Dental Implant Fractures – Aetiology, Treatment and Case Report by Goiato

This study aimed to investigate the etiology, clinical manifestations, and treatment options of dental implants fractures through a literature review and to relate a clinical report. Click here for the paper

Immediate implant placement: treatment planning and surgical steps for successful outcome

The methods and modes through which we place implants vary greatly from the classic studies conducted by Branemark and colleagues-these were largely delayed and the prosthesis had a distinct design with highwater cylinders allowing good access for oral hygiene. As... Continue Reading →

Dental implants in patients affected by systemic diseases, Donos & Calciolari

Several systemic diseases (and relative medications) have been reported to impair or in some cases complicate dental implant surgery. In broader terms, when dealing with patients suffering from systemic diseases, the monitoring of the medical condition and of the related... Continue Reading →

Guidance on the standards of care for NHS-funded dental implant treatment

I was quite flattered to be asked to re-draft the Royal College of Surgeons Guidance on implants in the NHS in 2011. This was something I felt at the time required a lot of responsibility and gave me some kudos... Continue Reading →

Occlusion in implant dentistry. A review of the literature of prosthetic determinants and current concepts, Gross 2008

Today the clinician is faced with widely varying concepts regarding the number, location, distribution and inclination of implants required to support the functional and parafunctional demands of occlusal loading. Primary clinical dilemmas of planning for maximal or minimal numbers of... Continue Reading →

Zygomatic Implant Options for the Atrophic Maxilla: Case Report

The use of zygomatic bone for implant placement can be a predictable alternative to certain other treatment tech- niques when rehabilitating the atrophic maxilla. Despite the high success rates of zygomatic implants, there is no consensus in the literature about... Continue Reading →

Peri-implantitis. Part 2: Prevention and maintenance of peri-implant health by Alani & Bishop

The prevention of any disease process should be the cornerstone of any healthcare provision. This ethos is well established in dentistry with plaque associated disease such as periodontitis and caries but is at the current time less developed for peri-implantitis.... Continue Reading →

Peri-implantitis. Part 1: Scope of the problem by Alani

Peri-implantitis is a relatively new disease process that results in gingival in ammation and bone loss around implants. The associated co-morbidities are signi cant due to the relative nancial and biological costs of implant provision. At the current time there... Continue Reading →

Rationale for Socket Preservation after Extraction of a Single-Rooted Tooth when Planning for Future Implant Placement by Irinakis

After tooth extraction, the alveolar ridge will commonly decrease in volume and change morphologically. These changes are usually clinically significant and can make placement of a conventional bridge or an implant-supported crown difficult. If bone resorption is significant enough, then...

The socket-shield technique: A new approach to immediate implant placement by Gluckman et al.

Bucco-palatal collapse of the postextraction ridge is a signi cant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in the literature. A slightly different approach is to use... Continue Reading →

Dental Implant Basics: Impression Making by Bhakta et al. 2011

Accurate impressions provide a foundation for successful implant prosthodontics. This paper is aimed at the general dental practitioner (GDP) who would like to start restoring dental implants and demysti es the terminology, introduces the basic armamentarium and discusses the relative...

Treatment planning the edentulous mandible Chee & Jivraj

 Most difficulty with complete denture prostheses arises from the inability to function with the mandibular prostheses. Factors that adversely affect successful use of a complete denture on the mandible include: 1) the mobility of the floor of the mouth, 2)... Continue Reading →

Dental Implant Basics: Soft Tissue Manipulation by Alani & Corson

Achievement of optimal aesthetics on implants in the anterior region can be difficult due to inherent differences to the natural dentition. An important consideration is the peri-implant soft tissues which can be modified to create a more natural emergence profile... Continue Reading →

Exotic encounters with dental implants: managing complications with unidentified systems by Mattheos 2012

As the application of dental implants increases worldwide, so is the number of technical and biological complications that general dental practitioners will be called to manage, while maintaining implant patients. In addition, the greater patient mobility encountered today combined with a... Continue Reading →

Surgical Guides for Implant Dentistry

The goal of an implant supported reconstruction is to obtain optimal aesthetics and function. In order to achieve this, visualisation of the final restorative reconstruction is necessary prior to beginning treatment. The term ‘restorative-driven’ treatment planning has been used to...

Screw versus Cement Retained Implant restorations by Chee and Jivraj

Implant supported restorations can be attached to implants with screws or can be cemented to abutments which are secured to implants with screws. Screw retained implant restorations are generally the preferred method of securing restorations to implants. This article is... Continue Reading →

Immediate implant placement

Diagnosis and treatment planning are key factors in achieving successful outcomes after placing and restoring implants placed immediately after tooth extraction. The efficacy of immediate implant placement has been established and shown to be predictable if reasonable guidelines are followed.

Dental Implant tourism

This paper presents five cases where complications have arisen in the setting of dental tourism.

Implants and the ageing patient by Dudley 2015

Dental implant treatment has established benefits over traditional alternatives. Age-related changes in systemic and oral health in conjunction with social, economic and resource considerations often introduce complexities into dental implant treatment of ageing patients. When time, opportunity, discomfort and maintenance costs are... Continue Reading →
