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.
Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up
Replacing both missing maxillary interior teeth is particularly challenging, especially in compromised sockets. The case report describes the management of an 18-year-old female patient, who suffered avulsion of both maxillary central incisors at 7 years of age. The multidisciplinary implant technique, called Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR), included extraction of the injured teeth and a single procedure for immediate implant placement and restoration of the compromised sockets after root fracture and peri-apical lesion development were detected during orthodontic treatment. Successful esthetic and functional outcomes and reestablishment of the alveolar process after bone reconstruction were observed during the 3-year follow-up period. The predictable esthetic outcomes and soft and hard tissue stability that can be achieved following IDR are demonstrated.
Socket Preservation to Gain
Tooth loss not only poses difficulty in mastication, it also involves the probable resorption of alveolar bone due to a loss of function and stimulation from the periodontal ligament fibers (PDL). Bone grafting at the time of tooth removal provides bone quantity and quality for future placement of dental implant(s). The challenge during this procedure—referred to as socket preservation—is maintaining the graft in place as well as providing a final working area with sufficient keratinized tissue…
Full Mouth Implant Rehabilitation of a Severe Periodontally Compromised Patient
This presentation describes the treatment of a severely compromised periodontal patient. Emphasizing the critical sequencing of therapy as well as the management of hard and soft tissue deficiencies are all part of achieving a successful outcome in this very challenging case.
Implant Design – The Four Essential Components for Clinicians
Dr. Paolo Trisi, a clinician and researcher, discusses the key attributes of implant design and how they may effect the critical surgical and restorative decisions made by clinicians.
Immediate Loading: State of the Art - Pt 1
Dr. Romanos lectures on immediate loading in compromised and augmented sites.
Brilliant Implant Esthetics - Innovative Soft Tissue Shaping and Prosthetic Socket Preservation
This presentation will demonstrate a workflow for oral surgeons, prosthodontists and dental technicians to achieve a predictable midfacial soft tissue level by an effective and atraumatic protocol.
Insights, Trends & Controversies in Implant Dentistry - Part 4 of 4
In this last of a 4 part series, Dr. Dennis Tarnow shares insights into new trends, developments and controversies in implant dentistry. In this section, Dr. Tarnow discusses important topics related to implantitis, the gap, one-abutment/one-time, implant surfaces and design to name just a few.
Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy
This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.
