BACKGROUND To emphasize the characteristics and possible pitfalls of nerve reposition in cases of severe bone resorption in the posterior mandibular area, and to modify hard- and soft-tissue manipulation accordingly. METHODS We analyzed retrospectively, 7 patients in which we performed full arch lower jaw rehabilitation. The patients presented for oral(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the success and complications following inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) transposition/reposition for dental implant placement in edentulous or partially edentulous mandibles. This was a multicenter retrospective study; patients who had undergone IAN transposition/reposition at four surgical clinics were retrospectively(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of implant length and diameter on implant survival. METHODS A retrospective cohort of 787 consecutive patients from 2 private practices between the years 2008 and 2011 had been evaluated. Patient demographics, site and implant characteristics, and time of follow-up were recorded from(More)
Successful implant treatment includes osseointegration as well as prosthetically optimal positions of the implants for esthetics and function. Computer-assisted oral implant surgery offers several advantages over the traditional approach. The purpose of this report was to evaluate a complex case of a 28-year-old female patient who lost all her teeth as a(More)
BACKGROUND Survival rates of dental implants are reported to be very high and seem to indicate minimal complications related to dental implants. PURPOSE The aim of this report was to evaluate in a cross-sectional study the prevalence of implant positioning complications as appears in postimplantation Cone-Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) in two of the(More)
To the Editor: Epidemiologic data show that, after the third molars, the canines, followed by the premolars, are the most frequently impacted teeth. When impacted teeth are asymptomatic, surgical removal might not be necessary sometimes. Patients, however, seek rehabilitation of the site when the primary canine is lost and the presence of the impacted tooth(More)

PURPOSE The aim of the present report is to describe the long-term follow-up of cases treated with implant tooth-supported removable partial denture (ITSRPD) after at least 15 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study sample comprised 20 consecutively partially edentulous patients treated with ITSRPD. Implants were placed in order to improve unfavorable(More)
In the atrophic posterior maxilla, successful implant placement is often complicated by the lack of quality and volume of available bone. In these cases, sinus floor augmentation is recommended to gain sufficient bone around the implants. Sinus elevation can be performed by either an open lateral window approach or by a closed osteotome approach depending(More)
