Vestibuloplasty: Indications and Techniques
Description: Following the complete loss of teeth, the alveolar bone undergoes various degrees of resorption, particularly in response to tissue-supported conventional dentures. This results in loss of vestibule and decreased surface area for denture support. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi reviews various vestibuloplasty procedures that have been described for restoring the vestibular depth and increasing denture surface area. Additionally, he discusses the application of vestibuloplasty in the management of patients with bone augmentation and implants who commonly present with decreased vestibular depth, the inadequate zone of keratinized gingiva, and thin soft tissue biotype. A step-by-step surgical technique is presented that will increase vestibular depth, the zone of attached gingiva, and soft tissue thickness for enhanced aesthetics and function of dental implants.
Minimally Invasive Restorations through Maximum Visualization
This presentation will highlight providing minimally invasive restorations for patients, aided through technology such as magnification, illumination, percussion diagnostics and current dental material choices. Of critical importance today is the realization that patients are living longer and want to retain their teeth for a lifetime. With these factors in mind, the preservations of tooth structure is even more critical today than in former generations. For restoration longevity of minimally invasive restorations there must be a commitment to precision aided by magnification, understanding the physical properties of materials, controlling and managing the occlusal forces, learning how to measure and monitor the mechanical stability of tooth and implant stability with new technology breakthroughs and preventive control instructions.
Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.
Tissue Responsible Dentistry - Part 1: Contemporary Concepts in Hard & Soft Tissue Management in Implant Dentistry
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years several studies, well defined approaches have been published on how to achieve pleasing outcomes. We must understand the biology of extraction sites and different treatment options for preserving or even reconstructing bony structures for predictable implant insertion. This clinical and evidence based presentation emphasizes the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant surgery and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. There will be a special focus on immediate extraction site placements and surrounding tissue management as well.
Complete Digital Integration: From Implant to Crown
In this video Dr. Luciano Retana explains the digital integrated treatment flow. Covering very basic
topics like digital imaging and some terms that we should manage if we are related with this kind of
treatments. He also explains step by step some digital protocols from the virtual planning of the
implants to the delivery of the virtually design and machined restoration.
