PURPOSE: To determine whether the placement and restoration of a single tooth posterior implant affects the survival, morbidity, pulpal, and periapical health of adjacent natural teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review identified patients who received single posterior tooth implants between August 2004 and July 2015 at the UNC SOD and met the study inclusion criteria. Preoperative and postoperative records were reviewed; survival and changes in coronal, pulpal, and periapical status of teeth adjacent to the implant and contralateral tooth were recorded...

BACKGROUND: Reactive oxygen species contribute to periodontal tissue homeostasis under control of anti-oxidative responses. Disruption in this balance induces severe inflammation and extended tissue degradation. PURPOSE: Aim of this study was to identify the expression levels of nuclear factor, erythroid 2 like 2 (NFE2L2/NRF2), Parkinsonism associated deglycase (PARK7/DJ-1), kelch-like ECH associated protein 1 (KEAP1), and 8-hydroxy-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) in peri-implant mucosal tissues affected by peri-implantitis, and to compare the levels to those of periodontally diseased and healthy tissue samples...

BACKGROUND: Currently, there is incomplete understanding of the fracture patterns in the implant and their association with clinical factors. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and pattern of implant fracture (IF) by using 9-year, long-term multicenter follow-up data. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The association of the incidence and differences in fracture patterns with clinical factors (based on patient variables and implant variables) was assessed for statistical significance using the Chi-square and Fisher exact test, as appropriate...

PURPOSE: Different implant-abutment connections are available and it has been claimed they could have an effect on marginal bone loss. The aim of this review is to establish if implant connection configuration influences peri-implant bone loss (PBL) after functional loading. METHODS: A specific question was formulated according to the Population, Intervention, Control, and Outcome (PICO): Does the type of implant-abutment connection (external, internal, or conical) have an influence on peri-implant bone loss? A PubMed/MEDLINE electronic search was conducted to identify English language publications published in international journals during the last decade (from 2006 to 2016)...

BACKGROUND: Clinical trials have suggested that dental implants with a tapered configuration have improved stability at placement, allowing immediate placement and/or loading. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the implant stability of tapered dental implants compared to standard parallel-walled dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Applying the guidelines of Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) statement, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were searched for in electronic databases and complemented by hand searching...

BACKGROUND: Micro-CT is a high-resolution, non-invasive, and non-destructive imaging technique, currently acknowledged as a gold standard modality for assessing quantitatively and objectively dental morphology and bone microarchitecture parameters. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to analyze critical dental and periodontal measurements characterizing the mandibular (MandFM) and maxillary (MaxFM) first molar architecture, as well as the corresponding bony socket, using micro-CT...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the accuracy, safety, and anticipation effect of a novel electrical conductivity device (SG) in maxillary osteotomy preparation for placement of dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-seven osteotomies were prepared by three operators with different levels of expertise, using the SG protocol in the maxilla of six fresh frozen cadavers. A pre-op CT measurement of the length of bone in the desired implant location was taken and compared with the final length of the osteotomy created using SG during surgery...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of implanting the percutaneous bone-anchored hearing system (BAHS) itself and inflammation of the peri-abutment skin warrant clarification. In this study, we aimed to acquire further insight into the immune responses related to BAHS surgery and peri-implant skin inflammation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: During surgery and 12 weeks post-implantation, skin biopsies were obtained. If applicable, additional biopsies were taken during cases of inflammation...

BACKGROUND: Template-guided implant placement is a method for optimal implant positioning from a prosthetic and surgical viewpoint. The treatment planning is based on three-dimensional X-ray data and model scan data, as well as on prosthetic planning (set-up). These data are matched (superimposed) with the aid of an X-ray template or by manual matching without special referencing. PURPOSE: The objective of this prospective controlled clinical study was to determine and compare the accuracy of the match with and without an additional X-ray template...

BACKGROUND: It is complicated to select an appropriate sinus floor elevation and the procedure for sinus floor elevation lacks of consensus. Sinus contour plays an important role in choosing a surgery approach. But there are still no published articles revealing the influence of sinus contours to sinus floor elevation surgery. PURPOSE: We propose a new classification depending on sinus contours from cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), analyze clinical characters of different types, and investigate the relationship between sinus contours and sinus floor elevation...

BACKGROUND: Short implants are preferred in cases of limited bone height. Length and design of implant credits to stability and implant success, shorter implants tend to survive for longer time duration. PURPOSE: Retrospective cohort study was conducted with an aim to assess the clinical outcome and cumulative survival rate of sloping shoulder implants over a period of 8 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data was collected from all patients attending private clinics in Dubai, UAE...

BACKGROUND: Anterior loop of the mental nerve is a very important anatomic landmark in implant placement and anterior mandibular osteotomies. PURPOSE: Two-dimensional imaging techniques are not competent enough to locate and measure the mental nerve loop in majority of the cases. Any injury to this loop results in pain/paresthesia/numbness in the region supplied by the mental nerve. The aim of this study is to analyze the prevalence and measure the length of the loop using cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) and calculate the average length and prevalence so that a safe margin can be given while placing the implants or the osteotomy cuts in the premolar region...
