Ten-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate is a bit of a tongue-twister for anyone not a chemist by profession, so in everyday communication, this adhesive monomer is referred to by its three initial letters, MDP. The monomer was developed by Kuraray Noritake Dental in 1981 to improve the adhesive strength to hydroxyapatite and has proved its strength ever since. It is indispensable in dentistry. For example, reliable adhesive cementation of zirconia restorations would not be possible without MDP.

Several factors are involved in the achievement of implant primary stability, such as the insertion torque, the implant’s macrogeometry, the surgical technique, and the bone quality and quantity. Implant primary stability is considered one of the key factors for osseointegration and is associated with insertion torque. Several studies have suggested that insertion torque values of 25–45 N cm could prevent micromovements that could impair the bone healing around the implants. The aim of the present randomized clinical trial was to evaluate and compare the clinical outcome for implants placed with a high insertion torque (50–100 N cm) and a regular insertion torque (within 50 N cm) in healed ridges after two years.

Different surgical treatment strategies for periimplantitis using graft material and membranes have been suggested. However, in these, the microbiological aspects of the periimplant environment were underestimated. The present preliminary study was aimed at analyzing a new clinical approach based on disinfection of the implant connection and of the implant surface, as well as the use of only a self-stabilizing graft material in the treatment of circumferential and semicircumferential bony defects resulting from periimplantitis.

The aim of this comprehensive systematic review was to present the different definitions of periimplantitis proposed in the literature.

The aim of the present pilot case series study was to present a new technique for managing the periimplant soft tissue before implant placement, the soft-tissue template technique.

The causes of early implant failures during the osseointegration process include poor quality and quantity of bone and soft tissue, the patient’s medical condition, unfavorable patient habits (bruxism, heavy long-term smoking, poor oral hygiene, others), inadequate surgical analysis and technique inadequate prosthetic analysis and technique, suboptimal implant design and surface characteristics implant position or location and unknown factors. This article attempts to further investigate implant location as one of many factors in early stages of diagnosis that improves success rate in implant dentistry treatment. Predisposing factors to implant complications in different jaw regions are discussed.
