Summary:

Objective: 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. Method and material: 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 prosthesis was delivered 4 h from surgery. The final prosthesis was delivered after 6 months. Marginal bone loss was monitored from periapical radiographs using a computerized technique. Results: Two implants failed to integrate within 2 months of occlusal loading. A cumulative implant success rate of 99.4% was achieved for a period of 12–60 months postplacement (mean 28.6714.1 (SD) months). Crestal bone loss around the immediately loaded implants was similar to that reported for standard delayed loading protocols. Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible by an immediate occlusally loaded hybrid prosthesis supported by five to six Osseotite implants represents a viable alternative treatment to classic delayed loading protocols.

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.

Bio-Surgery; Tips for More Biological and Prosthodontic Approach
In oral rehabilitation, obtaining a good aesthetic outcome is no longer enough for our patients. It is imperative that these good results do prevail in time. The best way to achieve this goal, is to correctly diagnose each individual clinical case, and to choose Biological tools and Biological treatment techniques, that respect our own physiology and Nature. Through this lecture, the authors try to share a few Surgical and Prosthodontic Bio-tips in Implant Dentistry, that in a simple and predictable way, can lead us to a great long lasting aesthetic results.

CBCT 3D Imaging: Advanced Applications and Beyond
In this interactive webinar Dr. Rami Gamil compares 2D to 3D imaging modalities, CBCT to Fan Beam CT, outlines the basics of 2D MPR navigation through axial, coronal and sagittal sections in CBCT datasets, flythroughs and the techniques of 3D visualization including MIP (Maximum intensity projection) and VR (Volume Rendering) to be able to visualize soft tissue, airways, bone, lesions, impacted teeth, implants, surgical plates, root canal treatments which gives the clinician indispensable tools in his diagnostic armamentarium to be able to efficiently interpret, diagnose and plan taking the guesswork out of this equation. Also taking a look into advanced findings related to the TMJ, calcification of Stylohyoid complex, implant complications, fractures and endodontic cases, highlighting the added values of using low dose 3D CBCT scanners for the clinicians.

The Changing Paradigm of Digital Implant Dentistry: Today’s Technology and Tomorrow’s Concepts - Part 2 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.
