Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes and Soft Tissue Manipulation
Jack A. Hahn, DDS;Lee H. Silverstein, DDS, MS, FACD, FICD
Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides
Often, diﬃculties related to poor surgical or prosthetic outcomes can be directly linked to the diagnostic and treatment-planning phase.
Instrumentation for Modern Day Implant Surgery
Public awareness of the aesthetic possibilities through the replacement of missing or nonsalvageable teeth has been elevated with advances in dental implant therapy and related hard and soft tissue regenerative therapies. This has led to an increase in the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by either natural teeth, dental implants, or removable prostheses anchored by implants rather than conventional tissue- or tooth-supported partial dentures.
Root Fracture During Insertion of Prefabricated Posts
The consequence of inappropriate post selection and/ or hasty insertion can result in tooth fracture and/or loss. It has been demonstrated that conical or parallel sided post design has a direct effect on root fracture during post insertion. However, during experimentation it became apparent that root size and its relationship to post size had a direct effect on root fracture. This article correlates root size, post size, and fracture rate during insertion of prefabricated posts.
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.
Simplified Implant Solutions for Tooth Replacement in the Delayed Ridge
This video highlights delayed placement of a 2nd premolar implant after 4 months following bone grafting with mineralized irradiated allograft bone.
Prosthetic Management of Immediate Implant Placement
Implant dentistry is continuously evolving offering new and more predictable forms of therapy with minimally invasive protocols. Innovative techniques now allow for better aesthetics and greater patient comfort. However, these new techniques and therapies continue to raise questions and concerns regarding the risk and rewards of each. Specifically, controversial issues regarding esthetic outcomes related to immediate single anterior tooth implant replacement and immediate provisional restoration will be presented. This lecture will address current concepts, research, and innovations in immediate implant placement and how they can enhance treatment procedures, time, and clinical outcomes for greater patient care and satisfaction.
Immediate Implant Provisionalization: A Critical Aspect in Tissue Care and Esthetics
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.
Microimplant Usage in Orthodontic Treatment: Applications, Limitations, and Specific Case Implications
Microimplants are successfully changing traditional orthodontics. Latest techniques presented through animation and case treatment notes to increase optimal therapy.
CBCT as an Interdisciplinary Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Tool
This presentation will discuss and demonstrate the utilization of CBCT imaging from the perspective and scope of a periodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Treatment planning, critical thinking skills and surgical execution of cases demonstrating complex dentoalveolar bone reconstruction and craniofacial deformities will be presented demonstrating how this paradigm shift has expanded capabilities and predictability to treat demanding cases.
