Improving Implant Framework
Passive fit of implant frameworks is related in part to the accuracy of the mastercast. A method of fabricating a verification stent to check the accuracy of the master cast prior to waxing and casting the implant framework is discussed. The methods utilize routinely available materials and do not require any special instrumentation or equipment. The stent can be fabricated either by the laboratory or the dentist.
A New Implant Design for Crestal Bone Preservation: Initial Observations and Case Report
Following the exposure and restoration of two-piece dental implants, some change in the vertical level of the peri-implant crestal bone height has been reported. This change in crestal bone height has not, however, negatively impacted long-term implant success. This article describes how the concept of platform switching is incorporated into a new implant design as a means of reducing or eliminating the occurrence of crestal bone loss. Preliminary observations from clinicians utilizing this new implant design are herein presented.
Immediate Occlusal Loading of Osseotite Implants in the Lower Edentulous Jaw
<b>Objective:</b> This paper reports the results of a prospective multicenter clinical study on immediately fully occlusally loaded full-arch screw-retained prostheses with distal extensions (hybrid prostheses) supported by Osseotite implants inserted in edentulous lower jaws. <b>Method and material:</b> Sixty-two patients were enrolled in four clinical centers. Three hundred and twenty-five Osseotite implants were inserted and occlusally loaded according to an immediate loading protocol. The temporary…

Socket Shield and ‘Image Guided Planning’:Single Step Implantoprosthetic Approach
This video shows a digital flow chart of an 'Image guided planning'.
This procedure enables the abutment and provisional production and accurate surgical stent.
A 'single step procedure' allows the immediate implant, custom abutment & provisional placement.
The socket shield together with one abutment one time may give more predictability to the healing phase planned in advance.

CBCT 3D Imaging: Advanced Applications and Beyond
In this interactive webinar Dr. Rami Gamil compares 2D to 3D imaging modalities, CBCT to Fan Beam CT, outlines the basics of 2D MPR navigation through axial, coronal and sagittal sections in CBCT datasets, flythroughs and the techniques of 3D visualization including MIP (Maximum intensity projection) and VR (Volume Rendering) to be able to visualize soft tissue, airways, bone, lesions, impacted teeth, implants, surgical plates, root canal treatments which gives the clinician indispensable tools in his diagnostic armamentarium to be able to efficiently interpret, diagnose and plan taking the guesswork out of this equation.
The Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge: Rationalization & Multiple Case Examples
In this presentation Dr Tischler will review the rationalization of the Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge from Zirkonzahn and demonstrate it's success with multiple case examples. In 2012 Dr Tischler's practice and Tischler Dental Laboratory was prolific in providing the Prettau Implant Bridge for patients and clients of the lab. Through case examples he will show the parameters of success with this ideal implant prosthetic product. Both surgical and prosthetic steps will be shown.
Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded.
Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.
