A reliable computerized method to determine the level of the radiographic alveolar crest
Regarding the altered frenulum, they were more frequent with fixation between the middle third and the apex and visible from the inferior alveolar crest
, the thin thickness was the most observed in both cases.
To measure 'y': point from zygomatic process to alveolar crest
in maxillary first molar regions) in dentulous maxilla.
Table 1--Artery localization according to age, gender, and edentulous/ dentulous alveolar crest
When the osteoplastic materials are not used in the management of the patients following primary debridement the AP flaws and alveolar crest
deformities can be seen in patients with maxillary AP fractures.
Insufficient width of alveolar crest
has led to the application of different grafting techniques.
The reexamination 6 months later showed that conventional management of AP fractures resulted in 65% post-traumatic deformity of the alveolar crest
, complicating subsequent prosthetics.
Gingival veneer can be used effectively in interdental defects with > 5 mm gap between contact point and alveolar crest
to mask interdental black triangles, exposed root surfaces, and/or crown margins.
Edentulism in the posterior region of maxilla will not only lead to alveolar ridge resorption but also results in shifting of maxillary sinus towards the alveolar crest
minimizing the superior inferior level of bone available.
Bergland, Semb and Abyholm in 1986 proposed a method of evaluating the success of alveolar bone grafting by measuring the alveolar crest
height in relation to the adjacent teeth.
The periodontist evaluated for no bone loss (CEJ to alveolar crest
Traumatic tooth loss leads to alveolar resorption especially in sagittal direction, either due to direct loss of osseous structure because of injury or due to resorption of the alveolar crest
that takes place after the loss of tooth.
