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.

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy
There is often some degree of atrophy in sites planned for implant placement. An array of therapeutic options is available for implant placement in sites with vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible and tilted implants. Short implants have been systematically evaluated as an alternative in sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes comparable to standard-length implants. Decision making for selection of appropriate therapeutic modality for sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy has to consider many theoretical, surgical and prosthetic considerations. Surgical and prosthetic guidelines will be provided for application of short implants for posterior sites with limited vertical height.

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations Premium Member Content

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.

CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

Dental Implants: Mastering Esthetics in the Smile Zone
The key to contemporary restorative dentistry is the fabrication of healthy, maintainable, esthetic, and functional prostheses. The true success of any restoration is reliant on the creation of an “illusion of reality,” regardless of the restorative modality used (eg, porcelain laminate veneers, crowns, and/or implant-supported prostheses). Developments and advances to the restorative armamentarium have significantly improved the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable and reliable treatments. Osseointegration…
