Summary:

Achieving optimal esthetic restorative results associated with anterior extraction and tooth replacement continues to be one of the most challenging endeavors in reconstructive cosmetic dentistry. When implant therapy is the treatment of choice, the margin for error is further decreased dramatically and methods to minimize and/or eliminate the potential for failure must be employed. This is especially relevant when the tooth to be extracted is associated with significant hard and soft tissue deficiencies. Assessing the patient's expectations, establishing a thorough diagnosis, and choosing the optimal therapeutic options to sequence and design treatment are key considerations for predictable success. Part 1 of this two-part article describes just such a clinical challenge related to the replacement of a severely compromised central incisor, with special emphasis placed on the utilization of pre-extraction orthodontic therapy to enhance the hard and soft tissue profile of the future implant receptor.

Linear Tomography in Conjuction with Pantomography in Implant Assessmnet Sites
Tomography provides a three-dimensional unobstructed and anatomically accurate picture of the region being viewed. Tomography is a radiographic technique in which a "slice" or section of a given internal body structure is imaged in a pre-determined plane. The advantage of utilizing a tomographic evaluation along with a pan tomographic survey is that the clinician may examine the exact position or depth in all three planes of visualization. This radiographic modality can also reveal the quality and…

Periodontally Considerations of Dental Implantology
<p>The endosseous dental implant has steadily progressed to become an important modality of restoring incomplete dentitions in either fully or partially edentulous patients. Osseointegrated dental implants have demonstrated relatively high success rates in both the maxillary and the mandibular jaws. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the American Dental Association (ADA), and numerous other professional organizations have endorsed the placement of osseointegrated dental implants as…

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.
