The treatment of oral cavity cancer may impair speech and swallowing function. Optimizing posttreatment function may lead to significant improvement of quality of life.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanical behavior of implant-supported cemented restorations placed on two types of abutment design, with and without a prosthetic finish line, evaluating fracture resistance and the type of fracture produced in the abutment-crown complex.
Implant-retained mandibular overdentures are a proven treatment modality for edentulous patients. Low-profile stud attachments may allow divergence between the abutments up to 40 degrees. The purpose of this study was to investigate load transfer characteristics of various locations and nylon male configurations of low-profile stud attachment-retained overdentures.
To evaluate the bending strain exerted on a maxillary implant overdenture supported by rigid bar and nonrigid double crown connectors in models of high- and low-quality bone.
To compare changes in the prevalence of peri-implantitis when the unit of analysis is the subject and when the unit of analysis is the implant, by means of meta-analysis with subgroup and sensitivity analyses, according to the case definition and cutoffs. Periodontal probing depth (PPD) and bleeding on probing (BOP) were considered the primary variables.
To compare the bone responses of chemically modified implants using the plasma immersion ion implantation and deposition method with those of blasted implants.
The aim of this study was to assess the effects of simulated axial loadings on the pull-out force required to disengage a two-piece conical connection abutment from an implant.
To assess studies on edentulous patients rehabilitated using mandibular implant-supported profile prostheses and analyze the impact of different numbers of implants used on the implant survival rate, peri-implant bone loss, and prosthesis survival rate.
Central manufacturing of two-piece computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) zirconia abutments may provide a higher accuracy of internal and external adaptation at the expense of delayed restoration delivery. The aim of this study was to compare the fit of two-part zirconia abutments that were either fabricated centrally with the DEDICAM system or at a local laboratory. The field...
To investigate if the presence of a cantilever influences the survival and success of partial fixed implant-supported prostheses, through a systematic review and meta-analysis, with additional analysis of the survival and marginal bone loss rates and prosthesis complications.
Primary implant stability represents the first step for successful osseointegration. The knowledge of the correlation between host bone density, insertion torque, and implant macrogeometry seems to be fundamental to achieve sufficient primary implant bone fixation in each clinical situation. The purpose of this study was to measure, in vitro, the impact of dental implant macrogeometry and insertio...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and light-activated disinfection (LAD) against a 3-day-old bacterial suspension prepared from three different bacterial species present on titanium dental implants, and to analyze the possible alterations of the implant surfaces as a result of the PDT and LAD.
To quantify the rate of maintenance interventions of mandibular prostheses: complete dentures and overdentures retained by two implants, with either internal hex or external hex connections.
The primary objective of this study was to assess the accuracy of periapical radiographs in determining the peri-implant marginal bone level. The accuracy of the linear measurements on radiographs was considered as the absolute difference between the true, intraoperative or surgical marginal bone level measurements (direct bone measurements during surgical procedures) and the radiographic measured...
The objective of this investigation was to assess the microbiologic contamination in the inner surface of titanium implants prior to prosthetic abutment placement.
To investigate whether pretreatment patient-related factors are associated with the outcomes of dental implant treatment through multidimensional evaluations of oral health-related quality of life and health-related quality of life using the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) and the 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) developed from the Medical Outcomes Study, respectively.
To present the different definitions of peri-implantitis proposed in the literature and to propose a new evidence-based etiology-driven classification of peri-implantitis to accurately and fully describe the etiology of peri-implantitis.
Peri-implant bone thickness is an important local factor that could influence esthetic outcomes in immediate implant therapy. The aim of this study was to assess the thickness of the buccal bone overlying the anterior maxillary teeth in Kenyans.
The aim of this study was to evaluate volumetric stability of autologous and xenogeneic block grafts and primary stability of implants in maxillary grafted areas.
To compare, by gene profiling analysis, the molecular events underscoring peri-implant mucosa formation at machined vs laser-microgrooved implant healing abutments.
The aim of this study was to assess and compare the esthetic outcome of tissue-level (TL) and bone-level (BL) implants that had been placed as single implants in the anterior maxilla.
To compare the peri-implant radiographic crestal bone changes around implants placed at the subcrestal or crestal level.
To correlate the link between natural teeth located in esthetic regions of the arches before extraction with their definitive dental implant restorations, and to propose a new and contemporary esthetic index based on the natural dentition (EIND) preoperatively.
Several studies have clearly shown that osseointegrated implants, when inserted in growing bone, such as in adolescents, do not follow the eruptive path of adjacent teeth; instead, they act like ankylosed teeth, remaining in a stationary position for the lifetime, thus developing a progressive infraposition of the implant-supported crown. However, further studies have demonstrated that similar cha...
Inferior alveolar nerve repositioning is an option for treating the edentulous posterior mandible with insufficient bone height above the inferior alveolar canal. This report presents a case in which inferior alveolar nerve medialization was performed for placing dental implants. In the second postoperative week, mandibular fracture occurred after biting on a relatively solid piece of food, which ...
