Immediate Loading of Osseotitie Implants-After 4 months
A growing number of clinical reports show that early and immediate loading of endosseous implants may lead to predictable osseointegration; however, these studies provide mostly short- to mid-term results based only on clinical mobility and radiographic observation. Other methods are needed to detect the possible presence of a thin fibrous interposition of tissue that could increase in the course of time and lead to clinical mobility. A histologic evaluation was performed on two immediately loaded…
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.
Cortical Tenting Grafting Technique in the Severely Atrophic Alveolar Ridge for Implant Site Preparation
Tenting of the periosteum and soft tissue matrix using a
cortical bone block maintains space and minimizes resorption of the particulate allograft volume. In addition,bridging the cortical blocks with particulate bone avoids unaesthetic ridge defects between cortical block grafts in larger ridge defects. The result was
a more uniform and esthetic alveolar ridge, capable of maintaining an implant-supported prosthesis. The
technique offers predictable functional
and esthetic reconstruction of large volume defects without extensive amounts of autogenous bone. This of-
fers a superior functional and esthetic result than with either cortical or particulate grafting alone.
rhBMP-2 Infuse and Titanium Mesh Utilization for Horizontal Augmentation in the Maxillary Lateral Incisior Region
BMP-2, bone morphogenic protein and the concepts of GBR are featured in this case report.
Cross Disciplinary Approach to an Esthetic Dilemma

Stress Free Planning for a Complex Case
Complex treatment planning. How to get your best options across to your patients. In this presentation Dr Stanley and his team present a case that is not complex in its execution, but in its planning. Once you get the right formula down on paper you can save time, money and stress both for you, your team and most importantly your patient, and get great long lasting results.
Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: The two camps in this debate are both adamant that their technique is the best and that theirs will give the patients the best long term aesthetic result. Is the literature and available data definitive on this matter? Is the choice really clear for clinicians? This presentation looks critically at the literature and attempts to give clinicians a more flexible approach to immediate and delayed implant placement. Critical surgical guidelines and clinical pearls will be offered for both types of treatment as well as the management of some of the complications that may arise from immediate or delayed implant placement.

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.
