Summary:

The oral cavity has numerous microbes, providing us with a balanced microbial environment, however conditions like periodontitis sometimes prevail leading to bone loss and eventually causing tooth loss if not treated appropriately. By the same token,even with implants, gram positive facultative flora, establishes shortly after implant placement and stable implants showed no significant shifts in the composition, where as failing implants showed presence of Gram-negative anaerobic bacteria, particularly fusobacteria, spirochetes, and black-pigmenting organisms such as Prevotella intermedia. Which leads to destruction of the peri-implant apparatus and eventual loss of the implant if not attended to in a timely fashion. It is important to understand the microbiological aspects of peri-implant disease in order to proffer appropriate treatment.

Restoration Implant Placement & Site Development

Restoration Implant Placement & Site Development
In any restoration or natural tooth, the surrounding soft-tissue profile plays an integral role in the final esthetics of a case. Similarly in implant restorations, it is no longer sufficient to merely attach a prosthetic device to the underlying fixture, but for optimal esthetics it has become essential for the implant site to be reconstituted in a three-dimensional approach. This invariably involves redevelopment or replacement of lost hard tissue and redevelopment of the correct soft-tissue profile,…

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).

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.
