Summary:

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 implant placement, and 8 patients, accounting for 52 implants, were rehabilitated the day after surgery. All patients were rehabilitated by a hybrid prosthesis supported by 5 to 6 Osseotite implants. Two implants failed in the group of patients who had their implants loaded the same day (96.9% success rate), whereas 1 implant failed in the other group (98.1% success rate). The overall implant success rate was 97.4%. All failures occurred within 2 months of function. No other complication was reported. The mean follow-up for this interim report was 37.8616.5 months (range 8–65 months). Crestal bone loss was similar to that reported for standard delayed loading protocols. The results of this study suggest that the rehabilitation of the edentulous lower jaw by an immediate occlusally loaded implantsupported hybrid prosthesis is equally successful when loading is applied the same day or the day after implant placement. Immediate loading with 5 to 6 implant-supported prostheses represents a viable alternative treatment to classic delayed loading protocols.

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…

Zirconia Implants in the Age of 3D Imaging: An Alternative Therapy for Aesthetics and Function
Computer Guiding dental implants provides perfect positioning for mechanics and cosmetic results. The advantages provided by the implant selection utilizing interactive software libraries allows the implantologist to choose the best diameter, length and implant design for the specific surgical site. Zirconia implants can be computer guided and planned with interactive software and will provide enhanced aesthetic results as well as top gingival health due to the multiple advantages of zirconia. The purpose of this lecture is to describe an alternative procedure to computer guide Zirconia Implants in the aesthetic zone and to manage the functional aspects related to loading and functional requirements for a long lasting stability of the case.

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.
