Use of osseointegrated implants in the intermaxillary suture: a new possibility for the prosthetic rehabilitation of atrophic maxillae

Jan 24, 2018 by in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Comments Off on Use of osseointegrated implants in the intermaxillary suture: a new possibility for the prosthetic rehabilitation of atrophic maxillae

Abstract Patients with atrophy of the maxillae, generally the elderly, are usually difficult to handle clinically, mainly due to the lack of retention, stability, and masticatory effectiveness of the total…

A lower border augmentation technique to allow implant placement after a bilateral mandibular fracture as a complication of vertical distraction osteogenesis: a case report

Jan 24, 2018 by in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Comments Off on A lower border augmentation technique to allow implant placement after a bilateral mandibular fracture as a complication of vertical distraction osteogenesis: a case report

Abstract As with other techniques, vertical distraction osteogenesis (VDO) can also induce complications. The case of a patient with a residual alveolar ridge in the symphyseal area of 8 mm…

Is it possible to improve the accuracy of implants inserted with a stereolithographic surgical guide by reducing the tolerance between mechanical components?

Jan 24, 2018 by in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Comments Off on Is it possible to improve the accuracy of implants inserted with a stereolithographic surgical guide by reducing the tolerance between mechanical components?

Abstract When using a stereolithographic surgical guide, a potentially clinically relevant error may be the mechanical error caused by the bur guide cylinder gap due to the presence of a…

Conservation of salivary secretion and facial nerve function in partial superficial parotidectomy

Jan 24, 2018 by in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Comments Off on Conservation of salivary secretion and facial nerve function in partial superficial parotidectomy

Abstract Conventional total superficial parotidectomy (TP) has commonly been used, but partial superficial parotidectomy (PP) offers the possibility of better preserving glandular function and avoiding palsy of the facial nerves….
