Authors: Nagano M, Kobayashi K, Yamada-Otani M, Kuzuya A, Matsumoto R, Oita J, Yoneda M, Ikeda A, Takahashi R Abstract Hashimoto's encephalopathy (HE) is a steroid-responsive autoimmune encephalopathy associated with Hashimoto thyroiditis. We herein report a case of HE manifesting "smoldering" limbic encephalitis with persisting symptoms and abnormalities on examinations. Although our patient experienced partial clinical remission after treatment, hippocampal hypermetabolism on [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) and subclinical seizures on video electroencephalography persiste...

Authors: Matoh U, Petelin M, Gašperšič R Abstract Collagen matrices (CMs) could be used instead of connective tissue grafts (CTGs) for treatment of gingival recession (GR). The authors aimed to compare clinical outcomes after treatment of isolated GR affecting both maxillary canines of 10 patients (n = 10) with CM (OsteoBiol Derma) or CTG in conjunction with coronally advanced flap. After 12 months, CM and CTG showed complete correction in 7/10 and 10/10 of sites, respectfully, and percentage of root coverage was 85% ± 24% and 100%, respectively. For treatment of isolated GR, CM is a viable al...

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of hydrofluoric (HF)-acid-etching time and the impact of a resin-cement layer on the biaxial flexural strength and structural reliability of a zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate (ZLS) glass ceramic. Disc-shaped specimens (n = 15) were divided according to: etching time (conditioning with 10% HF acid for 20, 40, and 60 seconds), and application of a resin-cement layer. Biaxial flexural, contact angle, and roughness analyses were performed. When the resin-cement layer was not present, flexural strength data increased with increasing etching times: 20 seconds = 250.8 MPa; 40 seconds =...

Authors: Tawil G, Tawil P Abstract Chronic periodontitis progression may go through phases of remission and exacerbation. The possibility of periodontal pathogens translocating from infected periodontal sites to peri-implant sites has been reported. Additionally, a history of periodontal disease seems to be a risk factor for peri-implantitis. The present case reports a flare-up of chronic periodontitis concomitant with an episode of peri-implant infection on a documented stable implant site. Periodontal infection was managed nonsurgically by scaling root planing and antibiotic treatment. Peri-implant infection was ...

Authors: Nevins M, Parma-Benfenati S, Gobbato L, Lombardi T, Stacchi C, Alves CC, Galletti P, Khang W, Kim DM Abstract Thirty-eight patients (aged 25 to 74) requesting extraction-socket and sinus augmentation procedures (27 and 11 patients, respectively) prior to implant placement volunteered to participate in this case series protocol. Surgical sites were grafted with either biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) + collagen (for extraction-socket augmentation) or BCP with a collagen barrier membrane (for maxillary sinus augmentation). All patients completed the 1-year postloading follow-up, which consisted of clinical a...

This article aims to evaluate and compare the 10-year bone anchorage and protrusion of implants into the sinus using cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) and periapical radiography. Implants (≤ 10 mm) were placed with osteotome sinus floor elevation (OSFE) without grafting in maxillae with bone height ≤ 8 mm. After 10 years, the CBCT analysis showed bone presence at the buccal and palatal implant sides and corroborated the results obtained using periapical radiographs. In the absence of any symptom or complication, the use of two-dimensional radiography is sufficient for routine long-term follow-up of implants af...

Authors: Ross B, Ross SB Abstract Gingival recession is a component of periodontal disease that leads to exposure of the root surface, root hypersensitivity, and esthetic concerns. Treatment of these cases is typically performed with autologous grafts harvested from the palate. However, this is associated with a second surgical site that increases surgical time and patient morbidity. A potential alternative is the use of cryopreserved umbilical-cord allografts, which are known to contain anti-inflammatory properties and have been used clinically by numerous medical specialties. In this observational series, three p...

This study aimed to histologically investigate the bone tissue response to zirconia implants functionalized with a biomimetic calcium phosphate (CaP) coating incorporated with bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2). Zirconia implants coated with biomimetic CaP were prepared with and without BMP-2. Untreated zirconia implants served as a control. These three groups of implants were placed randomly in the mandibles of six beagle dogs (n = 6). Three months later, samples were harvested for histomorphometric analysis. The present study showed that the application of a biomimetic CaP coating incorporated with BMP-2 enhanced the p...

Authors: De Angelis N, Kassim ZH, Frosecchi M, Signore A Abstract Keratinized tissue around implants is beneficial for soft tissue stability and esthetics. The aim of this investigation is to show the use of amnion/chorion membrane to increase the keratinized tissue. Fifteen patients were grafted with the allograft at the first or second stage of implant surgery. The mean values of keratinized tissue were 1.27 ± 0.46 mm, 2.00 ± 0.38 mm, 2.80 ± 0.78 mm, and 3.27 ± 0.80 mm at the initial evaluation and 7, 15, and 60 days postsurgery (prosthetic delivery was at day 60), respectively (P

Authors: Schneider D, Sancho-Puchades M, Schober F, Thoma D, Hämmerle C, Jung R Abstract This paper performed time and cost analyses and compared conventional vs computer-assisted implant planning and placement (CAIPP) protocols when placing single implants in partially edentulous patients. Partially edentulous patients were randomly allocated to one of three treatment groups: preoperative planning based on a conventional two-dimensional radiograph and free-hand implant placement (control [C], n = 26) or computer-assisted implant planning based on three-dimensional (3D) computer-tomography (test group 1 [T1], ...
