Defining New Paradigms for Assessment of Implant Receptor Sites Defining New Paradigms for Assessment of Implant Receptor Sites

Author(s):

Scott D. Ganz, DMD

Date Added:

2/26/2010


Summary:

An emerging technology that encompasses computed tomography, cone-beam computed tomography, and interactive software applications has slowly progressed and evolved into a necessary tool for diagnosis, treatment planning, and delivery of dental implant and associated restorative and surgical procedures. The integration of these innovative tools is helping to define new methods for appreciating anatomy, improving accuracy, and enhancing presurgical prosthetic planning to achieve true restorative-driven implant dentistry. This article will demonstrate how computed tomography combined with interactive virtual treatment-planning software applications can empower clinicians with enhanced diagnostic capabilities for implant receptor-site assessment, generating new paradigms that eventually may supersede older methods of presurgical planning for dental implant reconstruction.

Replacement of a Mutilated Maxillary Incisor With a Single Implant Restoration: A Staged Implant
Patients are advised to maintain oral health in order to enjoy function and the natural appearance of their dentition for a lifetime. In the event that oral health becomes impaired, clinicians are capable of restoring it through either conservative or sophisticated treatment modalities. This treatment must be based on sound, rationalized clinical evidence and a clear understanding of the biological and physiological processes involved. Dental professionals must also acknowledge their personal limitations…

Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics

Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics
A load-free healing period has been advocated as a prerequisite to achieving osseointegration. This article reports two cases in which immediate loading of a specially designated additional or "expendable" set of titanium root-form implants was successfully utilized to support provisional fixed restorations in the maxilla and the mandible. This immediate-loading protocol is suggested as a reliable adjunctive therapeutic modality for offering implant patients access to fixed interim restorations…

Informed Consent: Dr. Dennis Tarnow Part 5 of 6
In this 5th of a 6 part interview with Dr. Dennis Tarnow, the very important topic of informed consent is discussed. Key components of this very broad based topic that are discussed include identifying the chief complaint, the patient 's expectations as well as informing the patient about long-term ramifications of a chosen therapeutic modality

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequential lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.
