The ABC Protocol in the Esthetic Zone: A Comprehensive Surgical & Prosthetic Approach
the purpose of this article is to present a surgical and restorative protocol for the replacement of missing teeth in the esthetic zone. The ABC protocol consists of digitally guided implantation, autogenous bone graft, followed by bovine bone xenograft and connective tissue graft. Autogenous bone is placed in contact with the implant surface to induce osseointegration; bovine bone xenograft is then applied to augment the ridge dimension and provide long-term stability. Connective tissue is used to provide additional volume. The ABC biomaterial sequence offers favorable hard and soft tissue dimensions and immediate provisional restoration predictably leads to an esthetically pleasing definitive prosthesis.
Dental Implants: Oral Hygeine and Maintenace
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.

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.
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.
Immediate Anterior Implant Therapy: Comprehensive Esthetic Management
To achieve "Esthetic perfection", every minimal detail should be considered, starting from the temporary on the day of the surgery: 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 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.
