Summary:

In recent years, the immediate loading of dental implants has become more accepted as a standard protocol for the treatment of the fully edentulous mandible. The pioneers in implant dentistry often tried this technique but only achieved mixed success. One of the main reasons for the failure of these early attempts was the lack of understanding of the biological and mechanical principles that we now know are necessary for clinical success.

Dental implants that are immediately loaded should be stable after insertion, and they should be rigidly splinted around the curvature of the arch. In addition, the provisional prosthesis should not be disturbed (if possible) during the healing process that occurs approximately two months after placement. These simple guidelines have allowed for the predictable treatment of many patients who would otherwise have had to wear their dentures during the healing period or even go without them during the initial postoperative period.

The following monograph is another step in the maturation of the immediate loading technique. The authors have outlined their technique for predictable loading of the edentulous mandible as well as the use of new components that make the procedure faster and more user-friendly for the patient and the treating team. They are to be complimented for taking on this project and using an evidence-based approach to support their techniques and definitions.

Treatment Planning 2000: An Esthetically Oriented Revision of the Original Implant Protocol
The purpose of this article is to outline the blueprint for a comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment philosophy, designed for developing the foundation for optimal esthetics in implant therapy. In addition, the important synergistic relation of the osseous, gingival, and restorative triad in creating the esthetic profile is described. The need to enhance the individual components of this triad is emphasized as the basis for a revised implant protocol actualized for treating the complex partially…

Systematic Review of Survival Rates for Immediately Loaded Dental Implants

Systematic Review of Survival Rates for Immediately Loaded Dental Implants
The primary goal of this paper was to determine the survival rate of immediately loaded (IL) dental implants based on a systematic review of the literature. Secondary goals were to determine the influence of several factors on the implant survival rate, such as the type of reconstruction, implant location, and implant surface characteristics. An electronic search of databases was performed, in addition to a hand search of the most relevant journals. All relevant articles were independently screened…

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement, Part 2. The Effects of Bone Grafting and Provisional Restoration on Peri-implant Soft Tissue Height & Thickness - A Retrospective Study

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement, Part 2. The Effects of Bone Grafting and Provisional Restoration on Peri-implant Soft Tissue Height & Thickness - A Retrospective Study
This article presents the results of evaluating the changes in peri-implant soft tissue dimensions associated with immediate implant placement into anterior post-extraction sockets for four treatment groups: no BGPR(bone graft, no provisional restoration), PR (no bone graft, provisional restoration), BG (bone graft, no provisional restoration), and BGPR (bone graft, provisional restoration). The vertical distance of the peri-implant soft tissue was greater for grafted sites than for non-grafted ones. The facial soft tissue thickness at the gingival third was greater for grafted than for non-grafted sites and for sites with provisional restorations compared to sites without them, respectively. The net gain in soft tissue height and thickness was about 1mm. The increases in vertical and horizontal dimensions for grafted sites were between 0.5 and 1.0mm, as compared to sites with no bone graft and no provisional restoration.

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. 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.

The Proof is in the Laboratory; A Maxillary Full Arch Implant Supported Zirconia Prettau Comparison
The FP-3 “Implant Supported Hybrid" has proven to be an exceptional and highly specialized treatment option for patients with non restorable teeth or existing edentulism. The use of zirconia provides the ultimate outcome bringing with it a new standard of esthetics, function and, when done well, a long lasting prosthesis. This presentation will stress the importance of treatment planning, CAD CAM technology, and the all important need for the laboratory technician’s human touch. Surgical aspects, provisonalization during healing, and management of soft tissue are important components. The protocol for final fabrication of the FP-3 all zirconia prosthesis is detailed along with a description of this exciting new technology.
