Bone modifying techniques in the anterior maxilla prior to implant placement : a literature review
Abstract: Objective: The aim was to describe the different bone enhancing techniques for improving the alveolar bone and gingival characteristics prior to implant placement Material and methods: A MEDLINE and PubMed English language peer-reviewed literature search was conducted. Hand searches of the reference lists in some selected articles were also conducted. The literature search was sorted into five different topics; autogenous bone graft, guided tissue regeneration, orthodontic extrusion, and distraction osteogenesis. Results: Forty-seven articles were considered for the review. All, except one, of the selected articles were case reports or case series describing the bone-modifying techniques. Signiﬁcant improvements in alveolar bone were reported in all cases, resulting in satisfying implant sites. Conclusions: For all five techniques presented there is a need for more research and more precise procedure protocols. Key words: Implant site development, anterior maxilla, autogenous bone graft, guided tissue regeneration, decoronation, orthodontic extrusion, distraction osteogenesis

Methacrylates in polymer-resin based dental materials: Assessment of exposure and biological effects Nilsen, Bo Wold (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2018-05-04)Materials used in dentistry are largely polymer-resin based dental materials (PRMs). PRMs contain methacrylates and organic additives that may cause adverse effects in exposed patients and dental personnel. The purpose of this thesis was to study biological effects of one of the most commonly used methacrylate in PRMs, and to investigate how patients and dental health personnel may be exposed to ...

Decision making in endodontics among the endodontic profession and general practitioners in Norway Berg, Lars Martin (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-06-10)ABSTRACT Background: Considerable variation between and within groups of NEF members and general practitioners (GPs) has been shown in the choice of endodontic retreatment options. However, uniform criteria and consensus in decision-making would be of importance when the clinical training in the dental school is arranged in a community setting by GPs employed as clinical instructors. Objectives: ...
