Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants
As patient demand increases for more natural restorations in the esthetic zone, clinicians must have the highest level of skill and knowledge to maintain or reform the interdental papilla between teeth, between implants and teeth, and between adjacent implants. To date, there are no reports that have measured the distance from the contact point to the bony crest between implants. One reason for this may be the fact that, with two adjacent implants, the contact point of the crown can be established at any distance from the gingival margin according to the restorative dentist's specifications. Therefore, in this study, the height of the soft tissue to the crest of bone was measured between two adjacent implants independent of the location of the contact point. The purpose of this study was to determine the range and average height of tissue between two adjacent implants.
Instrumentation for Modern Day Implant Surgery
Public awareness of the aesthetic possibilities through the replacement of missing or nonsalvageable teeth has been elevated with advances in dental implant therapy and related hard and soft tissue regenerative therapies. This has led to an increase in the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by either natural teeth, dental implants, or removable prostheses anchored by implants rather than conventional tissue- or tooth-supported partial dentures.
A new tip of the week!
Digital 3D CBCT in Otimizing Esthetic Implant Therapy – Part 1
Dr. Maurice Salama discusses the utilization of imaging technology and virtual treatment planning to more effectively deliver predictable and efficacious implant therapy.
4D Concept and Immediate Implant Placement
Dr. Funato lectures for the JIADS group at the Team Atlanta Training Center.
Immediate Implant Provisionalization: A Critical Aspect in Tissue Care and Esthetics-Part 2
Tissue support, emergence profile and The provisional restoration phase of implant therapy has become one of the most critical steps in immediate or delayed placement for several reasons. A step-by-step protocol will be presented in how to fabricate the proper screw-retained provisional restoration from the fabrication of the acrylic shell to managing and capturing the proper supportive subgingival contour.
CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry
All-On-Four Implant Protocol - Fad or Phenomena
This webinar with Dr. George Duello and Dr. Maurice Salma 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.
