ORO-ANTRAL COMMUNICATIONS

RECONSTRUCTING HARD & SOFT TISSUES

Due to Previously Failed Implant Treatments.

WHY DO ORO-ANTRAL COMMUNICATIONS OCCUR?

  • Revisions or retreatment of cases that have had previous dental implant treatment

  • Advanced bone replacement procedures that, due to either poor patient compliance, iatrogenic error, or poor quality of the pre- existing alveolar and/or soft tissues, have led to large osseous defects

  • Aggressive bone reduction required in various implant procedures

  • Residual sinus infections precluding proper closure of the oral wound margins

  • Failed sinus elevation and grafting procedures

  • Large perforations of the Schneiderian membrane in sinus grafting and elevation procedures where primary wound closure cannot be obtained

  • Residual oro-antral defects and bone loss in residual tooth extractions where significant amounts of bone destruction is noted apical and lateral to the tooth/ teeth to be removed

  • Osteomyletis radiation therapy or trauma    

 

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF AN ORO-ANTRAL COMMUNICATION?

  • Recurrent sinus infections

  • Patient discomfort

  • Soft-tissue infections

  • Loss of the distal implant fixture

  • Transfer of liquid from mouth to nose when drinking beverages

  • Feeling of air passing through the area as the patient breathes

                                                                     

WHY WE'RE THE EXPERTS AT TREATING ORO-ANTRAL COMMUNICATIONS

Dr. Petrungaro is world renowned for effectively treating failed cases. As the leading pioneer in his field, he has successfully treated countless, extraordinarily difficult cases. His innovative thinking and expertise ensures a successful treatment plan with outstanding results.

He developed a unique approach to the resolution of large oro-antral communications that not only is aimed at repairing the soft-tissue defect but also restoring the posterior maxillary alveolar bone.

Dr. Petrungaro's published a study, outlined in the below article, that resulted in total closure of the oro-antral communication in more than 25 oro-antral fistulas with large underlying osseous defects present. His method has been shown to be a predictable and highly effective solution in which the regeneration of the posterior maxillary alveolar structure can be achieved, and can potentially allow additional implants to again be placed into these areas. Now get a a one on one take in the dentistry training.
