Sinus Augmentation for Single-Tooth Replacement in the Posterior Maxilla: A 3-Year Follow-up Clinical Report
A technique for single-tooth sinus lift and simultaneous implant placement in the posterior maxilla is presented. Ten hydroxyapatite-coated cylindric implants, 13 to 15 mm in length, were placed together with a composite bone graft of demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft and autogenous bone in 10 adults. Surgical technique and anatomic considerations are discussed. Follow-up of 3 years showed successful function and no cervical bone loss in all patients.
The Bio-Derm Ridge Plumping Technique for Pontic Site Development
Seibert Class III apicocoronal and buccolingual alveolar ridge defects with associated gingival mucosal atrophy and absence of interdental papillae are common in edentulous areas within the anterior esthetic zone of the maxilla. Normal emergence profiles, critical to achieving
esthetic restorations, require restoration of
normal hard and soft tissue morphology, including
re-establishment of adjacent interdental papillae.
Utilising a restorative approach to correct an adult skeletal class III malocclusion
Gerard J. Lemongello discusses all the steps taken to correct the malocclusion.
Effective Techniques for Placement of Narrow Diameter Implants - Part 2 of 3
This presentation utilizes results from a prospective clinical trial as well as clinical experience to outline indications for effective and efficient utilization of narrow diameter implants in regions of limited space.
Digital 3D CBCT in Otimizing Esthetic Implant Therapy – Part 3
Dr. Maurice Salama discusses the utilization of imaging technology and virtual treatment planning to more effectively deliver predictable and efficacious implant therapy.
Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal
This webinar will highlight this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols.
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.
The Zirconia CAD CAM Screw Retained Implant Bridge: The Future of Full Arch Implant Supported Prosthetics
This presentation will discuss the treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic/laboratory aspects of the Zirconia CAD CAM screw retained bridge. See how this prosthetic option offers many advantages over a hybrid bridge, bar overdenture, and PFM screw retained bridge.
Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy
This program is one of a series that will address the "additional" skills and systems that are required to bridge clinical skills into practice success.
