bony walls; (c) the implant selection as well as the adequate vertical and horizontal position of the implant; and (d) the ideal patient (a nonsmoker with good plaque control).

Immediate loading in partially and completely edentulous jaws: a review of the literature with clinical guidelines
Abstract The introduction of immediate loading was a paradigm shift in implant dentistry as it was previously believed that an unloaded period was essential for bone healing in order to promote osseointegration. However, this belief could not be confirmed by clinical studies or by human histology. Hitherto, numerous reports have been published on immediate loading in various indications. An important factor for success is primary implant stability. The latter can be improved by adapting drilling protocols to enhance lateral compression of the bone and by using tapered implant designs with apical thread fixation. To some ex...

Neurovascular disturbances after implant surgery
Abstract With a steadily increasing impact of oral implant placement in daily practice, the number of reported surgical complications has also been growing. Recent studies reveal significant variation in the occurrence and morphology of neurovascular canal structures in the jaw bone. All those structures contain a neurovascular bundle, the diameter of which may be large enough to cause clinically significant damage. Therefore, it has become obvious that presurgical radiographic planning of jaw‐bone surgery should pay attention to the neurovascular structures and their likely variations, in addition to examining many othe...

Different techniques of static/dynamic guided implant surgery: modalities and indications
Abstract For computer‐guided surgery a static surgical guide is used that transfers the virtual implant position from computerized tomographic data to the surgical site. These guides are produced by computer‐aided design/computer‐assisted manufacture technology, such as stereolithography, or manually in a dental laboratory (using mechanical positioning devices or drilling machines). With computer‐navigated surgery the position of the instruments in the surgical area is constantly displayed on a screen with a three‐dimensional image of the patient. In this way, the system allows real‐time transfer of the preoper...

Guided surgery: accuracy and efficacy
Abstract Different computer‐assisted implant‐placement procedures are currently available. These differ in software, template manufacture, guiding device, stabilization and fixation. The literature seems to indicate that one has to accept a certain inaccuracy of ±2.0 mm, which seems large initially but is clearly smaller than for nonguided surgery. A reduction of accuracy to below 0.5 mm seems extremely difficult. A common shortcoming identified in the studies included in this review is inconsistency in how clinical data and outcome variables are reported. Another limitation is the small number of comparative clinic...

Etiology and treatment of periapical lesions around dental implants
Abstract The widespread use of oral implants in recent years has resulted in various types of complications. One of those complications is the periapical implant lesion. Different factors have been proposed to play a role in the development and emergence of a periapical implant lesion. To date, there is no consensus on the etiology and therefore periapical lesions around dental implants are considered to have a multifactorial etiology. The diagnosis of an implant periapical lesion should be based on both clinical and radiological findings. Additionally, in order to apply the best treatment strategy the evolution of the les...

Management of peri‐implant mucositis and peri‐implantitis
Abstract Peri‐implant diseases are defined as inflammatory lesions of the surrounding peri‐implant tissues and include peri‐implant mucositis (an inflammatory lesion limited to the surrounding mucosa of an implant) and peri‐implantitis (an inflammatory lesion of the mucosa that affects the supporting bone with resulting loss of osseointegration). This review aims to describe the different approaches to manage both entities and to provide a critical evaluation of the evidence available on their efficacy. Therapy of peri‐implant mucositis and nonsurgical therapy of peri‐implantitis usually involve mechanical debr...

A Novel Treatment for Propagated Crown Fractures
A major complication after endodontic treatment is persistent pain on biting or chewing. Although unsuccessful endodontic treatment can account for such pain, pain to chewing and biting can also be a result of an unsupported or propagated crown fracture. Crown fractures that extend apically result in deterioration of the localized periodontium and ultimate loss of the tooth. To date, no predictable treatment for apically extending crown fractures exists. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)
