Immediate Placement and Provisionalization of Maxillary Incisors Implants in an Adolescent Patient: A Case Report

Vilma Umanzor, Mayra Pineda, Hugo Romero and Luis Gabriel Ladino

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 13, 2020

The evidence of implant-supported restoration on patients in physical development stages is scarce and controversial. The loss of permanent teeth in children and adolescents, usually caused by trauma or agenesis, can have a negative impact on aesthetics, function, and even social acceptance. The patient presented the need for replacement of both maxillary incisors due to increased mobility and recurrent infection. Cephalometric analysis, hand, and wrist radiographs were analyzed to identify the ...

L-PRF Associated With Bio-Oss® As an Optional Treatment for Radicular Cyst: Case Report

Amanda F Araujo and Lucas M Castro-Silva

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 21, 2020

In order to regenerate bone and soft tissue, multiples types of treatment were developed including the use of bone grafting, membranes and growth factor/cytokines/host modulating agent. Leukocyte-platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) is a second-generation platelet concentrate that forms a natural fibrin matrix with immune regulation node and inflammation retrocontrol proprieties, which can be useful in healing of apical defects. In the present case, bovine bone substitute graft was associated with L-PRF...

Ectopic wisdom teeth are a rare occurrence. Furthermore, it is highly unusual to see lower wisdom teeth in the ascending ramus of the mandible. This case report is about a 41-yearold male patient with right sided facial swelling. Presenting initially as suspected right sided parotitis, the source of the infection was quickly identified as an ectopic wisdom tooth located in the ramus of the mandible.

Multiple Mandibular Osteomas Not Associated with Gardner Syndrome: Case Report and Literature Review

Cristopher Mayer Olivares, Francisco Pampin L, Claudio Huentequeo M and Francisco Pinedo H

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 03, 2020

Osteomas are benign neoplasms that produce well-differentiated mature bone tissue. There are three clinical varieties: Central, peripheral, and extra-skeletal osteoma. In the craniofacial region, cases have been reported in different bones, with its location in the mandible being less prevalent, especially at the condylar level. Generally, they present in isolation, however, when their presentation is multiple, they can be associated with Gardner´s Syndrome. The presence of symptoms is rare, an...

Use of Surgical Guides for the Immediate Placement of Post-Extraction Implants

Nicolás Solano, Paulina Gutiérrez, Dalmiro Ortega and Salomon Ramos

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 09, 2020

Depending on the time that has elapsed since extraction, the placement of one or more implants in the maxilla or mandible will be determined directly by the clinical and radiographic characteristics of the implant bed. In the case of multirooted teeth, placing an implant immediately after extraction is more complex due to the anatomical sites involved. In the literature, there are very few studies reporting the use of 3D printed surgical guides for the placement of immediate post-extraction sing...

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: May 06, 2020

Blindness is a complication of midfacial trauma and the cause of it may be retrobulbar or intraorbital hematoma, which could be responsible for a direct or indirect damage to the optic nerve, traumatic loss or rupture of the orbital globe. In the international literature, the reported incidence of blindness subsequent to craniofacial injuries, particularly in orbito-frontal, orbito-naso-ethmoidal, zygomatico- orbital and Le Fort II and III fractures ranges from 1-5%....

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 30, 2020

Perineural invasion (PNI) refers to the infiltration of tumour cells into the perineural space of a nerve. It is predominately associated with cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCC). While PNI has a low level of incidence, it significantly affects the prognosis leading to a poorer outcome. We report a rare case of extensive PNI from a scalp cSCC in a Caucasian gentleman. The supraorbital, supratrochlear and optic nerves were involved requiring an orbital exenteration as part of the surgical m...

Article Type: Review article | First Published: January 10, 2020

Facial aesthetics has a meaningful relationship with the capacity of people to form interpersonal relationships, which can lead to cases of harassment when there are severe facial disharmonies. For a long time, orthognathic surgery has been indicated in patients whose growth has ended in order to achieve more stable and predictable results over time. However, there are cases where psychosocial stress due to dentofacial deformities makes necessary to intervene patients at a younger age. This revi...

Biomechanical Factors That Influence the Bone-Implant-Interface

Mohamed Darwish Elsayed

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 26, 2019

Osseointegration or osteointegration refers to a direct bone-to-metal interface without interposition of non-bone tissue. This concept has been described by Branemark, as consisting of a highly-differentiated tissue making "a direct structural and functional connection between ordered, living bone and the surface of a load-carrying implant. Through his initial observations on osseointegration, Branemark showed that titanium implants could become permanently incorporated within bone that is, the ...
