The aim was to carry out a literature review of preoperative radiographic signs in orthopantomography (OPG) and computed tomography (CT) related with the risk of inferior alveolar nerve damage during the surgical extraction of lower third molar (LTM). A search was made on PubMed for literature published between the years 2000 and 2009. In the reviewed(More)

INTRODUCTION Periapical surgery using ultrasound allows the treatment of root canals of difficult access, with the sacrifice of little root tissue. As a result, periapical disorders which were condemned to treatment failure in the past can now be dealt with successfully. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 71 teeth presenting 100 root canals treated with ultrasound(More)
A review of the literature is made to evaluate factors that influence probing depth and attachment level on the distal aspect of the lower second molar (L2M) following extraction of a lower third molar (L3M). The PubMed database was searched for studies published between 1997 and March 2009 using the following keywords: mandibular third molar, distal(More)
The objective was to review publications on indirect osteotome maxillary sinus floor elevation (OMSFE) procedures. Studies published between 1999 and 2010 on patients with a minimum of 1 year of follow-up were analyzed. Fourteen studies were included. Indirect OMSFE is indicated for a bone height of 6-8 mm. More bone height was gained when graft material(More)
The aim of vertical augmentation of the alveolar ridge is to restore resorbed alveolar ridges. This technique is critical to the placement of dental implants in a favorable position and the enhancement of restoration esthetics. The present report describes a technique for surgical preservation of the anterior maxillary process using maxillary bone from the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate implant periapical lesions, and to describe their treatment. The hypothesis of this evaluation is that implant periapical lesions are disorders of the area surrounding the apex of a dental implant, and that their etiology can be multifactorial (ie, vascular impairment, vascular ischemia, overheating of bone during drilling, and(More)
Bone defects at mandibular alveolar crest level complicate the placement of dental implants in the ideal location. Surgical reconstruction using autologous bone grafts allows implant fixation in an esthetic and functional manner. We describe a patient with large mandibular bone loss secondary to periodontal inflammatory processes. Reconstruction of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Accessing the tooth roots in periapical surgery (PS) requires the elimination of periapical bone. OBJECTIVE To compare the postoperative morbidity and prognosis following PS on mandibular molars by ostectomy, or by osteotomy with repositioning of the vestibular cortical. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective clinical study of mandibular(More)
New treatments for orofacial pain have been developed in recent years. In the case of cluster headache, new drugs are now administered via the intranasal route, while in patients with chewing pain the topical application of capsaicin and the use of oral splints in combination with jaw movement exercises are the most widely used management approaches. In the(More)
