Clinical Procedures to Control Tissue Esthetics in Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Clinical Procedures to Control Tissue Esthetics in Implant Dentistry
The demand for creating esthetic restorations has become a consistent theme in dental literature and in daily clinical practice. Surgical concepts that are emphasized as important to the esthetic outcome include resective procedures to change bone volume and levels, as well as additive procedures such as tissue grafting to alter the biotype and volume around teeth and implants. Predominately with implant treatment, today's surgical and restorative strategies play an important role in post-extractive tissue guidance, mandating precise surgical techniques, and emphasizing cooperation and coordination between the surgical and restorative team members. This webinar will explore some of the complications of treatment, underscoring the responsibility of the surgical and restorative teams to critically assess emerging treatment concepts, materials and techniques.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia Premium Member Content

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground? Premium Member Content

Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: The two camps in this debate are both adamant that their technique is the best and that theirs will give the patients the best long term aesthetic result. Is the literature and available data definitive on this matter? Is the choice really clear for clinicians? 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.

The Ridge Split Technique in the Edentulous Maxilla: Technique and Management of Complications Premium Member Content

The Ridge Split Technique in the Edentulous Maxilla: Technique and Management of Complications
Management of the narrow ridge following resorption often poses a significant challenge. Many bone augmentation techniques have been proposed to prepare these deficient sites for future implant placement utilizing GBR, Onlay Bone Grafts, Block Grafts and even Ti-Mesh. In this case report, Ridge Splitting and Expansion is proposed as a potentially less invasive and biologically sound technique which allows for more bone walls to encase the defect and allow for inlay grafting techniques or even simultaneous implant placement. This video presentation will highlight the use of this technique in the challenging edentulous maxilla. The technique, methods, flap designs and expansion tools will be highlighted as well as the management of a common mid-surgical complication. Follow up healing and case development will also be displayed as a comparison.

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis
The aim of the study was to identify the different techniques of cementation (half filling, practice abutment, and venting) that will reduce the amount of retained cement and the effect of these techniques on retention of implant supported prostheses. The venting and practice abutment techniques are suitable methods of reducing retained excess cement with optimal retention values.

Innovative Approach to Computer-Guided Surgery and Fixed Provisionalization Assisted by Screw-Retained Transitional Implants

Innovative Approach to Computer-Guided Surgery and Fixed Provisionalization Assisted by Screw-Retained Transitional Implants
The objectives of this case series are to describe a novel clinical approach to treat completely edentulous patients and determine its viability. Computer-guided implant planning was used to create a screw-retained surgical template (ST) supported by transitional implants and a fixed screw-retained provisional prosthesis supported by the transitional implants at the time of definitive implant placement.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations Premium Member Content

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
This presentation will focus on the management of the hard and soft tissue around dental implants and analyzing the characteristics of different periodontal biotypes. We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.
