On the beautiful model, they could have just done a composite bridge between #8 and #10 instead of cutting the good teeth down. Not hard to do and it can be esthetic as well. Just basic bonding.

Bi-Directional Augmentation of Double-Arched Posterior Maxillary Vertical Defects Premium Member Content

Bi-Directional Augmentation of Double-Arched Posterior Maxillary Vertical Defects
Double-arched posterior maxillary defects present a unique challenge requiring special considerations for implant replacement. This deformity is characterized by vertical bone loss from both the sinus aspect as well as the ridge. In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi demonstrates a bi-directional vertical bone augmentation technique to develop sites that not only support the implants but also improve tissue harmony for enhanced aesthetics, function, and longevity.

Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation Premium Member Content

Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation
Every esthetic case is a challenge. As clinicians we need to understand and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results. This clinical case will demonstrate the importance of the little details, and how they influence the final result. We’ll go step by step thought the analyze, planning surgical and prosthetic procedures with focus on the key points that I find to be crucial.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla Premium Member Content

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla
Since the advent of osseointegration, the patient who is edentulous or soon to be edentulated has many options to prevent wearing complete removable prosthesis. In the maxillary arch there are anatomical features that may preclude patients successfully utilizing an implant prosthesis. Some of these include alveolar resorptive changes after extractions, pnuematized sinuses, hard and soft tissue palatal vault configurations, and bone exostosis with associated undercuts. Psychological, many patients suffer after the loss of teeth with loss of self-esteem and avoidance behaviors. This program will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures of the All On Four patient. In this webinar, Dr. Duello will build upon the material provided in previous presentations on DentalXP with detailed guidance on clinical procedures for the All On Four in the maxilla.

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation platelet concentrate widely used to accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages over the better known platelet-rich plasma (PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal expense, and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines. This article serves as an introduction to the PRF “concept” and its potential clinical applications.

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants
Precise fit between dental implants and the superstructure is important for the long term success of implants and implant-supported prostheses. One factor which may influence the accuracy of the definitive prosthesis is the stability of the impression coping in polymerized impression material. In some circumstances, an implant must be placed well below the gingival margin, meaning that most of the impression coping will also be situated subgingivally with no contact with the impression material. This can result in reduced stability of the impression coping, allowing it to rotate when fastening the implant analog. This article describes a simple technique that involves the use of a roll of composite resin, tray adhesive, and a small amount of occlusal registration material applied around a transfer coping in a direct implant impression.
