Summary:

Achieving optimal esthetic restorative results associated with anterior extraction and tooth replacement continues to be one of the most challenging endeavors in reconstructive cosmetic dentistry. When implant therapy is the treatment of choice, the margin for error is further decreased dramatically and methods to minimize and/or eliminate the potential for failure must be employed. This is especially relevant when the tooth to be extracted is associated with significant hard and soft tissue deficiencies. Assessing the patient's expectations, establishing a thorough diagnosis, and choosing the optimal therapeutic options to sequence and design treatment are key considerations for predictable success. Part 1 of this two-part article describes just such a clinical challenge related to the replacement of a severely compromised central incisor, with special emphasis placed on the utilization of pre-extraction orthodontic therapy to enhance the hard and soft tissue profile of the future implant receptor.

Clinical Investigation of an Immediate Load Protocol Using Axial & Tilted Implants to Treat Patients with Failing Dentition or Complete Edentulism
The clinical investigation evaluated a specific surgical/prosthetic protocol for full-arch fixed dental restorations supported by immediate loaded axial & axial tilted implants, as well as the verall prosthetic survival rate. Mid-study results confirmed that immediate loading of axial & tilted implants following the studied protocol provides a viable treatment modality for the rehabilitation of edentulous arches & terminal dentition.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) in Everyday Practice: Part 1
This presentation outlines the evidence-based, biological, esthetic and technical aspects of utilizing Partial Extraction Therapy (PET), such as Socket Shield technique, in everyday practice. Combining PET with Endoret® Graft, on immediate post extraction implant placement, seems to be an effective way to maintain anatomy, minimizing bone level's change after the bone remodeling period, and maximizing the aesthetic outcome, due to adequate soft tissue's levels and contour.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.
