This article describes the use of the subepithelial connective tissue graft as a donor source for root coverage. The success of these grafts has been attributed to the double-blood supply at the recipient site from the underlying connective tissue base and the overlying recipient flap. Four cases have been illustrated to demonstrate the versatility of this(More)
A technique has been described for areas of single or multiple root coverage, especially in the maxilla, for coverage of existing crown margins, and for areas requiring a combination of ridge augmentation and root coverage. The success of the subepithelial connective tissue graft is attributed to the double blood supply at the recipient site from the(More)
This paper describes a new 5.0-mm-diameter self-tapping implant, a modification of the standard Brånemark fixture designed to increase the amount of bone-to-titanium surface contact and to capture dense bone at the lateral and crestal borders of the alveolus. Indications for its use include (1) areas of inadequate bone height, (2) areas of poor bone quality(More)
In a search for polyps in the intramural portion of the fallopian tubes, 2156 hysterosalpingograms were reviewed. In 54 cases polyps of different size and form were detected. Correlation of the findings with fertility histories and follow-up revealed that about one-half (46%) of the women with polyps did not conceive. Among both women who conceived and(More)
OBJECTIVES In the light microscope compare the amount of bone saucerization for non-threaded cylindrical and threaded implant designs in retrieved samples from patients. MATERIAL AND METHOD Consecutively received retrieved oral implants from 117 patients, whereof 85 non-threaded cylindrical and 85 Brånemark implants, have been included in the study. For(More)
This article reports on the efficacy of a technique involving expansion of edentulous ridges of less than 3 mm in width by means of a planned green stick fracture of the labial plate and simultaneous implant placement without the need for membranes. This retrospective case series includes long-term results from 21 patients with 36 sites and 37 implants with(More)
