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

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

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping Premium Member Content

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Healing of Osseotite Implants- After 2 months

Healing of Osseotite Implants- After 2 months
A growing number of clinical studies show that early (2 months) and immediate loading protocols may be predictable. However, they are based on clinical stability only. The aim of this case report was to document the osseointegration status of two Osseotite implants after 2 months of healing in soft bone corresponding to type IV and subjected to two distinct mechanical environments. A completely edentulous patient received a total of 11 Osseotite implants in the mandible. Six were immediately loaded…

Significance of Crown Shape in the Replacement of a Central Incisor with a Single Implant-Supported Crown

Significance of Crown Shape in the Replacement of a Central Incisor with a Single Implant-Supported Crown
When utilizing a single implant-supported crown to replace a central incisor, understanding the final shape of the implant restoration is an important factor to help achieve a successful esthetic outcome. In today's dentistry, tooth shape is a critical factor when dental implant prosthesis are considered in the esthetic zone. The goal of this study was to objectively analyze the significance of natural crown shape when replacing a central incisor with a single implant-supported crown. Data analysis revealed that is there is a "black triangle", a diastema, or presence of dental or gingival asymmetry, an additional restoration on the adjacent central incisor is often required in order to fulfill esthetic goals. The additional restoration is highly recommended in situations with a triangular crown shape, while it is suggested in cases of square/tapered and square tooth shapes in the presence of a dental diastema.
