BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone substitutes for the surgical treatment of periodontal intrabony defects is based on a sound biologic rationale; however, the clinical results indicative of the synergistic effect of PRP remain ambiguous. The objective of the present study was to clinically and radiographically(More)
Soon after tooth extraction the bone resorption takes place reducing the height and width of alveolar ridge. This produces an altered morphology of the bone unfavorable for implant placement and implant placement becomes impossible without surgical correction. Socket grafting maintains and preserves ridge for implant placement.
Extraoral cementation is a technique that utilizes a stock abutment and a laboratory fabricated crown that is cemented extra orally; the advantage of this technique is that the retained excess luting agent during intraoral cementation, which can be a source of bacterial retention and cannot be observed radio graphically and is not possible to remove with(More)
Following tooth extraction, ridge preservation procedures are employed to regenerate bone in the extraction socket, limit consequent ridge resorption, and provide a stable base for implant placement. The purpose of this study is to histologically evaluate and compare bone regeneration in extraction sockets grafted with either a putty alloplastic bone(More)
AIM To measure implant stability using periotest values of implants placed in sockets augmented with calcium phospho-silicate putty (CPS Putty) as compared with implant stability in naturally healed sockets. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty two sockets were implanted with CPS Putty immediately after extraction. The sockets were re-entered after a healing(More)
Collagen is the most abundant protein in mammals, also making it the most important component of the body structurally and functionally. Collagen provides cell occlusiveness, biocompatibility, and resorbability. It is chemotactic for regenerative cells and may enhance the migration and attachment of fibroblasts through its space-making ability. Collagen(More)
As placement of implants into immediate sites involves management of the remaining root structure, these residual roots may be used as a guide for the development of osteotomy. This aids in implant positioning and prevents drill slippage into the residual root spaces during osteotomy drilling. Following completion of the osteotomy, the remaining root(More)
T ypically, the posterior maxilla demonstrates the lowest density of bone in the oral cavity. The posterior edentulous maxilla also presents special challenges in implant placement compared with other areas of the mouth due to progressive resorption that results in less available bone. This poor quality and quantity of available bone challenges the(More)
Placement of an implant in the posterior maxilla often relies heavily on a variety of procedures that increase the vertical dimensions of available bone. With numerous bone graft substitutes now available and recent advancements having been made in technique, the question arises of whether residual bone height still remains an absolute indicator for(More)
