Summary:

Alveolar ridge augmentation using autogenous block grafts is a predictable method to augment localized alveolar ridge defects for implant placement. Large atrophic edentulous segments present a more challenging scenario in reconstruction,because there is a limited supply of intraoral donor bone. Extraoral donor sites are an option, but present an obstacle to patient treatment acceptability because of increased costs and morbidity. The purpose of this case study was to evaluate the effectiveness of using particulate human mineralized allograft in combination with an intraoral cortical block graft, in a “tenting” fashion, to augment large intraoral alveolar ridge defects for implant placement.

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.

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants
When treatment with dental implants is indicated, an accurate diagnosis must be made to evaluate the clinical parameters and determine the optimal time for immediate or delayed (ie, early or late) implant placement and loading following tooth extraction. It is also important to identify complications and their implications on the aesthetic outcome.1 This article explains behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant, evaluates the timing of implant placement after extraction, and reviews various parameters that influence tissue marginal remodeling.

Immediate Occlusal Loading of Osseotite Implants in the Lower Edentulous Jaw
<b>Objective:</b> This paper reports the results of a prospective multicenter clinical study on immediately fully occlusally loaded full-arch screw-retained prostheses with distal extensions (hybrid prostheses) supported by Osseotite implants inserted in edentulous lower jaws. <b>Method and material:</b> Sixty-two patients were enrolled in four clinical centers. Three hundred and twenty-five Osseotite implants were inserted and occlusally loaded according to an immediate loading protocol. The temporary…

Implant Dentistry: The Team Approach
In this lecture Dr Stanley will present his "No Half Smiles” Philosophy and how an effective treatment plan and its correct team approach can help save time and stress. For over a decade Dr Stanley and is interdisciplinary team have been working together as a tight unit on complex cases. From the old school approach to the latest DSD surgical planning, with combined Endodontics, Orthodontics and cosmetic implant dentistry, the cases presented will show how his team approaches each individual case for optimal outcome. In this lecture a lot of “behind the scenes” explanations will be given on the why, how and what his team do to get consistent excellent results and manage a stress free environment in his practice.

The Changing Paradigm of Digital Implant Dentistry: Today’s Technology and Tomorrow’s Concepts - Part 1 of 2
Digital technology has revolutionized implant dentistry but not without frustration. Recent advances with hardware, software, and materials now present integrated solutions for the implant team through planning, placement, and restoration. Single implant treatment will be presented for every-day practice, as well as more advanced partial and fully-edentulous techniques. The most efficient and precise workflows through Keystone and its industry partners will give you concrete digital solutions ready for implementation in your practice. At the conclusion of the lecture the speaker will define some different “team structures” for how the surgeon, dentist, and lab could invest in technology and work together.

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know Premium Member Content

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches. The relative pros and cons when comparing the fixed vs removable prosthetic treatment can be very significant. This presentation will rationalize the treatment options available and demonstrate the advantages of the unsplinted full maxillary arch overdenture design.

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Mandible Edentulism: All On Four For The Mandible
Mandibular edentulous patients can be some of the most difficult prosthetic patients to treat successfully. Treatment options for the mandibular arch range from two implants and an overdenture to multiple implants with full arch fixed style prosthesis. This webinar will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures utilizing four implants and a screw retained fixed prosthesis in the mandible, the All On Four technique. 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 mandible.

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits
Modern technology can dramatically cut the time and number of visits for a complex implant case while greatly improving the precision of the final result. The great advantage of the processes shown in this presentation is that the clinician retains full control of precision implant placement, emergence profile development and the construction and aesthetics of the final rehabilitation.
