Summary:

A key goal of aesthetic/cosmetic dentistry is the fabrication of maintainable, aesthetic, and functional prostheses that preserve the health of the teeth and soft tissues. Advances in restorative dentistry have significantly improved the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable treatment. When implants are indicated, osseointegration is an added factor that is essential for success. It is universally accepted that implant dentistry is a restorative-driven treatment with a surgical component. Whether implants and/or natural toothsupported restorations are to be placed in the aesthetic zone, the following factors must be considered in order to achieve the desired result.

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement
Evidence suggests that smoking is detrimental to the survival of dental implants placed in grafted maxillary sinuses. Studies have shown that improving bone quantity and quality, using rough- surfaced implants, and practicing good oral hygiene may improve outcomes. In this prospective study, the long-term survival rates of implants placed simultaneously with sinus grafting in smokers and non- smokers were compared.

The Use of Free Gingival Soft Tissue to Improve Implant/Soft Tissue Interface

The Use of Free Gingival Soft Tissue to Improve Implant/Soft Tissue Interface
Various techniques for the placement of different types of dental implants have evolved to the point where predictable bone-to-implant integration occurs if proper surgical technique is followed. The soft-tissue adaptation to the implant abutment is the first line of defense to prevent the development of peri-implantitis and subsequent bone loss. Given that there is a tenuous protective seal around dental implants, the rationale for soft-tissue augmentation around dental implants to provide an improved,…

Progressive Bone Adaptation of Titanium Implants During and After Orthodontic Load in Humans

Progressive Bone Adaptation of Titanium Implants During and After Orthodontic Load in Humans
The aim of the present work was the evaluation of implant stability and periimplant bone reaction by histologic and clinical evaluation after therapeutic orthodontic loads. Forty-one adult patients received titanium implants as an orthodontic anchorage device; 12 patients received a retromolar or palatal implant to obtain tooth movement. Seven implants were removed at the end of the orthodontic therapy, after 2, 4, 6, and 12 months of orthodontic load, and processed for histologic examination. It…

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

Digital Patient Specific Implant Abutment Options for Optimum Periodontal and Esthetic Results
The evolution of Implant Therapy is at the point of uncompromised clinical results when available technologies are appropriately applied. The restorative clinician working in concert with their laboratory can successfully achieve extraordinary results on a routine basis. The various abutment materials and design parameters will be illustrated by review of clinical / laboratory case studies. Restorative material options will be discussed with a focus on optimum long term clinical performance. New long term provisional technology will also be explored. Cementable and screw retained indications and contra-indications will be reviewed as well as approaches to “problem case” solutions.
