Summary:

Background: Following tooth extraction and immediate implant installation, the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes substantial bone modeling and the ridge dimensions are reduced.
Objective: The objective of the present experiment was to determine whether the process of bone modeling following tooth extraction and immediate implant placement was influenced by the placement of a xenogenic graft in the void that occurred between the implant and the walls of the fresh extraction socket.
Material and methods: Five beagle dogs about 1 year old were used. The 4th premolar in both quadrants of the mandible (4P4) were selected and used as experimental sites. The premolars were hemi-sected and the distal roots removed and, subsequently, implants were inserted in the distal sockets. In one side of the jaw, the marginal buccal-approximal void that consistently occurred between the implant and the socket walls was grafted with Bio-Oss Collagen while no grafting was performed in the contra-lateral sites. After 6 months of healing, biopsies from each experimental site were obtained and prepared for histological analyses.
Results: The outline of the marginal hard tissue of the control sites was markedly different from that of the grafted sites. Thus, while the buccal bone crest in the grafted sites was comparatively thick and located at or close to the SLA border, the corresponding crest at the control sites was thinner and located a varying distance below SLA border.
Conclusions: It was demonstrated that the placement of Bio-Oss Collagen in the void between the implant and the buccal-approximal bone walls of fresh extraction sockets modified the process of hard tissue healing, provided additional amounts of hard tissue at the entrance of the previous socket and improved the level of marginal bone-to-implant contact.

Maintaining Dental Implants
Implant dentistry has become an important treatment regimen in restorative dentistry since outcome predictability became very well-established and recognized for long-term dental implant and restoration success. The increasing number of patients selecting dental implants as a treatment option presents the dental team with the challenge of maintaining these sometimes complex restorations. This article will help the reader to understand the similarity and differences in the periodontal structure…

Immediate Custom Implant Provisionalization: A Prosthetic Technique
This article outlines a provisionalization technique that can be performed after traditional healing of the implant site. Upon reading this article, the reader should: Realize that this technique is also effective when immediate implant loading is not possible. Become familiar with the benefits of an immediate customized provisional, including duplicating the emergence profile of the extracted tooth.

Immediate Placement of Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis

Immediate Placement of Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis
Research interest on immediate placement of dental implants has shifted from implant survival toward optimal preservation of soft and hard tissues. The aim of this study is to systematically assess the condition of implant survival, peri-implant hard and soft tissue changes, esthetic outcome, and patient satisfaction of immediately placed single- tooth implants in the esthetic zone. A pooled analysis was performed to identify factors associated with survival and peri-implant tissue changes after immediate implant placement. Immediate placement with immediate provisionalization of dental implants in the esthetic zone results in excellent short-term treatment outcome in terms of implant survival and minimal change of peri-implant soft and hard tissue dimensions.

Combining Implant Replacement with Esthetic Restorative Dentistry
Achieving predictable anterior implant esthetics is often a challenge for clinicians. The creation of anterior implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue along with proper implant positioning facilitates predictability in both simple and complex esthetic situations. This presentation focuses on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for the replacement of missing or failing teeth in the esthetic zone. Equal emphasis is placed on the diagnosis and treatment planning, current protocols for optimal 3D implant positioning, periodontal plastic procedures, bone grafting maneuvers, and prosthetic management for optimal anterior implant esthetics.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.
