Replacing the Natural Tooth System in the Esthetic Zone: Flapless Implant Placement and Simultaneos Restoration to Preserve Tissue Contours and Guarantee Esthetics Replacing the Natural Tooth System in the Esthetic Zone: Flapless Implant Placement and Simultaneos Restoration to Preserve Tissue Contours and Guarantee Esthetics

Summary:

The immediate temporization of dental implants at placement, following a flapless approach after tooth removal, can lay the foundation for the formation and maintenance of the soft-tissue contours necessary to enhance the clinical appearance of the implant-supported restoration in the esthetic zone. The conservative nature of this technique promotes simplification of the implant process, provides an esthetic, non-removable provisional, and facilitates a shorter healing phase. The patient is returned to a normal lifestyle in a more rapid fashion after receiving a natural-looking tooth replacement.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…

Abutment Selection and Tissue Modeling in Implant Dentistry
Dr. Barry Goldenberg outlines the unique role that the implant abutment/connection complex plays in peri-implant tissue stability. Specifically, how the interactions of the various components in this complex, and their relationship to each other, influence the shape, color and contour of the critical soft tissue around implants in the esthetic zone. In addition, stock and custom abutments are compared relative to their respective benefits.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.
