Determining the Cessation of Vertical Growth of the Craniofacial Structures to Facilitate Placement of Single-Tooth Implants
<b>Introduction:</b> Single-tooth implants are commonly used to replace congenitally missing teeth in adolescent orthodontic patients. However, if implants are placed before cessation of facial growth, they will submerge relative to the adjacent erupting teeth. Therefore, it is important to know when facial growth is complete in postpubertal orthodontic patients. The purposes of this study were to determine and quantify the amount of vertical growth of the facial skeleton and the amount of eruption…
Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical
outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in
both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null
hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and
marginal bone level change would exist between axial
and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival
between rehabilitation's supported only by axial
implants or by a combination of axial and tilted
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
Digital 3D CBCT in Otimizing Esthetic Implant Therapy – Part 1
Dr. Maurice Salama discusses the utilization of imaging technology and virtual treatment planning to more effectively deliver predictable and efficacious implant therapy.
CAD CAM Dentistry for Teeth and Implants
This webinar will discuss options for Cad/Cam fabrication of ceramic restorations for teeth and implants.
Biologic Considerations for Immediate Placement and Immediate Loading
Dr. Georgios Romanos presents the research and clinical data that has prompted the successful utilization of immediate implant placement and immediate loading in a variety of settings.
Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.
Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
This presentation looks critically at the literature and attempts to give clinicians a more flexible approach to immediate and delayed implant placement. Critical surgical guidelines and clinical pearls will be offered for both types of treatment as well as the management of some of the complications that may arise from immediate or delayed implant placement.
