If it seems to good be true, it usually isn’t!

I urge you to read the link on Implant Training below first and then perhaps the essence of this posting will come to the fore.  If the term implants were changed to endo or ortho or pick the discipline du jour, the same commentary could be written…….the argument can be made that increasingly, market is driving science, but that is the job of corporations and their minions, to sell. It is our job as professionals to have “caveat emptor” tattooed strategically on our corpus.  When someone tells you they want a face to face meeting so they can have your back, you really have to think of the dichotomous nature of the statement.  So read Dr. Salehrabi’s article and then read all the snippets from SciVerse/Science Direct……interesting commentary on the what, why, how, who and when of dentistry today……..not the tabloid periodical …… I think I forgot where?

Implant Training by Mentorship!!!!????

A case of massive maxillary sinus bleeding after dental implant

Y.-H. Hong and S.-K. Mun

Abstract

In recent years,
there has been an increase in the number of dental implants, and many
complications may arise during implantation. In cases where an
artificial tooth is implanted in the maxilla, complications such as
acute maxillary sinusitis,oroantral fistula,and displacement of the
dental implant to the maxillary sinus may occur due to the anatomical
characteristics of the maxilla and the inexperience of providers. The
authors report a case of massive maxillary sinus bleeding during dental
implant that was controlled successfully by emergency surgery.

Endoscopic removal of a dental implant through a middle meatal antrostomy


Jeong-Whun Kim, Chul Hee Lee, Tack-Kyun Kwon and Dong Kyoo Kim

Abstract

Ear nose and throat surgeons use
endoscopic operations on the sinuses not only for chronic paranasal
sinusitis
but also for other operations. We report the case of a
52-year-old woman in whom we used an endoscopic technique to remove a
dental implant that had been displaced into the maxillary sinus. We
approached the sinus through the natural ostium, and the foreign body
was removed through the widened ostium.

Increasingly biology is appearing in the rear view mirror of technologic advances. Perhaps it’s time to reverse directions and remember that the mouth is a forest made up of trees and an ecosystem……only takes on tree with Dutch Elm disease or a certain kind of beetle to bring down the forest and like a fine watch, you pay for the mechanism not the strap or the buckle or the face………..nuff sed, have an inventive day.
