    6. Change of Tissue Biotype at Second Stage Implant Surgery: Report of an Alternative Method of Connective Tissue Graft Positioning Concurrent to Membrane Removal

    Due to the limited spaces between an implant and neighboring teeth, ideal positioning of the connective tissue grafts at the time of membrane removal may be challenging if the healing abutments are connected at the same intervention. To overcome this difficulty an alternative method of graft positioning and stabilization is described in this case report. Briefly the graft is located by the healing abutment and further secured by a modification of internal mattress suture.

    12. Immediate Versus Early Loading of Short Straumann® TE Implants in the Posterior Mandible: 10 Year Results of Randomized Control Clinical Trial

    The study aim was to compare clinical results of immediate and early loaded SLActive self-tapping implants. Methods: Fifteen patients with bilateral edentulous posterior mandibular were randomly assigned to treatment either with immediate or early loaded implants. Ninety implants were analyzed. The implant stability quotient was follow in the first year and bone resorption 1, 5 and 10 years after loading.

    24. The Choice of Radiographic Imaging for Dental Implant Placement: A Pilot Survey among Indian Dentists

    The present era of implant dentistry has seen exponential growth and its success mainly depends upon a proper treatment planning and its execution. Radiographic imaging has a pivotal role in the planning of implant placement and to keep the check on implant survival. Aim – To survey the radiographic prescription trends among the dental practitioners. Within the limitation of the study, it
    was observed that the majority of dentists sampled prescribe panoramic radiographs for dental implant assessment based on its availability.

    32. Prospective Clinical Evaluation of the Behavior of Single 6mm Length Dental Implants Installed in the Posterior Mandible: 36 Months Follow Up

    The purpose was to evaluate the clinical, biological and mechanical behavior of short single osseointegrated implants (6mm) in the posterior mandible over a 36 month period. A total of 58 implants were installed in 51 patients, 18 men and 33 women with an average age of 46.2 years. Average surgical insertion torque of 50Ncm was achieved and a success rate of 100% was observed in 36 months of follow up. Only mechanical complications such as loosening of prosthetic screw, clinically detected by the mobility of the crown, and biological complications, associated with plaque such as mucositis, detected by clinical inspection were observed.
