May 31st, 2012 - A Position Paper Subcommittee of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR) reviewed the literature since the original position statement on selection criteria for radiology in dental implantology, published in 2000. All current planar modalities, including intraoral, panoramic, and cephalometric, as well as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) are discussed, along with ra.
Nov 8th, 2011 - Dry mouth (xerostomia) can change speech patterns, allow dentures to rub, and contribute to dental caries. It also changes dietary preferences: who wants to eat peanut butter or saltines with a dry mouth? It may alter the sufferer’s nutritional status, causing vitamin deficiencies and caloric insufficiency—once salivary flow is reduced by half, chewing and swallowing become problematic.

Aug 27th, 2011 - Background: The aim of this study was to examine the symptoms and risk factors associated with self‐reported xerostomia. Methods: Data were collected from 601 self‐administered questionnaires among dental clinic attendees. Logistic regression models to estimate odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals were used to investigate the association for exposures of interest, such as socio‐demograph...

Sep 24th, 2015 - Limited evidence is available for applying dental implants in Sjögren's syndrome (SS) patients. This study aims to retrospectively assess clinical outcome of implant therapy in a cohort of well-classified patients with SS. All SS patients attending the University Medical Center Groningen for follow-up (n = 406) were asked whether they had implants. In SS patients with implants peri-implant heal...

Aug 11th, 2015 - Mucosal CD30-positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (CD30+ T-cell LPD) is a novel entity with unique clinicopathological features and an indolent behavior. Here we report the first case of mucosal CD30+ T-cell LPD arising in the oral cavity following dental implant. A 70-year-old woman presented with swelling and redness of the oral mucosa of right maxilla and left mandible surrounding de...

Nov 18th, 2013 - The Vanderbilt Head and Neck Symptom Survey (VHNSS) version 2.0 oral symptom subscale addresses underreported oral health issues. We report the associations of xerostomia, dental health, dentures and trismus questions with oral examination findings. Between May 2011 and April 2012, fifty head and neck cancer (HNC) patients treated with chemoradiotherapy completed the 50-item VHNSS survey, an or...

May 17th, 2011 - Although dental implants have seen tremendous clinical success over the past few decades, there are some worrying reports in literature describing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in close association with dental implants. This article also provides a critical assessment of the published literature relating to the presence of carcinoma in association with dental implants, analyzing the previously ...

May 11th, 2011 - Numb chin syndrome, sometimes called numb lip syndrome, is an uncommon but well-recognized symptom in medical oncology. It may be a metastatic neurologic manifestation of malignancy, often with no clinically visible pathologic finding. The authors report a numb chin syndrome as a manifestation possible breast cancer metastasis around dental implants in a 69-year-old woman. The patient was prese...

Jul 5th, 2010 - Candidiasis, an often encountered oral disease, has been increasing in frequency. Most commonly caused by the overgrowth of Candida albicans, oral candidiasis can be divided into several categories including acute and chronic forms, and angular cheilitis. Risk factors for the development of oral candidiasis include immunosuppression, wearing of dentures, pharmacotherapeutics, smoking, infancy a...

Dec 3rd, 2009 - To evaluate whether systemic diseases with/without systemic medication increase the risk of implant failure and therefore diminish success and survival rates of dental implants. A MEDLINE search was undertaken to find human studies reporting implant survival in subjects treated with osseointegrated dental implants who were diagnosed with at least one of 12 systemic diseases. For most conditions...

Jun 5th, 2008 - Chronic, excess zinc intake can result in copper deficiency and profound neurologic disease. However, when hyperzincemia is identified, the source often remains elusive. We identified four patients, one previously reported, with various neurologic abnormalities in the setting of hypocupremia and hyperzincemia. Each of these patients wore dentures and used very large amounts of denture cream chr...

Jun 3rd, 2008 - Noma (cancrum oris) is a devastating gangrenous disease that leads to severe tissue destruction in the face and is associated with a high rate of mortality. When untreated, it results in disfiguring midface defects and severe scarring. Ideal reconstruction of complex maxillofacial defects requires the restitution of bone, dental implants, soft tissue, and the thin and durable lining of the oral...

Apr 14th, 2008 - The objective of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of oral mucosal lesions associated with the use of full dentures (FD) among non-institutionalized individuals of 60 or more years of age in a rural Brazilian population. The sample consisted of 344 individuals aged 60 or more from two rural communities of Brazil. Of this total, 146 were FD users and 198 FD, non-users. Angular che...

Feb 26th, 2020 - The aim of the present study is to report a case series of patients with peri-implant medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ), in particular describing the onset of the condition and surgical treatment outcome. Fifteen consecutive patients with clinical diagnosis of peri-implant MRONJ were retrospectively included in the study. The sample was stratified on the base of oral, pharmaco...

Feb 25th, 2020 - The main goal of the treatment of the peri-implantitis is to decontaminate the surface of the implant, thereby enabling further treatment involving, e.g., guided bone regeneration. Since new implants of the rougher surface were introduced to the common dental practice, decontamination is even more difficult. The aim of the study was to evaluate 3 different methods of decontaminating implants wi...

Feb 25th, 2020 - Release of titanium ions (Ti ions) frequently occurs around dental implants and, as a consequence, higher content of Ti is typically present in peri-implantitis tissue. Unlike chronic periodontitis, Ti ions may play a role in the development of peri-implantitis. Inflammasomes are multiprotein signal transduction complexes, involved in inflammation and immune response, which lead to the secretio...

Feb 24th, 2020 - Elastic properties of Aryl-Ketone-Polymer (UAKP) and tensile bond strength (TBS) to denture resin (PalaXpress) were tested. Indentation modulus (EIT) and indentation hardness (HIT) were measured via Martens hardness (n=10 specimens) with 4.2±0.6 kN/mm2 and 261±8 N/mm2 respectively. TBS was tested in dependence of different adhesives (visio.link (VL), Adhese Universal (AU), All-Bond Universal (A...
