Zirconium Implant Placement, Soft Tissue Graft and Transitional Prosthesis in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2

Description:
This video presentation will highlight the utilization of a One-Piece Zirconium Implant placed into a previously grafted anterior site in combination with a connective tissue graft to maximize the esthetic result. The utilization of zirconium instruments and drills from Z Systems will be highlighted as well as the harvest and suturing of autogenous connective tissue. Proper fabrication of a temporary non-loaded transitional appliance will also be described in a step by step manner utilizing an Essix Retainer from Raintree and denture teeth.

Questions & Comments

Hello Dr. Salama, Do you have the final outcome of this? Regards, Elkie

Mansour; That is a fair question. Zirconium implants do not have the same history that titanium implants have but they are FDA approved and have shown similar success of osseointegration to that of titanium implants. The BIG question is really how the crestal bone will hold up over many years. So far so good.
thanks for the post
Dr. Salama

hi Dr.salama and thanks a lot for sharing but my question is,how do you evaluate zirconium implants?since we are working since many years with titanium implants and we have seen the response in long therm.thanks again.

Maurice Salama - (5/20/2011 7:47 AM)

Francois & Hayfa'a; Yes, there are many studies on Zirconium implants available in the literature. The Z Systems has One-Piece Implants only but there are other Zirconium Implant Systems available that have a 2-Piece product as well. Zirconium has shown an ability to osseointegrate and is quite friendly to the soft tissue as well. thanks Dr. Salama

Excellent presentation Dr. Salama. Do we have study about zirconium implant?

Maurice Salama - (1/26/2011 12:55 PM)

Dr Hayfa'a Bashir; The literature appears to show a similar osseointegration of Zirconium implants as Titanium. Some caveats; the implant is currently available ONLY in One-Piece and requires preparation of the abutment intra-orally and is NOT suggested for immediate loading or temporization. Thank you for your post Dr. Salama

dr. Hayfa'a Bashir - (1/26/2011 7:10 AM)

Hi,Dr.Salama, GREAT!! its nice to use zirconium implant system & Z-instruments instead of Ti -implants for allergic patients. BUT,is the integrity of osseointegration in zirconium implant to bone is similar to that between metal & bone? -Can it used in all bone qualities of jaws? -This system is delivered in (one piece) only??? Thank u,,, Dr. Hayfa'a A. Bashir GBOI-DGZI;batch 2-SUDAN.

Thank you , Dr.Salama .Did you ever consider GBR+CTG for this case ?and the Zirconium implants all made in one piece ?

Maurice Salama - (1/5/2011 10:30 AM)

Dentimp; Great question. As we do not know the fate of the buccal plate's resorption after implant placement, in the esthetic zone Zirconium Implants (shown here) and/or abutments are useful to hide any color change. Additionally the CTG graft (shown here) helps to thicken the attached gingiva and also prevent negative changes to the gingival stability and color even if some labial plate resorption takes place.

The Evolution of Guided Surgery and Case Management Premium Member Content

The Evolution of Guided Surgery and Case Management
The innovation in assisted implant surgery is constantly increasing. This success is due to the fact that guided surgery provides a reliable therapeutic solution. The use of these techniques is not only interesting for implant-supported rehabilitation by immediate loading but also for tissues supporting implants by insuring the best emergence profile.

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.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Prosthodontics, Periodontics & Orthodontics: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Implant Dentistry
Many aspects of various dental disciplines must be integrated to constitute a sound total approach to implant dentistry. Aside from the surgical elements - encompassing implant placement, position, angulation, and length - the creation of appropriate spaces to accommodate the three-dimensional final prostheses may require use of orthodontic techniques as well. And establishing and maintaining a sound periodontal environment is essential to implant integrity, from the outset of placement to finalization of the prosthetic suprastructure.

Anterior Extraction & Implant Placement in a Severely Deficient Site
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.

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.
