Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series
When immediate implant placement is considered
for teeth with close proximity to the sinus floor, apical
extension of the osteotomy is significantly limited, and often
a staged approach is used. Implant placement into fresh extraction sockets and sinus floor manipulation using bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation with implant placement
are techniques most often used independently or sequentially.
In this care report, immediate implant placement with simultaneous osteotome sinus floor elevation is an advantageous
combination of two successfully used techniques. This combined
approach can significantly reduce the treatment time
for implant therapy in teeth with close sinus proximity and provide the operator with the ability to place implants of desired length.
Preprosthetic Extraoral Verification for Implant-Supported Restorations
It has been well established that osteointegration of a dental implant is one of the fundamental components for successful implant therapy. A vital portion of this process is ascertainment of the appropriate prosthetic tooth position from which the ideal dental implant position is dictated within the alveolar bone. I It is equally imperative that prosthetically gUided implant positioning be accomplished for predictable attainment of functional, aesthetic, and hygienically maintainable restorative…

No Half Smiles - A Clinical Overview of Complete Care Dentistry - Part 2 of 2
Dr. Stanley presents 5 cases of full mouth rehabilitation showing how a total make over makes all the difference in patient perception of comfort and aesthetics.
Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner - Part 2
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials.
These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.
Osseous Regeneration and Soft Tissue Management: An Inseparable Binomial - Part 1 of 2
For a long time the soft and hard tissue management has been separated. In this conference series, we will present the principal factors for the attainment of results with high quality standards. This will result in long term stability for our restorations with excellent esthetic and functional outcomes.
CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants
This webinar will discuss options for Cad/Cam fabrication of ceramic restorations for teeth and implants.
Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches.
Immediate Implant Provisionalization: A Critical Aspect in Tissue Care and Esthetics-Part 1 of 2
The management of the hopeless tooth or an edentulous span in the Estheitc Zone is amongst the most clinically demanding procedures in tooth replacement do to the demands of tissue preservation and patient management during the healing phase. As important as the implant surgical process in these areas is the role of the immediate provisional restoration.
A step-by-step protocol will be presented in how to fabricate the proper screw-retained provisional restoration from the fabrication of the acrylic shell to managing and capturing the proper supportive subgingival contour.
