The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this case enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device.
Histologic Effect of Pure-Phase Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate on Bone Regeneration in Human Artificial Jawbone Defects
The effect of the pure-phase beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) Cerasorb on
bone regeneration was evaluated in hollow titanium cylinders implanted in the
posterior jaws of five volunteers.
Prosthodontics, Periodontics & Orthodontics: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Implant Dentistry
Many aspects of various dental disciplines must be integrated to constitute a sound total approach to implant dentistry. Aside from the surgical elements - encompassing implant placement, position, angulation, and length - the creation of appropriate spaces to accommodate the three-dimensional final prostheses may require use of orthodontic techniques as well. And establishing and maintaining a sound periodontal environment is essential to implant integrity, from the outset of placement to finalization of the prosthetic suprastructure.
