Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.
Maintaining Dental Implants
Implant dentistry has become an important treatment regimen in restorative dentistry since outcome predictability became very well-established and recognized for long-term dental implant and restoration success. The increasing number of patients selecting dental implants as a treatment option presents the dental team with the challenge of maintaining these sometimes complex restorations. This article will help the reader to understand the similarity and differences in the periodontal structure…
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.
Biologic Considerations for Immediate Placement and Immediate Loading
Dr. Georgios Romanos presents the research and clinical data that has prompted the successful utilization of immediate implant placement and immediate loading in a variety of settings.
i-Gen Titanium Mesh in Ridge Augmentation Simultaneous with Implant Placement
IN THIS VIDEO Dr Moghaddas will demonstrate ridge augmentation utilizing new type of titanium mesh design(i-Gen) simultaneous with implant placement and also discuss about options that we may have for doing this type of procedures.
Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy
This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.
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.
Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials.
These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.
The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.
