Summary:

Calcium channel-blocking agents are used extensively for the management of cardiovascular conditions, including angina pectoris, coronary artery spasm, cardiac arrhythmias, and hypertension. Gingival overgrowth around natural teeth has been previously reported in the literature with patients taking calcium channel-blocking agents. This clinical report describes hyperplasia of tissues around titanium dental implants in a patient taking Nifedipine along with the multiphasic approach to treating this medication-induced hyperplasia of the peri-implant tissues.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...

Treatment Planning 2000: An Esthetically Oriented Revision of the Original Implant Protocol

Treatment Planning 2000: An Esthetically Oriented Revision of the Original Implant Protocol
The purpose of this article is to outline the blueprint for a comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment philosophy, designed for developing the foundation for optimal esthetics in implant therapy. In addition, the important synergistic relation of the osseous, gingival, and restorative triad in creating the esthetic profile is described. The need to enhance the individual components of this triad is emphasized as the basis for a revised implant protocol actualized for treating the complex partially…

The Replacement of Small-Diameter Teeth in the Esthetic Zone Using Narrow-Diameter Implants

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 laboratory technician.

In-Office CadCam Integrated Esthetic Implant Dentistry
CADCAM, and CBCT are becoming somehow mandatory for the proper planning, designing and execution of an esthetic implant treatment outcome. Integrating digital diagnosis to plan properly the surgical aspect from hard and soft tissue grafting to implant placement and abutment design and material selection , to final esthetic restoration outcomes is the goal of using this technology with a microsurgical approach.

Methods of Determining Implant Stability and Scientific Loading Criteria Premium Member Content

Methods of Determining Implant Stability and Scientific Loading Criteria
There can always be difficulties in determining the osseointegration status when an implant is to be loaded with the prosthesis. Nevertheless, it is vital to know whether the implant is stable. Research today demonstrates that implants can be subject to immediate or early loading, but there were no objective standard methods of determining implant stability which will be very helpful criteria for immediate or early loading. In this lecture, the current scientific loading criteria and decision making process for the immediate or early loading will be presented with clinical cases and reliable scientific data such as Resonance Frequency Analysis, implant design that reinforced stability, Insertion torque value, evaluation of bone density and patient’s parafunction. Dr. Park and his colleagues are dedicated to finding and promoting a reliable and scientifically viable protocol for loading implant in more predictable time frame

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.
