The purpose of the present case report was to describe the surgical treatment of a peri-implantitis lesion associated with a regenerative approach. A 48-year-old patient came to authors' attention 36 months after the placement of a dental implant (ITI-Bonefit Straumann, Waldenburg, Switzerland) in position 46. A swelling of the peri-implant soft tissues was(More)
Solitary bone cyst (SBC) is an intraosseus radiolucent lesions that defers from real cysts for the fact that peripheral epithelial lining is totally absent. It could be classified as a psudocyst and occurs most frequently in young patients. In most cases SBC doesn't cause symptoms and it is often diagnosed accidentally during routine radiographic(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to retrospectively investigate the influence of potential risk indicators on the development of peri-implant disease. METHODS Overall, 103 patients referred for implant treatment from 2000 to 2012 were randomly enrolled. The study sample consisted of 421 conventional-length (>6 mm) non-turned titanium implants that(More)
Apocrine hidrocystomas are rare benign cystic tumors originating from the secretory portion of apocrine sweat glands. To the best of our knowledge, there is no evidence currently available reporting the presence of apocrine hidrocystomas in the oral cavity. Therefore, this case report aims to describe the clinical and histological features of an apocrine(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present long-term study was to retrospectively evaluate the survival rate of implants placed in regenerated maxillary sinuses and to assess the influence of hypothetical predictors of implant failure. METHODS A database including 218 patients who received dental implants after sinus lift procedures was analyzed. The following(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the in vivo accuracy of flapless, computer-aided implant placement by comparing the three-dimensional (3D) position of planned and placed implants through an analysis of linear and angular deviations. METHODS Implant position was virtually planned using 3D planning software based on the functional and(More)
PURPOSE In the past few years, the use of fresh frozen bone (FFB) grafts has significantly increased. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reconstruction of alveolar bone using femoral head and iliac crest FFB grafts. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 10 patients who need endosseous implant insertion in severe atrophic maxillae. The patients(More)
AIM The odontogenic keratocyst (KCOT) is a locally aggressive, cystic jaw lesion with a high growth potential and a propensity for recurrence. Considering its neoplastic features, treatments of keratocysts are required and they are generally classified as conservative or aggressive. However, although in literature there are several studies, the choice of(More)
Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is an inherited disorder characterized by abnormality of ectodermally derived structures. A recurrent oral finding is oligodontia, which in turn leads to a severely hypotrophic alveolar process with typical knife-edge morphology and adverse ridge contours. This unfavorable anatomy can seriously hamper proper implant placement.(More)
The approach to skeletal dysmorphisms in the maxillofacial area usually requires an orthodontic treatment by means of fixed appliances, both before and after the surgical phase. Since its introduction, Invisalign system has become a popular treatment choice for the clinicians because of the aesthetics and comfort of the removable clear aligners compared(More)
