Baseball bat hits teeth : Teeth lose out

By Dr. Peter Hunt

While trying to collect the rent, this patient was attacked with a baseball bat. Three maxillary anterior teeth were damaged, two so severely that they needed to be extracted. The challenge became one of how to proceed in therapy. To avoid extensive bone loss in the region, implant therapy with large scale bone augmentation was instituted as soon as possible

Densification for ridge expansion

By Dr. Maurizio Ciocci

A novel range of burs mostly running in reverse have the ability to expand and at the same time “Densify” an implant channel. This case with resorbed maxillary ridges would have been impossible to manage with most single-stage procedures. But with a modest change of technology and procedure it was relatively simple to place implants within the newly expanded ridges

Densification with socket regeneration and sinus lifting for ridge recovery

By Dr. Maurizio Ciocci

Removal of teeth with advanced periodontal breakdown can leave an alveolus with severe deformities. Traditionally in healing following tooth removal, these ridges have been allowed to collapse before considering placing implants. This case shows where osseodensification, sinus lifting, implant placement and ridge regeneration are used to prevent ridge collapse and to provide functional supports for restorative therapy.

Treating Occlusal Breakdown

By Dr. Peter Hunt

The patient was referred by a periodontist and the general dentist. They were losing control of the case. Everything was failing and falling to bits. What was necessary was to re-think and re-evaluate the whole case. Essentially, this was a Bite Collapse case with failure of the remaining natural dentiton, complicated by failure of the implants that had recently been placed.

Treatment considerations in managing occlusal breakdown

By Dr. Peter Hunt

Bite collapse is a syndrome with many aspects, periodontal breakdown, occlusal trauma, migration of teeth, decrease of Occlusal Vertical Dimension, and various forms of malfunction. This case has it all and required a comprehensive approach to improve aesthetics and function.

Intra Oral Scan technology becomes realistic

By Dr. Peter Hunt

Scanbodies + Intra Oral Scan technologies are starting to rival Traditional Implant impression techniques. While patients greatly prefer IOS to conventional procedures, the workflow can be challenging and difficult to set up, especially for implant therapy. However, once established then the clinical and laboratory processes can go very smoothly.

Transitioning from failing blade vent and sub-periosteal implants to a reconstruction supported on modern implants

By Dr. Peter Hunt

Implantology has changed a lot over the years, from Blade-Vent and Sub-Periosteal implants to tapered cylindrical implants which osseo-integrate. Design principles and materials have changed dramatically as have mode of construction and materials for full-arch cases. Modern implantology is simpler, more biologically oriented, more successful and more satisfying for both patients and care providers.

Transitioning some implants and many teeth

By Dr. Peter Hunt

A patient was referred for reconstructive therapy. The situation was made more difficult at the outset by some implants which were malpositioned and failing. These were removed by counter-torquing and then immediately replaced with new implants set in a more suitable position. Considerable bone augmentation was required and provided.
