Summary:

Immediate loading of endosseous implants is becoming a widespread therapeutic procedure for the rehabilitation of patients with edentulous jaws. The purpose of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the long-term success rate of endosseous implants placed in the edentulous lower jaw and loaded on either the same day of surgery or the next day. Nineteen patients were enrolled in the study. Eleven patients, accounting for 64 implants, received their provisional prosthesis the same day of implant placement, and 8 patients, accounting for 52 implants, were rehabilitated the day after surgery. All patients were rehabilitated by a hybrid prosthesis supported by 5 to 6 Osseotite implants. Two implants failed in the group of patients who had their implants loaded the same day (96.9% success rate), whereas 1 implant failed in the other group (98.1% success rate). The overall implant success rate was 97.4%. All failures occurred within 2 months of function. No other complication was reported. The mean follow-up for this interim report was 37.8616.5 months (range 8–65 months). Crestal bone loss was similar to that reported for standard delayed loading protocols. The results of this study suggest that the rehabilitation of the edentulous lower jaw by an immediate occlusally loaded implantsupported hybrid prosthesis is equally successful when loading is applied the same day or the day after implant placement. Immediate loading with 5 to 6 implant-supported prostheses represents a viable alternative treatment to classic delayed loading protocols.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...

Implant Treatment Sequencing

Implant Treatment Sequencing
Periodontal or endodontic related osseous infections of natural teeth may complicate implant treatment. Staging of the surgical aspects of the treatment is important to achieve the desired restorative objectives. Additionally, when cosmetic correction of adjacent natural teeth is required as part of the overall treatment, the final result will be influenced by proper sequencing. Implant surgical placement in immediate extraction sites has been well documented in the literature as a successful treatment…

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy
This article suggests a strategy to provide a more predictable protocol for esthetic implant treatment for multiple- tooth defects using the root submergence technique (RST). The RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site, which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and assists in the creation of an esthetic result in adjacent multipletooth- replacement cases.

Management of Narrow and Short Ridge Dimensions in Implant Dentistry: New Minimally Invasive Concepts
The management of narrow and short ridge dimensions has posed a great concern for most implantologists. Often large GBR or block augmentation procedures are suggested with high morbidity but this lecture presents more minimally invasive options to restore these ridge challenges. Ridge Expansion with motorized drills as well as the utilization of ultra-short and wider implants to avoid sinus and nerve proximity challenges will be discussed. The role of blood born bioactive modifiers, specifically PRGF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors) to enhance wound healing will similarly be highlighted.

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Digital Patient Specific Implant Abutment Options for Optimum Periodontal and Esthetic Results
The evolution of Implant Therapy is at the point of uncompromised clinical results when available technologies are appropriately applied. The restorative clinician working in concert with their laboratory can successfully achieve extraordinary results on a routine basis. The various abutment materials and design parameters will be illustrated by review of clinical / laboratory case studies. Restorative material options will be discussed with a focus on optimum long term clinical performance. New long term provisional technology will also be explored. Cementable and screw retained indications and contra-indications will be reviewed as well as approaches to “problem case” solutions.
