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.

Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Prosthodontics Approach to a Periodontics Challenge
Edentulism in the anterior sector of the maxillary arch may represent a complex situation for the restorative treatment. Due to the esthetic importance of this area of the mouth, it is imperative that we have a complete harmony between soft tissues, bone and teeth. In situations where dentition has been missing for a many years, bone and soft tissue loss can make the restorative treatment more complex. When diagnosing and treatment planning a patient with such problems; it is important to analyze all probable treatment options. Interdisciplinary treatment planning, will help achieve success when dealing with cases like these. This is why adequate communication between, the surgeon and restorative dentist is imperative.

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits Premium Member Content

A Full Mouth Rehabilitation in Four Major Visits
Modern technology can dramatically cut the time and number of visits for a complex implant case while greatly improving the precision of the final result. The great advantage of the processes shown in this presentation is that the clinician retains full control of precision implant placement, emergence profile development and the construction and aesthetics of the final rehabilitation.

Immediate Implant Provisionalization: A Critical Aspect in Tissue Care and Esthetics-Part 1 of 2
The management of the hopeless tooth or an edentulous span in the Estheitc Zone is amongst the most clinically demanding procedures in tooth replacement do to the demands of tissue preservation and patient management during the healing phase. As important as the implant surgical process in these areas is the role of the immediate provisional restoration. A step-by-step protocol will be presented in how to fabricate the proper screw-retained provisional restoration from the fabrication of the acrylic shell to managing and capturing the proper supportive subgingival contour.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A New Technique for Compromised Extraction Sites

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A New Technique for Compromised Extraction Sites
Immediate loading of implant in damaged fresh extraction socket with gingival architecture involvement, using bone sliver graft from maxillary tuberosity: a clinical case. <br> Immediate loading of implants in undamaged sockets following tooth extraction is very well established in the literature. In cases of tooth loss with socket structure loss, the esthetic risk increases, thus contraindicating immediate loading, such that the bone graft procedure needs to be prior to implant insertion. This paper describes an immediate loading procedure in a damaged fresh socket in the region of an upper central incisor that presented unevenness of gingival contour.
