Two-stage crestal sinus elevation by sequential drills in less than 4mm of residual ridge height: a clinical and histologic case report

Resorption and pneumatization of alveolar ridges are common oc- currences in the posterior max- illa after tooth extraction. These may cause not only a quantitative reduction but also a qualitative deterioration of bone leading to a skeletal segment inadequate for implant placement. In these situations, the residual vertical bone height…

Permanent wettability of a novel nanoengineered, clinically available, hyaluronan-coated dental implant

The objectives of this study are to evaluate long‐term wettability of novel surface‐ engineered, clinically available dental implants, featuring a surface nanolayer of cova- lently linked hyaluronan, and to confirm the relationships between wetting properties and surface nanostructure and microstructure. Wettability measurements were per- formed on…

Soft tissue enhancement and implant placement following partial mandibulectomy due to squamous cell carcinoma

Many dental procedures allow for implant placement in partially or totally edentulous patients. Despite the availability of various implant and abutment types on the market, it often becomes quite challenging to achieve the biological and esthetic goals in a patient who has ridge deficiencies. Problems arise from the lack of adequate bone quality and quantity…

Biological width establishment around dental implants is influenced by abutment height irrespective of vertical mucosal thickness: a cluster randomized controlled trial

Prosthetic abutment height and peri‐implant mucosal thickness are con‐ sidered factors that influence marginal bone remodeling during biological width es‐ tablishment around dental implants. However, no clinical studies have evaluated their simultaneous effect on marginal bone loss (MBL).
