Timing of Loading and Effect of Micromotion on Bone
A significant no-load healing period is the generally accepted prerequisite for osseointegration in dental implantology. The aim of this article was to examine whether this no-load healing period is validated by the experimental literature. In vivo histological data was scrutinized to identify the effect of early loading protocols on the bone-implant interface. Several loading modes were identified. They were categorized into groups according to implant design and the type of prosthetic reconstruction,…
Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.
Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives in all of medical science. Advances in the surgical and prosthetic components, implant designs and surface technologies, and imaging techniques have allowed for significant modifications to occur with respect to one- and two-stage surgical protocols, accelerating treatment times to the benefit of patient and clinician. This article presents a technique to improve surgical and restorative accuracy, allowing for predictable placement and immediate loading of implants through use of CT imaging, stereolithographic models, and CT-derived surgical templates.
A Case of Missing Lateral Incisors Part 1
Garber & Salama treat a patient missing #7 & #10.
Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches. The relative pros and cons when comparing the fixed vs removable prosthetic treatment can be very significant. This presentation will rationalize the treatment options available and demonstrate the advantages of the unsplinted full maxillary arch overdenture design.
Immediate Molar Replacement Utilizing Narrow Diameter Implants - Allowing Implant Placement in Almost Any Situation - Part 1 of 2
Immediate molar placement has been widely reported in the literature with excellent results. All the studies insist that a wide diameter implants are essential as they are the only way to achieve primary stability and are the only implants that can handle the forces that molar regions produce. But there are a number of problems with wide diameter implants. This presentation will dispel all these myths as well as show how narrow diameter implants can not only handle the forces but also make immediate molar placement more predictable and possible in almost all scenarios.
The Central-Lateral Replacement Dilemma in Esthetic Implant Dentistry: Clinical Alternatives & Case Management
This presentation puts an emphasis on identifying the risk factors to successful esthetic outcomes specific to multiple adjacent tooth replacement within the Esthetic Zone. Specifically, the challenges to replacement of adjacent Maxillary Lateral and Central Incisors will be highlighted as well as developing appropriate solutions to overcoming them.
A clear blueprint will be outlined which will incorporate digital and biomaterial technology synergistically with advanced surgical protocols to overcome esthetic challenges and predictably achieve successful results. In addition, specific guidelines for the utilization of new regenerative products will be outlined as well as new technologies and applications for future enhancement.
Brilliant Implant Esthetics - Innovative Soft-Tissue Shaping and Prosthetic Socket Preservation
This presentation will demonstrate a workflow for oral surgeons, prosthodontists and dental technicians to achieve a predictable midfacial soft tissue level by an effective and atraumatic protocol.
Zirconia Implants in the Age of 3D Imaging: An Alternative Therapy for Aesthetics and Function
Computer Guiding dental implants provides perfect positioning for mechanics and cosmetic results. The advantages provided by the implant selection utilizing interactive software libraries allows the implantologist to choose the best diameter, length and implant design for the specific surgical site. Zirconia implants can be computer guided and planned with interactive software and will provide enhanced aesthetic results as well as top gingival health due to the multiple advantages of zirconia.
The purpose of this lecture is to describe an alternative procedure to computer guide Zirconia Implants in the aesthetic zone and to manage the functional aspects related to loading and functional requirements for a long lasting stability of the case.
