Periodontally Considerations of Dental Implantology
<p>The endosseous dental implant has steadily progressed to become an important modality of restoring incomplete dentitions in either fully or partially edentulous patients. Osseointegrated dental implants have demonstrated relatively high success rates in both the maxillary and the mandibular jaws. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the American Dental Association (ADA), and numerous other professional organizations have endorsed the placement of osseointegrated dental implants as…
Facial Development, Continuous Tooth Eruption, and Mesial Drift as Compromising Factors for Implant Placement
The replacement of teeth lost by children because of trauma can be an important indication for early implant therapy. Osseointegrated dental implants, like ankylosed teeth, alter position as growth-related changes occur within the jawbones (displacement, remodeling, mesial drift). Facial growth of the child and even of the adolescent, as well as the continuous eruption of the adjacent anterior teeth, create significant risk of a less favorable esthetic and/or functional outcome. For patients with…
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.
Parameters for Integration of Aesthetics and Function with Implant Therapy
In this detailed lecture, Dr. Sergio Rubinstein takes a clinician’s view on what are the important factors that must be considered to successfully integrate implants into everyday practice.
4D Concept and Immediate Implant Placement
Dr. Funato lectures for the JIADS group at the Team Atlanta Training Center.
From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.
Insights, Trends & Controversies in Implant Dentistry - Part 3 of 4
In this third of a 4 part series, Dr. Dennis Tarnow shares insights into new trends, developments and controversies in implant dentistry. In this section, Dr. Tarnow discusses important topics related to implantitis, the gap, one-abutment/one-time, implant surfaces and design to name just a few.
Alveolar Ridge Regenerative Strategies: Autogenous Bone vs BMP-2
This clinical based presentation will compare the use of autogenous bone vs BMP-2 for alveolar ridge reconstruction. The science, indications, advantages and disadvantages of each approach will be featured. Single tooth to full arch reconstruction cases will also be shown along with understanding the application of non-resorbable vs resorbable mesh barriers for alveolar ridge reconstruction.
Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional - The Penn Protocol
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition for sub-optimal esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly; including scenarios where tooth preservation may be the preferred alternative. Provided that an immediate implant placement and provisionalization technique is utilized, single tooth implant sites without soft or hard tissue defects offer the most potential for predictable esthetic outcomes. This presentation will feature a comprehensive description of the protocol currently utilized at the University of Pennsylvania’s Periodontal Prosthesis program, including a discussion of the treatment rationale and technique considerations.
