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?

Soft Tissue Grafting Around Compromised Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Dental implant esthetics can be challenging, but these challenges are magnified when a patient has had multiple failed implant and bone grafting surgeries.  This video demonstrates the treatment of one such case.  This is a surgical video demonstrating the VIP-CT (Vascularized Interpositional Connective Tissue) graft.  While multiple treatment options exist, this start-to-finish video highlights the patient's initial presentation, the surgical technique, and the final outcome at 2 years.

CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry

Clinical Outcome of Submerged vs. Non-Submerged Implants Placed in Fresh Extraction Sockets

Clinical Outcome of Submerged vs. Non-Submerged Implants Placed in Fresh Extraction Sockets
The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcome of submerged vs. nonsubmerged tapered implants placed into fresh extraction sockets. The results showed statistically significant differences between the two groups in the mean value of keratinized tissue (KT) height after surgery that was significantly reduced for submerged implants when compared with transmucosal implants. Similar outcomes were found for submerged and non-submerged implants placed in fresh extraction sockets with a horizontal peri-implant defect smaller than 2mm, except for a reduction of KT in the submerged group. Either with a submerged or a nonsubmerged procedure, 1mm of mean soft tissue recession is seen after 1 year when compared with the pre-extraction situation.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...

A New Implant Design for Crestal Bone Preservation: Initial Observations and Case Report

A New Implant Design for Crestal Bone Preservation: Initial Observations and Case Report
Following the exposure and restoration of two-piece dental implants, some change in the vertical level of the peri-implant crestal bone height has been reported. This change in crestal bone height has not, however, negatively impacted long-term implant success. This article describes how the concept of platform switching is incorporated into a new implant design as a means of reducing or eliminating the occurrence of crestal bone loss. Preliminary observations from clinicians utilizing this new implant design are herein presented.
