Comparison of soft tissue replication between conventional and digital impressions for definitive single unit implant rehabilitation in the esthetic zone.
This article was published in the following journal.
This case series illustrates a simplified soft tissue management, namely, the subperiosteal peri-implant augmented layer (SPAL), to increase hard and soft tissue dimensions at the most coronal portion...
This invited commentary reviews the use of splinting vs nonsplinting in implant impressions.
Failure of a natural tooth may not permit placement of an implant at the time of extraction due to insufficiency in available bone to house the implant. Reconstruction of the extraction socket frequen...
To compare the survival rate of abutments, marginal bone loss and peri-implant soft tissue discoloration amongst implant-supported single crowns with different abutment materials.
Soft tissue stability is crucial to obtain and maintain optimal esthetic results.
Six patients with a single unit implant in the anterior maxilla (from premolar to premolar), after at least 3 months with provisional implant supported restoration will be submitted to def...
A recent systematic review (Lee et al, 2016) reported that placement of a soft tissue graft concurrent with immediate implantation may contribute to the stability of gingival level and the...
The aim of the present study was to propose the employment of Bio-Oss® and Bio-Gide® at implant site in order to evaluate if the increased bucco-lingual bone thickness could enhance the ...
The aim of this study is to clinically evaluate peri-implant soft tissue esthetics around single delayed implants in the esthetic zone.
Following tooth loss, a considerable reduction in hard- and soft-tissue volume can be expected (Tan WL, et al., 2012), (AraujoMG, et al., 2015). In the anterior maxilla, tissue loss can ma...
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
Procedure of producing an imprint or negative likeness of the teeth and/or edentulous areas. Impressions are made in plastic material which becomes hardened or set while in contact with the tissue. They are later filled with plaster of Paris or artificial stone to produce a facsimile of the oral structures present. Impressions may be made of a full complement of teeth, of areas where some teeth have been removed, or in a mouth from which all teeth have been extracted. (Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
