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?

Sorry! False alarm! The video is good but the sound isn't very famous! The apresentation is very good with good tips!Well done!

Carlos; It plays fine for me. Wait like Sam says. Have a question for Aldo, his thoughts about All on 4 vs. 5 or 6 implants? From a Prosthetic standpoint? thanks Band

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

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.

Over the past 20 years, many of us have been confused, frustrated, unsure and crazy about ... “How do I get my occlusion philosophy on the right path?” At NYU FMR we have developed tried and true techniques that are guaranteed to make you understand occlusion, contact points and mandibular movement that makes sense, is easy to diagnose and systematically treat with success. In addition being comfortable Restoring OVD, understanding TMJ joint position and treating the worn dentition. Using our SOT methods and Level 1-10 Occlusion Classification we can show you how to become successful in the “Occlusion” of your patients.

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.

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.

A Biometric Approach to Predictable Treatment of Clinical Crown Discrepancies

A Biometric Approach to Predictable Treatment of Clinical Crown Discrepancies
Dental professionals have long been guided by mathematical principles when interpreting aesthetic and tooth proportions for their patients. While many acknowledge that such principles are merely launch points for a smile design or reconstructive procedure, their existence appears to indicate practitioners’ desire for predictable, objective, and reproducible means of achieving success in aesthetic dentistry. This article introduces innovative aesthetic measurement gauges as a means of objectively quantifying tooth size discrepancies and enabling the clinician to perform aesthetic restorative dentistry with success and predictability.

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes
This article demonstrates the importance of proper surgical and prosthetic principles in achieving esthetic implant results.Successful dental implant therapy in the maxillary anterior dentition requires meticulous attention to surgical and prosthodontic measures. Proper diagnosis, extraction technique, implant selection, and placement significantly impact outcomes. Respect of hard and soft tissue physiology following tooth loss and implant placement requires specific steps be taken. Management tissue contours properly, via regenerative therapy, results in successful framing of the restoration. Provisionalization and definitive restorative therapy also impacts the level of esthetic success.The contours of the temporary abutment and crown develop soft tissue contours for the final restoration. Overcontouring can lead to soft tissue recession and mucosal asymmetry. Design of the definitive crown(s) is crucial for long-term maintenance of esthetically acceptable results.
