Summary:

A common issue in tooth replacement is the ability of the dental team to reestablish normal form and architecture to the hard and soft tissues before implant placement. This is especially challenging in the esthetic zone, where the replacement of a missing tooth must not only function, but esthetically match the contours of the hard and soft tissue of the adjacent natural dentition. In this case report, the use of bone and soft tissue grafting for site development before implant placement will be highlighted. The restorative phase of tissue molding and color matching with light reflection using a new zirconium abutment and allceramic restoration will also be featured.

Bio-Oss Collagen in the Buccal Gap at Immediate Implants - A 6-Month Study in the Dog
Following tooth extraction and immediate implant installation, the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes substantial bone modeling and the ridge dimensions are reduced. Five beagle dogs about 1 year old were used. The 4th premolar in both quadrants of the mandible were selected and used as experimental sites.The outline of the marginal hard tissue of the control sites was markedly different from that of the grafted sites.

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series
To measure the buccal plate reconstruction of extraction sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects using a bone allograft in combination with an absorbable collagen membrane and a custom-healing abutment at the time of tooth removal. Implants placed into sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects demonstrated radiographic reformation of the labial plate dehiscence defect at 6 to 9 months post-treatment. The net gain in labial plate on CBCT in L1 and L2 was 3.0 mm, where 0 mm existed at pre-treatment. The minimum amount of labial plate thickness of 2.0 mm was achieved in all treated sites, evaluated radiographically at 6-9 months post-operatively, in a single procedure, without flap elevation and maintaining the gingival architecture and satisfactory esthetics.

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.

Total Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept
A fixed implant supported prosthesis is the ideal treatment option for the edentulous patient and those facing the imminent loss of their remaining dentition. Through innovation, along with continuous clinical and scientific research, it has become possible to treat virtually every edentulous case with a highly functional and esthetic fixed solution. The oral rehabilitation of these patients has two stages: surgical and prosthetic.
