    9. Tridimensional Bone Reconstruction in an Atrophic Ridge with a Misplaced Dental Implant: A Case Report

    Background: Ideal dental implant placement is best achieved with a team approach involving all providers treating the patient. Failure to properly plan in advance, including consultation with appropriate dental specialists, may result in complications that can require substantial investments of time and resources to overcome. This case report documents treatment of a severely misplaced dental implant which led to significant iatrogenic complications.

    23. Bone and Crescent Shaped Free Gingival Grafting for Anterior Immediate Implant Placement: Technique and Case Report

    Immediate implant placement in a single staged approach, with or without provisionalization, can be advantageous in preserving gingival anatomy around dental implants. However, placing implants immediately in the changing alveolar bone of an extraction socket may result in progressive recession of the gingival labial margin over the implant restoration. This negative out- come may be overcome with enhanced labial thickness. Thicker labial gingiva and bone of the peri-implant tissue have shown to pro- mote long-term stable gingival margins.

    35. Short Sintered Porous-Surfaced Dental Implants with Indirect Sinus Elevation to Restore the Resorbed Posterior Maxilla

    Using short sintered porous-surfaced dental implants with the indirect sinus elevation procedure is a minimally invasive approach to replacing teeth in the resorbed posterior maxilla. 7mm long implants may be used at sites with as little as 3mm of original subantral bone height with predictable success if certain principles are recognized and followed. In this short paper, the author reviews the rationale, techniques used, and long term patient outcomes with this innovative approach.
