Managing Large Odontogenic Cysts; Decompression or Marsupialization Technique Premium Member Content

Managing Large Odontogenic Cysts; Decompression or Marsupialization Technique
Decompression and marsupialization are techniques used to reduce size of large odontogenic jaw cysts, hence making its complete removal and bone regeneration simpler, safer, and more predictable. In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi demonstrates a simple technique for decompression or marsupialization and provides a brief review of its application in management of odontogenic cysts

Implant Esthetics: Current Science and Forward Thinking to Reduce Complications Premium Member Content

Implant Esthetics: Current Science and Forward Thinking to Reduce Complications
Success in implant dentistry should ideally evaluate the long‐term primary outcome of an implant‐prosthetic complex as a whole. During this lecture, clinical considerations for dental implants will be analyzed in the context of their application to esthetic implant rehabilitations.

Ridge Split Procedure with Simultaneous Implant Placement Premium Member Content

Ridge Split Procedure with Simultaneous Implant Placement
A ridge split procedure has been suggested in literature for increasing the bucco-lingual width of the alveolar ridge prior to implant placement. The procedure can be performed in one or two surgical appointments. It is usually combined with additional augmentation utilizing a bone substitute material and a collagen membrane. In this video Dr Kher demonstrates a ridge split procedure that has been facilitated using a piezo surgical device. Following that he places 2 implants for the proposed restoration of a missing maxillary canine and first bicuspid after preparing the ossteotomy site using expansion screws. Thereafter he uses a CPS putty to graft the gap between the implants to fill all voids and achieves a satisfactory tension free closure.

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla
Following tooth extraction the implant surgeon may select between various implant placement timing and loading protocols. Ideally these are to be determined prior to extraction, be it immediate, early, or late placement. Immediate implant placement even in the aesthetic zone is a literature supported treatment modality with success comparable to alternative placement protocols. Meticulous restorative treatment planning of a tooth destined for extraction is essential. Selecting the appropriate implant and techniques may preserve and ensure natural aesthetics. Utilizing the patient’s own tooth crown can better provisionalize the implant with a ‘walk out as you walk in’ result.

Immediate Placement of Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis

Immediate Placement of Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis
Research interest on immediate placement of dental implants has shifted from implant survival toward optimal preservation of soft and hard tissues. The aim of this study is to systematically assess the condition of implant survival, peri-implant hard and soft tissue changes, esthetic outcome, and patient satisfaction of immediately placed single- tooth implants in the esthetic zone. A pooled analysis was performed to identify factors associated with survival and peri-implant tissue changes after immediate implant placement. Immediate placement with immediate provisionalization of dental implants in the esthetic zone results in excellent short-term treatment outcome in terms of implant survival and minimal change of peri-implant soft and hard tissue dimensions.

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach
Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: This study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated implants placed in extraction sockets. This protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability of long-term results.

Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series

Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series
When immediate implant placement is considered for teeth with close proximity to the sinus floor, apical extension of the osteotomy is significantly limited, and often a staged approach is used. Implant placement into fresh extraction sockets and sinus floor manipulation using bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation with implant placement are techniques most often used independently or sequentially. In this care report, immediate implant placement with simultaneous osteotome sinus floor elevation is an advantageous combination of two successfully used techniques. This combined approach can significantly reduce the treatment time for implant therapy in teeth with close sinus proximity and provide the operator with the ability to place implants of desired length.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, immediate loading by pre-computer-aided/pre-prepared temporary bridge areas will be discussed.
