Customized Provisional Abutment and Provisional Restoration for an Immediately-Placed Implant Customized Provisional Abutment and Provisional Restoration for an Immediately-Placed Implant

Author(s):

Gerard Lemongello, DMD

Date Added:

Summary:

The use of immediate implant placement and immediate provisionalization techniques are paramount to the maintenance for aesthetic hard and soft tissue structures. This is particularly important when implant-supported restorations are utilized in the aesthetic zone. A purpose of the custom-fabricated provisional abutment and restoration is to guide the hard and soft tissue response during healing. This case presentation depicts the prosthetic technique used by the author to create the final tissue contours and emergence profile for the final restoration.

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.

Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial

Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial
It has been shown that thin mucosal tissues may be an important factor in crestal bone loss etiology. Thus, it is possible that mucosal tissue thickening with allogenic membrane might reduce crestal bone loss. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how implants with traditional connection maintain crestal bone level after soft tissue thickening with allogenic membrane. After 1-year follow-up, implants in group A had 1.65 1 0.08-mm bone loss mesially and 1.81 1 0.06 mm distally. Group B had 0.31 1 0.05 mm mesially and 0.34 1 0.05 mm distally. C group implants experienced bone loss of 0.44 1 0.06 mm mesially and 0.47 1 0.07 mm distally. Differences between A and B, and A and C were significant both mesially and distally, whereas differences between B and C were not significant mesially and distally

Influence of a Nanometer-Scale Surface Enhancement on De Novo Bone Formation on Titanium Implants

Influence of a Nanometer-Scale Surface Enhancement on De Novo Bone Formation on Titanium Implants
In this prospective randomized controlled clinical study, small titanium implants were placed in posterior maxillae for the purpose of assessing the rate and extent of new bone development. Nine pairs of site evaluation implants were placed in posterior areas of maxillae and retrieved with trephine drills after 4 or 8 weeks of unloaded healing. The amount of bone in linear contact (%) with the implant surface was used to determine the osteoconductive potential of the implant surface. Implant surfaces…

Vertical Bone Augmentation Using a Tunnel Approach Step by Step - Part 2 of 2
Bone atrophies are one of the most challenging situations in modern implantology. Several techniques have been proposed to be able to place implants in those atrophic situations. This first presentation will show step by step the Split Bone block technique as described by Dr. Khoury to perform horizontal bone augmentation procedures. Bone biology is also explain in order to understand why this technique offer us some great advantages. The second presentation will focus of vertical bone augmentation procedures using this same technique but through a tunnel approach. The advantages of this approach will also be described in this presentation.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.
