AIM: In this review, we look at the factor of the surgical experience and surgical workload in a variety of surgical disciplines and its effect on the intraoperative and postoperative complications rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An extensive systematic electronic search was carried out on the relevant databases. Two independent reviewers were engaged in selecting appropriate articles in line with the protocol. RESULTS: It was very interesting to see that only 52 studies could be identified as per the inclusion criteria and search keywords...

AIM: A large variety of dental materials are available for the production of implant-supported fixed restorations. Materials with different properties are likely to behave differently during clinical function, which may result in different prevalence and types of complications. The aim of the present review was to summarise, analyse and discuss the prevalence and types of complications or failures related to dental materials in implant-supported restorations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A strategy was set up using the PICO format and the search was performed using the PubMed database, including a hand search of reference lists...

AIM: To review available evidence in scientific literature on oral implants of severely reduced length or diameter. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Electronic and hand searches up to May 2017 were performed in order to identify clinical investigations providing implant survival and/or marginal bone resorption data for extra-short implants < 7.0 mm in length and extra-narrow implants < 3.5 mm in diameter (excluding one-piece mini-implants). RESULTS: A total of 2929 extra-short implants and 3048 extra-narrow diameter implants were investigated in 53 and 29 clinical studies, respectively...

The aim of the present systematic review was to evaluate reported survival rate and marginal bone (MBL) loss of implants with different surface roughness and followed up for 10 years or longer. For the majority of the 62 included clinical studies, no direct comparison between different surfaces was made, thus our report is mainly based on reported survival rates and marginal bone loss for individual implant brands with known surface roughness. The survival rate was 82.9 to 100% for all implants after 10 or more years in function and the marginal bone loss was, on average, less than 2...

Asepsis is described as a state free from microorganisms. In medicine, an aseptic environment is necessary and expected to avoid the spread of infection through contact between persons, sprays and splashes, inhalation, and sharps. Most dental procedures are performed in a "clean "environment with the common use of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as disposable gloves, masks and protective eyewear with disinfection of surfaces and sterilization of instruments. For surgical procedure such as the insertion of endosseous implants, the recommendations are not clear...

AIM: In this systematic review, we aimed to assess the impact of endosseous implants on the formation of an osteonecrosis of the jaw, as well as implant survival rates for patients under bisphosphonate (BP), antiresorptive and radiation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An electronic search was performed using PubMed, Embase, and Medline databases with the logical operators: "dental implant", "antiresorptive", "bisphosphonate", "irradiation", "radiotherapy", "radiation", "necrosis" and "survival"...

AIM: The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate the diagnostic value of CBCT compared with 2D imaging and clinical gold standard techniques in peri-implant bone defect detection and measurement. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Literature search was performed using MEDLINE, Embase and Web of Science databases up to July 2017. Clinical, ex vivo, in vitro and animal studies that assessed and measured peri-implant bone defects using different imaging modalities were included in this review...

AIM: Nowadays, oral implants are a leading concept in oral rehabilitation. Patient satisfaction with this treatment is high, but are the expectations of the patients met? The aim of this review was to systematically screen the literature on patients' expectations of implant-based therapy before treatment and to assess whether these expectations were being met. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A search strategy was developed for manuscripts dealing with patients' expectations of implant-based therapy to support different types of prosthodontics...

Movement disorders encompass a wide range of medical conditions that demonstrate changes to muscle function and tone which present with orofacial dyskinesia and dystonia. The most common conditions exhibiting these features are Parkinson's disease, Down syndrome, chorea and epilepsy. AIM: To establish whether implant success in patients suffering from movement disorders is similar to the general population, identifying risk factors and noting recommendations that may aid maintenance programmes...

AIM: To describe general observations of immunological reactions to foreign materials and to realize that CP titanium gives rise to a foreign body reaction with subsequent bone embedment when placed as oral implants. To analyse the possibility of titanium allergy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The present paper is of a narrative review type. Hand and Medline searches were performed to evaluate marginal bone loss of oral implants and the potential of titanium allergy. RESULTS: Immunological reactions to foreign substances include Type I hypersensitivity reactions such as allergy, Type II hypersensitivity reactions characterised by IgM or IgG antibodies that may react with blood group antigens at transfusion, and Type III hypersensitivity caused by antigen-antibody immune complexes exemplified by acute serum sickness...

AIM: To present recent data regarding prosthetic complications with implant prostheses and crowns as well as compare this data with data presented in a 2003 publication. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An electronic Medline (PubMed) with MeSH terms search was performed, focussing on clinical studies that reported data on prosthetic complications associated with implant fixed complete dentures, implant overdentures, implant fixed partial dentures, and implant single crowns...

This review provides an overview of review and consensus articles of the past 5 years regarding surgical complications in implant dentistry. The focus in this article is on surgical complications occurring after implant insertion and on risk factors that compromise oral implant osseointegration.

"If terms be incorrect, then statements do not accord with facts". (Confucius) "Words form the thread on which we string our experiences". (Aldous Huxley) Semantics is a term coined by Michel Bréal (1832 to 1915) a Jewish German-French linguist referring to the Greek semantikos (= meaning) in his 1897 book, "Essai de sémantique". He was a very gifted man: for example, he was the one who suggested to Pierre de Coubertin to include the marathon in the Olympic Games and who also, with the help of a Francophile American dental practitioner, Thomas William Evans, created the "Doctorat d'Université", finally allowing American students to pursue their doctorate at a French university...

PURPOSE: To present a case of a woman referred for the management of displacement of one implant in her right posterior mandible that had occurred three days previously. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After implant placement, the practitioner was no longer able to detect the implant and inserted a second one at the same site without taking a control radiograph. At the end of surgery, when a radiograph was finally taken, the first implant appeared displaced into the mandible body...

PURPOSE: To present a case report of autogenous transplant of two impacted mandibular canines. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 12-year-old girl, with vestibular impaction of mandibular left and right canines had them extracted and transplanted in the anatomically corrected sites, after an unsuccessful orthodontic treatment including surgical exposure. RESULTS: After 2 years the teeth are stable and their vitality is maintained. CONCLUSIONS: In this case the transplantation of the mandibular canines was successful and maintained the vitality of the transplanted teeth for at least 2 years...

PURPOSE: To report the 5-year clinical and aesthetic outcomes of a novel surgical-prosthetic approach for the treatment of buccal soft tissue dehiscence around single dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty patients with buccal soft tissues dehiscence around single implants in the aesthetic area were treated by removing the implant-supported crown, reducing the implant abutment, coronally advanced flap in combination with connective tissue graft and final restoration...
