The Replacement of Small-Diameter Teeth in the Esthetic Zone Using Narrow-Diameter Implants
The lack of bone available for the surgeon
as well as the lack of restorative space available
between the adjacent teeth makes tooth
replacement with implants challenging
for both the restorative dentist and the
Fifty Years of Interdisciplinary Site Development: Lessons & Guidelines from Periodontal Prosthesis
Just as "osseointegration" became synonymous with successful restoration of function in the fully edentulous patient during the 1980s, the term "implant site development" has become intricately associated in the 1990s with the techniques used to achieve esthetic results with implants in the partially edentulous patient. This article explores the roots of the concept of site development within the philosophy and principles of periodontal prosthesis. In addition, the myriad of techniques that are…
Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes & Soft Tissue Manipluation
An adequate bone base is usually a prerequisite for functionally and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft tissue architecture around a dental implant. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone width as a result of tooth loss, a jaw enlargement technique with osteotomes combined with soft tissue manipulation may be utilized to facilitate proper implant placement while concomitantly optimizing the aes thetics of the final implant prosthesis. The learning objective of…
Computerized Implant Dentistry - The Future is Now
Dr. Dean Vafiadis discusses the effect of computer technology on fabricating final abutments and crowns in implant therapy.
Extra-Short Implants in the Posterior Mandible
Dr. Eduardo Anitua outlines the advantages of extra-short implants in managing ridges that are compromised in length due to anatomical limitations.
Customized 3D Treatment Planning Concepts - Matching Receptor Sites with Specific Implant Designs - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will cover detailed concepts of diagnosis and treatment planning using state-of-the-art 3-D imaging modalities for the purpose of customizing therapy based on individual implant receptor sites.
Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials.
These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.
