A New Implant Design for Crestal Bone Preservation: Initial Observations and Case Report
Following the exposure and restoration of two-piece dental implants, some change in the vertical level of the peri-implant crestal bone height has been reported. This change in crestal bone height has not, however, negatively impacted long-term implant success. This article describes how the concept of platform switching is incorporated into a new implant design as a means of reducing or eliminating the occurrence of crestal bone loss. Preliminary observations from clinicians utilizing this new implant design are herein presented.
Prosthetic Management of Implants with Different Osseous Levels
The osseointegrated implant has become a standard treatment with a high degree of predictability for patients missing one or more teeth. It is especially recommended when the patient has a clear medical history and normal bone levels in both width and height in the edentulous areas. In constant search for improvement, clinicians find themselves looking into every element relating to the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth: existing bone structure, surgical technique, implant placement, implant…
Peri-Implant Tissue Response Following Connective Tissue and Bone Grafting in Conjunction with Immediate Single-Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
The case series evaluated the peri-implant tissue response following extraction and immediate placement and restoration of an implant in conjunction with subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) and bone grafting in the esthetic zone.
Ridge Preservation and Augmentation In Immediate Implant Therapy Part 1
Extraction site enhancement and implant placement.
Implant Site Assessment and Enhancement
Protocols for site assessment and enhancement for successful esthetic implant therapy.
Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration
The IDR (Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration) technique has been used for over 6 years. With it, we can reconstruct socket tissue losses in the same surgical session of dental extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, minimizing the treatment time and morbidity of the procedures.
In this presentation we discuss the hard and soft tissues stability when the IDR technique is applied in different types of periodontal biotypes and in sites with different defect levels.
The clinical, radiographic and tomographic follow-up of some cases is shown, allowing us to evaluate the maintenance of gingival architecture and peri-implant bone stability around the implants.
CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants
This webinar will discuss options for Cad/Cam fabrication of ceramic restorations for teeth and implants.
Insights, Trends & Controversies in Implant Dentistry
In this first of a 4 part series, Dr. Dennis tarnow shares insights into new trends, developments and controversies in implant dentsitry. 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.
All-On-Four Implant Protocol - Fad or Phenomena
This webinar with Dr. George Duello and Dr. Maurice Salma will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.
