Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial
It has been shown that thin mucosal tissues may be an important factor in crestal bone loss etiology. Thus,
it is possible that mucosal tissue thickening with allogenic membrane might reduce crestal bone loss.
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how implants with traditional connection maintain crestal bone level
after soft tissue thickening with allogenic membrane.
After 1-year follow-up, implants in group A had 1.65 1 0.08-mm bone loss mesially and 1.81 1 0.06 mm distally.
Group B had 0.31 1 0.05 mm mesially and 0.34 1 0.05 mm distally. C group implants experienced bone loss of 0.44 1
0.06 mm mesially and 0.47 1 0.07 mm distally. Differences between A and B, and A and C were significant both
mesially and distally, whereas differences between B and C were not significant mesially and distally
Treatment Planning 2000: An Esthetically Oriented Revision of the Original Implant Protocol
The purpose of this article is to outline the blueprint for a comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment philosophy, designed for developing the foundation for optimal esthetics in implant therapy. In addition, the important synergistic relation of the osseous, gingival, and restorative triad in creating the esthetic profile is described. The need to enhance the individual components of this triad is emphasized as the basis for a revised implant protocol actualized for treating the complex partially…
Healing of Osseotite Implants- After 2 months
A growing number of clinical studies show that early (2 months) and immediate loading protocols may be predictable. However, they are based on clinical stability only. The aim of this case report was to document the osseointegration status of two Osseotite implants after 2 months of healing in soft bone corresponding to type IV and subjected to two distinct mechanical environments. A completely edentulous patient received a total of 11 Osseotite implants in the mandible. Six were immediately loaded…

Immediate implant placement of tooth #7.
Implant Abutment Design and Selection
Dr. Gehrke outlines the impact of abutment design and selection on developing esthetic peri-implant soft tissue outcomes.
Flap Management and Site Preparation in Anterior Bone Augmentation - Part 1 of 2
Dr. Howard Gluckman outlines his decision making on incision design and flap management in preparation for anterior osseous augmentation in conjunction with implant placement.
CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry
Insights, Trends & Controversies in Implant Dentistry - Part 2 of 4
In this second 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.
Immediacy in Implant Dentistry
This lecture covers the integrated management of the immediate treatments that patients ask during consultation, using many clinical cases. It covers topics such as regeneration, surgical and prosthetic approach of the aesthetic zone, as well as immediate loading of single and full upper arch cases involving computer guided surgery.
