Summary:

Background: Following tooth extraction and immediate implant installation, the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes substantial bone modeling and the ridge dimensions are reduced.
Objective: The objective of the present experiment was to determine whether the process of bone modeling following tooth extraction and immediate implant placement was influenced by the placement of a xenogenic graft in the void that occurred between the implant and the walls of the fresh extraction socket.
Material and methods: Five beagle dogs about 1 year old were used. The 4th premolar in both quadrants of the mandible (4P4) were selected and used as experimental sites. The premolars were hemi-sected and the distal roots removed and, subsequently, implants were inserted in the distal sockets. In one side of the jaw, the marginal buccal-approximal void that consistently occurred between the implant and the socket walls was grafted with Bio-Oss Collagen while no grafting was performed in the contra-lateral sites. After 6 months of healing, biopsies from each experimental site were obtained and prepared for histological analyses.
Results: The outline of the marginal hard tissue of the control sites was markedly different from that of the grafted sites. Thus, while the buccal bone crest in the grafted sites was comparatively thick and located at or close to the SLA border, the corresponding crest at the control sites was thinner and located a varying distance below SLA border.
Conclusions: It was demonstrated that the placement of Bio-Oss Collagen in the void between the implant and the buccal-approximal bone walls of fresh extraction sockets modified the process of hard tissue healing, provided additional amounts of hard tissue at the entrance of the previous socket and improved the level of marginal bone-to-implant contact.

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants
Titanium endosseous implants have been increasingly used in various edentulous situations for well over a decade. Cigarette smoking has long been suspected as adversely affecting wound healing. Arteriolar vasoconstriction and decreased blood flow are seen in response to smoking. In the oral cavity,an increase in plaque accumulation,a higher incidence of gin-givitis and periodontitis,a higher rate of tooth loss,and an increased resorption of the alveolar ridge have been found among smokers.

“My First Implant”: Conservative Management of a Failing Posterior Maxillary Tooth
In this 2 Part video case report, “conservative” management of a failing premolar in the posterior maxilla is managed by a Dentist beginner placing their first dental implant at a course at the DentalXP Center in Atlanta. Atraumatic Management of the Extraction Site utilizing Ultrasonic Surgery, Extractor elevators and followed by Socket Grafting with PRGF and mineralized bone allograft is featured in Part 1. Flap Reflection, Drilling sequence, 3D placement of the implant, and simple suturing is highlighted in Part 2. The follow up and evaluation of the healing of the socket graft displayed significant bone volume for implant placement in this conservative staged approach for the “beginner” in Implant Dentistry.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla Premium Member Content

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla
Since the advent of osseointegration, the patient who is edentulous or soon to be edentulated has many options to prevent wearing complete removable prosthesis. In the maxillary arch there are anatomical features that may preclude patients successfully utilizing an implant prosthesis. Some of these include alveolar resorptive changes after extractions, pnuematized sinuses, hard and soft tissue palatal vault configurations, and bone exostosis with associated undercuts. Psychological, many patients suffer after the loss of teeth with loss of self-esteem and avoidance behaviors. This program will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures of the All On Four patient. In this webinar, Dr. Duello will build upon the material provided in previous presentations on DentalXP with detailed guidance on clinical procedures for the All On Four in the maxilla.

Total Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept Premium Member Content

Total Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept
A fixed implant supported prosthesis is the ideal treatment option for the edentulous patient and those facing the imminent loss of their remaining dentition. Through innovation, along with continuous clinical and scientific research, it has become possible to treat virtually every edentulous case with a highly functional and esthetic fixed solution.This widely applicable surgical protocol allows for a simple and immediate rehabilitation with a provisional bridge fixed on 4 implants, with minimum cantilevers, 3-4 hours after the surgery. The final prosthodontic work is of extreme importance. The MALO CLINIC Ceramic Bridge is the epitome of biomedical engineering combined with NobelProcera® CAD\CAM technology to provide patients with an extremely esthetic precision implant supported functional replication of the natural dentition.
