Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate
loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in
a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular
bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the
upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction
of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective-
bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and
immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable
treatment alternative. These procedures led
to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures
in a single surgical stage and to maintenance
of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24
Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between patients with a history of periodontitis and development of cement-related peri-implant disease. Seventy-seven patients with 129 implants for this retrospective analysis were selected from completed implant cases that were scheduled for regular maintenance or had experienced mechanical or biological complications between years 2006 and 2011 in private practice. Implants with extracoronal residual cement and implants without cement remnants were analyzed.
The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this case enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device.
Reconstruccion Protesica Gingival
La apariencia saludable del tejido circundante y su arquitectura son componentes esenciales para lograr la estética dental. Para crear el efecto de DENTICION NATURAL, es indispensable que el tejido gingival, se vea similar al de los de los dientes circundantes.
La cirugía periodontal, siempre y cuando sea predecible es y ha sido un tratamiento de elección, previo a la colocación de la prótesis definitiva. Pero en algunos casos la cirugía es imposible o indeseable.
La utilización de la CERAMICA ROSADA, es una solución para defectos gingivales, no solo donde la cirugía gingival no es posible, sino como un tratamiento opcional no quirúrgico o como primera opción.
Smile Analysis - The Photoshop Smile Design Technique: Part 1
Computer design software will become the main communication technology between dentists and ceramists and a useful tool for showing patients the possibilities for enhancing their smiles. By understanding the elements of esthetics and learning how to incorporate technology applications into clinical dentistry, clinicians can predictably plan smile design cases and communicate anticipated results to patients and ceramists alike. This article, the first in a two-part series, introduces elements of smile design and reviews some timeless concepts. It discusses new, step-by step techniques for incorporating digital technology into the smile design process that can be accomplished in approximately three to four minutes.
Orthodontic Caries Control and Bleaching
Oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment can be facilitated by applying bleaching materials
to elevate the pH of the mouth during the course of treatment. Fabrication of thermoplastic
bleaching trays directly in the mouth over the braces without impressions affords
a reasonable technique for the multiple trays required during the orthodontic changes.
Splints Are Not Just for TMD Therapy
Properly made and well-adjusted occlusal splints can help control parafunctional stresses that are applied by the patient to their natural teeth and the restorations that dentists fabricate for them.
Periodontal Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics - A Description of the Surgical Technique
The purpose of this article is to describe the clinical surgical procedures that comprise the PAOO procedure.
An Expression of Your Vision: High-Quality Photography
Digital photography is common in many of today’s
dental practices, and high-quality dental images are
paramount for laboratory communication and marketing
dentistry. The purpose of this article is to define
what a high-quality dental image is, and to give
an overview of what these images are used for. In this article I will briefly go over all the steps involved in making these images and review in detail the equipment, camera settings, techniques, and post-production workflow using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
DentalXP Patient Exam Form
This patient exam form is one compiled from several clinicians and teachers like Drs. Leonard Abrams, John Kois, David Garber and Henry Salama
ProTaper Universal - Whatever You Thought, Think Again
In 1995, the opportunity was present to develop an improved set of NiTi files. The goal was to create a simple set of easy-to-use files that would significantly improve the benchmark for safety and efficiency. In collaboration with the engineers from Maillefer, Drs. Pierre Machtou, John West and I agreed to develop a set of files that would precisely duplicate the Schilder shaping concept.
