Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth Premium Member Content

Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth
The use of ultrasound applied to surgery has changed some of the most frequent clinical procedures, such as the extraction of third parties molars included, thus spreading an innovative concept in all dentistry: piezoelectric surgery or piezosurgery. Unlike implantology, it is a branch now widespread among dentists, extractive surgery still represents a "taboo" for many colleagues, who while practicing surgery daily implant, prefer to leave the avulsions often to maxillofacial surgeons or oral surgeons, considering it an intervention of greater complexity and often a source of anxiety and stress for the operator. So taking care of about 10 years of simple and complex extractive surgery I had the need to elaborate a lecture in which they are described in a simple and linear way the surgical techniques for the avulsion of the dental elements included, to provide a repeatable and predictable approach and method in order to reduce their invasiveness and traumaticity procedures.

Digital Dynamic & Static Solutions
Partial Extraction Therapy and crestal sinus augmentation have changed the methods of implant planning and execution. Preserving both hard and soft tissue has propelled these concepts to innovative. Until recently the use of dynamic and static guidance has been delayed. The objective of this presentation is to understand the need for digital guidance and explores avenues to accomplish a digitally based workflow and execution fr the subsequent procedures.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

Combination Approach to Site Development: Autologous Tissue Premium Member Content

Combination Approach to Site Development: Autologous Tissue
The ideal grafting material should be biocompatible, biodegradable, easy handling, cost-effective, minimize inflammation and foreign body reaction, not transmit diseases and assure a long-term restoration and preservation of the alveolar ridge. Is there any better scenario to prove the grafting material properties than the worst scenario in esthetic implant dentistry: central-lateral, site by site? In this lecture, the combination approach to the site preservation and development utilizing exclusively autologous tissues is explained, based on the available literature and presenter´s experience and shown on numerous central-lateral cases.

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.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation Premium Member Content

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

Integrating Orthodontics with Orthognatic Surgery; From Virtual Planning to Clinical Excellence Premium Member Content

Integrating Orthodontics with Orthognatic Surgery; From Virtual Planning to Clinical Excellence
Dentofacial deformities in adults require the combination and skills of the orthodontist and maxillofacial surgeon. In order to achieve all the functional and esthetic goals. In digital dentistry’s days virtual planning of orthodontics and orthognatic surgical corrections has become a valuable tool. Results can be compared to planning both for reevaluation and sharing information with colleagues and our patients. Virtual planning account for more reliable and precise results in our orthognatic surgery. Orthodontic preparation is the gold standard for maximizing the surgical correction. Cases will illustrate our treatment protocol from A to Z for these complex and challenging situations.

Socket Preservation vs Root Submergence Technique Premium Member Content

Socket Preservation vs Root Submergence Technique
Socket preservation has been a common technique used in dentistry in order to maintain the volume ridge when the extraction is performed. New techniques and materials are used today in order to improve the outcomes like root submergence technique developed by Dr Maurice Salama and his team, where we submerge the root keeping intact the PDL and bundle bone responsible for maintaining the original bone architecture. Here both techniques are compared and described.

A Surgeon's Perspective of the Digital Divide Premium Member Content

A Surgeon's Perspective of the Digital Divide
The impact of digital technology in implant dentistry continues to expand at a rapid rate. As a result, the management of more complex cases is becoming a common place in everyday decision making and practice. However,the optimal patient outcomes can only be maximized by cohesiveness between the surgeon and the restorative dentist AS A TEAM. This lecture will focus on the surgeon's role in being a team player and collaborating digital applications to communicate with the restorative doctor. Applications of intra-oral scanning to facilitate this collaboration will be shown through multiple applications in case scenarios. Welcome to the digital revolution.
