The Great Debate on Soft Tissue Regeneration Premium Member Content

The Great Debate on Soft Tissue Regeneration
Recession and soft tissue deficiencies are a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches and techniques using minimally invasive flaps and micro-surgical instrumentation have been proposed in this session with some of the leading clinicians in the field. A conceptual debate format discussing the virtues of CTG, FGG, pedicle grafts, as well as vestibular approaches, growth factor mediated-ACDM and flap management as well as key suturing aspects were discussed.

Fully Guided with Root Membrane Technique Premium Member Content

Fully Guided with Root Membrane Technique
Loss of blood supply derived from the periodontal ligament (PDL) has been identified as a major etiologic factor for ridge resorption. Animal studies and case reports provide proof-of-principle data on the feasibility of immediate implant placement in proximity to a retained root fragment for the strategic preservation of the natural tooth apparatus. This novel concept relies on the preservation of PDL, buccal bone and soft tissue esthetics via selective preservation of the buccal portion of the root and PDL which can lead to predictable and sustainable clinical stability of immediately placed and loaded implants.

Autogenous Bone Harvesting Today Premium Member Content

Autogenous Bone Harvesting Today
This lecture focuses on autologous bone block harvesting techniques as described by Prof. Khoury: from the donor site identification and harvesting techniques, to an analysis on how computer-guided 3D technology can help the surgeon performing safe and effective mandible bone harvesting procedures.

The Complete Single Practitioner Premium Member Content

The Complete Single Practitioner
This lecture with lots of case presentations gives you a unique way of delivering solutions to complex and challenging chief complaints of patients , from a single “complete solution provider”. In these situations we consider implant dentistry a prosthetic discipline with a surgical component. If this complete single practitioner has experience as a prosthodontist, it can improve the understanding of the importance of prosthetically driven implant placement and on the other side the minimally invasive, tissue preserving approaches like partial extraction therapy, osseodensification, connective tissue grafting, guided surgery etc.

Contaminated Implants Raise Global Concern Among Dentists

Contaminated Implants Raise Global Concern Among Dentists
There is a problem that many implantologists are not aware of: recent analyses of dental implants using scanning electron microscopy indicate that an alarming number of sterile-packaged implants are contaminated. The authors assumed that either foreign particles had found their way into the osseous bed during the implant placement procedure or the implant material itself was contaminated.

Socket Shield Technique - Implantology Today

Socket Shield Technique - Implantology Today
The socket shield procedure is an effective surgical technique for implant supported restorations. It helps in preserving the labial bone and soft tissue architecture around osseointegrated implants. The procedure provides comparable or better outcomes compared to other conventional alternatives at a lower cost.

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Immediate Dental Implants; Are They a Good Option? Premium Member Content

Immediate Dental Implants; Are They a Good Option?
Immediate implant placement used to be a controversial subject, but nowadays we can obtain long-term high survival rates with this treatment option. Since surgical and prosthetic time is reduced and a great aesthetic result can be achieved, this therapy is often practiced. The aim of this presentation is to clarify which parameters and how can they influence a successful outcome in immediate implant placement. Several documented clinical cases and supporting literature will be presented to guide through diagnosis, treatment options and improvement of final outcome.

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration Premium Member Content

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
In this lecture, tips on how to deal with the different types of extraction socket, mostly infected, will be presented. The use of plasma rich in growth factors and the Endoret® (PRGF®) fibrin membrane is a key factor to enhance socket regeneration, post-operative recovery and minimize/treat complications.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.
