Blood platelet biomaterial enhances healing after dental implants - DentistryIQ

Blood platelet biomaterial enhances healing after dental implants - DentistryIQ | Dental Implants | Scoop.it

Source: Journal of Oral Implantology


Restoring the front teeth after a traumatic injury poses a particular challenge — biologically, functionally, and esthetically. Even when all the procedures of a successful implant are followed, healing of tissues can still be an unpredictable element. One approach to improving the outcome of this type of implant is the use of blood platelet concentrates.

Navident - ClaroNav | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
Digital dentistry is an ever evolving process; digital patient records, digital communication, digital x-rays, and most recently digital CBCT scans are becoming a part of everyday dental life. The incorporation of the CBCT into the workflow of the dentist provides the perfect opportunity to turn precise diagnostic information into surgical precision.
Murry Shohat's insight:

The positioning favoring CBCT is clear and confident. Every dentist should adjust their business plan to accept CBCT and digital treatment navigation as inevitable and clinically correct as the standard of care. ClaroNav is one of several approaches.

Legal Cases: Mandibular implant placement with resulting paresthesia

Legal Cases: Mandibular implant placement with resulting paresthesia | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
In their latest column, William S. Spiegel and Dr. Marc R. Leffler present a case from a general dentist's office. This dentist, experienced in implant placement and restoration, saw a 49-year old patient for a single implant. What happened during and after treatment is a cautionary tale.
Murry Shohat's insight:

These guys won't say it directly, but their post-case admonitions clearly call for 3D CBCT as the proper X-ray technology for treatment planning. For an illustration of this case, just look at the top left story on page 1, here.

LECTURE 1 - Dental Implant History

Cataraqui Woods Dental Implant Institute: This lecture is a part of a series of lectures provided as a service to the profession of dentistry.

Murry Shohat's insight:

If all the lectures in this series are as thorough as this 45-minute introductory module, 10 stars. This is University-level material designed for dental students. However, the rich, well-illustrated content might also appeal to patients who have deep concerns about their specific implant situation. I sure home the lecturer covers CBCT in some depth.

Tooth implant osseointegration too slow? Just suck a magnet...

Tooth implant osseointegration too slow? Just suck a magnet... | Dental Implants | Scoop.it

Dental surgeons have developed a revolutionary implant procedure using an electrical transmitter to speed up osseointegration (implant bonding with jawbone) before a new tooth crown can be fitted.

Murry Shohat's insight:

Although we don't see this as revolutionary since the technique is in use for other purposes, the development for accelerated osseointegration in jawbone is very notable.

The Evolution of Dental Implants - U.S. News & World Report

The Evolution of Dental Implants - U.S. News & World Report | Dental Implants | Scoop.it

For well over a thousand years, civilizations have attempted to solve the problem of tooth loss by implanting some type of "foreign material" into the jawbone. Archaeologists have discovered fragments of seashells and carved stones embedded in the jaws of ancient Mayans that date back to 600 A.D. In fact, in some instances these early implants proved to be "fused" to the bone!

Murry Shohat's insight:

One of the better reviews of the current state of the dental implant market. Two bones to pick with dentist-author: no mention of the need for CBCT in treatment planning; and too optimistic view of "all-on-four" technology and its mini-implant underpinning.

For a predictable outcome, a dental implant should be placed as soon as the bone and gum tissues following a tooth extraction have healed. But what happens if the tooth has been missing for months or years?
Murry Shohat's insight:


Good points here. The longer a patient waits to replace a missing tooth, the less bone will be available.
