Basal Implants: An Asset for Rehabilitation of Atrophied Resorbed Maxillary and Mandibular Jaw - A Prospective Study.

Ann Maxillofac Surg 2021 Jan-Jun;11(1):64-69. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

Introduction: Conventional implants have great limitations in case of atrophic maxillary and mandibular ridges. Ultimately, patients who have severely atrophied jawbones paradoxically receive little or no treatment, as long as conventional implants are considered the device of first choice. Basal implants were developed with the goal to overcome the limitations of conventional implantology, primarily for atrophied ridges or inadequate bone with the protocol of immediate loading.

Consequences of Peri-Implant Bone Loss in the Occlusal Load Transfer to the Supporting Bone in terms of Magnitude of Stress, Strain, and Stress Distribution: A Finite Element Analysis.

Biomed Res Int 2021 1;2021:3087071. Epub 2021 Sep 1.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain.

Methods: Three models of a single internal connection bone level-type implant inserted into a posterior mandible bone section were constructed using a 3D finite element software: one control model without marginal bone loss and two test models, both with a circumferential peri-implant bone defect, one with a 3 mm high defect and the other one 6 mm high. A 150 N static load was tested on the central fossa at 6° relative to the axial axis of the implant.

Results: The results showed differences in the magnitude of strain and stress transferred to the bone between models, being the higher strain found in the trabecular bone around the implant with greater marginal bone loss. Read More

The Early Adhesion Effects of Human Gingival Fibroblasts on Bovine Serum Albumin Loaded Hydrogenated Titanium Nanotube Surface.

Molecules 2021 Aug 28;26(17). Epub 2021 Aug 28.

Laboratory of Biomaterials and Biomechanics, Beijing Key Laboratory of Tooth Regeneration and Function Reconstruction, School of Stomatology, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100050, China.

The soft tissue sealing at the transmucal portion of implants is vital for the long-term stability of implants. Hydrogenated titanium nanotubes (H-TNTs) as implant surface treatments were proved to promote the adhesion of human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs) and have broad usage as drug delivery systems. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) as the most abundant albumin in body fluid was crucial for cell adhesion and was demonstrated as a normal loading protein. Read More

Improving Free Gingival Graft Success Around Implants Using a Completed Implant Restoration.

Compend Contin Educ Dent 2021 Sep;42(8):452-458

Adjunct Clinical Professor and Director of Clinical Research, Ashman Department of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, New York University College of Dentistry, New York, New York; Private Practice, New York, New York.

Keratinized mucosa around implants is considered essential for maintaining peri-implant health. Clinicians may find it necessary to augment keratinized tissue after implant loading when complications arise. Immobilizing the graft can be challenging when there is a complete absence of attached gingiva or when the vestibule is shallow creating an opportunity for muscle forces to move the graft. Read More
