Summary:

Background: There is limited information about two-part implants placed in subcrestal positions. The aim of this study is to retrospectively evaluate the 1-year outcome of implants placed non-submerged and in a subcrestal position. Methods: Records of 50 consecutive partially edentulous patients restored with dental implants were reviewed. For each implant, radiographs from the surgical appointment were compared to those from the 1-year follow-up visit and evaluated regarding: 1) the degree of subcrestal positioning of the implant, 2) changes of marginal hard tissue height over time, and 3) if the marginal hard tissue could be detected on the implant platform at the follow-up visit. Results: The overall survival rate from baseline to the last recorded follow-up visit was 100%. At the surgery, the implants were placed, on average, 1.37 mm (mesial) and 1.28mm(distal) subcrestally. The mean marginal loss of hard tissues was 0.11 – 0.30 mm. There were no statistical significant differences regarding the loss of marginal hard tissues between mesial and distal surfaces or the maxilla versus the mandible. There was no statistical significant correlation regarding the degree of subcrestal implant position and loss of marginal mineralized hard tissue (r = 0.15; P >0.05). The mineralized hard tissue on the implant shoulder was found in 69% of the implants at the 1-year follow-up visit. Conclusions: The present study reported a minimal loss of mineralized hard tissue around dental implants placed non-submerged and at subcrestal positions. In addition, these implants had hard tissue healing that extended onto the implant shoulders on most of the observed implants.

Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series
When immediate implant placement is considered for teeth with close proximity to the sinus floor, apical extension of the osteotomy is significantly limited, and often a staged approach is used. Implant placement into fresh extraction sockets and sinus floor manipulation using bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation with implant placement are techniques most often used independently or sequentially. In this care report, immediate implant placement with simultaneous osteotome sinus floor elevation is an advantageous combination of two successfully used techniques. This combined approach can significantly reduce the treatment time for implant therapy in teeth with close sinus proximity and provide the operator with the ability to place implants of desired length.

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation

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.

Immediate Occlusal Loading the Same Day or Day After Implant Placement

Immediate Occlusal Loading the Same Day or Day After Implant Placement
Immediate loading of endosseous implants is becoming a widespread therapeutic procedure for the rehabilitation of patients with edentulous jaws. The purpose of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the long-term success rate of endosseous implants placed in the edentulous lower jaw and loaded on either the same day of surgery or the next day. Nineteen patients were enrolled in the study. Eleven patients, accounting for 64 implants, received their provisional prosthesis the same day of…

New Generation of Customized Titanium Membranes for Achieving Predictable Buccal Bone Regeneration Every Time
Stable soft tissue can only be maintained over the long term if there is adequate buccal bone. Achieving this bone can be unpredictable at times. The grafted bone requires space maintenance along with graft stability in order to allow angiogenesis to reach all the bone that is being grafted as well as enough time for the bone conversion process to occur. This short video presents of an extremely simple technique using a titanium membrane that can be used with most implant types to create stable buccal bone. It also goes through the criteria for successful bone regeneration and how to implement them.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

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. In particular when treating the fully edentulous maxilla, the challenges with a full arch fixed prosthesis can be formidable. This presentation will rationalize the treatment options available and demonstrate the advantages of the unsplinted full maxillary arch overdenture design.

Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground? Premium Member Content

Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: The two camps in this debate are both adamant that their technique is the best and that theirs will give the patients the best long term aesthetic result. Is the literature and available data definitive on this matter? Is the choice really clear for clinicians? 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.
