This case report demonstrates 3-dimensional restoration of a severely-damaged alveolar ridge. Prior extraction, surgical trauma and infection resulted in total loss of facial and palatal cortices in an esthetically-critical area of the dentition. The compromised restorative and endodontic status of the adjacent canine precluded a conventional fixed bridge. Cytokine-enhanced stimulation of mesenchymal stem cells, combined with a resorbable rigid scaffold reconstructed the alveolar ridge… Expand

TLDR
Novel methods aimed toward the reconstruction and maintenance of hard- and soft-tissue volumes needed to support functional, hygienic, and esthetic implant restorations are focused on. Expand
Amnion-Chorion Strips in the Treatment of Peri-Implantitis, Report of a Case
TLDR
The results showed substantial bone fill around the implant with uneventful healing of the surrounding mucosal tissue, suggesting this technique can serve as a predictable protocol for the treatment of advanced dental implant disease. Expand

Prosthetic gingival reconstruction in a fixed partial restoration. Part 1: introduction to artificial gingiva as an alternative therapy.
TLDR
A rationale for consideration of artificial gingiva when planning dental prostheses is outlined, which can overcome the limitations of grafting and should be a consideration in the initial treatment plan. Expand
Gingival-colored porcelain for implant-supported prostheses in the aesthetic zone.
TLDR
Use of tissue-colored porcelain is a nonsurgical option of hard and soft tissue replacement that provides lip support, restores symmetrical gingival architecture, and replaces lost papillae. Expand

TLDR
Several methods of hard-tissue augmentation are discussed and a novel technique of regeneration aimed at improving clinical outcomes while decreasing morbidity associated with older, yet effective modes of ridge augmentation is presented. Expand
Prosthetic gingival reconstruction in the fixed partial restoration. Part 2: diagnosis and treatment planning.
TLDR
With appropriate planning that incorporates thorough clinical examinations, three-dimensional imaging, diagnostic wax-ups, and consideration of patient expectations, a modified approach to ridge augmentation, implant placement, and prosthetic reconstruction can lead to an ideal restoration that incorporates artificial gingiva.

Prosthetic gingival reconstruction in fixed partial restorations. Part 3: laboratory procedures and maintenance.
TLDR
This third and final installment in the series focuses on the laboratory and clinical procedures involved in fabricating a prosthesis with artificial gingiva and provides information on proper maintenance of these restorations. Expand
Esthetic outcomes of immediate implant placements.
TLDR
Immediate implant placements are believed to preserve soft and hard tissue form and contours, reduce the need for augmentation procedures, minimize surgical exposure of the patient, reduce treatment time and improve esthetic outcomes. Expand
THE REPAIR OF LOCALIZED SEVERE RIDGE DEFECTS FOR IMPLANT PLACEMENT USING MANDIBULAR BONE GRAFTS
TLDR
The mandibular symphysis graft technique offers ease of access, good bone quantity for localized repair, a corticocancellous block graft morphology, low morbidity, and minimal graft resorption, and an improved bone density results along with a shorter healing time as compared with other methods for bone repair. Expand
Horizontal ridge augmentation using autogenous block grafts and the guided bone regeneration technique with collagen membranes: a clinical study with 42 patients.
TLDR
The presented technique of Ridge augmentation using autogenous block grafts with ABBM filler and collagen membrane coverage demonstrated successful horizontal ridge augmentation with high predictability and was further simplified by using a resorbable membrane. Expand
Hard-tissue alterations following immediate implant placement in extraction sites.
TLDR
It is documented that marginal gaps in buccal and palatal/lingual locations were resolved through new bone formation from the inside of the defects and substantial bone resorption from the outside of the ridge. Expand
Immediate implantation in fresh extraction sockets. A controlled clinical and histological study in man.
TLDR
The present study shows that when a screw-type dental implant is placed without the use of barrier membranes or other regenerative materials into a fresh extraction socket with a bone-to-implant gap of 2 mm or less, the clinical outcome and degree of osteointegration does not differ from implants placed in healed, mature bone.
