The L-PRF block is a combination of bone substitute with L-PRF. The use of a L-PRF block in bone augmentation therapies could enhance and improve bone regeneration. The primary objective ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the therapeutic effect of sloped dental implants. It can reduce the need of osteoectomy, reduce discomfort of procedures, and is easier for mainten...
Twelve participants with edentulous alveolar crests in the distal portion of the arches will be included in the study. At least two implant sites will be identified in each patient and wil...
Assessment of ascending ramus cortical plate for reconstruction of atrophic maxillary ridges versus chin cortical plates (Randomized clinical trial)
Evaluation the amount of bone height gained when using titanium mesh in closing the lateral window of the sinus compared to collagen membrane.Evaluation the quality of new bone gained when...
The behaviour of a 78-year-old, edentulous female resident of a care home, suffering from dementia indicated to her care providers that she was experiencing oral pain. At the left (pre)molar region of...
Alveolar ridge preservation is of great importance for successful implant therapy. This study investigated the effects of a xenogeneic tridimensional collagen matrix (CM) in conjunction with deprotein...
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 ...
The aim of the present retrospective chart review was to analyze by Computed Tomography (CT) scan technique the degree of maxillomandibular atrophies, searching for differences between totally- and pa...
The alveolar bone has a unique capacity to follow the teeth's movements. It is formed around erupting teeth and their periodontal ligaments: the more the teeth have erupted, the larger the alveolar pr...
Degradation or wasting of the PERIODONTIUM tissues that may involve the gum (GINGIVA), the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS), the DENTAL CEMENTUM, or the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT.
The total absence of teeth from either the mandible or the maxilla, but not both. Total absence of teeth from both is MOUTH, EDENTULOUS. Partial absence of teeth in either is JAW, EDENTULOUS, PARTIALLY.
The fibrous CONNECTIVE TISSUE surrounding the TOOTH ROOT, separating it from and attaching it to the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
The use of a treatment material (tissue conditioner) to re-establish tone and health to irritated oral soft tissue, usually applied to the edentulous alveolar ridge.
Resorption or wasting of the tooth-supporting bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS) in the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE.
