Summary:

A growing number of clinical studies show that early (2 months) and immediate loading protocols may be predictable. However, they are based on clinical stability only. The aim of this case report was to document the osseointegration status of two Osseotite implants after 2 months of healing in soft bone corresponding to type IV and subjected to two distinct mechanical environments. A completely edentulous patient received a total of 11 Osseotite implants in the mandible. Six were immediately loaded to support a provisional fixed partial denture, and five were left submerged. After 2 months, two submerged and one immediately loaded implants were retrieved and processed for histologic analysis. All immediately loaded implants were clinically stable. One histologic section per implant was obtained. All implants achieved osseointegration. The bone-implant contact was 38.9% for the submerged implant and 64.2% for the immediately loaded one. In the marrow space, both implants were covered by thin, neoformed bone trabeculae. Osseointegration can be achieved after 2 months by Osseotite implants placed in soft bone in the mandible either when immediately loaded and splinted into a provisional denture retained on six implants, or when submerged and unloaded.

Instrumentation for Modern Day Implant Surgery
Public awareness of the aesthetic possibilities through the replacement of missing or nonsalvageable teeth has been elevated with advances in dental implant therapy and related hard and soft tissue regenerative therapies. This has led to an increase in the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by either natural teeth, dental implants, or removable prostheses anchored by implants rather than conventional tissue- or tooth-supported partial dentures.

The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this case enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device.

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics
In this presentation Dr. Carlo Poggio delves into the biomechanics and clinical relevance of proper occlusal management in implant dentistry. Combining a thorough review of the literature with clinical dental applications, Dr. Poggio attempts to suggest a rational for designing the occlusion for implant restorations. Topics covered include comparison of occlusal management for teeth and implants. In addition, the importance of controlling the occlusal forces to protect the bone-implant interface from overload and the role of occlusion in peri-implant microbial infection.
