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.

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits
This presentation describes important biological aspects that can be systematically utilized as a guide in any type of implant treatment planning, simple or complex, to determine the predictability of success as well as the ideal type of restoration in order to obtain a high aesthetic outcome. A novel Radiographic Biological Ruler will be presented and used in different type of cases to explain the concept of 3A-2B.

The Central-Lateral Replacement Dilemma in Esthetic Implant Dentistry: Clinical Alternatives & Case Management Premium Member Content

The Central-Lateral Replacement Dilemma in Esthetic Implant Dentistry: Clinical Alternatives & Case Management
This presentation puts an emphasis on identifying the risk factors to successful esthetic outcomes specific to multiple adjacent tooth replacement within the Esthetic Zone. Specifically, the challenges to replacement of adjacent Maxillary Lateral and Central Incisors will be highlighted as well as developing appropriate solutions to overcoming them. A clear blueprint will be outlined which will incorporate digital and biomaterial technology synergistically with advanced surgical protocols to overcome esthetic challenges and predictably achieve successful results. In addition, specific guidelines for the utilization of new regenerative products will be outlined as well as new technologies and applications for future enhancement.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants
As patient demand increases for more natural restorations in the esthetic zone, clinicians must have the highest level of skill and knowledge to maintain or reform the interdental papilla between teeth, between implants and teeth, and between adjacent implants. To date, there are no reports that have measured the distance from the contact point to the bony crest between implants. One reason for this may be the fact that, with two adjacent implants, the contact point of the crown can be established at any distance from the gingival margin according to the restorative dentist's specifications. Therefore, in this study, the height of the soft tissue to the crest of bone was measured between two adjacent implants independent of the location of the contact point. The purpose of this study was to determine the range and average height of tissue between two adjacent implants.

Anterior Extraction & Implant Placement in a Severely Deficient Site

Anterior Extraction & Implant Placement in a Severely Deficient Site
Extraction and implant placement is a functionally predictable therapeutic modality. Esthetic predictability, however, can sometimes prove elusive. This is especially true for the implant replacement of severely compromised anterior teeth with hard and soft tissue deficiencies within the esthetic zone.
