do you feel that the implant was placed to far apical

1-the use fo bti conseder-expanding can create an augmentation of temperature? 2 the tipe of thread is more aggressive for the bone

I know it has been awhile since this procedure and I am curious as to how successful it was. Also, is there a reason you didn't use prgf this time? Thanks.

Wow, This should increase my tenacity at trying to get the best result possible. Great presentation and look forward to the future care of this patient Thanks

This case as you all eluded to was very challenging. Presntly the patient is wearing a provisional and is going to Ira Dickermans lab to ascertain the color. The ridge was expanded utilizing the motorized BTI expansion burs. I like to use these to expand the ridge, but also use osteotome (altho more traumatic) and piezosurgery. However, the ridge must be thicker for this technique. Thanks for the nice comments and I will be sure to post the finals once the case is completed.

Excellent surgery. It is gratifying to hear someone discussing the challenges(I would not label them as failures)that we often encounter in our attempts to restore lost anatomy. I face these challenges, as do all of us, but most presentations leave me with the impression that there are no complications. Thank you, Dr. Sonick.

Ray Kenzik - (1/8/2010 1:37 PM)

Thank you for the complete narration. This case reflects some of the challenges that I find in many esthetic zone cases. Any chance to see final restoration some day?

Maurice Salama - (12/31/2009 8:40 AM)

Must agree with Robert. It is the "little things" that separate success from failure. That's why reviewing surgical steps in detail are so important in improving one's technique. This includes reviewing videos on this site and/or documenting and reviewing your own cases.
All the best
Dr. Salama

Robert Odegard - (12/31/2009 7:51 AM)

Great Video Dr. Sonic. I like the narration and the photos of the entire case history. I like the fact that you show the failures or I should say challenges and your determination to provide your patient with the best that dentistry can offer.

In this very technical and scientific presentation, Dr. Joseph Choukroun, a physician and researcher from France, describes the benefits of Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) in wound healing. He emphasizes the effect of PRF on the two essential factors of wound healing which are new vessels and cells in surgical sites like extraction sockets, sinus augmentation and more.

Management of the Full Arch Edentulous Patient: Team India Approach Premium Member Content

Management of the Full Arch Edentulous Patient: Team India Approach
The number of fully edentulous patients is on the rise due to higher life expectancy. Also, higher number of young patients are edentulous due to congenital disorders or advanced periodontal disease. Various treatment options are now available to the clinician for treating edentulous patients. However a lot of confusion exists amongst clinicians while choosing the right treatment approach and the correct prosthesis design for such patients. During this lecture, Team India will present a decision tree for treatment planning fully edentulous patients. This will help clinicians to opt for the most suitable prosthetic design for their patients. Critical factors such as age of patient, bone zones, cosmetic display and degree of resorption will be discussed. The importance of a well adjusted interim restoration and the conversion from provisional restoration to the final one utilizing the novel ‘Fast tracking’ technique will be a part of this presentation.

Immediate Implants: Partial / Full Arch Rehabilitation & GBR - Part 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient. We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts
Autogenous bone grafts have been used for many years for alveolar ridge augmentation and are still considered to be the gold standard for jaw reconstruction. The use of these grafts with osseointegrated implants was originally discussed by Brånemark et al., who used the iliac crest as the donor site. For repair of most localized alveolar defects, however, bone grafts from the mandible offer advantages over iliac crest grafts. These include the proximity of donor and recipient sites, convenient surgical access, decreased donor site morbidity and decreased cost. This article focuses on posterior maxillary and mandibular osseous augmentation in a staged approach for implant placement. Both horizontal and vertical deficiencies are addressed with the use of symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor block bone via case presentations.

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement
Failure of a natural tooth may not permit placement of an implant at the time of extraction due to insufficiency in available bone to house the implant. Reconstruction of the extraction socket frequently involves both hard and soft tissue augmentation to provide a site that can house the implant and ridge contours that mimic the adjacent natural anatomy. This situation becomes more problematic in the maxillary anterior due to the anatomy and the lower density of the bone of the premaxilla. The solution is the interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (IVAN), which consists of hard tissue grafts, various barrier membranes, and closure with the pediculated connective tissue graft (PCTG). The modified IVAN (mIVAN) technique achieves the necessary goals and may be used in both delayed and immediate placement situations.
