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.

Preservation of the Bundle Bone: Reality or Myth
The loss of teeth will lead to resorption of the buccal plate with its resultant need for extensive augmentative procedures (both bone and soft tissue) as well as the risk of poor long term aesthetic stability. Partial Extraction Therapies (PET) are techniques that allow us to maintain the buccal bone plate and hence prevent the collapse of the alveolar bone creating a platform for ideal soft tissue and bone which is stable in the long term. This is a greater problem in the aesthetic areas. This lecture will take you through the different options with regards to immediate implant placement as well as the most cutting edge PET in a step by step fashion.

Management of The Critical Size Defect; New Age Tools and Techniques Premium Member Content

Management of The Critical Size Defect; New Age Tools and Techniques
This presentation highlights the placement of 2 implants in a large 3D Vertical & Horizontal defect in the anterior maxilla. The defect is treated by utilizing a mix of autogenous bone harvested using Auto-bone collector and cortical-cancellous particulate Allograft. The mix is then secured by a customized 3D pre-formed titanium membrane followed by "labial contour" augmentation of the defect which is then secured by a rigid absorbable collagen membrane to create and maintain space. This will protect the graft and help stabilize the blood clot during the critical healing time. This membrane is fixed by bone tacks for stability. The final results showing good healing of the soft and hard tissues is displayed.

Extraction and Bone Grafting Techniques to Optimize Site Preservation
Implant placement is dependent upon bone quantity and quality. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated.

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations
Titanium mesh has been used in reconstructive surgery and ridge augmentation for several years. The traditional technique involves using cancellous autogenous bone under the mesh scaffold. More recently growth factors and bone substitutes have been utilized as autograft replacements. There are several advantages to using titanium mesh for space maintenance including strength, ease of use, low cost and biocompatibility. However, the difficulty in removing the mesh has led to a search for other space maintenance scaffolds including tenting screws, dense preshaped collagen and porous high-density polyethylene. This webinar will discuss the use of rhBMP-2 for managing horizontal and vertical bone deficiencies with various scaffolds.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy Premium Member Content

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.
