Implant Aesthetic Score for Evaluating the Outcome
Implant restorations delivered according to the Brånemark protocol have proven to be highly predictable. To shorten the length of treatment associated with the Brånemark protocol, as well as to preserve soft and hard tissues, newer protocols have focused on reducing or even eliminating the time between tooth extraction and implant placement and between implant placement and prosthetic restoration delivery. The authors present a case in which control of postextraction implant placement, optimal implant…
Influence of a Nanometer-Scale Surface Enhancement on De Novo Bone Formation on Titanium Implants
In this prospective randomized controlled clinical study, small titanium implants were placed in posterior maxillae for the purpose of assessing the rate and extent of new bone development. Nine pairs of site evaluation implants were placed in posterior areas of maxillae and retrieved with trephine drills after 4 or 8 weeks of unloaded healing. The amount of bone in linear contact (%) with the implant surface was used to determine the osteoconductive potential of the implant surface. Implant surfaces…
Computer-aided Design/Computer-aided Manufacturing Applications Using CT and Cone Beam CT Scanning Technology
The advent of 3-D reconstruction using CT or cone beam CT (CBCT) empowers clinicians with tools to simulate implant placement, bone grafts, or orthognathic surgical procedures in a true and accurate virtual environment.
All Ceramic Solution utilizing a Zirconia Implant
All ceramic implant surgery.
Managing Multiple Extraction and Implant Placement in a Partially Edentulous Arch
Dr. Maurice Salama details the decision making process as well as the application of interdisciplinary methodology utilized to manage a complex case requiring multiple extractions, implant placement and temporization.
Narrow Diameter Implants - Part 2
The pre-operative treatment planning and preparation for the successful utilization of narrow diameter implants.
Increase Surgical Implant and Regenerative Success by Going 3D and Using Innovative Products
Detailed videos using 3D planning software as well as innovative products by a speaker with an extensive background in implant and regenerative surgical procedures.
Immediate Anterior Implant Therapy: Comprehensive Esthetic Management
To achieve "Esthetic perfection", every minimal detail should be considered, starting from the temporary on the day of the surgery: Dr Agnini will describe various clinical options and techniques for efficiently and esthetically fabricating a temporary restoration immediately after implant placement in the replacement of a single tooth.
Alveolar Ridge Regenerative Strategies: Autogenous Bone vs BMP-2
This clinical based presentation will compare the use of autogenous bone vs BMP-2 for alveolar ridge reconstruction. The science, indications, advantages and disadvantages of each approach will be featured. Single tooth to full arch reconstruction cases will also be shown along with understanding the application of non-resorbable vs resorbable mesh barriers for alveolar ridge reconstruction.
