    ABSTRACT: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the aesthetic outcome of single-tooth locking taper connection implants placed in the anterior maxilla following a post-extractive non-functional loading protocol. Materials and methods: This preliminary clinical study involving 16 patients evaluated the results of 21 implants placed in areas with high aesthetic value. For each implant the "Pink Esthetic Score" (PES) and the "White Esthetic Score" (WES), the cumulative survival rate and the health status of peri-implant tissues were evaluated. Results: the cumulative survival rate was 100% at 2-years after prosthetic loading, mean total PES/WES was 16.9 ± 1.14 on a maximum value of 20. There was excellent plaque control in all patients and inflammation indices were within the norm. Conclusion: Within the limits of this study, this immediate non-functional loading protocol seems to be a successful procedure, both aesthetically and for the maintenance of peri-implant soft tissues. within the norm. Conclusion: Within the limits of this study, single-tooth morse taper connection implants placed in the anterior maxilla according to an immediate non-functional loading protocol seems to be a successful procedure, both aesthetically and for the maintenance of peri-implant soft tissues.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of a low intensity laser on the stability and reverse torque resistance of dental implants installed in the tibia of rabbits. Thirty rabbits received 60 dental implants with the same design and surface treatment, one in each proximal metaphysis of the tibia. Three groups were prepared (n = 10 animals): conventional osseointegration without treatment (Con group); surgical sites irradiated with a laser beam emitted in the visible range 680 nm (Lg1 group); surgical sites irradiated with a laser beam with a wavelength in the infrared range - 830 nm (Lg2 group). Ten irradiation sessions were performed 48 h apart; the first session was during the immediate post-operation period. Irradiation energy density was 4 J/cm2 per point in two points on each side of the tibias. The resonance frequency and removal torque values were measured at two time points after the implantations (three and six weeks). Both laser groups (Lg1 and Lg2) presented a significant difference between RFA values at the baseline and the values obtained after three and six weeks (p>0.05). Although the removal torque values of all groups increased after six weeks (p<0.05), both laser groups presented greater mean values than those of the control group (p<0.01). Photobiomodulation using laser irradiation with wavelengths of 680 and 830 nm had a better degree of bone integration than the Con group after six weeks of observation time.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction The aim of this report was to show results of post-extraction implants placed to rehabilitate an atrophic mandible using a protocol based on CTX records and PRGF application in order to prevent MRONJ. Case Presentation A 65-year-old male affected by rheumatoid arthritis who was a chronic consumer of bisphosphonates and methylprednisolone was referred to the authors seeking restoration of his mandible with a full-arch prosthesis. Bisphosphonates were suspended, and the marker for bone turnover (CTX) was recorded every 3 months until it exceeded 200 pg/mL. During surgery, PRGF was applied to all the implant sites and the alveolar ridge before suturing. No complications occurred during the healing period, and no signs or symptoms of MRONJ were detected throughout the 1-year follow-up. Conclusions The protocol described in this report can be a viable solution for preventing MRONJ in a patient who is consuming bisphosphonates and corticosteroids and undergoes implant surgery. Its purpose is to reduce the risk of infection and hasten the healing of bone and soft tissue.

    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: 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: 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.
