Recently dental Implant therapy has become a widely accepted treatment option for thereplacement of missing teeth.According to available literature, successful maintenance and regeneration of the keratinized gingiva and bonewhich are lost following tooth extraction at implant site is very important for long term survival of implant. In present case report, A 24-year-old Saudi femalestudent, was referred to replace her missing tooth #46. Through clinical and radiographic examination revealed inadequate keratinized gingiva and horizontalbone loss in the area of #46. After phase I therapy, soft tissue augmentation was achieved by using free gingival autograft.After three months of healing, we placed the dental implant with hard tissue augmentation by using xenograft. Six months post-operative follow-up yielded positive results with respect to esthetic and function. Prosthetic rehabilitation of the implant was done with a ceramic crown for reestablishment of masticatory function. A comprehensive treatment planning is essential for achieving positive outcomes. The presence of a bunch of soft and hard tissue improves long term survival ofimplant and makes plaque maintenance easier around it.

Background:Dental implants have become a valuable alternative to dental prostheses supported by remaining teeth or adjacent oral soft tissues. The present study was conducted to assess prosthetic complications of dental implants.
Materials & Methods: The present retrospective study was conducted on 87 patients who received 120 dental implants of both genders. Type of complications was recorded in all.
Results: Out of 87 patients, males were 40 and females were 47. Age group 18-28 years had 5 males with 8 implants, 6 females with 10 implants, age group 28-38 years had 12 males with 18 implants and 14 females with 21 implants, 38-48 years had 13 males with 7 implants and 12 females with 17 implants, >48 years had 10 males with 13 implants and 15 females with 16 implants. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Prosthetic complications were ceramic veneer fracture in 4 cases, prosthesis screw loosening in 3, prosthesis debonding in 2 cases, abutment loosening in 8 cases and abutment fracture in 1 case. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Authors found that common complications were ceramic veneer fracture, abutment loosening, abutment fracture, prosthesis screw loosening and prosthesis debonding

Introduction: Several randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have assessed the effectiveness of lifting the maxillary sinuses. Our study did additional research, in which it was witnessed that bone neoformation and implant osseointegration after sinus lifting with/ without grafting material was possible. In the current study we aimed to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis on the maxillary sinus lift up and implant placement.
Methodology: An electronic search was performed in PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Web of Science, Embase, till 2020. We considered prospective and retrospective cohort studies, controlled clinical trials, and randomized clinical trials. The search and selection process yielded 18 studies, published between 2005 and 2020. A meta- analysis was conducted only for experimental studies comparing sinus floor elevation with and without grafting material; results were expressed as the standardized mean difference (SMD) or risk ratio (RR) with the 95% confidence interval (CI).

Introduction: The ill effects of tobacco on human health have been well demonstrated yet tobacco continues to find a very special place in the present day to day life probably because of the stimulant effects of nicotine.5, The present study was conducted to assess failure rate of dental implant in smokers and healthy subjects. Materials & methods: 54 smokers (group I) and equal number of healthy subjects (group II) who received dental implant in last 5 years of both genders were recruited. Amount of bone loss around the implant over 1mm of bone loss in the first year and over 0.3 mm bone loss every subsequent year were considered as failures. Results: Group I consisted of 68 patients (smokers) with 76 dental implants. Group II consisted of 54 patients (healthy subjects) with 78 implants. In group I, there were 16 and in group II, there were 3 dental implant failures. At first year, in group I, mean bone loss around implant was 1.21 mm and 0.5 mm in group II. Upto 5 years, in group I, mean bone loss around implant was 2.7 mm and 1.4 mm in group II. The difference was significant p< 0.05).Conclusion: Smokers had higher dental implant failure rates as compared to healthy subjects.

Background: Bruxism was generally deliberated as a contraindication for oral implanting. The fundamental relationship amid bruxism and dental implant failure has remained debatable in current literatures

Background:Dental implant design determines the implant success. The present study was conducted to assess dental implant thread design on marginal bone loss.
Materials & Methods:This study was conducted on 104 dental implants. They were divided into 2 groups. Group I patients received spiral implants and group II patients received dual fit implants. Each group had 52 dental implants. Patients were recalled after 6 months to see marginal bone loss.
RESULTS: The mean marginal bone loss in group I was 2.04 mm and in group II was 2.26 mm. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). The mean survival rate in group I was 96.2% and in group II was 95.1%.
CONCLUSION:Spiral implants had less bone loss and higher survival rate as compared to dual fit implants.
