Summary:

To date, there have been no studies on the outcome of osseointegration of alveolar bone around dental implants inserted with piezoelectric osteotomy versus conventional osteotomy. The aim of this study was to compare the radiographic differences, through evaluation of peri-implant bone density, between implant insertion using traditional surgical technique and piezoelectric technique. Forty patients were selected whose treatment consisted of a minimum of two implants placed in nonpathologic native bone. A single type of implant surface (SLA) was chosen. The implants were placed following the manufacturer protocol for traditional surgical technique and piezoelectric technique. Radiographs were taken following surgery and 30, 60, and 90 days after surgery. The bone density was studied with the densitometry application. All patients completed the study period with success. Despite a limited number of treated patients, the results of this pilot study demonstrated that piezoelectric implant site preparation promotes better bone density and osteogenesis, and the piezoelectric technique is predictable, with a 100% success rate in this study.

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed long-term success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient. Along with the many benefits of added predictability and enhanced options, the ever-evolving role of osseointegrated implants in the treatment pf the partially edentulous jaw has also created new challenged. Unlike the fully edentulous individual who maintains the implant-restorative interface beyond the lip perimeter, many partially edentulous patients undergo the transition within the esthetic zone.

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.

3D Immediate Transformation of The Fully Edentulous Patient
Immediate loading of threaded dental implants with fixed restorations has been a documented treatment modality for more than 20 years. In that time, materials, surgical protocols, treatment methods and restorative options have evolved so that these procedures can be now be considered routine and predictable. The original protocols required an abundant number of implants in large volumes of dense bone, laborious provisional restorations and expensive precious metal based final prosthesis. Current methods permit treatment of patients with limited bone, streamlined provisionalization methods, and new materials and technology to provide predictable and efficient solutions. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the key principles required for successful immediate loading of fully edentulous patients. It will also demonstrate some of the newer concepts and materials and options for efficient and routine treatment.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

Ceramic Dental Implants in Everyday Practice
One-piece Zirconia Oxide implants can overcome the problems we associate with two-piece and one-piece titanium root form implants. It will be shown how this treatment option is no longer “experimental” and that the Zirconia Oxide material used in the CeraRoot implants shows excellent ability to osseointegrate, is phenomenally strong, and provides a soft tissue profile and health around the implants that rivals natural teeth. This presentation will make you rethink your titanium armamentarium. You will see a way to provide your patients with an ideal tooth replacement option. An implant that looks like a tooth, restores like a tooth, and has the periodontal health that rivals that of a tooth without the fear of screw loosening, metal showing, and Peri-implantitis caused by subgingival connections.
