Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental
implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and
current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by
utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable,
titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure
optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the
rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.
Workshop Guidelines on Immediate Loading in Implant Dentistry
Predictable formation of a direct bone-to implant interface is a treatment goal in implant dentistry. The 2-stage surgical protocol established by Branemark et al to accomplish osseointegration consisted of several prerequisites, including (1) countersinking the implant below the crestal bone, (2) obtaining and maintaining a soft-tissue covering over the implant for 3 to 6 months, and (3) maintaining a minimally loaded implant environment for 3 to 6 months. The primary reasons cited for the submerged,…

Extraction Site Micro-gap and Treatment Options in Implant Therapy
Extraction site management with special emphasis on the biology and clinical treatment options of the micro-gap.
The 10 Year Evolution of Guided Surgery, What We Have Learned From our First Patients
The initial NobelGuide protocol was developed and completed in 2003 for the first series of treated North American edentulous patients. The 10-year clinical results from this initial patient group treated with implant placement and immediate loading via a fixed prosthesis, now provides insights into what have we learned from the evolution of guided implant treatments to ensure and improve surgical and prosthodontic treatment outcomes.
Implant Overdentures – Part 1 of 2
We all know the problems associated with conventional complete dentures (especially mandibular denture) in terms of reduced denture bearing area post resorption thereby having compromised retention and stability.
A Defined Algorithm for Regenerative Success Part 2
These presentations will focus open the above concepts but prioritize the diagnostic phase and surgical common denominators required for a successful regenerative outcome. Flap design, space maintenance, bone and membrane selections and tension free closure provides the template for all the new age materials and technologies to be successful in clinical practice. The three-dimensional reconstruction of the implant receptor site comprises two distinct phases: Regeneration and Bioengineering of the Hard Tissues Reconstruction and Development of the Soft Tissues This program will cover Site Development and Optimal Regenerative Technologies and Techniques in Implant Dentistry both prior to and at the time of implant placement.
Cad Cam Technologies to Restore a Case on Natural Dentition & Implant
Dr Agnini will describe various clinical options and techniques for efficiently and esthetically fabricating a temporary restoration immediately after implant placement in the replacement of a single tooth.
Insights, Trends & Controversies in Implant Dentistry - Part 2 of 4
In this second 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.
