Abstract

Introduction

Placement of endosseous plateau implants represents a valid treatment in the setting of limited alveolar bone height. This study's objectives were to evaluate the effect of submerging and platform switching on crestal bone loss and redistribution of occlusal forces, the advantage of plateau design in providing more surface area for osseointegration, and the outcome of autogenous bone grafting from the implant osteotomy site as an alternate to exogenous bone graft.

Materials and methods

A prospective study of 10 patients with mandibular posterior edentulism was selected. Preoperative alveolar bone height (mean 11.87 mm) and width (8.22 mm) were measured on cone beam computed tomography. Two-staged implants were placed with 2.0 mm of submergence, which remained below the alveolar crest. The distribution of site according to bone quality and implant dimension was D2. Patients were followed up after 7 days for pain, infection, soft tissue dehiscence, and paresthesia followed by an average period of 1 year and evaluated for bone gain over implant shoulder, crestal bone loss, and peri-implant radiolucency.

Results

One-year postloading survival rates for submerged plateau implants was 100.0% in D2 bone, with no peri-implant radiolucency and statistically insignificant (~0–0.8 mm) crestal bone loss.

Conclusion

Submerged plateau implants have excellent survival rates and crestal bone level maintenance. The results of this study support the hypothesis that plateau implants can be successfully used in mandibular areas with limited bone height.

Comparative Evaluation of Clinical and Radiological Outcomes of Immediate and Delayed Dental Implant Rehabilitation: A Prospective Study

Abstract

Introduction

The original implant surgical protocol proposed by Bran Mark et al involves open flap access, stepwise osteotomy of the bony ridge, and implant placement followed by good primary closure.

Objectives

To compare the radiographic marginal bone loss, pocket depth, clinical outcome associated with immediate and delayed implants, and success rates 2 years after the placement of implants.

Materials and methods

Totally 62 dental implants were placed in 42 patients. They were randomly selected to the immediate or delayed group. Among those selected, 30 were immediate implants and 32 were delayed implants. The width and depth of marginal bone defects around the implants were measured clinically just after placement and 3 months later at the abutment surgery. Bone healing and marginal bone changes were evaluated radiographically and clinical parameters evaluated were pocket depth, local infection, altered sensation, soft tissue dehiscence, pus discharge, implant mobility, and patient's satisfaction. All the collected data were subjected to statistical analysis using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 17 software. Statistical analysis was done using Z test.

Results

The results revealed that there was a significant difference in pocket depth and crestal bone loss in both groups. Mean pocket depth in immediate group was 3.285 mm and mean pocket depth in delayed group was 3.523 mm at 1 year. There were minimal crestal bone losses in the immediate group as compared with delayed implant group at 1-year follow-up. Also, there were reduced complications, such as local infection, altered sensation, soft tissue dehiscence, and pus discharge in immediate implant placement group and resulted in patient's satisfaction.

We conclude that the immediate dental implant placement is significantly superior over the delayed implant placement.

Mini-implant supported Orthodontic Molar Intrusion: An Unconventional Approach for Pre-implant Prosthetics

Abstract

Aim

To demonstrate two cases in which mini-implant-supported orthodontic molar intrusion has been performed to regain ideal crown height space (CHS) for implant prosthesis.

Background

Tooth loss is associated with esthetic, functional, and psychological consequences on an individual. Replacement of missing teeth by dental implants has gained significant importance due to promising advantages of implants over conventional prosthesis. Edentulism often results in supra-eruption of antagonistic teeth into the edentulous site, resulting in reduced vertical dimension for tooth replacement, posing a restorative challenge for clinicians. Hence, it is necessary to regain the lost vertical dimension prior to the implant prosthesis, either conventionally by endodontic and prosthetic intervention or by orthodontic intrusion with the aid of temporary anchorage devices (TADs). Mini-implants are a category of TADs that provide a minimally invasive technique for molar intrusion.

Case report

Two patients with missing mandibular molars desiring tooth replacement presented with supra-eruption of antagonist teeth, posing a difficulty during prosthetic treatment. Orthodontic intrusion using mini-implants was performed to regain the lost vertical space simultaneously along with dental implant placement followed by prosthetic rehabilitation.

Conclusion

The present twin case report demonstrates the successful role of mini-implants in orthodontic molar intrusion for establishing an ideal CHS for implant prosthesis to reestablish masticatory function.

Clinical significance

The twin case report demonstrates mini-implant-supported orthodontic molar intrusion as a replacement for conventional gross tooth reduction, for regaining the lost vertical space in cases of supra-eruption of maxillary molar associated with edentulism.
