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.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.
