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.

Simultaneous and Integrated Surgical and Restorative Protocols in Immediate Anterior Implant Therapy
This presentation outlines in detail the biological, surgical and restorative processes that must be understood and integrated optimally in immediate anterior implant therapy in order to achieve efficient, predictable and esthetic outcomes. In addition, immediate loading of single and full arch cases as well as computer guided surgery will be elucidated upon.

Extraction Site Management: Technical Aspects and Biologics
In this lecture and video case report, “conservative” management of posterior maxillary extraction sites are highlighted featuring new tools, techniques and biologics. How to extract teeth to preserve the socket environment using piezosurgery and extractor instruments is followed by simplified grafting with a synthetic bone substitute and biologic seal. After 4 months, the video 2nd surgery is clearly displayed with flap reflection, bone assessment and implant placement in a conservative staged approach. This is followed by final suturing using a running mattress.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants
Titanium endosseous implants have been increasingly used in various edentulous situations for well over a decade. Cigarette smoking has long been suspected as adversely affecting wound healing. Arteriolar vasoconstriction and decreased blood flow are seen in response to smoking. In the oral cavity,an increase in plaque accumulation,a higher incidence of gin-givitis and periodontitis,a higher rate of tooth loss,and an increased resorption of the alveolar ridge have been found among smokers.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.

Implant Aesthetic Score for Evaluating the Outcome

Implant Aesthetic Score for Evaluating the Outcome
Implant restorations delivered according to the Brånemark protocol have proven to be highly predictable. To shorten the length of treatment associated with the Brånemark protocol, as well as to preserve soft and hard tissues, newer protocols have focused on reducing or even eliminating the time between tooth extraction and implant placement and between implant placement and prosthetic restoration delivery. The authors present a case in which control of postextraction implant placement, optimal implant…
