    ABSTRACT: As placement of implants into immediate sites involves management of the remaining root structure, these residual roots may be used as a guide for the osteotomy development. This aids in implant positioning and prevents drill slippage into the residual root spaces during osteotomy drilling. Following completion of the osteotomy, the remaining root structure is extracted prior to implant placement into the site.

    ABSTRACT: Clinical success of implant therapy is directly related to titanium (Ti) surface properties and the quality of bone tissue. The treatment of Ti implants with H2SO4/H2O2 is a feasible, reproducible and low-cost technique to create surface nanotopography (Ti-Nano). As this nanotopography induces osteoblast differentiation, we hypothesized that it may impact bone response to Ti. Thus, this study was designed to evaluate the bone response to a machined Ti implant treated with H2SO4/H2O2 to generate nanotopography (Ti-Nano) and to compare it with a commercially available microtopographic Ti implant (Ti-Porous). Implants were placed in rabbit tibias and after 2 and 6 weeks bone tissue formed around them was assessed by microtomography to evaluate bone volume, bone surface, specific bone surface, trabecular number, trabecular thickness and trabecular separation. Undecalcified histological sections were used to determine the percentages of bone-to-implant contact, bone area formed between threads and bone area formed in the mirror area. At the end of 6 weeks the removal torque was evaluated using a digital torque gauge. The results showed bone formation in close contact with both Ti-Nano and Ti-Porous implants without relevant morphological and morphometric differences, in addition to a similar removal torque irrespective of surface topography. In conclusion, our results have shown that a simple and low-cost method using H2SO4/H2O2 is highly efficient to create nanotopography on Ti surfaces, which elicit similar bone response compared with a microtopography presented in a commercially available Ti implant.

    ABSTRACT: Dental implants are widely accepted as the golden standard for the rehabilitation of an edentulous site following the extraction of a tooth. The ideal time for implant placement is dependent on the time required for partial or complete tissue healing and the adequacy of socket dimensions. The use of autologous growth factors is a promising new concept that aids clinicians in minimizing treatment time and increasing patients' satisfaction. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a protocol for ''accelerated-early'' implant placement. In this protocol platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is employed to accelerate soft and hard tissue healing and provide a better-healed recipient site for accelerated, early implant placement.Histological analysis revealed that at six weeks post-extraction the application of our approach resulted in delicate newly formed bone showing intense osteoblastic activity surrounded by connective tissue as well as areas of mineralized tissue. The present study is a proof-of-principle study of the acceleration of the physiologic post-extraction healing sequelae with the use of autologous growth factors. The ''accelerated-early'' implant placement concept is a bioengineered protocol that may aid clinicians to achieve increased primary stability, by placing implants in ridges in an advanced stage of bone healing, while offering patients the benefits associated with early implant placement. Controlled studies are warranted to verify the reproducibility of this treatment concept and identify specific indications where the use of the presented technique can lead to significant clinical results.

    ABSTRACT: Implant dentistry has become a predictable discipline for reconstructing the edentulous patient. Although conventional implants remain the primary type and diameter size used in reconstruction, small diameter implants (SDI) or mini dental implants (MDI) may play a role in specific indications. Although survival rates with SDI endosseous implants demonstrate high success rates, complications and failures may occur. It is essential that strict surgical and prosthetic protocols are followed or less than ideal outcomes can be realized. In this case report, the complications and eventual implant failure is due to a combination of reasons however, a thought provoking treatment plan and revision therapy can salvage the case and reestablish patient expectations.

    ABSTRACT: Porcine collagen matrix xenograft may be used to augment inadequate facial keratinized tissue of fixed implant supported partial dentures post-delivery. The collagen matrix should be at least 8-10mm wide and long enough to fit into the surgical wound. A bis-acryl stent should be used for fixation, protection of the matrix during healing and to potentially maximize supportive tissue generation. The bis-acryl stent is placed before the matrix becomes blood soaked because the matrix when wet with blood is very fragile and difficult or impossible to control. The stent may be removed after 5-7 days. After complete healing, the resulting tissue appears to be protective of the implant tissue margin. Keratinized tissue or immobile mucosa can form and be protective of the implant margin.

    ABSTRACT: Atrophic or severely deficient edentulous single tooth dental implant sites require osseous augmentation before any dental implant placement surgery. The may be accomplished by several procedures that may need to heal for several months to allow for osteogenesis. After the initial site preparation, an implant may be placed and then allowed to heal for 3-6 months before the prosthetics are placed. This entire procedure may take several months to a year to complete. With the technique described herein, these cases were treated with an allograft ring or cylinder of bone that allowed immediate placement of an implant. The allograft augmentation and implant placement are done at the same appointment. This technique shortens treatment time and may be valuable in treatment of failed implant sites. Further study is needed to refine and improve this technique.

    ABSTRACT: The specific aim of this study was to examine the relative contributions to the implant insertion torque value (ITV) by cortical and trabecular components of an in vitro bone model. Simulated bone blocks of polyurethane were used with two densities of foam (0.08 g/cc to mimic trabecular bone and 0.64 g/cc to mimic cortical bone). We have developed a new platform technology to collect data that would enable quantitative evaluation of ITV at different implant locations. Seven groups were used as modeling of varying thickness of cortical bone over a lower quality trabecular bone that have clinical significance: a solid 0.08 g/cc block, 1 mm, 2 mm and 3 mm thick 0.64 g/cc sheets with no underlayer, 1 mm, 2 mm and 3 mm thick 0.64 g/cc sheets laminated on top of a 4 cm thick 0.08 g/cc block. ITVs were recorded as a function of insertion displacement distance. Relative contributions of ITV ranged from 3% to 18% from trabecular bone and 62% to 74% from cortical bone depending on the thickness of the cortical layer. There was a synergistic effect on ITVs when an implant was inserted into 2mm and 3mm cortical layers laminated atop trabecular blocks. Finally, an implant with a reverse bevel design near the abutment showed final average torque values were 34%+ 14% less than their maximum torque values. This work provides basic quantitative information for clinicians to understand the influence of composite layers of bone in relation to mechanical torque resistances during implant insertion in order to obtain desired primary implant stability.

    ABSTRACT: PURPOSE This investigation was undertaken to determine if multithreaded implants partially coated with plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite (HA) could be effectively loaded earlier than 3-6 months after placement. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight patients (22 men, 26 women) were enrolled in the study and received 48 implants. The population was divided into 2 groups: Group A implants (n=23) were loaded immediately on the day of surgery and Group B implants (n=19) were loaded 3 weeks after surgery. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans were taken preoperatively to aid in treatment planning. Bone density was evaluated by tactile feedback during surgery. Insertion torque was recorded at time of implant placement. Resonance frequency analysis, performed on the day of surgery, at the time of loading, and at 6, 12 and 24 months, was used to record implant stability according to the unit's Implant Stability Quotient (Osstell ISQ). Standardized radiographs were taken at time of implant placement and at 6, 12 and 24 months to measure crestal bone stability. Bone level changes were measured by software (Image J, available online at:; last accessed 28 August 2014). Bone quality was judged as either type 1 (n=1), 2 (n=31), 3 (n=15), or 4 (n=1). There were no failures in the Group A (survival=100%, n=23/23) and 1 failure in Group B (survival=94.7%, n=18/19). After 2 years in function, cumulative mean radiographic bone loss was 0.75±0.50mm (maxillae: 0.92±0.49mm, n=14; mandibles: 0.67±0.49mm, n=28). No differences in bone levels were noted between implants placed in previously augmented and non-augmented sites, and there were no periodontal or soft tissue complications.CONCLUSIONS After 2 years in function, implants partially coated with plasma-sprayed and hydrothermally treated HA were clinically predictable when restored in occlusion immediately after or within 3 weeks of implant placement.
