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)
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)
OBJECTIVES To compare the different variations of sinus elevation techniques with osteotomes, to evaluate the increase in height achieved, and to quantify the osseointegration periods and the success rates for the implants placed. STUDY DESIGN A meta-analytic study with descriptive statistics was carried out on sinus elevations using osteotomes, analyzing(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to carry out an ultrastructural study of the biomaterial-to-bone interface and biomaterial mineral degradation in retrieved bone biopsies following maxillary sinus augmentation using collagenized porcine xenografts (Osteobiol(®) Mp3) in 15 clinical cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine months after sinus lifting, bone(More)
UNLABELLED Since Brånemark first started developing its implant system, there has been a continuous and significant evolution in oral implantology through experimental and clinical research, and many of the concepts that were once considered valid have now become the subject of debate. The insertion of the implant immediately after extraction of the tooth(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare satisfaction with function and hygiene maintenance in completely edentulous elderly patients rehabilitated with implant-supported fixed prostheses, overdentures, and conventional prostheses. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 150 geriatric patients were divided into three groups: Group 1 (CD) patients(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)
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)
