Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws Premium Member Content

Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws
In this lecture you will learn several alternatives for the full arch rehabilitation of the jaws with different degrees of resorption. Several cases will be presented step-by-step with high-quality pictures for each technique explained. The main goals are to avoid complex regeneration procedures, to avoid zigomatic surgery and to still be able to perform immediate loading in the most compromised scenarios. All-on-Four technique, palatal approach technique, pterygoid implants and the most recent Subperiosteal Implants are some of the key-concepts presented.

From Oral to Facial:Impact of Oral Surgery on Facial Esthetics - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

From Oral to Facial:Impact of Oral Surgery on Facial Esthetics - Part 2 of 2
The treatment concept in patients with edentulous maxilla will be discussed: Phase A: Augmentation procedures and implant placement (part I). Phase B: Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy for the correction of acquired class III (part II of the lecture). Clinical cases of moderate to severe edentulous maxillary atrophy are described: A combination of sub-nasal procedure, sinus elevation procedure and intra-oral autogenous bone blocks were used for ridge augmentation simultaneously with dental implant placement combined with scaffold mixed with platelets-rich-plasma (PRP) or bone-marrow aspirate (BMA) and covered with platelets-poor-plasma (PPP) as a biological membrane.

Implants in the Esthetic Zone: How to Get Predictable Results Premium Member Content

Implants in the Esthetic Zone: How to Get Predictable Results
Placings implants in the anterior maxilla can be a challenging treatment, since these are esthetically demanding cases. To achieve esthetic results which are similar to the natural tooth, first an understanding of the resorption process must be understood. Secondly with the help of three-dimensional planning on CBCT images, a protocol can be made at which timepoint an implant should be placed: immediate, early or delayed. Also, when is it a good option to preserve the socket rather than to wait for spontaneous healing. The final esthetics are not only the white esthetics, but the pink esthetics should be restored as well by means of a transitional temporary crown to create a cervical and emergence profile.

4 Steps to a Predictable Full Arch Rehabilitation
We live in an era where technology surround us. In Dentistry, there has been a progressive development in digital technology and workflows. In this lecture, we will discuss the data acquisition, diagnosis and treatment plan for a full arch rehabilitation. Which obstacles may we find and how to overcome them?

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years
When natural teeth fail, frequently there is a loss of hard and soft tissue. This may complicate subsequent dental implant placement by creating insufficient bone to house the implant. This also occurs when the tooth has been missing for an extended period, especially in the premaxilla, where the bone is less dense and often lacks sufficient volume of facial bone. Site reconstruction to accommodate implant placement often requires both hard and soft tissue augmentation. The modified interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (mIVAN) technique achieves the desired treatment goals in both delayed and immediate placement scenarios. The technique will be discussed as well as the long-term follow-up on 20 cases.

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement
Failure of a natural tooth may not permit placement of an implant at the time of extraction due to insufficiency in available bone to house the implant. Reconstruction of the extraction socket frequently involves both hard and soft tissue augmentation to provide a site that can house the implant and ridge contours that mimic the adjacent natural anatomy. This situation becomes more problematic in the maxillary anterior due to the anatomy and the lower density of the bone of the premaxilla. The solution is the interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (IVAN), which consists of hard tissue grafts, various barrier membranes, and closure with the pediculated connective tissue graft (PCTG). The modified IVAN (mIVAN) technique achieves the necessary goals and may be used in both delayed and immediate placement situations.

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study
This study utilized radiographic comparative analysis in order to evaluate dimensional ridge changes four months after tooth extraction and immediate grafting with mineralized dentin particulate autograft and chopped platelet-rich fibrin. Fifty-eight extraction sockets with up to 2mm of missing buccal bone in the coronal aspect compared to the lingual bone were included. Graft material was covered with either a platelet-rich fibrin membrane or collagen sponge with no effort to achieve primary closure.

Decision Making for Soft and Hard Tissue Augmentation in Surgically Facilitated Orthodontics

Decision Making for Soft and Hard Tissue Augmentation in Surgically Facilitated Orthodontics
The purpose of this article is to present a decision-making algorithm for soft and hard tissue augmentation in surgically facilitated orthodontics (SFOT). In cases where there is adequate hard and soft tissue envelope, selective corticotomies may be adequate. In cases, where the existing hard and soft tissue anatomy is inadequate, hard and soft tissue augmentation is recommended. Also, hard and soft tissue augmentation is recommended to avoid teeth extractions during orthodontics.
