Gender interactions in Twitter and medical education: How is nephrology doing?

Hector M Madariaga, Christine B Sieberg, Xavier Vela, Katherine Kwon, Edgar V Lerma, Tejas Desai,

Gender inequities negatively impact productivity and career advancement for women.

Clinical Considerations on Strategies That Avoid Multiple Connections and Disconnections of Implant Abutments.

Luigi Canullo, Marco Tallarico, Stefano Gracis, Xavier Vela, Xavier Rodriguez, Ugo Covani,

Typically, healing or temporary abutments are connected and disconnected several times between implant placement and definitive restoration delivery, and soft tissue disruption occurs each time the abutment is disconnected and reconnected. This histologic event is supposed to cause bone resorption around the implant after second-stage surgery. To minimize this clinical ... Read more >>

Cutting-Edge Implant Rehabilitation Design and Management: A Tapered Abutment Approach.

Xavier Rodríguez, Xavier Vela, Maribel Segalà,

Soft-tissue recession around an implant rehabilitation over time has been considered a physiologic phenomenon. The divergent profile of the abutment and the abutment's dis/reconnections are the most critical predisposing and precipitating factors regarding such gingival recession. Recent publications have discussed how tapered and marginless abutments that allow no disconnections and ... Read more >>

Arrangement of Peri-implant Connective Tissue Fibers Around Platform-Switching Implants with Conical Abutments and Its Relationship to the Underlying Bone: A Human Histologic Study.

Xavier Rodríguez, Alvaro Navajas, Xavier Vela, Angels Fortuño, Jaime Jimenez, Myron Nevins,

The objective of this study was to clarify and evaluate the orientation of the collagen fibers around platform-switching (PS) implants with conical abutments in humans after 8 weeks of healing, and to determine how this orientation would help stabilize the soft tissue and prevent bone resorption. On PS implants, circular ... Read more >>

Crestal bone changes on platform-switched implants and adjacent teeth when the tooth-implant distance is less than 1.5 mm.

Xavier Vela, Víctor Méndez, Xavier Rodríguez, Maribel Segalá, Dennis P Tarnow,

Because of the peri-implant bone resorption that occurs when a non-platform switched implant is exposed to the oral environment, it has been recommended to maintain 1.5 mm between the tooth and implant to preserve the bone adjacent to the teeth. Several studies have documented that platform-switched implants have less peri-implant ... Read more >>

Soft tissue remodeling technique as a non-invasive alternative to second implant surgery.

Xavier Vela, Víctor Méndez, Xavier Rodríguez, Maribel Segalà, Jaime A Gil,

It is currently accepted that success in implant-supported restorations is based not only on osseointegration, but also on achieving the esthetic outcome of natural teeth and healthy soft tissues. The socalled "pink esthetic" has become the main challenge with implant-supported rehabilitations in the anterior area. This is especially difficult in ... Read more >>
