Summary:

This study aimed to evaluate the influence of labial alveolar bone thickness and the corresponding vertical bone loss on postoperative gingival recessions around anterior maxillary dental implants. Using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanning, the temporal changes of three-dimensional images of alveolar bone were monitored to determine hard and soft tissue outcomes of two different implant placement techniques: delayed two-stage and immediate placement. Furthermore, for the delayed two-stage placement, guided bone regeneration was applied using either nonresorbable or resorbable membranes combined with anorganic bovine bone matrix. The comparative results suggested that gingival recessions were significantly lower in delayed two-stage placement, especially when using a nonresorbable membrane, compared to immediate placement, and labial bone thickness, measured by CBCT, offered an effectual indicator to assess gingival recession in the anterior region.

Maintaining Dental Implants
Implant dentistry has become an important treatment regimen in restorative dentistry since outcome predictability became very well-established and recognized for long-term dental implant and restoration success. The increasing number of patients selecting dental implants as a treatment option presents the dental team with the challenge of maintaining these sometimes complex restorations. This article will help the reader to understand the similarity and differences in the periodontal structure…

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla
Following tooth extraction the implant surgeon may select between various implant placement timing and loading protocols. Ideally these are to be determined prior to extraction, be it immediate, early, or late placement. Immediate implant placement even in the aesthetic zone is a literature supported treatment modality with success comparable to alternative placement protocols. Meticulous restorative treatment planning of a tooth destined for extraction is essential. Selecting the appropriate implant and techniques may preserve and ensure natural aesthetics. Utilizing the patient’s own tooth crown can better provisionalize the implant with a ‘walk out as you walk in’ result.

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.

Prosthetic Strategies to Enhance Dental Implant Aesthetics
The principle focus of implant dentistry has changed significantly from the era of ‘Anatomically driven implant placement’ to the current practice of ‘Restoration driven implant placement’. When we now look at the failing dentition in the aesthetic zone we now must immediately consider conversion to implants. We are continually seeking greater control of the peri-implant tissues and ultimately the aesthetics of the restoration. Implant/abutment designs allow us to consider immediate implant replacement, and immediate non-functional loading especially in the aesthetic zone, where preservation of hard and soft tissue is of paramount importance in order follow the principles of aesthetics by maintaining the elements which are already there

How can we best manage the Labial Aspect of Anterior Implants? Premium Member Content

How can we best manage the Labial Aspect of Anterior Implants?
The most common complications related to treatment planning, implant surgical procedures and implant prosthetic procedures will be reviewed. Complications may start with patient evaluation, patient expectation, hard tissue volume, soft tissue thickness, implant selection and diameter. Surgical complications including bone grafting techniques, soft tissue management and 3-dimensional implant placement will be reviewed. A suggested protocol before, during and after implant placement will be suggested to optimize results.

Implant Esthetics: Recognizing Pitfalls and How to Avoid Problems
In this Webinar on Implant Esthetics, Dr Stanley describes the "No Half Smiles" philosophy that he practices. An emphasis is placed on both the clinical and technical requirements necessary for delivering consistent successful esthetic results in everyday practice. In addition, several techniques are demonstrated to make patient management through this process more efficient. As Dr. Stanley states" the challenges of getting it right are many but avoiding complications is vital to the success of our daily practice.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.
