11. Immediate Placement of Mandibular Molar Dental Implants: Case Report By Dr. Mohit Zamad, Dr. Aakanksha Zamad, Dr. Akshay Daga, Dr. Pankaj Akhare
The Esthetics and functional integrity of the periodontal tissues may be compromised by dental loss. Implant has become a wide option to maintain periodontal architecture. Diagnosis and treatment planning is the key factors in achieving the successful outcomes after placing and restoring implants placed immediately after tooth extraction. This case report describes the procedure of placement of implant in the anterior teeth region after immediate extraction.
19. Treatment Planning Considerations for Cemented Versus Screw-Retained Single Tooth Dental Implant Restorations in the Aesthetic Zone – Advantages, Disadvantages and Maintenance Issues: A Literature Review By Kenneth K.H. Cheung
The use of a single implant retained crown to replace a missing tooth has gained popularity since 1990. There are two design options for the implant supported crown: the crown can be cemented onto an implant supported abutment (be it pre-fabricated or custom designed, as would be done if the crown were tooth supported) or the crown can be a screw-retained, direct-to-fixture crown (provided that the implant has been placed at the correct axial inclination). Different philosophies exist regarding the best type of implant restorations in the aesthetic zone. The literature details the advantages and disadvantages for both screw- and cement- retained implant prosthesis.
31. Ultraviolet Photofunctionalization of Dental Implant Surfaces: A Review By Dr. Suraj Khalap, Dr. Ajay Mootha, Dr. Ramandeep Dugal
Ultraviolet photofunctionalization of titanium implants has shown promising results for treatment outcomes. Photofunctionalized dental implants have shown promising findings in regards to bone implant contact, osteoblast response, and dental implant stability, hence opening up the avenue to be incorporated in daily implant practice. This article summarizes the findings of all the recent in vivo & in vitro research conducted regarding UV photofunctionalization of titanium implants.
41. A Report of Three Dental Implant Fractures with Literature Review By Dr. Ahmad Rohania, Dr. Abbas Taher, Dr. Ammar Albujeer Shawki, Dr. Salma Pirmoazzen
Dental implant fracture is one of the rare complications in implant dentistry. Such fractures pose important problems for both the patient and the dental surgeon. According to most literature sources, the prevalence of dental implant fractures is very low with approximately 2 fractures per 1000 implants placed. Considering that implant placement is becoming increasingly popular, an increase in the number of failures due to late fractures is to be expected. Clearly, careful treatment can contribute to reduce the incidence of fracture. An early diagnosis of the signs alerting to implant fatigue, such as loosening, torsion or fracture of the post screws and prosthetic ceramic fracture, can help prevent an undesirable outcome. Also it is important to know and apply the measures required to prevent implant fracture. This article presents three cases with fractured dental implants and discusses management options and possible causal mechanisms underlying such failures, as well as the factors believed to contribute to implant fracture with literature review.
