Immediate Total Tooth Replacement
David Garber, DMD;Maurice Salama, DMD;Henry Salama, DMD
Socket Preservation to Gain
Tooth loss not only poses difficulty in mastication, it also involves the probable resorption of alveolar bone due to a loss of function and stimulation from the periodontal ligament fibers (PDL). Bone grafting at the time of tooth removal provides bone quantity and quality for future placement of dental implant(s). The challenge during this procedure—referred to as socket preservation—is maintaining the graft in place as well as providing a final working area with sufficient keratinized tissue…
Maintaining Dental Implants
Implant dentistry has become an important treatment regimen in restorative dentistry since outcome predictability became very well-established and recognized for long-term dental implant and restoration success. The increasing number of patients selecting dental implants as a treatment option presents the dental team with the challenge of maintaining these sometimes complex restorations. This article will help the reader to understand the similarity and differences in the periodontal structure…

New Generation of Customized Titanium Membranes for Achieving Predictable Buccal Bone Regeneration Every Time
Stable soft tissue can only be maintained over the long term if there is adequate buccal bone. Achieving this bone can be unpredictable at times. The grafted bone requires space maintenance along with graft stability in order to allow angiogenesis to reach all the bone that is being grafted as well as enough time for the bone conversion process to occur. This short video presents of an extremely simple technique using a titanium membrane that can be used with most implant types to create stable buccal bone. It also goes through the criteria for successful bone regeneration and how to implement them.
All-On-Four Protocol - The Technique and Reality
Dr. Duello will focus on the specific clinical technique of the All On Four procedure. The webinar will introduce the indications, clinical exams, and pre-surgical preparations for All On Four.
Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.
Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction
In this presentation, the author concentrated on the ridge-split procedure (RSP) as a form of a ridge modification (widening or augmentation), the technique that offers many possibilities and has many advantages in oral pre-prosthetic implant reconstruction. There are many modifications of the RSP. This presentation is a description of classical ridge-split procedure in maxilla and mandible that has been successfully employed for many years in author’s surgical practice.
