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.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

CT Scan Technology

CT Scan Technology
Implant dentistry, one of the most predictable treatment alternatives offered to patients who are missing teeth can be enhanced by thorough pre-surgical diagnosis and treatment planning efforts by all members of the implant team. Conventional radiologic techniques including periapical and panoramic radiographs are limited by the two dimensional interpretation of existing hard and soft tissue. The inherent distortion factor can misrepresent bone topography in critical areas associated with vital anatomy or potential implant sites. Advances in diagnostic radiological techniques improved with the introduction of CT scan technology for dental applications. The enhanced diagnostic range of this evolving technology empowers the clinician with necessary tools to avoid potential complications associated with implant dentistry.

“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.
