Immediate Rehabilitation of the Completely Edentulous Jaw with a Fixed Prostheses Supported by Implants
The aims of this study were to assess the treatment outcome of immediately loaded full-arch screw-retained prostheses with distal extensions supported by both upright and tilted implants for the rehabilitation of edentulous jaws and to compare the outcomes of upright versus tilted implants.
Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes
This article demonstrates the importance of proper surgical and prosthetic principles in achieving esthetic implant
results.Successful dental implant therapy in the maxillary anterior dentition requires meticulous attention to surgical
and prosthodontic measures.
Proper diagnosis, extraction technique, implant selection, and placement significantly impact
outcomes. Respect of hard and soft tissue physiology following tooth loss and implant placement requires specific steps
be taken. Management tissue contours properly, via regenerative therapy, results in successful framing of the restoration.
Provisionalization and definitive restorative therapy also impacts the level of esthetic success.The contours of the
temporary abutment and crown develop soft tissue contours for the final restoration. Overcontouring can lead to soft
tissue recession and mucosal asymmetry. Design of the definitive crown(s) is crucial for long-term maintenance of
esthetically acceptable results.
Restoring Facial Aesthetics and Function with Implant Overdentures
Implant supported overdentures are
fast becoming the choice of treatment for
edentulous patients as they provide various
advantages over the conventional dentures;
most importantly they are a reliable and
simple solution to denture retention and
stability problems. This article discusses
aesthetics and function provided with
implant borne Overdentures in Maxillary
and Mandibular arches.
Bio-Surgery; Tips for More Biological and Prosthodontic Approach
In oral rehabilitation, obtaining a good aesthetic outcome is no longer enough for our patients. It is imperative that these good results do prevail in time. The best way to achieve this goal, is to
correctly diagnose each individual clinical case, and to choose Biological tools and Biological treatment techniques, that respect our own physiology and Nature.
Through this lecture, the authors try to share a few Surgical and Prosthodontic Bio-tips in Implant Dentistry, that in a simple and predictable way, can lead us to a great long lasting aesthetic results.
A Different Kind of Platform Shifting to Preserve Bone and Soft Tissue - Part 1 of 3
Dr. Fetner discusses the essentials of placing a Ankylos Implant in the esthetic zone.
Reverse Engineering and Optical Scan Technology in Implant Dentistry
In this clinical video, tooth replacement of maxillary canine is performed utilizing CBCT technology for pre-assessment of the osseous ridge form followed by incisionless transmucosal implant placement with a Ritter Implant. This allows us to Optically Scan with a 3 Shape unit the stable Soft tissue form, occlusion and implant position using a scan body on the Ritter Spiral Implant System prior to any surgical incision is initiated. This information is sent off to the lab for final abutment milling and provisionalization at 3 days. Surgical entry and bone regeneration utilizing PRGF is performed last to allow for tissue shaping with the provisional restoration.

The 10 Year Evolution of Guided Surgery, What We Have Learned From our First Patients
The initial NobelGuide protocol was developed and completed in 2003 for the first series of treated North American edentulous patients. The 10-year clinical results from this initial patient group treated with implant placement and immediate loading via a fixed prosthesis, now provides insights into what have we learned from the evolution of guided implant treatments to ensure and improve surgical and prosthodontic treatment outcomes.
Immediate Loading in Implant Dentistry – Coherent Clinical Application in Everyday Practice
In this webinar presentation, Dr. Henry Salama will outline clinical protocols to facilitate efficient, successful and predictable application of immediate loading protocols for single unit replacement as well as fully edendulous patients. Dr. Salama will utilize research data on bone biology and biomechanics around implants to suggest treatment planning parameters for well organized team logistics and clinical management of both surgical and restorative protocols to minimize risk factors and optimize successful outcomes. In addition, Digital imaging, CAD/CAM and temporization will be especially emphasized.
