Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives in all of medical science. Advances in the surgical and prosthetic components, implant designs and surface technologies, and imaging techniques have allowed for significant modifications to occur with respect to one- and two-stage surgical protocols, accelerating treatment times to the benefit of patient and clinician. This article presents a technique to improve surgical and restorative accuracy, allowing for predictable placement and immediate loading of implants through use of CT imaging, stereolithographic models, and CT-derived surgical templates.
Failure Causes,Timing, and Cluster Behavior:An 8-Year Study of Dental Implants
An implant-supported restoration offers a predictable treatment for tooth replacement. 1–3 Success rates for implants are high. Never the-less,failures that mandate implant removal do occur.This lengthens and complicates the treatment process, 3–7 as well as jeopardize the clinician’s efforts to accomplish satisfactory function and esthetics. For the patient,this usually involves further cost and additional procedures.
RevitaliZe Patient Solutions: preliminary results from a single cohort prospective study using Screw-Vent TSVT implants
The aim of this paper was to report preliminary results from a cohort of subjects treated with the
RevitaliZe Patient Solutions approach. Clinical and radiographic results of axial and tilted implants up to
fourteen months of loading are presented. Seven patients were followed up for an average
of 11,88 months (range 8-16 months). Five subjects received implant treatment in both arches, resulting in
12 restorations. A total of 48 fixtures were placed and no failure was reported
during the follow-up period, leading to 100% implant and prosthetic survival rates. Radiographic analysis after
6 months of loading was conducted for all prostheses. No significant difference in marginal bone loss was
found between tilted and axial implants in both jaws. The present preliminary data suggests that
immediate loading with RevitaliZe Patient Solutions could be considered a predictable and cost- and timeeffective
approach for the treatment of total edentulism.

Bone Augmentation and Implant Planning in a 3-D CBCT World
Don’t sit on the sidelines! Incorporate CBCT technology into your practice today for improved implant treatment planning, perio defect diagnostics, identification of perio-endo involvement, bone grafting evaluation, surgical guide fabrication and implant outcomes assessment. This presentation will highlight cases where CBCT unparalleled views positively affected diagnosis, treatment plans, outcomes and case acceptance.
Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional - The Penn Protocol
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition for sub-optimal esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly; including scenarios where tooth preservation may be the preferred alternative. Provided that an immediate implant placement and provisionalization technique is utilized, single tooth implant sites without soft or hard tissue defects offer the most potential for predictable esthetic outcomes. This presentation will feature a comprehensive description of the protocol currently utilized at the University of Pennsylvania’s Periodontal Prosthesis program, including a discussion of the treatment rationale and technique considerations.
Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
This presentation looks critically at the literature and attempts to give clinicians a more flexible approach to immediate and delayed implant placement. Critical surgical guidelines and clinical pearls will be offered for both types of treatment as well as the management of some of the complications that may arise from immediate or delayed implant placement.
Zirconia Based Implant Supported Restorations: Planning and Design
Emphasis will be placed on demonstrating the different restorative options utilizing fixed detachable restorations made of monolithic zirconia, where 100% of the prostheses is zirconia.
