Connective Tissue Attachment to Dental Implants - Pt 1

Description:
In Part 1 of this series, Dr. Myron Nevins presents new and significant research on the role that the micro-geometry of the implant surface at the neck of the implant can play on maintaining soft tissue integrity and health. Dr. Nevins specifically outlines the properties and advantages of new Laser-Lok microchannels at the neck of the implant industry. In addition, he details the histologic comparison of soft tissue attachment between this new implant surface and a natural tooth surface.

It is just amazing how far you guys go, I am 24 from Spain and working in the uk and unfortunately when I talk about biological width most of my colleagues look at me as if I was crazy (I would not even dare to talk about the horizontal component; yes, I may have to change environment), being this a little bit frustrating. Dentalxp is just such a motivation and to see how much you care about evidence based dentistry is just inspirational. Thank you to share all this info with us, I am actually doing a PG certif in the UK and everything they say I know better from you. The best 250$ I have ever spent.

An incredible finding by Dr. Nevins and his team. Oblique connective tissue fiber insertion onto an implant surface is a tremendous benefit to long term tissue and bone stability. Human histological evidence of this oblique fiber attachment has never before been shown in the literature. The long term esthetic importance of such an occurrence is obvious. Laser microchannels may become the standard in the future of implant microgeometry. I continue to wait for similar literature regarding "platform switching" and biological width with other implant designs. If anyone is interested in reading the article it is posted on this site for pdf download.
Well worth it.

Management of Narrow and Short Ridge Dimensions in Implant Dentistry: New Minimally Invasive Concepts
The management of narrow and short ridge dimensions has posed a great concern for most implantologists. Often large GBR or block augmentation procedures are suggested with high morbidity but this lecture presents more minimally invasive options to restore these ridge challenges. Ridge Expansion with motorized drills as well as the utilization of ultra-short and wider implants to avoid sinus and nerve proximity challenges will be discussed. The role of blood born bioactive modifiers, specifically PRGF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors) to enhance wound healing will similarly be highlighted.

Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials. These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.

The Reality of Anatomy and the Triangle of Bone

The Reality of Anatomy and the Triangle of Bone
“Reality of Anatomy” is a concept developed by the author to describe the anatomical relationship between the tooth, the surrounding alveolar housing, the clinical crown, the root, and other important anatomy. Most textbooks, manufacturers’ literature, journal articles, and meeting presentations describe a relationship of the tooth to bone. These illustrations are acceptable in teaching the concept of crown-to-root ratio and are useful in describing certain procedures related to implant procedures.…

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes
This article demonstrates the importance of proper surgical and prosthetic principles in achieving esthetic implant results.Successful dental implant therapy in the maxillary anterior dentition requires meticulous attention to surgical and prosthodontic measures. Proper diagnosis, extraction technique, implant selection, and placement significantly impact outcomes. Respect of hard and soft tissue physiology following tooth loss and implant placement requires specific steps be taken. Management tissue contours properly, via regenerative therapy, results in successful framing of the restoration. Provisionalization and definitive restorative therapy also impacts the level of esthetic success.The contours of the temporary abutment and crown develop soft tissue contours for the final restoration. Overcontouring can lead to soft tissue recession and mucosal asymmetry. Design of the definitive crown(s) is crucial for long-term maintenance of esthetically acceptable results.
