Immediate Implant Placement with GBR Using Alloplast
Presented here is a case report wherein guided bone regeneration was done simultaneously at the time of immediate implant placement to achieve a desirable outcome.
Immediate Occlusal Loading the Same Day or Day After Implant Placement
Immediate loading of endosseous implants is becoming a widespread therapeutic procedure for the rehabilitation of patients with edentulous jaws. The purpose of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the long-term success rate of endosseous implants placed in the edentulous lower jaw and loaded on either the same day of surgery or the next day. Nineteen patients were enrolled in the study. Eleven patients, accounting for 64 implants, received their provisional prosthesis the same day of…
Osseointegrated Titanium Implants for Maxillofacial Protraction in Monkeys
Titanium implants were placed surgically into the maxillary, zygomatic, frontal, and occipital bones of four pigtail monkeys. After a 4-month healing period, the implants were exposed and abutments were placed. Extraoral traction appliances were then attached to the abutments. The cranial implants were used to support the framework of the traction appliance; those in the facial bones were used to attach springs that delivered a protraction force. The application of force varied among animals. In animal…
The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.
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.
Implant Solutions for the Edentulous Patient: Using Digital Technology from Diagnosis to Delivery
This program will focus on new modalities for the treatment planning of edentulous patients. Advancements in technology such as CBCT, planning software, surgical guides and CAD/CAM allow dentists to develop in a virtual environment, restoratively driven, predictable outcomes for patients.
Insights, Trends & Controversies in Implant Dentistry - Part 3 of 4
In this third 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.
Cad Cam Technologies to Restore a Case on Natural Dentition & Implant
Dr Agnini will describe various clinical options and techniques for efficiently and esthetically fabricating a temporary restoration immediately after implant placement in the replacement of a single tooth.
