Excellent information, goes more in depth to what Dr Denis Tarnaw has been showing on morse cone connection.

James Crummett - (1/6/2010 5:04 PM)

Good explanations for the success of Ankylos and similar implants. Great shots of abutment/implant complexes flexing under load and why and how.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply, and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, especially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long-term stability.

Growth Factor Mediated Regenerative Therapies
In this very technical and scientific presentation, Dr. Joseph Choukroun, a physician and researcher from France, describes the benefits of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) in wound healing. He emphasizes the effect of PRF on the two essential factors of wound healing which are new vessels and cells in surgical sites like extraction sockets, sinus augmentation and more.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 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.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

Soft Tissue Waxup and Mock-Up as Key Factors in a Treatment Plan: Case Presentation
Rehabilitation of edentulous spaces in esthetic areas is a challenge to the clinician due to the loss of soft tissues. In these clinical situations, it would be desirable to evaluate and predict the gingival architecture to recover in the oral rehabilitation. To fulfill this need, the diagnostic was should anticipate the final rehabilitation with the integration of hard and soft tissue.

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.
