The purpose of this study is to document and evaluate how a bone graft material (Healos®) can help rebuild bone width. Dental implants can only be placed when enough bone is found and this bone graft may help to rebuild bone width for dental implant placement. The ultimate goal of this study is to evaluate how this graft material can help bone healing.

The objective of my study will be to assess and compare between two different approaches for placement of self- inflating osmotic tissue expanders used as preparatory surgery before alveol...
The purpose of this research study is to shorten the treatment time course for patients who are scheduled for surgery to have a dental implant(s) placed into the upper front part of their ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate esthetic outcome of implant supported single crowns after alveolar ridge preservation with beta three calcium phosphate with collagen type I in aes...
The aim of the current study is to compare lateral bone augmentation using the current gold standard (FDBA plus resorbable collagen membrane) versus Ossix Volumax as a stand-alone material...
This is a prospective, multi-center study to evaluate the use of CopiOs Pericardium Membrane, a bovine xenograft, with use of Puros Cancellos Particulate Allograft, for the augmentation of...
The narrow ridge in the anterior maxilla often requires horizontal augmentation for ideal implant placement. This article reviews the historical use of a closed, tunnel approach to augment deficient a...
Sinus augmentation is a routine procedure performed in patients presenting with severe atrophy of the posterior maxillary alveolar ridge who seek dental implant surgery. Although this strategy is succ...
The success of implant-based treatment is dependent on the correct restorative position of dental implants in the oral cavity. Often, the final prostheses require dental implants to be placed at sites...
Tooth loss generally leads to a corresponding loss of supporting bone structures, jeopardizing correct implant placement. Bone augmentation procedures facilitate reconstruction of the alveolar contour...
The absence of an adequate volume of bone at implant sites requires augmentation procedures before the placement of implants. The aim of the present study was to assess the ridge width gain with the u...
Preprosthetic surgery involving rib, cartilage, or iliac crest bone grafts, usually autologous, or synthetic implants for rebuilding the alveolar ridge.
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.
Surgical procedure to add bone to the ALVEOLAR RIDGE in children born with a CLEFT LIP and a CLEFT PALATE.
Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.
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.
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....
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
