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.

Immediate Fixed Rehabilitations with the use of Axial and Tilted Implants
During the last decades, materials and techniques have improved continuously and immediate loading has been revealed a predictable and reliable procedure, especially for full-arch rehabilitations. The aim of this webinar is to feature surgical of prosthetic aspect of immediate loading rehabilitations like All-on-4, V-II-V, Trans-sinus Tilted Implants and Zygoma Implants, thanks the resolutions of clinical cases. Successful long term outcomes could be achieved with a proper learning curve of the all dental team and with the use of high-quality materials.

Prosthetic Strategies to Enhance Dental Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Strategies to Enhance Dental Implant Aesthetics
The principle focus of implant dentistry has changed significantly from the era of ‘Anatomically driven implant placement’ to the current practice of ‘Restoration driven implant placement’. When we now look at the failing dentition in the aesthetic zone we now must immediately consider conversion to implants. We are continually seeking greater control of the peri-implant tissues and ultimately the aesthetics of the restoration. Implant/abutment designs allow us to consider immediate implant replacement, and immediate non-functional loading especially in the aesthetic zone, where preservation of hard and soft tissue is of paramount importance in order follow the principles of aesthetics by maintaining the elements which are already there

Current Concepts in Immediate Implants Premium Member Content

Current Concepts in Immediate Implants
Immediate implants have several advantages over traditional phased implant placement. Shortened treatment time and a single surgical procedure are among some of these benefits. Although the surgical techniques can be more challenging, immediate implants can be a predictable treatment modality in both the esthetic zone and molar sites. This presentation will discuss immediate implant placement and temporization in the esthetic zone as well as immediate replacement of molar sites using regular platform implants. More advanced technical procedures, including simultaneous sinus augmentation and guided bone regeneration will also be discussed.

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes and Soft Tissue Manipulation
As osseointegration of endosseous dental implants has become predictable and well-documented, the emphasis in dental- implant treatment has shifted from functional concerns to the achievement of long-term aesthetic results. An adequate alveolar bone base is the prerequisite for functional and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft-tissue architecture. This is true for both fixed partial denture (FPD) pontic sites and dental implant sites. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone…

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants
As patient demand increases for more natural restorations in the esthetic zone, clinicians must have the highest level of skill and knowledge to maintain or reform the interdental papilla between teeth, between implants and teeth, and between adjacent implants. To date, there are no reports that have measured the distance from the contact point to the bony crest between implants. One reason for this may be the fact that, with two adjacent implants, the contact point of the crown can be established at any distance from the gingival margin according to the restorative dentist's specifications. Therefore, in this study, the height of the soft tissue to the crest of bone was measured between two adjacent implants independent of the location of the contact point. The purpose of this study was to determine the range and average height of tissue between two adjacent implants.
