Ultrasonography for noninvasive and real-time evaluation of peri-implant soft and hard tissue: a case series.

Int J Implant Dent 2021 Sep 14;7(1):95. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Department of Prosthetic Dentistry, School of Dental Medicine, Philipps-University Marburg, Georg-Voigt Str. 3, 35039, Marburg/Lahn, Germany.

Background: The diagnosis of soft and hard tissue at dental implants will be challenging in the future, as high prevalence of mucositis and peri-implantitis were described in the population. Ultrasonography is a promising non-invasive, inexpensive, painless, and radiation-free method for imaging hard and soft tissue at implants, especially an ultrasound device with a 25-MHz probe demonstrating a high correlation between ultrasound, clinical, and radiological measurements.

Case Presentation: The following case series demonstrates the use of ultrasonography with high spatial resolution probe in patients with dental implants affected by soft tissue recession and/or crestal bone loss. Read More

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

Programmed core-shell electrospun nanofibers to sequentially regulate osteogenesis-osteoclastogenesis balance for promoting immediate implant osseointegration.

Acta Biomater 2021 Sep 4. Epub 2021 Sep 4.

State Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases, National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, West China Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University, Chengdu, 610041, P. R. China.. Electronic address:

The biology of immediate post-extraction implant osseointegration is mediated by a coordinated cascade of osteoblast-osteoclast interactions. The aim of this study was to develop a dual-delivery system that allowed sequential release of substance P (SP) to promote bone regeneration and alendronate (ALN) to reduce bone resorption, which will improve the implant osseointegration. We used coaxial electrospinning to fabricate the core-shell poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA)/gelatin nanofibers, which consists of SP in the shell and ALN in the core. Read More

Cell Wall Biosynthesis Modulates Bone Invasion and Osteomyelitis Pathogenesis.

Front Microbiol 2021 16;12:723498. Epub 2021 Aug 16.

Center for Musculoskeletal Research, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, United States.

invasion of the osteocyte lacuno-canalicular network (OLCN) is a novel mechanism of bacterial persistence and immune evasion in chronic osteomyelitis. Previous work highlighted cell wall transpeptidase, penicillin binding protein 4 (PBP4), and surface adhesin, surface protein C (SasC), as critical factors for bacterial deformation and propagation through nanopores , representative of the confined canaliculi . Given these findings, we hypothesized that cell wall synthesis machinery and surface adhesins enable durotaxis- and haptotaxis-guided invasion of the OLCN, respectively. Read More

Bacteria co-culture adhesion on different texturized zirconia surfaces.

J Mech Behav Biomed Mater 2021 Nov 17;123:104786. Epub 2021 Aug 17.

CMEMS - Center for MicroElectroMechanical Systems, University of Minho, Portugal.

Zirconia is becoming reckoned as a promising solution for different applications, in particular those within the dental implant investigation field. It has been proved to successfully overcome important limitations of the commonly used titanium implants. The adhesion of microorganisms to the implants, in particular of bacteria, may govern the success or the failure of a dental implant, as the accumulation of bacteria on the peri-implant bone may rapidly evolve into periodontitis.

Bone Ingrowth Around an Uncemented Femoral Implant Using Mechanoregulatory Algorithm: A Multiscale Finite Element Analysis.

J Biomech Eng 2021 Aug 23. Epub 2021 Aug 23.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, Kharagpur 721 302, West Bengal, India.

The primary fixation and long-term stability of a cementless femoral implant depend on bone ingrowth within the porous coating. Although attempts were made to quantify the peri-implant bone ingrowth using the finite element (FE) analysis and mechanoregulatory principles, the tissue differentiation patterns on a porous-coated hip stem have scarcely been investigated. The objective of this study is to predict the spatial distribution of evolutionary bone ingrowth around an uncemented hip stem, using a 3D multiscale mechanobiology based numerical framework.

Effect of customized healing abutments on the peri-implant linear and volumetric tissue changes at maxillary immediate implant sites: A 1-year prospective randomized clinical trial.

Clin Implant Dent Relat Res 2021 Aug 22. Epub 2021 Aug 22.

Faculty of Dental Medicine, Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Health, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Viseu, Portugal.

Background: Immediate implant placement (IIP) associated with the use of bone substitutes and collagen matrices (CM) seems to reduce the amount of resorption at peri-implant areas. Recently, customized healing abutments (CA) appeared as another solution in order to seal the socket and preserve the original soft tissue contour.

Purpose: To evaluate peri-implant tissues dimensional changes after using customized healing abutments compared with the use of xenogeneic collagen matrices as socket sealing options in flapless maxillary immediate implant placement. Read More
