Summary:

Progress and technological evolution is something we should all embrace since such attributes allow us to provide patients with improved care. But when is it appropriate to consider proven materials and techniques outdated and when should one move forward with the promise of better product(s) along with superior outcomes?

Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement Using Choukroun’s Platelet-Rich Fibrin as the Sole Grafting Material: A Radiologic and Histologic Study at 6 Months
Sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement without bone graft material is a hotly debated technique. This technique could be improved and secured by the use of an autologous leukocyte-and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) (Choukroun’s technique) concentrate. The objectives of this study were to assess the relevance of PRF clots and membranes as the sole filling material during a lateral sinus lift with immediate implantation using radiologic and histologic analyses in a case series.

The Use of an Extraoral Verification Template for Dental Implant Supported Prosthesis
This article demonstrates the utilization of a preprosthetic extraoral verification template that could be used to ensure the accuracy of the master cast from which the laboratory working model is used as the in vitro foundation for the implant-supported prosthesis framework construction.

Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics

Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics
A load-free healing period has been advocated as a prerequisite to achieving osseointegration. This article reports two cases in which immediate loading of a specially designated additional or "expendable" set of titanium root-form implants was successfully utilized to support provisional fixed restorations in the maxilla and the mandible. This immediate-loading protocol is suggested as a reliable adjunctive therapeutic modality for offering implant patients access to fixed interim restorations…

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits
Modern technology can dramatically cut the time and number of visits for a complex implant case while greatly improving the precision of the final result. The great advantage of the processes shown in this presentation is that the clinician retains full control of precision implant placement, emergence profile development and the construction and aesthetics of the final rehabilitation.
