Postsurgical Dental and Periodontal Conslderatlons

Postsurgical Dental and Periodontal Conslderatlons . The patient should be seen for a maintenance dental and periodontal evaluation approximately 10 to 1-1 weeks postoperatively. The mucoglngtvat status is reevaluated, the mouth deplaqued, and areas of inflamma’tion or pocketing lightly instrumented. ‘frequent recall maintenance should continue during the remainder of orthodontic care when necessa

Postsurgical Restorative and Prosthetic Considerations

Postsurgical Restorative and Prosthetic Considerations ‘When patients require cornplex final restorative treatment, it is important to establish stable, full-arch contact as soon after orthodontic debanding as possible. Posterior vertical . contacts are important in patients who have only anterior components of occlusion remaining. \Vell-fjttin~, temporary. removable partial dentures may suffice, and the

Extraoral Implants

Extraoral Implants Recognizing the success of implants for oral applications. maxillofacial prosthodontlsts and surgeons have expanded  use of titanium fixtures to extraoral application. Extraoral implants are now used to anchor prosthetic ears, eyes, and noses for patients with defects resulting from congenital conditions, trauma, or pathology

Early Loading

Early Loading have been efforts to define the minimum time required for osseointegration. Generally accepted integration times • are based on experience and tradition with little experimental data. Researchcontinues to attempt to define ideal minimum integration times. Factors that are likely important in determining what these minimum times should be   include: bone quality, implant.material, and surface

Implants in ‘Irradiated Bone

Implants in ‘Irradiated Bone Ca~cer patients frequentiy suffe~’ from surgery- and irradtatton-assoclated soft and hard tissue defects that signlficaritly compromise conventional prosthodontlc rehabilitation. “An implant-supported prosthesis’ could improve function and esthetics: however, concern regarding the compromised wound healing that results after .turnoricidal irradiation to the

Atrophic Maxilla

Atrophic Maxilla Initial implant restorative approaches for the fully edentulous maxilla concentrated on implant placement in the anterior- region, simllar to the edentulous mandible. However, the resulting prosthesis was often unsatisfactonry, If adequate space was allowed for proper hygiene, phonetics and esthetics were severely compromised, If the prosthesis was developed in such a way as to eliminate these,

Atrophic Anterior Mandible

Atrophic Anterior Mandible In the atrophic mandible (l.e., less than ‘8 mm of vertical height), the shortest implant may be longer’ than the available bone. Implants may be placed by purposefully perforating the inferior cortex. This’ may decrease the crown-to-root ratio or increase th, risk of “fracture .’ Recent studies have shown that afte. restoration ‘ofthe. atrophic m

Anterior Maxilla Esthetic Zone

Anterior Maxilla Esthetic Zone In the esthetic zone of the anterior maxilla, successful integration alone is not adequate. The implant must have proper position, angulation, and depth for esthetic restoration. These parameters are prosthodontically determined and communicated to the surgeon by the surgical stent. TIie stent must show the ideal position; labial thickness of porcelain and metal; and locationR
