Implant treatment of two failing or missing central incisors in the aesthetic region: a treatment protocol and 1-year prospective study.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands; Department of Implant Dentistry, Dental School, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Implant treatment for two central incisors in the maxillary aesthetic region is complex due to concerns regarding inter-implant hard and soft tissue stability. A treatment protocol was therefore developed and implemented in a 1-year prospective case series study involving 16 patients with two failing or missing central incisors in the maxillary aesthetic region. The protocol consists of five options depending on whether teeth are still present (options 1-3) or not (options 4 and 5) and on the amount of bone available at the start of treatment: (1) extraction followed by immediate implant placement and provisionalization, (2) extraction followed by immediate implant placement and delayed provisionalization, (3) extraction followed by ridge preservation, delayed implant placement and immediate provisionalization, (4) delayed implant placement and guided bone regeneration with delayed provisionalization, (5) guided bone regeneration (extensive bone augmentation of the alveolar ridge), delayed implant placement, and delayed provisionalization.

Influence of the anatomical form of the posterior maxilla on the reliability of superior maxillary repositioning by Le Fort I osteotomy.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Certain patients with facial deformities require superior repositioning of the maxilla via Le Fort I osteotomy; however, the magnitude of superior repositioning of the maxilla is often less than expected. In this study, the correlation between the accuracy of superior repositioning of the maxilla and the anatomical form of the maxillary posterior region was examined. Seventy-five patients who underwent Le Fort I osteotomy without forward movement of the maxilla but with superior repositioning of the maxilla were included in this study. Read More
