The purpose of this case series was to evaluate peri-implant tissues in 10 patients at 1 year after placement of a tapered 3.0-mm laser-microtextured dental implant (Laser-Lok, BioHorizons) using a two-stage approach. Clinical and radiographic measurements were assessed. Keratinized tissue at the facial surfaces of each implant had a slight increase of 0.73 mm (95% confidence interval [CI], P = .058), and marginal bone levels had significant increase of 1.85 mm (95% CI, P = .005) at 1 year compared to baseline. These data suggest that 3.0-mm laser-microtextured implants demonstrate stable or improved soft and hard tissue parameters at 1 year postloading.

The aim of this randomized, prospective study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of microtextured implants with two different collar designs at 1 year postplacement. A total of 69 impla...
We hypothesized that crestal bone loss (CBL) and peri-implant soft tissue inflammation are increased when conventionally-loaded dental implants are placed in cigarette and waterpipe smokers compared t...
The tongue flap is a hardy flap that is routinely utilized by oral and maxillofacial surgeons to cover intraoral defects. It has not been described as a method for keratinized soft tissue coverage in ...
The aim of this prospective cohort study was to evaluate how the radiation technique can affect crestal bone loss and the implant survival rate in head and neck cancer patients treated with radiothera...
The objectives of this study were to clinically and histologically assess the capacity of bilaminar subepithelial connective tissue grafts (SCTGs) alone or in combination with gingivoplasty (Gv) to in...
Crestal bone and soft tissue stability around implants is an important issue in implant dentistry. Initial vertical mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be one of the factors having impac...
This study will compare two commonly used soft tissue grafting techniques (free gingival graft, FGG vs. connective tissue graft, CTG) to augment the soft tissue around dental implants with...
Suitable subjects who were in need of implant placement were randomised between two groups; Group-A (NA=23) received crestal implant placement. In Group-B (NB=23) a CTG harvested from the ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of superstructure material on crestal bone resorption and esthetic outcome of dental implants in patients with single missing tooth in th...
This prospective, randomized study will evaluate the performance of the Osseotite Certain Prevail implant when compared to that of the non-lateralized version of the implant. Study (null)...
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Techniques used to expose dental surface below the gingival margin in order to obtain better dental impression during periodental and peri-implant applications. The retraction of the gingival tissue can be achieved surgically (e.g., laser gingivectomy and rotary curettage) or chemically with a retraction cord.
Techniques using a laser to cut away and harvest a specific cell or cluster of cells from a tissue section while viewing it under the microscope.
Removal or disruption of DENTAL DEPOSITS and plaque-retentive DENTAL CALCULUS from tooth surfaces and within the periodontal pocket space without deliberate removal of CEMENTUM as done in ROOT PLANING and often in DENTAL SCALING. The goal is to conserve dental cementum to help maintain or re-establish healthy periodontal environment and eliminate PERIODONTITIS by using light instrumentation strokes and nonsurgical techniques (e.g., ultrasonic, laser instruments).
A method of non-invasive, continuous measurement of MICROCIRCULATION. The technique is based on the values of the DOPPLER EFFECT of low-power laser light scattered randomly by static structures and moving tissue particulates.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
