Maximizing Aesthetics in the Deficient Alveolar Ridge Maximizing Aesthetics in the Deficient Alveolar Ridge

Summary:

A long standing challenge to the restorative dentist is single tooth replacement in an atrophic ridge crest. The loss of bone volume after tooth loss has received considerable attention in the literature. Different rates and patterns of alveolar loss have been observed, depending on where and how the tooth was lost. A 25% decrease in facial palatal width occurs in the first 12 months, and can be as great as 40% within 3 years. This article will present a predictable method for replacing the lost one prior to implant placement through the ramus block graft technique.

Early Implant Placement with Contour Augmentation - Biologic Rationale, Surgical Technique & Long-Term Results Premium Member Content

Early Implant Placement with Contour Augmentation - Biologic Rationale, Surgical Technique & Long-Term Results
Today, the timing of implant placement post-extraction in the esthetic zone is considered an important factor which influences the esthetic treatment outcome. One of these options is early implant placement after 4 to 8 weeks of soft-tissue healing. The purpose of this presentation is to present data and to analyze the stability of esthetic treatment outcomes in patients following single-tooth replacement in the anterior maxilla using the concept of early implant placement with simultaneous contour augmentation. Special emphasis will be placed on assessing the stability of the facial mucosa, since it directly depends on the stability of successful contour augmentation by GBR and to compare it to currently utilized immediate techniques like Dual Zone Therapy (Chu & Tarnow) and Partial Extraction Therapies (Salama & Gluckman).

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.
