Bone-oriented implantation with wide implant diameters
Hans-Dieter John, Germany
In many cases, an implantation is possible using complex technologies like GBR, sinus lift, or nerve transposition only. Since the own bone still represents the best support, with a sufficient width of the jaw ridge, the existing bone support can be optimally used with wide body implants (diameter 6 or 7 mm, Clinical House, PerioType XL implants). Even for small vertical heights (<8 mm), a large area is anchored in the bone due to the wide diameter. The advantages of these implants will be demonstrated with a case report...
An alternative prosthetic solution after loss of three out of six maxillary implants
Hakan Bilhan, Semra Can, Turkey
Implant is generally a successful treatment modality. However, implant losses can cause difficulties concerning the prosthetic treatment. While a single implant loss does not change the treatment course by itself, more than one loss can make, for instance a fixed restoration, which was promised to the patient in the beginning, impossible. This article describes a case where three of the maxillary implants were lost and a different prosthetic solution for the situation was applied. Since the 60 year old female patient was insisting on a fixed denture, at least in the anterior, a detachable anterior part which was connected with Bego s Ancora¨ precision attachments to the cast framework denture was constructed. The 16-month result was encouraging, but to be able to draw conclusions about the reliability of this method a longer observation period with possibly more cases is necessary.
Early loading of root form and conical implants with a sandblasted large-grit acid-etched surface: A 6-year clinical follow-up
Wiebke Semper, Susanne Heberer, Katja Nelson, Germany
Aim of the retrospective study was to investigate the success rate of Camlog implants loaded after a reduced healing period. Within the study, 464 implants (411 Camlog Root-Line¨, 53 Camlog Screw-Line¨) were placed in 102 patients (55 male and 47 female patients) with an average age of 61 years; the implants were allowed to heal post insertionem for a period of six weeks (mandible) and 12 weeks (maxilla) prior to loading. The patients were recalled in regular intervals and implant success was determined based on the criteria of D. Buser within the parameters of a standardized recall programme. A 6-year survival rate of 99.6% for all implants was calculated, 99.8% of Root-Line and 98.1% of Screw-Line implants were considered successful. Two implants (1 Camlog Root-Line, 1 Camlog Screw-Line) had to be removed prior to loading. All other implants fulfilled the success criteria. The results indicate that a reduction of the healing period to six respectively twelve weeks for Promote¨-coated implants does not seem to have a disadvantageous effect on the success rate
Deployment of a 410 nm Diode Laser Prototype: First experiences with the ”blue diode"
Georg Bach, Germany
Based on their market launch in 1995 within the scope of the IDS in Cologne, the diode lasers in dentistry experienced a development, which is to be described as ”more than turbulentÓ; with the result that today diode lasers are the most represented laser technology in dental offices and are used with great success primarily for soft tissue cuts and peri-implantitis and periodontitis therapy.
Er:YAG Laser and desensitizing effects on dentine and neck of tooth
Olaf Oberhofer, Germany
The aim of this clinical study is to compare the desensitizing effects on dentin and tooth neck of Dentin protector (Ivoclar Vivadent, Ellwangen, Germany), Duraphat (Colgate, Hamburg, Germany) and Er:YAG Laser(KEY III, KaVo, Biberach, Germany). In private dental offices the dentin hypersensitivity since years is a common cause of discomfort in patients. Around 7 % of the patients in the dental office of the author shows this problem. Reasons for dentin exposure are gingival recession following periodontal disease or periodontal therapy and trauma from tooth brushing (Schwarz 2002)...
