Optimizing esthetics for implant restorations in the anterior maxilla: anatomic and surgical considerations.
The placement of dental implants in the anterior maxilla is a challenge for clinicians because of patients' exacting esthetic demands and difficult pre-existing anatomy. This article presentsExpand
Outcome evaluation of early placed maxillary anterior single-tooth implants using objective esthetic criteria: a cross-sectional, retrospective study in 45 patients with a 2- to 4-year follow-up
TLDR
All 45 anterior maxillary single-tooth implants fulfilled strict success criteria for dental implants with regard to osseointegration, including the absence of peri-implant radiolucency, implant mobility, suppuration, and pain. Expand
Long-term evaluation of non-submerged ITI implants. Part 1: 8-year life table analysis of a prospective multi-center study with 2359 implants.
TLDR
It can be concluded that non-submerged ITI implants maintain success rates well above 90% in different clinical centers for observation periods up to 8 years indicating that the applied life table analysis is a reliable statistical method to evaluate the long-term prognosis of dental implants. Expand
Implant placement post extraction in esthetic single tooth sites: when immediate, when early, when late?
TLDR
The present review first analyzes the various phases of the development of therapeutic strategies over the years for post-extraction implant placement in single tooth sites in the esthetic zone, and presents the current knowledge concerning the terminology with immediate, early and late implant placement, the risk factors for the developed esthetic complications, and the selection criteria for the various treatment options. Expand
Early loading of non-submerged titanium implants with a sandblasted and acid-etched surface. 5-year results of a prospective study in partially edentulous patients.
TLDR
This prospective study using an early loading protocol with 6 weeks of healing demonstrated that titanium implants with the SLA surface can achieve and maintain successful tissue integration with high predictability for at least 5 years of follow-up in selected patients and sites. Expand
Outcome evaluation of early placed maxillary anterior single-tooth implants using objective esthetic criteria: a cross-sectional, retrospective study in 45 patients with a 2- to 4-year follow-up
TLDR
It was demonstrated that anterior maxillary single-tooth replacement, according to the concept of early implant placement, is a successful and predictable treatment modality, in general, and from an esthetic point of view, in particular. Expand
A 10-year prospective study of ITI dental implants placed in the posterior region. I: Clinical and radiographic results.
TLDR
ITI dental implants placed in the posterior jaw demonstrate excellent long-term clinical success and Recession depth and attachment levels appear to be good clinical indicators of peri-implant bone loss. Expand
Mechanics of the implant-abutment connection: an 8-degree taper compared to a butt joint connection.
TLDR
Three-dimensional, non-linear finite element models were created to compare the 2 connection principles under equal conditions and give insight into the mechanics involved in each type of connection and are compared to actual findings with the testing machine. Expand
Stress fatigue: basic principles and prosthodontic implications.
TLDR
The current knowledge of fatigue failure and test methods is reviewed, an overview of published studies is given, and guidelines for future prosthodontic studies of this nature are suggested. Expand
