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.

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches.

Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner - Part 2
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.

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and marginal bone level change would exist between axial and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival between rehabilitation's supported only by axial implants or by a combination of axial and tilted implants.

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration
Implant placement immediately after tooth extraction, followed by an immediate provisional restoration of a single dental implant, provides significant benefits compared with traditional delayed protocols. Patients are not burdened with cumbersome removable interim prostheses, osseous anatomy may be preserved, sulcular form is optimized before definitive restoration, soft tissue has matured before implant integration, fewer surgical interventions are required, and treatment time is accelerated.…
