The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on remodeling of autologous bone grafts used for augmentation of the floor of the maxillary sinus. In five edentulous patients suffering from insufficient retention of their upper denture related to a severely resorbed maxilla, the floor of both maxillary sinus was augmented with(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate surgical and prosthetic care and aftercare of maxillary overdentures supported by six endosseous implants and a milled bar mesostructure with Ceka attachments. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-nine consecutive patients with an edentulous maxilla who reported problems wearing a conventional maxillary denture were(More)
Insertion of endosseous implants in the atrophic maxilla is often complicated because of lack of supporting bone. Augmentation of the floor of the maxillary sinus with autogenous bone graft has been proven to be a reliable treatment modality, at least in the short term. The long-term clinical and radiographic outcome with regard to the grafts, the implants(More)
AIM The aim of the present systematic review of implant-supported maxillary overdentures was to assess the survival of implants, survival of maxillary overdentures and the condition of surrounding hard and soft tissues after a mean observation period of at least 1 year. MATERIAL AND METHODS MEDLINE (1950-August 2009), EMBASE (1966-August 2009) and CENTRAL(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to determine whether a new degradable synthetic barrier membrane (Vivosorb) composed of poly(dl-lactide-epsilon-caprolactone) (PDLLCL) can be useful in implant dentistry and to compare it with collagen and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membranes. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 192 male Sprague-Dawley rats,(More)
AIM The objective of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was to study the effect of implant surface decontamination with chlorhexidine (CHX)/cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) on microbiological and clinical parameters. MATERIAL & METHODS Thirty patients (79 implants) with peri-implantitis were treated with resective surgical treatment(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and histomorphological results of distraction of the severely resorbed edentulous mandible. In a group of 10 edentulous patients suffering from insufficient retention of their mandibular denture related to a severely resorbed mandible, the anterior segment was augmented as a preimplant surgical procedure(More)
Treatment of lower denture complaints of patients with an edentulous mandible with a height of at least 15 mm can consist of meticulous construction of a new set of dentures (CD), construction of a new set of dentures following preprosthetic surgery to enlarge the denture-bearing area (PPS), or construction of an implant-retained mandibular overdenture(More)
The aim of this prospective comparative study was to evaluate the condition of the peri-implant tissues of three different implant systems supporting a mandibular overdenture. Ninety edentulous patients (Cawood class V-VI) participated in this study. After randomization, 30 patients were treated with 2 Brånemark implants, 30 patients with 2 IMZ implants and(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the effect of the number of implants supporting a mandibular overdenture on the condition of the peri-implant tissues. Sixty edentulous patients (Cawood class V VI) participated in this study. After randomization, thirty patients were treated with an overdenture supported by two IMZ implants (group A) and(More)
