    6. Hybrid Dental Implants as an Alternative to Conventional Dental Implants, Eliminating the Need for Associated Ridge Augmentation Procedures

    Bone augmentation procedures are demanding concerning surgical skills and biostability of materials. As such, the revolution of advancements and search for alternative procedures for the replacement of missing teeth has evolved to avoid obvious problems and complications of bone augmentation procedures. The hybrid dental implants utilized in these cases provide proof of principle that this is a viable alternative to traditional dental implants when bone augmentation would be normally required.

    12. Gingival Revitalization by Inverted Gingival Pouch (IGP) Technique

    The reconstruction of bone and soft tissue in implant therapy for periodontally compromised patients is challenging. Based on our previous findings of periodontal surgery, a 10-year follow-up multicenter case series study was carried out in the United States, China and Taiwan. In the current article, we introduce a novel periodontal surgical procedure for Gingival Revitalization using the Inverted Gingival Pouch (IGP) Technique. The Inverted Gingival Pouch Technique might be potentially useful in achieving the goals of periodontal infection control, soft tissue regeneration, including increased width and thickness of keratinized tissue, bone augmentation, improved aesthetics, clinical safety, and efficiency.

    26. The Comparison of Implant Stability Between Two Dental Implant Surfaces using Resonance Frequency Analysis: A Pilot Study

    Although the chemically modified implant topography proves its positive rapid bone formation effect, the comparative studies on implant stability changes between the standard and modified surfaces are limited. Methods: Thirty patients were selected randomly into two groups: Straumann SLA and Straumann SLActive (Straumann Institute AG, Waldenburg, Switzerland). CBCT was
    used to determine the quantity and quality of bone. RFA measurement was performed on day 0 and 2; week 1, 2, 3, 4 and 8. The relationship between ISQ values, implant surface or bone quality were analyzed statistically.

    38. Decontamination of Titanium Surfaces with Air Polishing and Glycine Powder

    The efficacy of removing bacteria from smooth-surface titanium using an air-polishing device with glycine powder abrasive was evaluated. For smooth surface titanium, air polishing with glycine powder and water, glycine powder alone, water alone, or tetracycline and water significantly reduced the amount of Streptococcus oralis, Streptococcus mutans, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, and Tannerella forsythia.
