Conservative Treament of the Edentulous Mandible

Description:
This presentation includes a candid discussion of the oral health care needs of the approximately 40 million edentulous adults in the USA. Many of these patients cannot afford or are too debilitated to have extensive oral care. There are several extensive and very expensive treatments for these patients that are currently being heavily promoted by companies and the lay press. However, there are less expensive and highly successful ways to treat many more of these patients very adequately including: • Two conventional diameter implants in the canine areas followed by an overdenture • Four small diameter implants in the anterior region followed by an overdenture • Four conventional diameter implants, two in the anterior region and two in the posterior region followed by an overdenture

As usual....pure GC.....practical and useful information for any dentist needing to be re-convinced that Small diameter implants have an important place in dentistry. This never gets old. Martin Goldstein DMD

Maurice Salama - (8/7/2014 7:50 AM)

This must be considered in some patients unwilling or unable to proceed with more sophisticated or expensive procedures to resolve denture issues or with limited bone. But it is often over utilized by doctors with limited or minimal implant training. Dr. Salama

“My First Implant”: Conservative Management of a Failing Posterior Maxillary Tooth
In this 2 Part video case report, “conservative” management of a failing premolar in the posterior maxilla is managed by a Dentist beginner placing their first dental implant at a course at the DentalXP Center in Atlanta. Atraumatic Management of the Extraction Site utilizing Ultrasonic Surgery, Extractor elevators and followed by Socket Grafting with PRGF and mineralized bone allograft is featured in Part 1. Flap Reflection, Drilling sequence, 3D placement of the implant, and simple suturing is highlighted in Part 2. The follow up and evaluation of the healing of the socket graft displayed significant bone volume for implant placement in this conservative staged approach for the “beginner” in Implant Dentistry.

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients Premium Member Content

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.

An implant-supported restoration offers a predictable treatment for tooth replacement. 1–3 Success rates for implants are high. Never the-less,failures that mandate implant removal do occur.This lengthens and complicates the treatment process, 3–7 as well as jeopardize the clinician’s efforts to accomplish satisfactory function and esthetics. For the patient,this usually involves further cost and additional procedures.
