    11. No Bone SolutionTM Computer Guided Implant Surgery Protocol for Prosthodontic Rehabilitation of the Severely Atrophic Maxilla

    Background: Prosthodontic rehabilitation of the severely atrophic maxilla presents significant chal- lenges to the restoring dental team. Inadequate bone quantity often necessitates time depen- dent augmentation procedures that consider- ably delay delivery of the final dental prostheses. This case report demonstrates a newly developed specialized computer guided dental implant sur- gery protocol for prosthetic rehabilitation of the severely atrophic maxilla: the No Bone Solution.

    19. Factors Driving Peri-implant Crestal Bone Loss – Literature Review and Discussion: Part 1 of 4

    Many factors contribute to the cumulative crestal bone loss seen around endosseous dental implants. This can create confusion for the practicing clinician and lead to undesirable outcomes. In this four part review series, we have searched the literature for papers published in English language refereed journals for the decade preceding May 2008 and attempted to identify the major factors associated with peri-implant bone loss. Part one of this article series examines surgical and anatomical factors associated with peri-implant crestal bone loss.

The patient was referred to an Oral and Maxillofacial surgery unit where emergency immediate airway management was performed. The patient subsequently required intubation, surgical drainage of the haema- toma, and admission to the Intensive Care Unit.
