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.
Socket Preservation to Gain
Tooth loss not only poses difficulty in mastication, it also involves the probable resorption of alveolar bone due to a loss of function and stimulation from the periodontal ligament fibers (PDL). Bone grafting at the time of tooth removal provides bone quantity and quality for future placement of dental implant(s). The challenge during this procedure—referred to as socket preservation—is maintaining the graft in place as well as providing a final working area with sufficient keratinized tissue…
Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants 2
Implant therapy is a predictable method of replacing lost teeth and involves consideration of numerous surgical and restorative criteria. Part I of this article explained the behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant and reviewed various parameters that influence tissue remodeling. Part II emphasizes surgical factors (eg, tridimensional implant placement, platelet-rich fibrin, and the use of connective tissue grafts) and restorative factors as means of limiting soft tissue recession around implants.
Implant Therapy and Esthetic Considerations - Extraction and Guided Bone and Soft Tissue Augmentation - Part 1 of 6
Dr. Maurice Salama describes the step-by-step surgical techniques required to ensure successful Guided bone as well as soft tissue enhancement of a deficient extraction site.
Do Implant Restorations Compare to Natural Teeth?
Reconstruction of Large Post-Extraction Defects within the Esthetic Zone
Dr. Miguel Stanley discusses the reconstruction of large post-extraction defects within the esthetic zone involving both bone and soft tissue deficiencies.
Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.
Why CBCT Guided Implant Surgery & Treatment Planning for Your Patients: A Restorative Roadmap to Success
This presentation will discuss the advantages of using cbct, accuracy of guided surgery, and advantages of guided implant surgery to help achieve a predictable result for a patient driven treatment.
All-On-Four Protocol - The Technique and Reality
Dr. Duello will focus on the specific clinical technique of the All On Four procedure. The webinar will introduce the indications, clinical exams, and pre-surgical preparations for All On Four.
