The primary objective of this pilot study was to evaluate a new socket preservation technique involving the intentional expansion of the extraction socket buccal plate using a flapless internal corticotomy and biomaterials. A total of 11 patients requiring tooth extraction were enrolled in this study. The aim of this technique was to maintain or improve the hard and soft tissue contour of the ridge after tooth extraction. All surgical sites healed uneventfully. Significant alveolar bone dimension changes were observed in the coronal region of the ridge (-1.4 ± 0.9 mm); however, it was only slightly lower at the medium (-0.35 ± 0.7 mm) and apical levels (-0.3 ± 0.8 mm) (P > .05). The ridge dimensional changes were significantly higher in the buccal aspect than in the palatal aspect in all patients. Vertical bone resorption was not significant. Concerning the soft tissue contour, the horizontal distance between the preoperative and postoperative buccal profiles ranged from 0.94 to -2.88 mm. The proposed ridge preservation technique may help maintain the volume of the healed ridge but cannot completely prevent contour changes after tooth extraction. [less ▲]

Abstract Aims: The objective of this study was to assess prospectively the outcomes of extra-narrow diameter implants (XNDI) placed in teenage patients as a temporary restorative option. Material and Methods: Twenty consecutive young patients presenting one or several missing teeth received XNDI that were immediately restored with composite, Polymethylmethacrylate (Acrylic) or ceramic crown. Clinical and radiographical outcomes were assessed for a minimum follow-up period of 1 year. Additionally, each patient completed retrospectively a satisfaction questionnaire using Visual Analog Scale (VAS). Results: A total of 30 implants were placed and followed for a period of 1–7.4 years (mean: 3.59 years). One implant failed after 3 weeks and was replaced successfully. No further biological complications occurred during the follow-up period, leading to an implant survival rate of 96.6%. The patient satisfaction evaluations displayed high levels of comfort and function. Conclusion: Immediately restored XNDI to replace missing teeth on teenager patients seems to be an effective temporary restorative option to replace missing teeth in young patients. Composite or ceramic crowns should be preferred. Clinical trials with long-term follow-ups and the assessment of passive egression are needed. [less ▲]

AIMS : This randomized controlled trial aimed to evaluate the benefits and clinical outcomes of piezocision, which is a minimally invasive approach to corticotomy that is used in orthodontic treatments. MATERIALS AND METHODS : Twenty-four adult patients presenting with mild overcrowdings were randomly allocated to either a control group that was treated with conventional orthodontics or a test group that received piezo-assisted orthodontics. The piezocisions were performed 1 wk week after the placement of the orthodontic appliances. Neither grafting material nor sutures were used. All patients were followed every 2 wk, and archwires were changed only when they were no longer active. The periods required for the completion of the overall orthodontic treatments were calculated, and the periodontal parameters were evaluated at baseline and at the end of the orthodontic treatment. Patient-centered outcomes were assessed with a visual analog scale; analgesic use following the procedures was also recorded. RESULTS : The patient characteristics were similar between the 2 groups. The overall treatment time was significantly reduced by 43% in the piezocision group as compared with the control group. In both groups, periodontal parameters (i.e., recession depth, pocket depth, plaque index, and papilla bleeding index) remained unchanged between the baseline and treatment completion time points. No increase in root resorption was observed in either group. Scars were observed in 50% of the patients in the piezocision group. Analgesic consumption was similar following orthodontic appliance placement and piezocision surgery. Patient satisfaction was significantly better in the piezocision group than in the control group. CONCLUSION : In these conditions, the piezocision technique seemed to be effective in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement. No gingival recessions were observed. The risk of residual scars might limit the indications for piezocision in patients with a high smile line (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02590835) [less ▲]

Narrow diameter implants (NDIs) are increasingly produced and used in implant dentistry especially since the introduction of new and more resistant materials. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the clinical performance of NDIs (3.3 mm) placed in thin alveolar crests. Methods: Twenty consecutive patients needing implant-supported fixed partial dentures and presenting an alveolar thickness ≤ 6 mm were treated with one or several NDIs. The surgical protocol was chosen according to the clinical situation: °1 flapless; °2 mini-cervical flap; 3° wide flap; 4° wide flap + guided bone regeneration (GBR). Implants were immediately loaded if the primary stability was higher than 20 Ncm. Implant survival and success, prosthodontic success rates and patient-centered outcomes were evaluated after a follow-up period of 1 year. Results: A total of 39 implants were placed in 20 patients, 12 and 27 implants in the anterior regions and in the posterior mandible, respectively. All implants but one reached an insertion torque higher than 20 Ncm and were loaded within 48 hours. The implant survival and success rates both reached 94.7 %. The need for GBR was avoided in 60 % of the implant sites. The mean peri-implant bone remodeling after a follow-up period of 1 year was -0.35 mm at the implant level. Peri-implant bone remodeling was higher in the posterior region, when the alveolar crest was thinner than 4 mm and GBR was required in addition.Conclusion: The use of NDIs to restore partial edentation in sites with limited horizontal bone thickness seems to be an effective treatment option that prevented GBR in the majority of the present cases. Immediate provisionalization of NDIs does not seem to impair the results. [less ▲]

AIM: The objective of this study was to compare two different periodontal plastic surgery procedures to treat Miller's class I recession: a coronally advanced flap (control group) versus the pouch technique (test group), both of which were associated with connective tissue graft. METHODS: Forty consecutive patients were included, with 20 patients being allocated for each group. The level of recession coverage, the keratinized tissue (KT) quantity, gingival aesthetics (PES) and post-operative outcomes were assessed for a follow-up period of 6 months. RESULTS: After 6 months, both techniques allowed for the excellent mean root coverage of 96.3 ± 12.1% in the control group and of 91.3 ± 17.6% in the test group. Complete root coverage was achieved in 89.5% (17/19) and 79% (15/19) of the recession cases in the control and the test groups respectively. A significant increase in KT height (p = 0.0011) was observed in the test group. A significant improvement in the pink aesthetic score was found in the two groups, but gingival texture displayed significantly better results in the test group (p < 0.0001). No significant difference between the two groups was found in terms of the morbidity outcomes. Pain killer consumption was similar in the two groups and significantly decreased over time. CONCLUSIONS: Both surgical techniques are relevant in treating Miller's class I recession. The pouch technique seems to increase the height of KT better and provides good gingival-related aesthetic outcomes. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND Osteoporosis affects millions of elderly patients. Bisphosphonates represent first-line therapy. Osteonecrosis of the jaws in patients treated with bisphosphonates is mostly associated with intravenous bisphosphonates while the incidence associated with oral bisphosphonates is not significant. AIM This report documents a case of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) after dental implant removal in an osteoporotic patient treated with alendronate and risedronate for 15 years. MATERIAL AND METHODS An 83-years-old patient with no significant systemic disease underwent implant removal in the first molar left hemimandible position in 2010 due to a peri-implantitis. The surgical procedure was uneventful thought preventive measures were no taken. In June 2011, the patient was referred to our department with a wide bone sequestration of the left mandibular body. A panoramic radiograph showed an increased bone marrow density with bone sequestration. Since then, the patient underwent several courses of antibiotics and conservative therapy, without relief of symptoms. RESULTS Since 2011, the patient has lost 13 teeth in the mandible and the osteonecrosis has disseminated to the entire jaw and the left mandible condyle. The patient has even lost the left hearing. Resective surgery under general anesthesia is not indicated due to the risk because of the age of the patient. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS Despite the low risk of BRONJ occurrence after implant surgery in oral N-BP users, the fate of dental implants in these patients remains uncertain. Therefore patients at risk must be given a full explanation of the potential risks of implant failure and BRONJ development. Osteonecrosis of the jaws in association with bisphosphonate therapy is a very serious condition with which all dentists should be familiar. Since the treatment of BRONJ is difficult, prevention is the main goal. When the osteonecrosis begins, it can be very painful to the patient, difficult to treat, and can lead to very deleterious sequelae. [less ▲]
