The "Magnetic Mallet" for Implant Osteotomy Preparation & Immediate Provisionalization Premium Member Content

The "Magnetic Mallet" for Implant Osteotomy Preparation & Immediate Provisionalization
In this clinical case I had to restore the upper right jaw where the tooth number 14 and 15 had to be extracted. The 16 and 17 were inserted 6 months ago with crestal sinus lift using the Magnetic Mallet as well. Same on the other side of the maxilla. Crown removing by the magnetic device, palatal tooth portion extracted by the magnetic mallet and implant inserted by using the magnetic mallet for the osteotomes preparations and the implant insertions (15) to achieve the adequate primary stability for the immediate loading.

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue Premium Member Content

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue
It’s impossible to heal well and fast when the tissue is in oxidative stress.. It occurs when there is an excess of oxidants or deficiency of antioxidants: smokers and diabetics have issues because they are in chronic oxidative stress... Tension free flap closure in mandatory. Otherwise, soft tissue and bone will fall in oxidative stress. The solution is to suture the flaps with an adequate technique. In this presentation, we show how to achieve soft tissue immobility and fixed buccal flap. How to manage the sutures? When to remove them? What’s the best material? How to handle a flat knot and the following knots? How to increase the soft tissue thickness? etc… All details and clinical follow-up are described in this short presentation.

"The Biology of Time" - A Retrospective Look at Bone Graft Protocols
Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlight the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.

In the Transition Line; Between the Prosthodontics of Today & Tomorrow Premium Member Content

In the Transition Line; Between the Prosthodontics of Today & Tomorrow
Dentistry is evolving rapidly, digital technology is covering all areas of our profession, streamlining the treatment plan and the execution of clinical cases. Prosthodontics more than any other specialty is in this transition zone between analog and digital. With the increase in the popularity of the different procedures of digital dentistry, some questions are born: to what point is the digital age here to replace the human ability? Where are we today to make predictable, repeatable and efficient digital dentistry? among many others. Undoubtedly, the digital era is here to improve our clinical practice, the dentist of today must be aware of the digital processes without forgetting the basic principles of dentistry so that their daily practice is successful and achieve the maximum goal, well-being of the patient.

Reconstruction of a Horizontal and Vertical Bone defect using The Cortical Lamina Technique

Reconstruction of a Horizontal and Vertical Bone defect using The Cortical Lamina Technique
For many years guided bone regeneration has been a challenge in oral and implant surgery. Many techniques and devices have been used in trying to regenerate and reconstruct resorbed edentulous ridges. The literature in the field is scarce due to the impossibility to perform RCT on such lesions, therefore the judgement of the international community is based on case reports and retrospective studies. In the last ten years a new device has proved to be quite successful and predictable on top of showing a very low morbidity, a membrane made of xenogeneic collagenated bone with features that are very different from any other material used in the past. This paper will show the application of the cortical lamina technique where a vertical and horizontal defect was corrected and successfully restored.

Survival of Implants after Indirect Maxillary Sinus Elevation Procedure: A Two Years Longitudinal Study

Survival of Implants after Indirect Maxillary Sinus Elevation Procedure: A Two Years Longitudinal Study
The aim of the study was to evaluate the survival rate of two diverse implant systems with different implant surfaces with the same geometrical design. In the present study, we achieved clinical success with both kinds of implant surfaces however Bioetched implant surface showed promising results comparable to Tiunite surface of Nobel BioCare Implants. In the future, more case-controlled studies with longer follow-up are needed to validate the results of the present findings.

Autologous Bone vs. Bioactive Modifiers/BMP-2: A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Autologous Bone vs. Bioactive Modifiers/BMP-2: A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration - Part 1 of 2
There are several techniques and materials available for implant site development. The choice may depend on a number of factors including size of the defect, osseous morphology, costs and surgeon or patient preferences. Autogenous bone has long been considered the gold standard of graft materials. The trend today is to reduce patient morbidity but still provide predictable outcomes. This lecture will discuss the use of autogenous bone versus using bioactive modifiers such as platelet concentrates, rhPDGF and rhBMP-2 as replacement for the need to harvest bone.

“The Full Arch Patient”; A Fully Digital Affair Premium Member Content

“The Full Arch Patient”; A Fully Digital Affair
Guided Surgery (GS) is a concept where you are guided by the rehabilitation needs of your patient to perform the implant surgery procedure based on all the info that we process via planning software that are loaded with digital files coming from intra-oral scanning (IOS) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). After planning the case, we print a surgical guide or stent to perform the surgery, this technique allows us to do it flap or flapless in a complete secure environment, quicker and more precise if we compare to "freehand" surgery. However, we have to be careful because not all the systems are the same; those who use scoops as reductors are less precise than the "scoopless", no matter which system we use we have to be clear to understand that all the classic concepts of osseointegration are not erased by guided surgery, especially bone physiology.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success Premium Member Content

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.
