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.

Reverse Engineering and Optical Scan Technology in Implant Dentistry

Reverse Engineering and Optical Scan Technology in Implant Dentistry
In this clinical video, tooth replacement of maxillary canine is performed utilizing CBCT technology for pre-assessment of the osseous ridge form followed by incisionless transmucosal implant placement with a Ritter Implant. This allows us to Optically Scan with a 3 Shape unit the stable Soft tissue form, occlusion and implant position using a scan body on the Ritter Spiral Implant System prior to any surgical incision is initiated. This information is sent off to the lab for final abutment milling and provisionalization at 3 days. Surgical entry and bone regeneration utilizing PRGF is performed last to allow for tissue shaping with the provisional restoration.

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, software's and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy
This article suggests a strategy to provide a more predictable protocol for esthetic implant treatment for multiple- tooth defects using the root submergence technique (RST). The RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site, which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and assists in the creation of an esthetic result in adjacent multipletooth- replacement cases.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.
