Summary:

This article presents the results of evaluating the changes in peri-implant soft tissue dimensions associated with immediate implant placement into anterior post-extraction sockets for four treatment groups: no BGPR(bone graft, no provisional restoration), PR (no bone graft, provisional restoration), BG (bone graft, no provisional restoration), and BGPR (bone graft, provisional restoration). The vertical distance of the peri-implant soft tissue was greater for grafted sites than for non-grafted ones. The facial soft tissue thickness at the gingival third was greater for grafted than for non-grafted sites and for sites with provisional restorations compared to sites without them, respectively. The net gain in soft tissue height and thickness was about 1mm. The increases in vertical and horizontal dimensions for grafted sites were between 0.5 and 1.0mm, as compared to sites with no bone graft and no provisional restoration.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and marginal bone level change would exist between axial and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival between rehabilitation's supported only by axial implants or by a combination of axial and tilted implants.

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy
There is often some degree of atrophy in sites planned for implant placement. An array of therapeutic options is available for implant placement in sites with vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible and tilted implants. Short implants have been systematically evaluated as an alternative in sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes comparable to standard-length implants. Decision making for selection of appropriate therapeutic modality for sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy has to consider many theoretical, surgical and prosthetic considerations. Surgical and prosthetic guidelines will be provided for application of short implants for posterior sites with limited vertical height.

Implant Dentistry: The Team Approach Premium Member Content

Implant Dentistry: The Team Approach
In this lecture Dr Stanley will present his "No Half Smiles” Philosophy and how an effective treatment plan and its correct team approach can help save time and stress. For over a decade Dr Stanley and is interdisciplinary team have been working together as a tight unit on complex cases. From the old school approach to the latest DSD surgical planning, with combined Endodontics, Orthodontics and cosmetic implant dentistry, the cases presented will show how his team approaches each individual case for optimal outcome. In this lecture a lot of “behind the scenes” explanations will be given on the why, how and what his team do to get consistent excellent results and manage a stress free environment in his practice.

Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy Premium Member Content

Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy
Dental practice success requires a skill set with multiple facets, many of which fall outside of the clinical realm taught in dental schools and in many CE programs. This program is one a series that will address the "additional" skills and systems that are required to bridge clinical skills into practice success. The first skill set a successful practice must develop is an awareness of the major obstacles to patients accepting treatment and the systems that can be used to minimize those obstacles. Information from areas outside the dental profession can provide insight into the systems that can be used in dentistry to minimize case acceptance issues. The entire dental team needs to utilize the information in this program to get patients to support the optimal treatment options offered by highly skilled dentists.
