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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical efficacy of polycarboxylate cement as retrograde filling material. DESIGN A prospective clinical study was made of 25 patients subjected to periapical surgery with ultrasound and magnifying loupes, in which polycarboxylate cement was used as retrograde filling material. Measurements were made of the area and diameter of(More)
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)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the relation between occlusal loading and peri-implant clinical parameters (probing depth, bleeding on probing, gingival retraction, width of keratinized mucosa, and crevicular fluid volume) in patients with implant-supported complete fixed prostheses in both arches. MATERIAL AND METHODS This clinical study took place at the(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)
PURPOSE The aim of this systematic review was to analyze the accuracy of implant placement using computer-guided surgery and to compare virtual treatment planning and outcome in relation to study type (in vitro, clinical, or cadaver). A further objective was to compare the accuracy of half-guided implant surgery with that of full-guided implant surgery. (More)
