Implant Aesthetic Score for Evaluating the Outcome

Implant Aesthetic Score for Evaluating the Outcome
Implant restorations delivered according to the Brånemark protocol have proven to be highly predictable. To shorten the length of treatment associated with the Brånemark protocol, as well as to preserve soft and hard tissues, newer protocols have focused on reducing or even eliminating the time between tooth extraction and implant placement and between implant placement and prosthetic restoration delivery. The authors present a case in which control of postextraction implant placement, optimal implant…

Osseointegrated Titanium Implants for Maxillofacial Protraction in Monkeys

Osseointegrated Titanium Implants for Maxillofacial Protraction in Monkeys
Titanium implants were placed surgically into the maxillary, zygomatic, frontal, and occipital bones of four pigtail monkeys. After a 4-month healing period, the implants were exposed and abutments were placed. Extraoral traction appliances were then attached to the abutments. The cranial implants were used to support the framework of the traction appliance; those in the facial bones were used to attach springs that delivered a protraction force. The application of force varied among animals. In animal…

Treatment of the Extremely Atrophied Edentulous Maxilla Using Bone Marrow Stem Cells Premium Member Content

Treatment of the Extremely Atrophied Edentulous Maxilla Using Bone Marrow Stem Cells
Treatment of the extremely atrophied edentulous maxilla is one of the most challenging problems in reconstructive surgery. Due to the size of the graft and inherent co-morbidities of these patients they some of the most difficult and challenging to treat requiring multiple surgeries with significant morbidity. The gold standard of care has long been the use of autologous block grafts from the iliac crest prior to implant placement however harvesting bone from the iliac crest comes with significant donor site morbidity. New treatment modalities using minimal invasive procedures and the use of Bone marrow stem cells and growth factors will be discussed.

The Changing Paradigm of Digital Implant Dentistry: Today’s Technology and Tomorrow’s Concepts - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

The Changing Paradigm of Digital Implant Dentistry: Today’s Technology and Tomorrow’s Concepts - Part 1 of 2
Digital technology has revolutionized implant dentistry but not without frustration. Recent advances with hardware, software, and materials now present integrated solutions for the implant team through planning, placement, and restoration. Single implant treatment will be presented for every-day practice, as well as more advanced partial and fully-edentulous techniques. The most efficient and precise workflows through Keystone and its industry partners will give you concrete digital solutions ready for implementation in your practice. At the conclusion of the lecture the speaker will define some different “team structures” for how the surgeon, dentist, and lab could invest in technology and work together.

Zirconia Implants in the Age of 3D Imaging: An Alternative Therapy for Aesthetics and Function Premium Member Content

Zirconia Implants in the Age of 3D Imaging: An Alternative Therapy for Aesthetics and Function
Computer Guiding dental implants provides perfect positioning for mechanics and cosmetic results. The advantages provided by the implant selection utilizing interactive software libraries allows the implantologist to choose the best diameter, length and implant design for the specific surgical site. Zirconia implants can be computer guided and planned with interactive software and will provide enhanced aesthetic results as well as top gingival health due to the multiple advantages of zirconia. The purpose of this lecture is to describe an alternative procedure to computer guide Zirconia Implants in the aesthetic zone and to manage the functional aspects related to loading and functional requirements for a long lasting stability of the case.
