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

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?

Socket Shield Technique with Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional
The collapse of the buccal bone and the subsequent recession following teeth extraction is effectively prevented with the socket shield technique. This short presentation goes through the techniques for socket shield preparation of a central incisor as well as the fabrication of an immediate chorused provisional utilizing the patients own crown. Creating a walk out as you walk in scenario. This presentation will show a number of tips and tricks to make this technique as simple as possible. It will also show long term stability of the soft tissue and ridge after 18 months. This technique is one that needs to be in everyones armamentarium. The benefits are unbelievable.

Digital Patient Specific Implant Abutment Options for Optimum Periodontal and Esthetic Results
The evolution of Implant Therapy is at the point of uncompromised clinical results when available technologies are appropriately applied. The restorative clinician working in concert with their laboratory can successfully achieve extraordinary results on a routine basis. The various abutment materials and design parameters will be illustrated by review of clinical / laboratory case studies. Restorative material options will be discussed with a focus on optimum long term clinical performance. New long term provisional technology will also be explored. Cementable and screw retained indications and contra-indications will be reviewed as well as approaches to “problem case” solutions.

Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal Premium Member Content

Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal
To date, enhancement to implant surface technology has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Trabecular Metal has changed all that. This is because Trabecular Metal allows for true bone 'in-growth' rather than just on-growth. This webinar will highlight, in detail, this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols. In addition, techniques for immediate provisionalization of this implant will also be covered in an accompanying surgical video.

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy
There is often some degree of atrophy in sites planned for implant placement. An array of therapeutic options is available for implant placement in sites with vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible and tilted implants. Short implants have been systematically evaluated as an alternative in sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes comparable to standard-length implants. Decision making for selection of appropriate therapeutic modality for sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy has to consider many theoretical, surgical and prosthetic considerations. Surgical and prosthetic guidelines will be provided for application of short implants for posterior sites with limited vertical height.

Extraction and implant placement is a functionally predictable therapeutic modality. Esthetic predictability, however, can sometimes prove elusive. This is especially true for the implant replacement of severely compromised anterior teeth with hard and soft tissue deficiencies within the esthetic zone.

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.
