Multidisciplinary care: Utilization of the implant portfolio

Introduction Patient-centered treatments are at the core of how we approach treating our patients, and with developments in technology there are viable alternatives to major augmentation. In implant-supported reconstructions, if we have the ability to avoid large invasive procedures without compromising biological principles while minimizing morbidity, then this modality can

Fact or Myth: Esthetics in Implant Dentistry

Restoring function and esthetics using titanium or ceramic implants are arguably the two main goals of dental implant therapy. While assessing osseointegration is relatively straightforward in daily clinical practice by tapping on implants or using more sophisticated methods such as applying ISQ values, measuring esthetics, however, is much more complicated.

Socket sealing strategies for alveolar ridge preservation

Background and objective After tooth extraction, a remodeling process takes place in the alveolar socket, leading to volumetric changes that reduce bone availability for further dental implant placement. Why do dimensional alterations happen after tooth removal? Briefly, the periodontal ligament is lost during the alveolar healing process, which consequently affects

Long-term success rate of mandibular locator implant-retained overdentures: How do we ensure predictable results?

Introduction Fully edentulous patients with severely resorbed ridges and unfavorable jaw relations often encounter difficulties with their conventional denture due to an impaired load-bearing capability, especially in the lower arch. Implant-retained overdentures (IODs) were proposed as an effective treatment for rehabilitating such patients to restore both function and esthetics and
