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

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.

I notice that the drill " shadow " appeared during prep ,will the buccal bone be too thin ?

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.
