Thx for sharing, beautiful surgery. What is your opinion about using higher healing abutments underneath the flap so as obtain even greater soft tissue augmentation? Thank you. Filipe Lopes.

I do treat smokers. The research shows pretty much the same success with smokers as with non- smokers.

however, with bone grafting procedures, I recommend that patients quit smoking one week before surgery and for at least3 weeks post surgery. In my experience heavy smokers (greater than one pack a day) do not heal as well as non-smokers.

with that said about 30% of my implant patients do smoke.

what is your philosophy of implant success with smokers? any limitations?

I must agree with Dr. Sonick.

hello, you used 3i implant diameter 3,25 or 4,00? why don't you pierce the bone before gbr?


Rodolfo the implant diagmet was 3.25. The bone was not pierced for it was very vascular. If it did not bleed I would have decorticated it. I was also concerned about hitting the implant. It could have been decorticated prior to implant placement.

I think that this is a great case presentation from Dr Sonick - as usual. I have a question though-I noticed that the implant was sunk quite a bit-it will move the implant-abutment connection further deep, are you not concerned about the marginal gap? Also, you said the insertion torque would exceed 65NcM- will it not compress the bone too much? Thanks for the video, Simon Milbauer

Simon Thanks for your comments. Inserting the implant deep is not a problem as long as there is bone on the adjacent teeth. It is the bone on adjacent teeth that determines the papilla adjacent to a single tooth implant.

As for insertion torque, it does not seem to matter. A while paper published earlier this year by Meltzer et al. reviewed implants with over 100 N-cm of insertion torque with no ill consequences.

My success rate over the past year was 98.5 % utilizing this type of implant (Tapered Certain Biomet 3i) with high insertion torques.

Growth Factors; The Next Step in Achieving Ideal Regeneration
The aim of dentistry is to provide esthetics and function for our patients. Using hard and soft tissue regeneration techniques we have the ability to rebuild what has been lost to disease or trauma. Whether we are regenerating lost tissue around teeth or developing an ideal implant site, growth factors are a powerful asset that help make regenerative procedures more predictable while reducing patient morbidity. This webinar review regeneration techniques and will discuss the popular growth factors available today and demonstrate their clinical use.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

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.

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective- bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable treatment alternative. These procedures led to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures in a single surgical stage and to maintenance of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24 months afterwards.

The Bio-Derm Ridge Plumping Technique for Pontic Site Development
Seibert Class III apicocoronal and buccolingual alveolar ridge defects with associated gingival mucosal atrophy and absence of interdental papillae are common in edentulous areas within the anterior esthetic zone of the maxilla. Normal emergence profiles, critical to achieving esthetic restorations, require restoration of normal hard and soft tissue morphology, including re-establishment of adjacent interdental papillae.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.
