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.

Transitioning of Teeth to Implants: Risk Assessment for Successful Outcome Premium Member Content

Transitioning of Teeth to Implants: Risk Assessment for Successful Outcome
In the transitioning of teeth to implants, a number of critical risk factors have to be assessed. Dozens of decisions have to be made by clinicians based on consideration of factors, including: esthetic requirements, morphology of extraction socket, biotype of peri-implant soft tissues, implant macro design, implant length and diameter, implant surface texture, management of the horizontal gap between socket and implant, provisionalization and loading protocol. Some of these decisions are guided by scientific evidence, while many of the decisions are typically based on empirical guidelines set by individual opinions. This presentation will provide a rationale and outline a predictable protocol for replacement of teeth with implants.

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know Premium Member Content

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.

Restoration Implant Placement & Site Development

Restoration Implant Placement & Site Development
In any restoration or natural tooth, the surrounding soft-tissue profile plays an integral role in the final esthetics of a case. Similarly in implant restorations, it is no longer sufficient to merely attach a prosthetic device to the underlying fixture, but for optimal esthetics it has become essential for the implant site to be reconstituted in a three-dimensional approach. This invariably involves redevelopment or replacement of lost hard tissue and redevelopment of the correct soft-tissue profile,…
