Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach
Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge
due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: This
study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated
implants placed in extraction sockets. This protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of
the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal
bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability
of long-term results.
Implant Treatment Sequencing
Periodontal or endodontic related osseous infections of natural teeth may complicate implant treatment. Staging of the surgical aspects of the treatment is important to achieve the desired restorative objectives. Additionally, when cosmetic correction of adjacent natural teeth is required as part of the overall treatment, the final result will be influenced by proper sequencing. Implant surgical placement in immediate extraction sites has been well documented in the literature as a successful treatment…
Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement, Part 2. The Effects of Bone Grafting and Provisional Restoration on Peri-implant Soft Tissue Height & Thickness - A Retrospective Study
This article presents the results of evaluating the changes in peri-implant soft tissue dimensions associated with immediate implant placement into anterior post-extraction sockets for four treatment groups: no BGPR(bone graft, no provisional restoration), PR (no bone graft, provisional restoration), BG (bone graft, no provisional restoration), and BGPR (bone graft, provisional restoration). The vertical distance of the peri-implant soft tissue was greater for grafted sites than for non-grafted ones. The facial soft tissue thickness at the gingival third was greater for grafted than for non-grafted sites and for sites with provisional restorations compared to sites without them, respectively. The net gain in soft tissue height and thickness was about 1mm. The increases in vertical and horizontal dimensions for grafted sites were between 0.5 and 1.0mm, as compared to sites with no bone graft and no provisional restoration.
Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional - The Penn Protocol
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition for sub-optimal esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly; including scenarios where tooth preservation may be the preferred alternative. Provided that an immediate implant placement and provisionalization technique is utilized, single tooth implant sites without soft or hard tissue defects offer the most potential for predictable esthetic outcomes. This presentation will feature a comprehensive description of the protocol currently utilized at the University of Pennsylvania’s Periodontal Prosthesis program, including a discussion of the treatment rationale and technique considerations.
Carico immediato in zona estetica negli alveoli post estrattivi: considerazioni diagnostiche, chirurgiche e protesiche
In questa lezione, saranno discussi tutti i parametri per ottenere una corretta diagnosi dell’alveolo ed il successivo piano di trattamento correlato ad ogni tipo di alveolo. La bone zone e la tissue zone saranno valutati e discussi in dettaglio, analizzando ognuna delle loro variabili.
Bone Augmentation and Implant Planning in a 3-D CBCT World
Don’t sit on the sidelines! Incorporate CBCT technology into your practice today for improved implant treatment planning, perio defect diagnostics, identification of perio-endo involvement, bone grafting evaluation, surgical guide fabrication and implant outcomes assessment. This presentation will highlight cases where CBCT unparalleled views positively affected diagnosis, treatment plans, outcomes and case acceptance.
The Use of Digital Technology for Patient Care
In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtaining with these are systematic and overlapping times better than traditional one.
Zirconia Implants in the Age of 3D Imaging: An Alternative Therapy for Aesthetics and Function
Computer Guiding dental implants provides perfect positioning for mechanics and cosmetic results. The advantages provided by the implant selection utilizing interactive software libraries allows the implantologist to choose the best diameter, length and implant design for the specific surgical site. Zirconia implants can be computer guided and planned with interactive software and will provide enhanced aesthetic results as well as top gingival health due to the multiple advantages of zirconia.
The purpose of this lecture is to describe an alternative procedure to computer guide Zirconia Implants in the aesthetic zone and to manage the functional aspects related to loading and functional requirements for a long lasting stability of the case.
Brilliant Implant Esthetics - Innovative Soft Tissue Shaping and Prosthetic Socket Preservation
