Summary:

Remodeling of a symphysial donor area enable reuse of the site for additional harvesting. Intraoral bone sources could serve as a long-lasting renewable source of high-quality bone.

Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement Using Choukroun’s Platelet-Rich Fibrin as the Sole Grafting Material: A Radiologic and Histologic Study at 6 Months
Sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement without bone graft material is a hotly debated technique. This technique could be improved and secured by the use of an autologous leukocyte-and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) (Choukroun’s technique) concentrate. The objectives of this study were to assess the relevance of PRF clots and membranes as the sole filling material during a lateral sinus lift with immediate implantation using radiologic and histologic analyses in a case series.

Contaminated Implants Raise Global Concern Among Dentists

Contaminated Implants Raise Global Concern Among Dentists
There is a problem that many implantologists are not aware of: recent analyses of dental implants using scanning electron microscopy indicate that an alarming number of sterile-packaged implants are contaminated. The authors assumed that either foreign particles had found their way into the osseous bed during the implant placement procedure or the implant material itself was contaminated.

Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth Premium Member Content

Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth
The use of ultrasound applied to surgery has changed some of the most frequent clinical procedures, such as the extraction of third parties molars included, thus spreading an innovative concept in all dentistry: piezoelectric surgery or piezosurgery. Unlike implantology, it is a branch now widespread among dentists, extractive surgery still represents a "taboo" for many colleagues, who while practicing surgery daily implant, prefer to leave the avulsions often to maxillofacial surgeons or oral surgeons, considering it an intervention of greater complexity and often a source of anxiety and stress for the operator. So taking care of about 10 years of simple and complex extractive surgery I had the need to elaborate a lecture in which they are described in a simple and linear way the surgical techniques for the avulsion of the dental elements included, to provide a repeatable and predictable approach and method in order to reduce their invasiveness and traumaticity procedures.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia Premium Member Content

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional Premium Member Content

Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition for sub-optimal esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly; including scenarios where tooth preservation may be the preferred alternative. Provided that an immediate implant placement and provisionalization technique is utilized, single tooth implant sites without soft or hard tissue defects offer the most potential for predictable esthetic outcomes. This presentation will feature a comprehensive description of the protocol currently utilized at the University of Pennsylvania’s Periodontal Prosthesis program, including a discussion of the treatment rationale and technique considerations.
