Implant Prosthodontic Procedures for a Completely Edentulous Patient with a Cleft Palate
Cleft lip and palate maxillofacial prosthodontics is evolving and re-defining treatment approaches via the use of dental implants. A case report is presented demonstrating the use of the sinus lift procedure originally described by Tatum, the placement of osseointegrated root-form implants, and an implant-supported and -retained maxillofacial prosthesis.
Histologic Effect of Pure-Phase Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate on Bone Regeneration in Human Artificial Jawbone Defects
The effect of the pure-phase beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) Cerasorb on
bone regeneration was evaluated in hollow titanium cylinders implanted in the
posterior jaws of five volunteers.
Dental Implants: Oral Hygine & Maintenance
Proper monitoring and maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity of the dental implant and its associated restoration through a combination of appropriate professional care and effective patient oral hygiene. Gregori M Kurtzman and Lee H Silverstein explain the protocols for the dental team.
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.
Timing of Implant Placement After Extraction in the Esthetic Zone
In this presentation, Dr. Daniel Buser outlines the most current scientific knowledge concerning the clinically relevant challenge of when and how to place implants after extraction of a tooth in the esthetic zone. He also gives an update on treatment options and tissue biology.
7 Ways to Improve Patient Care with 3D Implant Dentistry and Guided Surgery
Whether you are learning something new, or comparing notes, I look forward to sharing with you in this new age of digital dentistry. Join me for a discussion on the world of digital patient care. I will give you the tools to navigate and speak confidently with patients and other providers about 3D implant dentistry and guided surgery.
Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development.
A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented.
Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.
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.
Implant Esthetics: Recognizing Pitfalls and How to Avoid Problems
In this Webinar on Implant Esthetics, Dr Stanley describes the "No Half Smiles" philosophy that he practices. An emphasis is placed on both the clinical and technical requirements necessary for delivering consistent successful esthetic results in everyday practice. In addition, several techniques are demonstrated to make patient management through this process more efficient. As Dr. Stanley states" the challenges of getting it right are many but avoiding complications is vital to the success of our daily practice.
