Jack A. Hahn, DDS;Lee H. Silverstein, DDS, MS, FACD, FICD
Minimally Invasive Antral Membrane Balloon Elevation – Results of a Multicenter Registry
The challenge of bone augmentation of this segment has been traditionally addressed by two approaches: lateral maxillary window and the “osteotome technique,” also called bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation (BAOSFE).
Prosthetic Management of Implants with Different Osseous Levels
The osseointegrated implant has become a standard treatment with a high degree of predictability for patients missing one or more teeth. It is especially recommended when the patient has a clear medical history and normal bone levels in both width and height in the edentulous areas. In constant search for improvement, clinicians find themselves looking into every element relating to the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth: existing bone structure, surgical technique, implant placement, implant…
Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics
A load-free healing period has been advocated as a prerequisite to achieving osseointegration. This article reports two cases in which immediate loading of a specially designated additional or "expendable" set of titanium root-form implants was successfully utilized to support provisional fixed restorations in the maxilla and the mandible. This immediate-loading protocol is suggested as a reliable adjunctive therapeutic modality for offering implant patients access to fixed interim restorations…

Immediate Molar Implant Placement With Superwide Diameter Implant - Part 1 of 2
Dr. Lee will present a new techique utilizing a trephine to collect autogenous bone, and placement of a superwide implant 6-8mm in diameter to fill up the extraction site.
Novel Implant Planning Protocol Utilizing the 3A-2B Rule to Enhanced Predictability
This presentation describes some basic biological aspects that can be used as a rule in any treatment planning, simple or complex, to determine the viability and the ideal type of restoration in order to obtain a high aesthetic outcome. A novel Radiographic Biological Ruler will be presented and used in different type of cases to explain the concept of 3A-2B.
Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation.
CBCT 3D Imaging: Advanced Applications and Beyond
In this interactive webinar Dr. Rami Gamil compares 2D to 3D imaging modalities, CBCT to Fan Beam CT, outlines the basics of 2D MPR navigation through axial, coronal and sagittal sections in CBCT datasets, flythroughs and the techniques of 3D visualization including MIP (Maximum intensity projection) and VR (Volume Rendering) to be able to visualize soft tissue, airways, bone, lesions, impacted teeth, implants, surgical plates, root canal treatments which gives the clinician indispensable tools in his diagnostic armamentarium to be able to efficiently interpret, diagnose and plan taking the guesswork out of this equation.
