Summary:

As dental implant reconstruction has evolved into a mainstream alternative to replace missing teeth, bone grafting techniques have also evolved as an ancillary procedure for site development, sinus augmentation, and guided bone regeneration. Concurrently, imaging technologies have been developed which allow unsurpassed inspection of the dental alveolar complex, providing clinicians with innovative tools to plan for dental implant reconstruction. The ability to diagnose and treat dental implants have been forever changed by the ability to assess patient anatomy using Computed Tomography (CT), Cone Beam (CBCT), and interactive treatment planning software within the universal standard "language" of data called DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). This increased ability has been expanded to include appraisal of bone grafting receptor and donor sites through innovations in the interpretation of three dimensional data. In the completely edentulous mandible or maxilla, the use of CBCT technology is an essential tool for assessing anatomy in preparation for implants or grafting. The ability to visualize the extent of a defect from various angles, views, and 3-D reconstructions has helped to define a new set of diagnostic paradigms. A two-dimensional panoramic reconstruction of the maxilla can provide a good scout film of the anatomy; however, as a two-dimensional modality, it has inherent limitations and distortion. The right and left maxillary alveolar bone height can be approximated, and the relative size of the bilateral maxillary sinuses or extent of pnuematization can be assessed in relation to the underlying bone and nasal cavity. However, it is not until all possible two-dimensional and 3D views have been examined that the actual bone anatomy can be appreciated and assessed in relation to the planned reconstruction.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…

In this lecture you will learn several alternatives for the full arch rehabilitation of the jaws with different degrees of resorption. Several cases will be presented step-by-step with high-quality pictures for each technique explained. The main goals are to avoid complex regeneration procedures, to avoid zigomatic surgery and to still be able to perform immediate loading in the most compromised scenarios. All-on-Four technique, palatal approach technique, pterygoid implants and the most recent Subperiosteal Implants are some of the key-concepts presented.
