The Straumann Bone Level Tapered (BLT) implant Ø 2.9 mm implant was developed to allow treatment of patients with single tooth gaps of small dimensions in the lateral and central incisor ...
Implants have become the preferred method of single tooth replacement these days, patients receiving implant treatments not only expect restoration of masticatory function, they also expec...
Primary Endpoints : The implant survival and success rate of V3 and C1 implants will be compared. Implant success rate will be evaluated by measuring the peri-implant bone remodeling from ...
Dental implants have revolutionized the field of dentistry, providing improvements in function and esthetics. They are not, however, without risks. Bone loss around implants (i.e. periimpl...
Regenerating a predictable inter-implant papilla is the most complex and challenging aspect of implant dentistry. The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy of I shaped incision tech...
Tooth loss results in an inevitable alveolar ridge reduction. This has established a cautionary approach to extract, wait, augment, and insert the implant, in lieu of immediate placement. However, sav...
A wide literature shows a strong social gradient in tooth loss according to income, education and occupation, in both developed and developing countries. It has been shown associations between tooth l...
Tooth loss has been related to cognitive impairment; however, its relation to structural brain differences in humans is unknown. Dementia-free participants (n = 2715) of age ≥60 years were followe...
Advanced periodontal disease is often associated with severe loss of tooth support, necessitating prosthetic rehabilitation to restore function and esthetics. For tooth-supported restorations, periodo...
Conflicting results identifying the association between tooth loss and cardiovascular disease and stroke have been reported. Therefore, a dose-response meta-analysis was performed to clarify and quant...
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
A tooth's loss of minerals, such as calcium in hydroxyapatite from the tooth matrix, caused by acidic exposure. An example of the occurrence of demineralization is in the formation of dental caries.
Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processes
Horizontal and, to a lesser degree, axial movement of a tooth in response to normal forces, as in occlusion. It refers also to the movability of a tooth resulting from loss of all or a portion of its attachment and supportive apparatus, as seen in periodontitis, occlusal trauma, and periodontosis. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p507 & Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p313)
