In this prospective multicenter study, non-submerged ITI implants were followed in order to evaluate their long-term prognosis in fully edentulous jaws. A total of 1286 implants were inserted in 233 consecutive patients and, after a healing period of three to six months, the successfully integrated implants were restored with 163 overdentures and 95 fixed(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the clinical success of placing ITI dental implants in the posterior maxilla using the osteotome technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS All implants were placed following a one-stage protocol (elevating the sinus floor and placing the implant at the same time). Five hundred and eighty-eight(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this prospective study was to determine the incidence of neurosensory disturbance and the cumulative survival and success rates of ITI solid-screw implants placed in conjunction with an inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) transposition technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS 46 ITI implants were placed in 15 patients following transposition of the(More)
Implant rehabilitation of the edentulous maxilla may be somewhat problematic because of anatomic situations involving insufficient bone thickness. One approach in this situation is localized ridge augmentation with the split crest technique. This surgical approach allows the external cortical plate of the maxilla to be moved in a labial direction to gain an(More)
Intravenous flunitrazepam was used for 300 patients undergoing voluntary abortion by vacuum aspiration. 3 hours after the operation, all patients were completely conscious and able to leave the ward. 96.6% (288 subjects) had no memory of the procedure. Side effects were minimal and mild. Thus, this type of anesthesia is considered suitable in this type(More)
Displacement of dental implants into the maxillary sinus is not an uncommon event in implant dentistry and may lead to serious complications, such as sinusitis. To avoid systemic problems, performing the removal of the foreign body as soon as possible is suggested. Despite the fact that early implants dislocation has been reported several times, late(More)
