5-7] The recent position paper on the use of radiology in dental implantology put forward by the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR) recommended that cross-sectional imaging be used for the assessment of all dental implant sites
and that currently CBCT is the imaging method of choice at present to gain this diagnostic information.
The current study was planned to evaluate the osseointegration degree and biomechanical properties of implants with alumina-blasted surface at oversized implant sites
Pathogenesis of orthopedic implant site
infections involves interaction between the host, the implant and the microorganisms.
Direct visualization of the implant site
and soft tissue height after surgical incision may also affect the planned implant dimensions, because the implant may have to be inserted more deeply or superficially to achieve better esthetic results.
In the buccallingual dimension, an immediate implant site
should possess a minimum bone measurement of 4 mm, and the individual plates should be thick enough to engage the implant without undue stress.
It also includes descriptions of piezosurgery techniques, its advantages over traditional techniques and instruments, and introduces a new technique for ultrasonic implant site
preparation and orthodontic microsurgery.
A potential weakness shown in the second study is that bone thickness at the experimental implant site
must be carefully considered, shown by the number of fractures when the tapered MTT implant was placed in the tibia instead of the more robust femur.
Soon after implant surgery the patient developed a bacterial infection at the implant site
, requiring ulterior implant removal and treatment.
Special Considerations: Implant site
bruising, pain, soreness, erythema, and swelling were the most commonly reported adverse events in two studies.
In rodents DU was shown to migrate from the implant site
to bone, kidney, muscle, and liver tissue; to alter the hippocampus; to cross the placental barrier; and to enter fetal tissue.
Data was used to create virtual models of the soft head tissue, the healthy ear and the bone structure at the implant site
Polymeric nitric oxide release represents a unique strategy, particularly since nitric oxide has a short half-life in blood -- just a few seconds -- and thus would only have an effect on areas near the implant site
where it is needed most.
Nearly a third of the original 155 patients had complications requiring surgical intervention to adjust the device, most often pain at the neurostimulator site or implant site
In some cases, one or more of the capsules have migrated from the original implant site
, making retrieval extremely difficult.
The Nanostim approach is designed to improve patient comfort by giving the physician a simplified, less-invasive option, permitting implantation as an outpatient, eliminating the visible lump and scar at a conventional pacemaker's pectoral implant site
, and removing the need for activity restrictions to prevent dislodgement after implantation of a conventional lead.
