Invasion of the maxillary sinus is a relatively frequent complication in dental implant treatment of patients with inadequate bone height in the posterior maxilla. This event usually occurs during surgery and sometimes produces sinusitis. There is a paucity of reports in the literature of implants migrating into the sinus cavity after a period of function.(More)
BACKGROUND Migration of oral implants through a previously consolidated graft is an extremely rare event. We reported 2 cases of migration at least 6 months postimplantation in sinus grafted in 2 stages, consequently over 6-month graft maturation period. CASE DESCRIPTION Sinus elevations and implants placement in 2 patients were performed. Clinical and(More)
BACKGROUND The performance of implant surgery in the posterior maxilla often poses a challenge due to insufficient available bone. Sinus floor elevation was developed to increase needed vertical height to overcome this problem. The present study described and reported a simple, safe and predictable bone graft mixture for the sinus lifting procedure. (More)
A prospective clinical study was conducted to explore the possible link between peri-implant bone loss and the widespread habits of tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption. One hundred and eighty-five patients who received 514 implants were followed up for 3 years. Peri-implant marginal bone loss was evaluated by digital panoramic radiography and image(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND OF PROBLEMS: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) gel is derived from an autogenous preparation of concentrated platelets and is widely used in implant dentistry as a vector for cell growth factors. However, limited data are available on its structure and composition. The present study was aimed at providing a flow cytometric and ultrastructural(More)
We report the case of a 74-year-old white male patient who had worn an overdenture for the previous 6 years, retained by 4 screwed implants and a bar, who presented with an exophytic multilobed lesion of 2.5 × 2.0 cm on the anterior aspect of 1 implant neck, which was surrounded by pink-reddish tissue. All of the soft tissue around the implant was removed(More)
UNLABELLED The objective of this study was to determine whether gynecological and periodontal clinical parameters and the immunohistochemical expression in placental chorionic villi of the markers cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), interleukin (IL)-1β, vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1 (VEGFR1), podoplanin, and Heat Shock Protein 70 (HSP70) are(More)
PURPOSE To compare the immediate implant success rates between sites with chronic apical lesions and healthy sites in the same patients 1 year postdelayed loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred sixty-eight immediate implants were placed in sixty patients at upper incisor, canine, and premolar sites. A split-mouth design was used, placing a minimum of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the scientific output of Spanish universities that offer a bachelor's degree in dentistry through the use of various bibliometric indicators. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 21 universities offered a bachelor's degree in dentistry in academic year 2016-2017. The search for papers published by authors(More)
Alterations of the p53 gene are the most frequently documented genetic abnormalities in human cancer. The aim of the present study was to analyse if this alteration is an early event in oral tumorigenesis and if the suprabasal expression of p53 is a marker of the presence and severity of epithelial dysplasia. Immunohistochemical p53 expression in 78(More)
