Mechanical Disinfection of implants: what, how, when!
Mechanical disinfection remains the cornerstone of the management of Peri-implantitis. But do we best achieve our goals? From simply rinsing with saline and rubbing with a gauze to a whole Er:Yag Lazer, there is a whole spectrum of techniques and devices that seem to achieve comparable results. How do we choose and where do we strike the best balance?

The CT-Epithelial Hybrid Graft
Whether we need keratinised Mucosa around implants or not, is a discussion that echos the decades-long debate of attached gingiva around teeth. In this article we reflect on the need -or no need- and then we discuss the technicalities of an augmentation technique which combines the benefits of free gingival and connective tissue graft which might be of help in implant cases!

Bone Level Or Tissue Level..?
The comparison between Tissue level and Bone level implants is a discussion that goes back to the very DNA of implant dentistry. Is there a difference in clinical outcomes and where exactly?
Today we will scrutinise the evidence and history trying to respond to a simple emerging question: “Does the use of tissue level implants reduces the risk for peri-implantitis?”

From Friction Stability To Osseointegration And All Things In-Between..!
Starting from the basics of osseointegration, in this article we disect our common perceptions about primary stability, bone resorption, aggressive and passive implants and we finally end up introducing a new term, busting one of Nikos’ oldest slides and opening up much more for discussion..!
