OBJECTIVES To establish whether there is a high enough risk of bleeding in patients who take oral anticoagulants, such that it would justify not using oral anticoagulants when performing a dental extraction, as well as if the reason for and anatomical location of the extraction increases such risk. STUDY DESIGN We performed a bibliographic search in order(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the success and failure rates of short implants (10 mm or less) for oral rehabilitations in cases of limited bone height. STUDY DESIGN Review of the articles published on the topic between the years 2000 and 2010, and development of a descriptive meta-analysis of the results. RESULTS The majority of the studies obtain a cumulative(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify and evaluate the frequency of the different odontogenic conditions that may lead to maxillary sinusitis. STUDY DESIGN An observational and retrospective meta-analysis was carried out on 770 cases of maxillary sinusitis obtained from a literature review of 15 articles. RESULTS Maxillary sinusitis most commonly manifests itself as(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to evaluate the usefulness of the CompuDent program in determining the pre-operative volume of bone graft in maxillary sinus floor lifts, and to calculate the volume of graft necessary for rehabilitation using varying lengths of implants. STUDY DESIGN Based on the CompuDent program, we calculated the volume of graft necessary for(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the presence of sinus disorders and their diagnosis based on clinical and radiographic findings, correlating their presence with tomography tests and panoramic radiography. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a retrospective study on 152 patients who were seeking implant treatment, thereby allowing us to evaluate 42 patients who had abnormal(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the composition, surface characteristics and response to removal torque of an implant surface subjected to hydrofluoric acid etching and posterior passivating with hydrofluoric and nitric acid. STUDY DESIGN Twelve implants were initially selected and their physico-chemical characteristics were evaluated by means of energy-dispersive(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the optimum surgical treatment for oral antral communications (OAC) and to understand the main post-operative complications. STUDY DESIGN Meta-analytical, observational and retrospective study of 1.072 cases of OAC obtained from a literature review of 15 articles. RESULTS OAC occur slightly more often in men and during the fourth(More)
OBJECTIVE This work presents the results of clinical and radiological behaviour, for 2 years, of 290 implants treated with a first etching with HF and a second etching with HF and HNO3 acids and that were loaded 8 weeks after insertion. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN It is a prospective study on 290 implants placed in 56 patients with an age range from 28 to 81. The(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate graft types used for maxillary sinus augmentation and review success rates of dental implants inserted in these areas, analyzing the graft materials used, implant surface types and the moment of implant placement. STUDY DESIGN A meta-analytic study reviewing articles on sinus augmentation published during the last ten years. (More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the frequency of systemic pathologies in patients aged 65 years or more, who require oral care and possibly oral surgery. STUDY DESIGN We carried out a cross-sectional descriptive study reviewing 3,388 medical histories for patients from the Department of Medicine and Oral Surgery of the School of Dentistry at the Complutense(More)
