Implant Supported Overdentures - Design Clinical Techniques and Tooth Selection

Description:
Dental implant overdenture therapy is a treatment modality with the potential of significantly improving the quality of our patient's lives. In order to accomplish consistent and predictable treatment outcomes in general practice, an understanding of the fundamental principles of implant biomechanics, prosthetic, surgical and treatment planning considerations is required. Dr. Aldo Leopardi's objective for this presentation is to focus on advanced clinical techniques and concepts for overdenture and fixed restoration of the completely edentulous patient.

Unable to access video. Any way to re-send a link?

Very nice presentation, Dr. Leopardi. My concern about hybrid FPDs is mainly due to the fact that repair is difficult, especially when the acrylic teeth wear down and we have no temporary for the patient if we have to send it back to a lab. What's your opinion/experience on that?

Patrik and Imad; The Video is at the Bottom Left of the Homepage and it is playing perfectly well for me. Let it buffer if you internet connection is a bit slow as it is an hour long video playing off a server and may need extra time to load if your connection is slow. Aldo did a great job! Sam

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, softwares and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.

The "Hybrid Abutment": A New Design for Implant Cemented Restorations in the Esthetic Zones

The "Hybrid Abutment": A New Design for Implant Cemented Restorations in the Esthetic Zones
Cemented implant restorations are widely used by many dentists. The traditional abutment design resembles a natural tooth prepared for a crown with a similar taper and a chamfer finish line. A frequent complication associated with implant restorations in the esthetic zones is the recession of buccal gingiva over time. Abutment morphology, among several other prosthetic factors, may play an important role in the stability of gingival margin in esthetically sensitive areas, but this has never been thoroughly analyzed. With many considerations in mind and recent techniques released, this article proposes the "hybrid abutment: design (HAD), a new design that includes a combination of the two types of features - a feather edge on the buccal side, and a chamfer finish line on the lingual side. This article also presents a rationale for the use of different abutment designs for different situations.
