PURPOSE: The main objective of this study, involving 11 patients, is to share our experience on an integrated treatment modality, namely, the use of cellular therapy simultaneously with surgical reconstruction. Published works show that the implantation of monocytes in ischemic tissue enhances healing by providing neo-angiogenesis, a key mechanism in tissue regenerative processes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our approach included the utilization of autologous monocytes and endothelial precursor cells in the bone graft itself to improve the success rate of the integration of the bone graft and its long-term viability/survival by promoting angiogenesis...

Bone augmentation is used to supplement bone defects during dental implant treatment. In this technique, the area filled with bone prosthetic material is covered with an artificial space-making device or titanium mesh sheet, which must be manually adapted to the bone defect during the procedure before being fixed in place. Selective laser melting (SLM) method can be used to preadapt the titanium mesh sheet based on preoperative CT data. This method enables shorter surgery times compared with conventional titanium mesh sheet methods, as well as regeneration of an ideal alveolar bone shape...

BACKGROUND: Von Willebrand disease (vWD) is the most common hereditary disorder affecting coagulation. Patients with this disorder are at a higher risk of postoperative complications after dental surgery. This article discusses the successful treatment for a patient with vWD undergoing implant therapy. CASE DESCRIPTION: A young 21-year-old patient with vWD lost tooth #30 because of caries and required implant therapy. Through collaboration with a hematologist administering prophylactic desmopressin (DDAVP), the implant surgery was performed without any postoperative complications...

PURPOSE: Hydroxyapatite treated with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2/Hydroxyapatite (rhBMP-2/HA) or bovine bone was applied on extraction sockets for alveolar ridge preservation, and the results were compared with respect to clinical and histological bone formation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, randomized controlled clinical trial performed on 20 implant placement sites (10 in the experimental and 10 in the control group). rhBMP-2/HA was applied on extraction sockets in the experimental group and bovine bone on those of the control group...

OBJECTIVE: To compare prospectively the effect of different insertion torques (ITs) on marginal bone stability and study the effect of soft-tissue and buccal bone thickness as confounding factors while using a 3-dimensional radiographic evaluation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-nine implants were placed in 22 patients. IT, soft-tissue thickness, and buccal bone thickness were recorded at implant placement. Marginal bone loss was evaluated on individualized periapical radiographs and cone-beam computed tomography at 1 year after loading...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the failure risk and marginal bone loss of dental implants inserted by flapless or flapped procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Studies were identified by searching PubMed, Web of Knowledge, and the Cochrane Library within 10 years, along with a hand search of the reference lists of the retrieved articles. RESULTS: A total of 2717 articles were filtered after the searching strategy, and 31 studies were finally selected...

PURPOSE: Immediate implant placement in conjunction with intentional root retention is a recently introduced technique, but the majority of existing documentation is limited to short-term reports with low level of evidence. Hence, the aim of this study was to document the long-term clinical and radiographic results of the root membrane technique. METHODS: This retrospective study reports on clinical results of the root membrane technique for periodontal ligament-mediated immediate implant placement with up to 10 years of follow-up from 3 private dental practices...

PURPOSE: To introduce a novel modality that enables the measurement of forces applied during a transalveolar sinus floor elevation (tSFE) and to investigate the influence of anatomical and surgical factors on the necessitated force in sinus membrane detachment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A new endosinus probe, innovated with a calibrated load cell, was used to test the forces needed to perforate ten maxillary sinuses in 5 human cadavers. The same probe was also used to detach the Schneiderian membrane from the bony floor of 21 human subjects undergoing tSFE...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect(s) of screw-access hole (SAH) in different diameters on the cement-retained implant prosthodontic systems and surrounding cortical bones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty finite element models were divided into 4 groups: 2 types of full-contour (FC) crowns (Y-TZP, gold alloy) and 2 types of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns (based on Co-Cr, Au-Pd alloy). For each group, 5 crowns were simulated by varying the diameter of SAH (0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 mm)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate Ti-Base abutment height and cement type on the retentiveness of zirconia-based restorations. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Four millimeter (tall) and 2.5-mm-height (short) abutments along with temporary (provisional), glass ionomer (Meron), self-adhesive (U200), and conventional resin cement (Ultimate) were evaluated using pull-out testing (n = 10 crowns/group). RESULTS: Tall and short abutments demonstrated similar retention for all within cement comparisons, except U200 (P = 0...

PURPOSE: To compare hard- and soft-tissue changes around immediate implants connected with 2 types of healing abutments during the early phases of healing. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-eight immediate implants were placed into molar/premolar sockets through a modified osteotomy method. The gaps around implants were grafted with deproteinized bovine bone mineral. According to the size of the alveoli, the implants were connected with titanium healing abutments (traditional group) or customized healing abutments (CA group)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess if there is an association between buccal mucosa thickness and periimplant attachment loss after 1 year of function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 28 patients (14 periimplantitis implants and 14 healthy implants) were included. The buccal mucosal thickness was assessed using K-files at 3 mm apical to the soft tissue margin of the implant. Probing depth, recession (REC), clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing, and radiographic bone loss on mesial and distal sites of the implant were recorded...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the bone formed after maxillary sinus floor augmentation (MSFA) by bone autografting combined with hydroxyapatite (HA) that had been either treated with low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or not. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve biopsies were obtained from patients 6 months after MSFA using a combination of 50% of autogenous bone (AB) and 50% of HA (AB/HA group, n = 6) followed by LLLT (AB/HA-LLLT group, n = 6). The laser used in this study was gallium-aluminium-arsenide laser with a wavelength of 830 nm (40 mW; 5...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis of no difference in the long-term treatment outcome after osteotome-mediated sinus floor elevation with or without a grafting material. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A MEDLINE/PubMed, Cochrane Library, and EMBASE search in combination with a hand-search of relevant journals was conducted, including human studies published in English from January 1, 1986 to December 1, 2017. RESULTS: One comparative and 7 noncomparative studies fulfilled the inclusion criteria...

The presence of hard tissue dehiscence and thin periodontal biotype in the esthetic area is a challenge that can jeopardize function and aesthetic outcome of implants. Here, we present a successful simultaneous soft tissue and bone regeneration of dehiscence defects in the maxillary incisor region. The novelty of this case lies in the simultaneous bone regeneration and soft tissue augmentation and the use of acellular dermal matrix as a barrier for regeneration and biotype conversion around dental implants...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the nasopalatine canal (NPC) anatomical and volumetric measurements in anterior edentulous (AE) and anterior dentate (AD) individuals and to compare these findings according to sex, age, shape, and severity of resorption in the premaxilla. METHODS: Two hundred cone beam computed tomography images were divided into 2 groups: AE and AD. The diameter, the length of the NPC and the width, the length of the buccal bone anterior to the NPC were measured and recorded...
