11. Utilization of the Co-Axis Dental Implant to Avoid Sinus Augmentation: A Case Report
Typically as teeth are lost in the posterior maxilla, the maxillary sinus enlarges (pneumatization) over time. This phenomenon also occurs with aging. Enlargement of the sinus presents challenges to implant placement in the posterior and frequently augmentation of the sinus is required to provide sufficient bone circumferentially around the implant. The Co-Axis implant (Keystone Dental, Inc. Burlington, MA), a unique implant incorporates an
angle correction in the platform which allows off-axis placement to avoid anatomical features such as the maxillary sinus.
25. The Keyless Partially Guided Implant Placement Protocol: Success Rate and Complications
89 implants were placed in 23 patients (7 complete, and 16 partial cases) using the universal simple guide kit. After CBCT and virtual implant planning, surgical guides with c-shaped sleeves were constructed. The implants were placed using flap or flapless approach according to the need for soft or hard tissue augmentation. The intraoperative complications, post-operative complains and implant survival rate were reported. All implants demonstrated insertion torque values greater than 30 Ncm.
33. Immediate Implant Placement with a Novel Approach to get Adequate Soft Tissue Coverage: A Case Report
One of the problems encountered with immediate implant placement is insufficient soft tissue to achieve a tension free primary closure. In this case report a simple and recent approach was performed to provide sufficient primary closure at time of immediate implant placement. A 38-year-old nonsmoking medically fit female patient presented to Prosthodontics Department, Faculty of Dentistry, Cairo University with a history of endodontic treatment in the maxillary left lateral incisor and repeated post fracture. The condition ended up with insufficient tooth structure was to support a post core restoration.
39. Factors Influencing Patients’ Acceptance of Treatment Plans at a Private Periodontal Practice
A written questionnaire assessed various factors influencing patients’ decisions to approve the recommended treatment, including opinions on the treatment duration and options, office environment, available resources, financial issues, outcomes, roles of various team members, efficacy of diagnostic/educational tools, pain and anxiety control, and ease of scheduling.
49. There is no Appropriate Evidence to Recommend or Discourage the use of Tilted Dental Implants to Enhance the Survival Rate of Dental Implants in Atrophic Jaws
The purpose of this review was to test the null hypothesis of no difference in the implant failure rate, marginal bone loss, and postoperative infection for patients being rehabilitated by tilted or by axially placed dental implants, against the alternative hypothesis of a difference.
