AIM This systematic literature review was performed to investigate if smoking interferes with the prognosis of implants with and without accompanying augmentation procedures compared with non-smokers. METHODS A systematic electronic and handsearch (articles published between 1989 and 2005; English and German language; search terms "dental or oral implants(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this retrospective analysis of expert opinions was to optimize the level of patient information prior to implant-prosthetic treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight expert opinion reports on implant treatment cases compiled between 1996 and August 2001 were analyzed. RESULTS Seventy-five percent of all cases subjected to(More)
BACKGROUND Space-maintaining capacity, cell disclusive potential, and stability over time are crucial factors to achieving sufficient bone augmentation with membrane barriers. The case series presented here assessed a new collagen barrier used in bone augmentation. Clinically, the healing pattern, especially in cases of secondary healing, was studied. (More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present clinical study was to report on the clinical performance of screw-cylinder implants with special consideration of the survival rate of short implants. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this prospective study with consecutive patient recruitment, Camlog screw-cylinder implants with a particle-blasted and acid-etched(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this article was to conduct a review of current evidence focusing on parameters influencing wound healing after removal of mandibular third molars. SELECTION OF PUBLICATIONS For selection of publications, methods of evidence-based dentistry were used. Systematic selection of studies included in this review was performed after(More)
Successful bone augmentation requires predictable space maintenance and adequate exclusion of those cells that lack osteogenetic potential from the defect area. Natural bone mineral is considered to be osteoconductive and is used as space maker in combination with membrane barrier techniques. The aim of this study was to compare qualitative histological(More)
INTRODUCTION The present study was undertaken to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a recently developed electrostimulating device mounted on an individualized intra-oral removable appliance. MATERIALS AND METHODS The device, containing electrodes, a wetness sensor, an electronic circuit and a power source, was tested on patients with xerostomia in(More)
OBJECTIVE To address the focused question, is there an impact of platform switching (PS) on marginal bone level (MBL) changes around endosseous implants compared to implants with platform matching (PM) implant-abutment configurations? MATERIAL AND METHODS A systematic literature search was conducted using electronic databases PubMed, Web of Science,(More)
PURPOSE This retrospective longitudinal study evaluated the success of implant-prosthetic rehabilitation with the Frialit-2 implant system. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was performed with 504 patients, from two treatment centers, who had received a total of 1,554 implants between May 1990 and May 2001. The data of these patients, who received the(More)
Knife-edge configurations or non space-maintaining defects of the alveolar ridge limit the indications for implant-prosthetic rehabilitation. If ridge expansion is required, bone splitting and bone spreading techniques may be applied. Summers introduced a modified approach for ridge expansion by osteotome technique. The principles of this nonablative(More)
