Thanks for the wonderful presentation !! Idea and technique is awesome. I just wonder about the success rate of SS technique ?

Jorge, which kind of burs/diamonds do you utilise for sectioning long roots؟specially when the adjacent teeth have long crowns.thanks Masuod

Jorge, in the case where you did socket shield for two adjacent implants, you kept both the buccal and distal root fragments. It looked like you separated the two fragments, what's the reason for separating them? Can you also leave them connected, like a "L" shape? Thank you

Jorge Campos - (10/22/2015 4:31 AM)

Joey, minimum could be 1mmm, and I understand that if the root is dark and grey with aesthetic impairment, perhaps biologically is a good way to mantain bone but with a dark shadow below the gingiva will produce a bad efect. If the discoloration is present I wouldn´t do the SS due to aesthetic reasons. If there isn´t I don´t think it´ll produce on the future. Jorge

Jeffrey, adequate torque is over 40 Nw and buccolingual stability. I don´t understand the question, you mean if I cannot insert the implant at the moment, if we can leave a SS and after 3 months implant? The answer is YES, this is the Glocker suggestion on 2014. They routinelly did this. Extraction leaving the SS and regeneration of the socket. After 3 months full regeneration was obtained. Jorge.

Great presentation,thank you! I have two questions. Is there a recommended thickness for the buccal root fragment? Also, in endodontically treated teeth, sometimes we see darkening of the roots over time. So is it possible that the root fragment will become dark and results in discoloration of the gingival tissue after a few years? Thank you Joey

Jeffrey Gross - (2/15/2015 5:29 PM)

Thank you for a wonderful lecture. I would like to ask a question regarding molar implants. If it is not indicated to place an implant at the time of extraction, due to size of the defect left after extraction. Would you routinely advocate leaving buccal bone and then placing the implant 2-3 months in the future? Also what do you consider adequate torque to load the implant immediately? Thank you

Jorge Campos - (9/25/2014 11:37 AM)

James, thanks for words. Of course, we select the tooth that is periodontally healthy to do the SS tech. But "could" have a decay/ perio disease some day. The nature on dog studies show that there is an osseointegration between SS and implant. Sometimes there is bone in between, some others implant-new cement (root cement). Thanks for your interest. Jorge

James Nager - (9/25/2014 8:08 AM)

Bravo! Very nice presentation, good review of biologic principles. I wonder about perio disease around the remaining tooth fragment, socket shield. Is the socket shield subject to accumulation of local irritant, subject to perio disease, subject to decay? What is the nature of the attachment between the socket shield and the implant surface- bone, soft tissue, hemi-desmisomes?

Implant Removal Made Easy - When Peri-implantitis Treament is Not Possible
In this video and surgical presentation, Dr. Eduardo Anitua demonstrates a step-by-step safe, efficient and predictable surgical/mechanical technique for the removal of implants that are severely compromised by peri-implantitis. In addition, Dr. Anitua will discuss how to manage the regeneration of the site following implant removal through the therapeutic utilization of plasma rich in growth factors, i.e. Endoret.

Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner - Part 2
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials. These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.

Success Rate, Healing Time, and Implant Stability of Photofunctionalized Dental Implants

Success Rate, Healing Time, and Implant Stability of Photofunctionalized Dental Implants
This is the first study to report the clinical outcomes of photofunctionalized dental implants. This retrospective study analyzed 95 consecutive patients who received 222 untreated implants and 70 patients who received 168 photofunctionalized implants over a follow-up period of 2.5 years. Photofunctionalization was performed by treating implants with UV light for 15 minutes using a photo device immediately before placement. Within the limits of this retrospective study, despite the more frequent use of shorter and smaller-diameter implants, the use of photofunctionalization allowed for a faster loading protocol without compromising the success rate.

Prosthetic Management of Implants with Different Osseous Levels
The osseointegrated implant has become a standard treatment with a high degree of predictability for patients missing one or more teeth. It is especially recommended when the patient has a clear medical history and normal bone levels in both width and height in the edentulous areas. In constant search for improvement, clinicians find themselves looking into every element relating to the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth: existing bone structure, surgical technique, implant placement, implant…

Implant Site Preparation with Motorized Bone Expanders
The osteotome technique has been utilized for many years as a viable approach to expand atrophic ridges. Despite its effectiveness, the mechanical impact from the surgical mallet is not well tolerated by patients. Additionally, reports in the literature describe postoperative complications that include concussions and benign paroxysmal vertigo. These conditions can be alarming for the patient and clinician, as their effects may persist for several weeks. A new technique for atraumatic ridge expansion…
