Summary:

Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: This study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated implants placed in extraction sockets. This protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability of long-term results.

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes and Soft Tissue Manipulation
As osseointegration of endosseous dental implants has become predictable and well-documented, the emphasis in dental- implant treatment has shifted from functional concerns to the achievement of long-term aesthetic results. An adequate alveolar bone base is the prerequisite for functional and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft-tissue architecture. This is true for both fixed partial denture (FPD) pontic sites and dental implant sites. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone…

Clinical and Esthetic Outcomes of the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol in the Anterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Clinical and Esthetic Outcomes of the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol in the Anterior Maxilla
A multicenter cohort clinical investigation evaluated the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with immediate placement and provisionalization in anterior extraction sockets. Following the surgical veneer grafting (SVG) protocol, a combination of a bone and connective tissue graft (CTG) was performed in 37 patients to compensate for the natural hard and soft tissue remodeling to achieve a sustainable and predictable esthetic outcome in patients with a thing gingival phenotype. The patients were followed for an average of 39 months (range of 10 to 58 months). At the four-year recall, 61% of the fixtures were evaluated. All 37 implants were successfully integrated, demonstrating stable and healthy peri-implant soft tissues as documented by standard clinical parameters. The results showed an average volume gain of 0.68 mm in the tissue zone, compared to the initial situation.

Facial Development, Continuous Tooth Eruption, and Mesial Drift as Compromising Factors for Implant Placement

Facial Development, Continuous Tooth Eruption, and Mesial Drift as Compromising Factors for Implant Placement
The replacement of teeth lost by children because of trauma can be an important indication for early implant therapy. Osseointegrated dental implants, like ankylosed teeth, alter position as growth-related changes occur within the jawbones (displacement, remodeling, mesial drift). Facial growth of the child and even of the adolescent, as well as the continuous eruption of the adjacent anterior teeth, create significant risk of a less favorable esthetic and/or functional outcome. For patients with…

DSD & Architecture of the Full Arch Patient; From Scan to Plan to Delivery

DSD & Architecture of the Full Arch Patient; From Scan to Plan to Delivery
This presentation will take the audience step by step through the entire full arch process from consult to evaluation to records and team interaction to final delivery. The importance of engaging our patients through DSD (Digital Smile Design) to gain their acceptance of our vision prior to the planning of our cases with the implant surgeon and lab tech will be featured. The process of prosthetic conversion on the day of surgery and the planning of bone reduction and implant positioning will be highlighted. The emotional side of this process from the patient's perspective will allow us a peek into the magnitude of our responsibility.

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.

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.
