Summary:

In recent years, dental implants have become an accepted method of replacing missing teeth. Today millions of implants are placed annually to rehabilitate and reestablish patients’ occlusions. However, in many of these individuals, the teeth may be in less than ideal position to accept the integration of single implants or groups of implants with the remaining teeth. Many of these patients could benefit from orthodontics to reposition malposed teeth to enhance the overall occlusal scheme. However, if significant numbers of teeth are missing, the orthodontist is at a disadvantage because of a lack of anchorage to effect the desired tooth movement. Past studies have shown that implants can be used as anchors for both orthopedic and orthodontic movement. However, some studies describing the use of implants for orthodontic anchorage do not recommend utilizing the implant as a restorative abutment after the orthodontic movement. Although nonroot-form onplants and implants can be placed in nonavleolar bone, used for anchorage, and then removed, this type of implant anchorage is not useful in patients having many missing teeth and multiple edentulous spaces. In this type of dental patient, an interdisciplinary approach of placing the implant prior to orthodontics, using it as an orthodontic anchor, and then using the same implant as a restorative abutment may be a more appropriate and cost-effective solution. This chapter will discuss the interdisciplinary management of implants that are used for orthodontic anchorage and as restorative abutments. The article will also describe the indications for implant anchorage, methods of locating the appropriate implant position, timing of orthodontic loading, types of provisional restorations appropriate for attaching orthodontic brackets, and the effects of orthodontic loading on the integrity of osseointegration and final restoration.

Immediate loading of a socket shield (partial extraction therapy) post-extraction implant with the final CAD/CAM crown The ONE protocol for one-day natural aesthetics and preventing buccal collapse
Immediate implant placement is a well-recognised and successful treatment option after tooth extraction.1,2 Success rates for both immediate and delayed implant techniques are comparable; however, the literature reports that one can expect buccal collapse of the original buccal volume and midfacial recession of at least 1mm after immediate implant placement, possibly worse in thin gingival biotypes.3

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

Update on the Socket Shield Technique

Update on the Socket Shield Technique
Socket shield has been around for 10 years. The technique itself has changed since inception in order to help manage potential complications and pitfalls. One of the biggest issues with the technique is that there is no standardised protocol. This short communication is there to set out our step by step protocol on how to predictably carry out the socket shield technique.

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Total Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept
A fixed implant supported prosthesis is the ideal treatment option for the edentulous patient and those facing the imminent loss of their remaining dentition. Through innovation, along with continuous clinical and scientific research, it has become possible to treat virtually every edentulous case with a highly functional and esthetic fixed solution. The oral rehabilitation of these patients has two stages: surgical and prosthetic.
