Systematic Review of Survival Rates for Immediately Loaded Dental Implants
The primary goal of this paper was to determine the survival rate of immediately loaded (IL) dental implants based on a systematic review of the literature. Secondary goals were to determine the influence of several factors on the implant survival rate, such as the type of reconstruction, implant location, and implant surface characteristics. An electronic search of databases was performed, in addition to a hand search of the most relevant journals. All relevant articles were independently screened…
Prosthodontics, Periodontics & Orthodontics: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Implant Dentistry
Many aspects of various dental disciplines must be integrated to constitute a sound total approach to implant dentistry. Aside from the surgical elements - encompassing implant placement, position, angulation, and length - the creation of appropriate spaces to accommodate the three-dimensional final prostheses may require use of orthodontic techniques as well. And establishing and maintaining a sound periodontal environment is essential to implant integrity, from the outset of placement to finalization of the prosthetic suprastructure.
Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives in all of medical science. Advances in the surgical and prosthetic components, implant designs and surface technologies, and imaging techniques have allowed for significant modifications to occur with respect to one- and two-stage surgical protocols, accelerating treatment times to the benefit of patient and clinician. This article presents a technique to improve surgical and restorative accuracy, allowing for predictable placement and immediate loading of implants through use of CT imaging, stereolithographic models, and CT-derived surgical templates.
Dr. Ziv Mazor on Implant Dentistry
Dr. Ziv Mazor discusses many of the different aspects of implantology.
Making Clinical Choices on Implant Diameters
A discussion regarding the utilization of software applications to document and compare case results in regards to choices of various implant diameters.
Provisionalization for Long-Term Implant Therapy
Dr. Dean Vafiadis describes techniques and materials for long-term provisonalization in both anterior and posterior implant cases.
The Zirconia CAD CAM Screw Retained Implant Bridge: The Future of Full Arch Implant Supported Prosthetics
This presentation will discuss the treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic/laboratory aspects of the Zirconia CAD CAM screw retained bridge. See how this prosthetic option offers many advantages over a hybrid bridge, bar overdenture, and PFM screw retained bridge.
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.
Microimplant Usage in Orthodontic Treatment: Applications, Limitations, and Specific Case Implications
Microimplants are successfully changing traditional orthodontics. Latest techniques presented through animation and case treatment notes to increase optimal therapy.
