Summary:

In the esthetic zone of the maxilla a proper emergence profile, predicated on healthy normal marginal gingival tissues with intact interdental papillae, is critical to achieving esthetically pleasing traditional fixed and implant supported restorations. Adequate soft tissue morphology, however, is dependent upon a stable, adequate volume of underlying bone capable of serving as a viable, biologic foundation for overlying soft tissues. Without the harmony afforded by a proper balance of underlying bone and overlying soft tissue, esthetic restorations are not possible, especially in the anterior maxilla. Frequently, however,alveolar bone loss disturbs that critical balance,resulting in marginal tissue distortion, recession and loss of esthetically crucial interdental papillae. Bone loss is common in the esthetic zone and can result from multiple precipitating events, the most common following tooth extraction. Multiple studies have documented predictable 3 mm to 4 mm of buccolingual and apicocoronal ridge resorption within 6 months after removal of maxillary anterior teeth. If left untreated up to 50% buccolingual bone loss will occur after one year post tooth removal in the critical esthetic zone.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective- bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable treatment alternative. These procedures led to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures in a single surgical stage and to maintenance of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24 months afterwards.

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface Premium Member Content

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading Premium Member Content

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading
In Immediate loading, the survival rate is often based on the follow-up of the osseointegration, but without aesthetic appreciation... The main goal is to achieve osseointegration and aesthetics in order to get long term stability. For this goal we need to obtain both, bone formation and gum thickness, as any failure in one of the 2 factors, will induce the loss of the second factor. This presentation will show my statistics about more than 1100 full arch loaded immediately since 14 years (> 7700 implants)

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration Premium Member Content

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
An injury to the tissue instantly stimulates the healing process. To heal properly, we need three elements: scaffolds, cells and growth factors. If one of these three elements are missing there will be no tissue regeneration. Plasma rich in growth factors (Endoret® (PRGF®) technology, enables clinicians to apply autologous growth factors and a fibrin scaffold in a simple, safe and effective method. The Endoret® (PRGF®) stimulates the tissue-building cells to achieve regeneration. An optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by fast haemostasis, adequate inflammation, stem cell mobilization and differentiation, rapid soft tissue closure of the socket and correct tissue regeneration. The adequate management of the extraction socket will determine the final outcome of implant-supported restorations.

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.
