The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides.

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients Premium Member Content

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.

Timing of Implant Placement After Extraction in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Timing of Implant Placement After Extraction in the Esthetic Zone
In this presentation, Dr. Daniel Buser outlines the most current scientific knowledge concerning the clinically relevant challenge of when and how to place implants after extraction of a tooth in the esthetic zone. He also gives an update on treatment options and tissue biology.

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.

Loss of Accuracy to Torque Wrenches Due to Clinical Use and Cleaning Procedures: Short Communication

Loss of Accuracy to Torque Wrenches Due to Clinical Use and Cleaning Procedures: Short Communication
The aim of this study was to investigate the way intensive use and multiple cleanings of torque wrenches may interfere with accuracy over time. Three different brands were tested at baseline and after enduring mechanical testing and cleaning in a thermal disinfector. Torque wrenches were tested at a predetermined value of 30Ncm at given intervals, and true values were registered by means of a digital torque gauge. The spring-style torque wrench produced values that changed significantly after maltiple mechanical and multiple cleaning cycles. However, the differences were small and the measured values from all tested specimens were close to the predetermined value of 30Ncm.

New Surgical Protocol to Create Interimplant Papilla: The Preliminary Results of a Case Series

New Surgical Protocol to Create Interimplant Papilla: The Preliminary Results of a Case Series
The aim of this study was to introduce a new surgical technique to regenerate the papilla adjacent to multiple or single implants using a novel instrument and a new incision design. A total of 10 consecutively treated patients with maxillary anterior implant-supported provisional restorations and missing interproximal papillae received a subepithelial connective tissue graft. The receipient site was prepared with a buccal incision apical to the mucoginigival unction and to the defective papilla, and a palatal incision, followed by buccolingual tunneling performed with a translingual curette. An average improvement in papilla index score from 0.8 to 2.4 was found after an average follow-up period of 16.3 months. This case series demonstrated that interimplant papilla regeneration can be successful over a period of 11-30 months postloading. Long-term prospective studies on tissue stability and esthetic outcomes are needed to corroborate the finding in this study.

Vertical Ridge Augmentation and Soft Tissue Reconstruction of the Anterior Atrophic Maxillae: A Case Series

Vertical Ridge Augmentation and Soft Tissue Reconstruction of the Anterior Atrophic Maxillae: A Case Series
Severe vertical ridge deficiency in the anterior maxilla represents one of the most challenging clinical scenarios in the bone regeneration arena. As such, a combination of vertical bone augmentation using various biomaterials and soft tissue manipulation is needed to obtain successful outcomes. The present case series described a novel approach to overcome vertical deficiencies in the anterior atrophied maxillae by using a mixture of autologous and anorganic bovine bone. Soft tissue manipulation including, but not limited to, free soft tissue graft was used to overcome the drawbacks of vertical bone augmentation (eg, loss of vestibular depth and keratinized mucosa). By combining soft and hard tissue grafts, optimum esthetic and long-term implant prosthesis stability can be achieved and sustained.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy Premium Member Content

Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy
Dental practice success requires a skill set with multiple facets, many of which fall outside of the clinical realm taught in dental schools and in many CE programs. This program is one a series that will address the "additional" skills and systems that are required to bridge clinical skills into practice success. The first skill set a successful practice must develop is an awareness of the major obstacles to patients accepting treatment and the systems that can be used to minimize those obstacles. Information from areas outside the dental profession can provide insight into the systems that can be used in dentistry to minimize case acceptance issues. The entire dental team needs to utilize the information in this program to get patients to support the optimal treatment options offered by highly skilled dentists.

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading Premium Member Content

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading
In Immediate loading, the survival rate is often based on the follow-up of the osseointegration, but without aesthetic appreciation... The main goal is to achieve osseointegration and aesthetics in order to get long term stability. For this goal we need to obtain both, bone formation and gum thickness, as any failure in one of the 2 factors, will induce the loss of the second factor. This presentation will show my statistics about more than 1100 full arch loaded immediately since 14 years (> 7700 implants)
