Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes and Soft Tissue Manipulation

The Replacement of Small-Diameter Teeth in the Esthetic Zone Using Narrow-Diameter Implants
The lack of bone available for the surgeon
as well as the lack of restorative space available
between the adjacent teeth makes tooth
replacement with implants challenging
for both the restorative dentist and the
Finding Z: A Mathematical Method For Predicting Tissue Position After Implant Abutment-Restoration Placement
A visible abutment-restorative interface is a problematic consequence, especially in the esthetic zone. This article presents
formulas to predict the vertical tissue position around the abutment-restoration, which can be used both as a guide to the
clinical situation and as an aid to computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing design.
Fifty Years of Interdisciplinary Site Development: Lessons & Guidelines from Periodontal Prosthesis
Just as "osseointegration" became synonymous with successful restoration of function in the fully edentulous patient during the 1980s, the term "implant site development" has become intricately associated in the 1990s with the techniques used to achieve esthetic results with implants in the partially edentulous patient. This article explores the roots of the concept of site development within the philosophy and principles of periodontal prosthesis. In addition, the myriad of techniques that are…
Partners in Synergy - The Webinar Event; Augmentation Strategies in Implant Dentistry
This course will highlight the current available regenerative techniques and protocols to maximize the esthetic results of tooth replacement therapy. Extraction site management, labial bone enhancement as well as current gingival augmentation techniques will be featured. These highly acclaimed clinicians and educators will team up to provide a glimpse of their upcoming LIVE Synergy VI conference June 11th - 14th, 2015 in Orlando, Florida.
Effective Techniques for Placement of Narrow Diameter Implants - Part 3 of 3
This presentation utilizes results from a prospective clinical trial as well as clinical experience to outline indications for effective and efficient utilization of narrow diameter implants in regions of limited space.
Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration
The IDR (Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration) technique has been used for over 6 years. With it, we can reconstruct socket tissue losses in the same surgical session of dental extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, minimizing the treatment time and morbidity of the procedures.
In this presentation we discuss the hard and soft tissues stability when the IDR technique is applied in different types of periodontal biotypes and in sites with different defect levels.
The clinical, radiographic and tomographic follow-up of some cases is shown, allowing us to evaluate the maintenance of gingival architecture and peri-implant bone stability around the implants.
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.
Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction.
Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.
Digital Dentures: Revolutionizing Treatment for the Edentulous Patient
While the number of edentulous patients is increasing every year, the access to care is decreasing. In order to streamline the complete denture process, more companies are incorporating CAD/CAM. This lecture will review how digital technology is changing complete dentures, and how it can be incorporated into clinical practice.
