Implant Abutment Design and Selection

Description:
In this lecture Dr. Gehrke outlines the impact of abutment design and selection on developing esthetic peri-implant soft tissue outcomes. Emphasis is placed on the rigidity of the connection, subgingival contours, and emergence profile of the healing, temporary and final abutments. Stock precontoured abutments, custom contoured abutments, and cad cam generated contours are all discussed.

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.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach
Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: This study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated implants placed in extraction sockets. This protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability of long-term results.

Root Fracture During Insertion of Prefabricated Posts

Root Fracture During Insertion of Prefabricated Posts
The consequence of inappropriate post selection and/ or hasty insertion can result in tooth fracture and/or loss. It has been demonstrated that conical or parallel sided post design has a direct effect on root fracture during post insertion. However, during experimentation it became apparent that root size and its relationship to post size had a direct effect on root fracture. This article correlates root size, post size, and fracture rate during insertion of prefabricated posts.
