Healed Edentulous Sites: Suitability for Dental Implant Placement, Need for Secondary Procedures, and Contemporary Implant Designs.
CONCLUSION: The study indicates that implants can be placed in slightly over half of edentulous sites without a secondary grafting procedure. The possibility of dental implant placement varied according to the volume and morphology of alveolar bone and related anatomical structures. This decreased from anterior to posterior in both arches. The sloped implant design was beneficial. In addition, the sloped implant design resulted in the placement of a longer implant.

Influence of Bone Anatomy on Implant Placement Procedures in Edentulous Arches of Elderly Individuals: A Cross-Sectional Study on Computed Tomography Images.
CONCLUSION: Most edentulous elderly patients show some degree of alveolar bone atrophy. It is often feasible to insert implants in the anterior mandible to support a restoration. In most maxillary cases, alveolar atrophy calls for augmentation procedures in both the anterior and posterior areas. In elderly individuals, the anterior maxilla often shows bone deficiency interfering with simple implant placement procedures, thus also limiting the use of tilted implants.

Accuracy and Deviation Analysis of Static and Robotic Guided Implant Surgery: A Case Study.
Authors: Mozer PS Abstract Guided dental implant surgery can optimize implant placement positioning, increase predictability, and decrease surgical invasiveness through flapless techniques. Static surgical guides have been used to accomplish this task, though limitations of patient opening and lack of coolant contact with the surgical site have been clinically significant weaknesses. Technologic advances have allowed robotically guided implant placement using haptic guidance. The absence of a static stereolithographic guide over the surgical area allows for optimal access and adequate cooling during osteotomies. Th...

Harnessing Omics Sciences and Biotechnologies in Understanding Osseointegration- Personalized Dental Implant Therapy.
Authors: Refai AK, Cochran DL Abstract A number of significant advances (omics and bioengineering) now enable seamless stratification of patients according to their individual genotypes. This allows for more precise diagnoses coupled with patient phenotypes and improved treatment planning and predictable outcomes. Collectively, these advances are designated as "personalized dental medicine." To become an essential part of personalized dental medicine, this term will have a robust impact on dental implant practice. This narrative review elucidates the importance of utilizing advanced bioengineering techniq...

Resistance to Fracture in Fixed Dental Prostheses Over Cemented and Screw-Retained Implant-Supported Zirconia Cantilevers in the Anterior Region: An In Vitro Study.
Authors: Rues S, Kappel S, Ruckes D, Rammelsberg P, Zenthöfer A Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the resistance to fracture in cantilevered fixed dental prostheses (cFDPs) of single implant-supported zirconia cantilevers in the anterior region. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-two cemented and solely screw-retained cFDPs consisting of an implant-supported crown replacing the central incisor and an attached cantilever unit in the position of the lateral incisor in the maxilla were constructed by computer-aided design (CAD) and machined by computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). For the cemented solution, a cFDP was d...
