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.
Influence of a Nanometer-Scale Surface Enhancement on De Novo Bone Formation on Titanium Implants
In this prospective randomized controlled clinical study, small titanium implants were placed in posterior maxillae for the purpose of assessing the rate and extent of new bone development. Nine pairs of site evaluation implants were placed in posterior areas of maxillae and retrieved with trephine drills after 4 or 8 weeks of unloaded healing. The amount of bone in linear contact (%) with the implant surface was used to determine the osteoconductive potential of the implant surface. Implant surfaces…
Implant Placement in the Posterior Mandible in Combination with Titanium Mesh and PRGF for Horizontal Bone Augmentation
Simultaneous implant placement and titanium mesh are utilized with mineralized irradiated bone allograft and PRGF to augment the deficient ridge form.

What Tissue Changes Can We Expect with Anterior Implant Therapy?
Minimizing soft tissue changes following anterior implant therapy is one of the holy grails in implant dentistry. Gingival recession will not only impact the patient’s esthetics, the difficulties in correcting such problem create further challenges to the clinicians.
This presentation will focus on how much soft tissue changes can be expected following implant in the esthetic zone. Discussion will be made as to the etiology of gingival recession and what we can do to prevent it from happening.
Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal
To date, enhancement to implant surface technology has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Trabecular Metal has changed all that. This is because Trabecular Metal allows for true bone 'in-growth' rather than just on-growth. This webinar will highlight, in detail, this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols. In addition, techniques for immediate provisionalization of this implant will also be covered in an accompanying surgical video.
Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.
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.
