Osseodensification: A Paradigm Shift in Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Osseodensification: A Paradigm Shift in Implant Dentistry
This course aims to present Osseodensification techniques designed to maximize implant primary stability, implant insertion torque, and early loading of dental implants. Atraumatic Osseodensification techniques may also be used for alveolar ridge expansion, hydraulic maxillary sinus floor elevation with autografting.

Minimally Invasive Techniques in the Treatment of Implant Complications and the Deficient Ridge Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Techniques in the Treatment of Implant Complications and the Deficient Ridge
With more implants being placed then ever before the issues related to peri-implantitis, bone and tissue recession and failure of implants is being a dominant area of concern. This presentation will highlight some minimally invasive approaches to manage these complications as well as the expanding role of bioactive materials and techniques to enhance deficient ridges through expansion and short implants.

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy Premium Member Content

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.

Novel Implant Planning Protocol Utilizing the 3A-2B Rule to Enhanced Predictability Premium Member Content

Novel Implant Planning Protocol Utilizing the 3A-2B Rule to Enhanced Predictability
This presentation describes some basic biological aspects that can be used as a rule in any treatment planning, simple or complex, to determine the viability and the ideal type of restoration in order to obtain a high aesthetic outcome. A novel Radiographic Biological Ruler will be presented and used in different type of cases to explain the concept of 3A-2B.

The ABC Protocol in the Esthetic Zone: A Comprehensive Surgical & Prosthetic Approach

The ABC Protocol in the Esthetic Zone: A Comprehensive Surgical & Prosthetic Approach
the purpose of this article is to present a surgical and restorative protocol for the replacement of missing teeth in the esthetic zone. The ABC protocol consists of digitally guided implantation, autogenous bone graft, followed by bovine bone xenograft and connective tissue graft. Autogenous bone is placed in contact with the implant surface to induce osseointegration; bovine bone xenograft is then applied to augment the ridge dimension and provide long-term stability. Connective tissue is used to provide additional volume. The ABC biomaterial sequence offers favorable hard and soft tissue dimensions and immediate provisional restoration predictably leads to an esthetically pleasing definitive prosthesis.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement, Part 2. The Effects of Bone Grafting and Provisional Restoration on Peri-implant Soft Tissue Height & Thickness - A Retrospective Study

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement, Part 2. The Effects of Bone Grafting and Provisional Restoration on Peri-implant Soft Tissue Height & Thickness - A Retrospective Study
This article presents the results of evaluating the changes in peri-implant soft tissue dimensions associated with immediate implant placement into anterior post-extraction sockets for four treatment groups: no BGPR(bone graft, no provisional restoration), PR (no bone graft, provisional restoration), BG (bone graft, no provisional restoration), and BGPR (bone graft, provisional restoration). The vertical distance of the peri-implant soft tissue was greater for grafted sites than for non-grafted ones. The facial soft tissue thickness at the gingival third was greater for grafted than for non-grafted sites and for sites with provisional restorations compared to sites without them, respectively. The net gain in soft tissue height and thickness was about 1mm. The increases in vertical and horizontal dimensions for grafted sites were between 0.5 and 1.0mm, as compared to sites with no bone graft and no provisional restoration.

Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial

Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial
It has been shown that thin mucosal tissues may be an important factor in crestal bone loss etiology. Thus, it is possible that mucosal tissue thickening with allogenic membrane might reduce crestal bone loss. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how implants with traditional connection maintain crestal bone level after soft tissue thickening with allogenic membrane. After 1-year follow-up, implants in group A had 1.65 1 0.08-mm bone loss mesially and 1.81 1 0.06 mm distally. Group B had 0.31 1 0.05 mm mesially and 0.34 1 0.05 mm distally. C group implants experienced bone loss of 0.44 1 0.06 mm mesially and 0.47 1 0.07 mm distally. Differences between A and B, and A and C were significant both mesially and distally, whereas differences between B and C were not significant mesially and distally

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed long-term success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient. Along with the many benefits of added predictability and enhanced options, the ever-evolving role of osseointegrated implants in the treatment pf the partially edentulous jaw has also created new challenged. Unlike the fully edentulous individual who maintains the implant-restorative interface beyond the lip perimeter, many partially edentulous patients undergo the transition within the esthetic zone.

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits Premium Member Content

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits
Modern technology can dramatically cut the time and number of visits for a complex implant case while greatly improving the precision of the final result. The great advantage of the processes shown in this presentation is that the clinician retains full control of precision implant placement, emergence profile development and the construction and aesthetics of the final rehabilitation.
