The Replacement of Small-Diameter Teeth in the Esthetic Zone Using Narrow-Diameter Implants
The lack of bone available for the surgeon
as well as the lack of restorative space available
between the adjacent teeth makes tooth
replacement with implants challenging

Immediate Rehabilitation of the Completely Edentulous Jaw with a Fixed Prostheses Supported by Implants
The aims of this study were to assess the treatment outcome of immediately loaded full-arch screw-retained prostheses with distal extensions supported by both upright and tilted implants for the rehabilitation of edentulous jaws and to compare the outcomes of upright versus tilted implants.
The Use of an Extraoral Verification Template for Dental Implant Supported Prosthesis
This article demonstrates the utilization of a preprosthetic extraoral verification template that could be used to ensure the accuracy of the master cast from which the laboratory working model is used as the in vitro foundation for the implant-supported prosthesis framework construction.
Interdisciplinary TX Planning in the Esthetic Zone
How Communication among specialists is imperative to great esthetic results.
Clinical Procedures to Control Tissue Esthetics in Implant Dentistry
The demand for creating esthetic restorations has become a consistent theme in dental literature and in daily clinical practice. Surgical concepts that are emphasized as important to the esthetic outcome include resective procedures to change bone volume and levels, as well as additive procedures such as tissue grafting to alter the biotype and volume around teeth and implants. Predominately with implant treatment, today's surgical and restorative strategies play an important role in post-extractive tissue guidance, mandating precise surgical techniques, and emphasizing cooperation and coordination between the surgical and restorative team members. This webinar will explore some of the complications of treatment, underscoring the responsibility of the surgical and restorative teams to critically assess emerging treatment concepts, materials and techniques.
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.
Immediacy in Implant Dentistry
This lecture covers the integrated management of the immediate treatments that patients ask during consultation, using many clinical cases. It covers topics such as regeneration, surgical and prosthetic approach of the aesthetic zone, as well as immediate loading of single and full upper arch cases involving computer guided surgery.
Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.
Current Concepts in Immediate Implants
Immediate implants have several advantages over traditional phased implant placement. Shortened treatment time and a single surgical procedure are among some of these benefits. Although the surgical techniques can be more challenging, immediate implants can be a predictable treatment modality in both the esthetic zone and molar sites.
This presentation will discuss immediate implant placement and temporization in the esthetic zone as well as immediate replacement of molar sites using regular platform implants. More advanced technical procedures, including simultaneous sinus augmentation and guided bone regeneration will also be discussed.
