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?

Modern technology can dramatically cut the time and number of visits for a complex implant case while greatly improving the precision of the final result. The great advantage of the processes shown in this presentation is that the clinician retains full control of precision implant placement, emergence profile development and the construction and aesthetics of the final rehabilitation.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.

This presentation includes a candid discussion of the oral health care needs of the approximately 40 million edentulous adults in the USA. Many of these patients cannot afford or are too debilitated to have extensive oral care. There are several extensive and very expensive treatments for these patients that are currently being heavily promoted by companies and the lay press.

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla
Following tooth extraction the implant surgeon may select between various implant placement timing and loading protocols. Ideally these are to be determined prior to extraction, be it immediate, early, or late placement. Immediate implant placement even in the aesthetic zone is a literature supported treatment modality with success comparable to alternative placement protocols. Meticulous restorative treatment planning of a tooth destined for extraction is essential. Selecting the appropriate implant and techniques may preserve and ensure natural aesthetics. Utilizing the patient’s own tooth crown can better provisionalize the implant with a ‘walk out as you walk in’ result.

Management of Retrograde Peri-Implantitis by Apical Resection and Guided Bone Regeneration in Adjacent Maxillary Implants

Management of Retrograde Peri-Implantitis by Apical Resection and Guided Bone Regeneration in Adjacent Maxillary Implants
Retrograde peri-implantitis (RPI) is defined as a clinically symptomatic periapical lesion that develops shortly after implant insertion while the coronal portion of the implant sustains a normal bone-to-implant interface. A 61-year-old male was screened and evaluated for three maxillary anterior implants placed 10 years previously. Evaluation included a thorough periodontal and dental exam, radiographs, and cone-beam computed tomography. Probing depths around all implants ranged from 2 to 4 mm with no bleeding on probing/mobility. The apices of implants #8 and #9 exhibited radiolucencies, and a draining fistula was associated with implant #8. Treatment consisted of sectioning and removal of the affected portion of the implants and collection of a specimen for histopathologic examination. Resection of the apical portion of implants is a viable treatment modality in the management of RPI.

Immediate Occlusal Loading (IOL) of Dental Implants: Predictable Results Through DIEM Guidelines

Immediate Occlusal Loading (IOL) of Dental Implants: Predictable Results Through DIEM Guidelines
In recent years, the immediate loading of dental implants has become more accepted as a standard protocol for the treatment of the fully edentulous mandible. The pioneers in implant dentistry often tried this technique but only achieved mixed success. One of the main reasons for the failure of these early attempts was the lack of understanding of the biological and mechanical principles that we now know are necessary for clinical success.
