Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last two decades, implant-prosthetic therapy has seen a considerable growth due to the development of new dental implant systems and minimally invasive implant techniques, the improvement of materials and techniques used in the rehabilitation of the implant sites, the use of the digital techniques used in the virtual planning of the implant-prosthetic therapy, as well as the emergence of 3D navigation systems and haptic robotic technology used to assist the surgical implant procedures. These changes have expanded the range of the possibilities to plan implant procedures and prosthetic restoration design, to execute surgical implant procedures and to select restorative choices for the therapy of the edentulous patients by implant-supported fixed and removable dentures.

This Special Issue on “New Trends in Implant-Prosthetic Therapy” in Applied Sciences encourages high quality original research studies, clinical articles, and reviews focused on the topic of the current and future trends in implant-prosthetic therapy.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Factors Influencing Primary and Secondary Implant Stability—A Retrospective Cohort Study with 582 Implants in 272 Patients

The success rate of dental implants depends on primary and secondary stability. We investigate predictive factors for future risk stratification models. We retrospectively analyze 272 patients with a total of 582 implants. Implant stability is measured with resonance frequency analysis and evaluated based on the implant stability quotient (ISQ). A linear regression model with regression coefficients (reg. coeff.) and its 95% confidence interval (95% CI) is applied to assess predictive factors for implant stability. Implant diameter (reg. coeff.: 3.28; 95% CI: 1.89–4.66, p < 0.001), implant length (reg. coeff.: 0.67, 95% CI: 0.26–1.08, p < 0.001), and implant localization (maxillary vs. mandibular, reg. coeff.: −7.45, 95% CI: −8.70–(−6.20), p < 0.001) are significant prognostic factors for primary implant stability. An increase in ISQ between insertion and exposure is significantly correlated with healing time (reg. coeff.: 0.11, 95% CI: 0.04–0.19). Patients with maxillary implants have lower ISQ at insertion but show a higher increase in ISQ after insertion than patients with mandibular implants. We observe positive associations between primary implant stability and implant diameter, implant length, and localization (mandibular vs. maxillary). An increase in implant stability between insertion and exposure is significantly correlated with healing time and is higher for maxillary implants. These predictive factors should be further evaluated in prospective cohort studies to develop future preoperative risk-stratification models. Full article

Strategic Use of CAD-CAM Interim Restoration for the Recovery of the Vertical Dimension of Occlusion in the Posterior Partially Edentulous Jaw

Occlusal contact loss occasionally occurs following the placement of implant-supported fixed dental prostheses in the posterior region. This complication is caused by the change in the vertical dimension of occlusion after the recovery of mastication. The change is probably related to the prosthesis sinking phenomenon and previous mandibular dislocation. The use of interim prostheses could help re-establish the vertical dimension of occlusion. The definitive prostheses can then be accurately fabricated using digital techniques in the newly established vertical dimension. In this case report, we introduce a protocol incorporating a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) interim prosthesis and digital techniques to minimize the occurrence of unexpected initial occlusal changes in the prosthetic treatment of implant-supported prostheses in the posterior region.
