Keys to Successful Implants within the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2

Description:
In this first of a two part presentation, Dr. Michael Sonick outlines the keys to successfully placing implants in the anterior region. This section emphasizes the need for precise treatment planning so that proper 3-dimensional implant positioning can be achieved. A detailed understanding of the mesial-distal, buccal-palatal and incisal-apical surgical positioning of dental implants will be explored.

Questions & Comments

Simon
I agree with Dr Salama. The papilla sparing incision is one that I do not use very frequently for it leads to papilla compromise via a loss of blood supply as well as scaring as Maurice pointed out. The key for papilla is the bone. If you have the bone and the contact point is in the correct place you will have the papilla. Mike Sonick

Simon; Unsure about Dr. Sonick's response but I personally do not like the "papilla saving" incision. I feel it is over utilized and often restricts blood supply to the flap and forces the surgeon to graft and place the membrane over the incision line. It often causes scar formation which could be a negative in the esthetic zone. Dr. Salama

Dr Sonick,why you do not recommend papilla saving incision?I have attended a course focusing on soft tissue management recently and the lecturer who was a periodontist was actually recommending this type of flap design.

Jeffrey,

This presentation focussed on the needed biologic concepts in order to idealize the placement of implants. I specifically utilized long term follow up in order to demonstrate long term follow up and to demonstrate the longevity of the results when biologic principles are followed.

Today - many of us are focused on the "new and improved". Fact is biology has not changed in the last 30 years. I learned from many of my teachers, Tarnow, Garber,Abrams, Kramer, and many others that as long as biologic prinicples are followed, success will usually occur.

I graft with Connective Tissue when i want to augment the soft tissue. In this presentation, my attempt was to try and use Guided Gingival Growth to enhance soft tissue without having to do a connective tissue graft.

Today, I frequently graft with bone e.g. BioOss and a membrane at the time of initial implant surgery in order to increase the volume buccally. This is called a contour graft and has been described by Danny Buser.

I hope that helps. Connective Tissue Grafting can be done at any of the following times:

1. prior to implant placement
2. At the time of implant placement
3. At the time of second stage surgery
4. Post second stage surgery

Personally, I prefer 3. at the time of second stage surgery if CTG is to be done.

Hope that helps.

Dr. Salama;
I disagree, the images and cases did not appear to support some of the concepts offered. I have seen Dr. Sonick lecture and enjoy his videos on XP but the comments made were fair in this case.
Sam

Maurice Salama - (11/19/2010 9:22 PM)

Jeffrey; It appears to be a lecture aimed at concepts and perhaps not as much a review of current surgical techniques.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment Premium Member Content

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.

Significance of Crown Shape in the Replacement of a Central Incisor with a Single Implant-Supported Crown

Significance of Crown Shape in the Replacement of a Central Incisor with a Single Implant-Supported Crown
When utilizing a single implant-supported crown to replace a central incisor, understanding the final shape of the implant restoration is an important factor to help achieve a successful esthetic outcome. In today's dentistry, tooth shape is a critical factor when dental implant prosthesis are considered in the esthetic zone. The goal of this study was to objectively analyze the significance of natural crown shape when replacing a central incisor with a single implant-supported crown. Data analysis revealed that is there is a "black triangle", a diastema, or presence of dental or gingival asymmetry, an additional restoration on the adjacent central incisor is often required in order to fulfill esthetic goals. The additional restoration is highly recommended in situations with a triangular crown shape, while it is suggested in cases of square/tapered and square tooth shapes in the presence of a dental diastema.

The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets

The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this case enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device.
