Summary:

The purpose of this article is to prospectively assess the outcome of immediate rehabilitation of extremely atrophic mandibles by a full-arch fixed bridge anchored to four implants. All patients were followed for a minimum of 1 year (range 20–48 months, mean 30.1 months). No failures were recorded to date. The 1-year implant survival rate and prosthesis success rate were 100%.Marginal bone loss around axial and tilted implants was similar at 12-month evaluation, being, respectively, 0.6 1 0.3 (standard deviation) mm and 0.7 1 0.4 mm. High patient’s level of satisfaction was recorded for function, phonetics, and aesthetics.

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.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

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.

The Implant Supra-Crestal Complex: Building the Foundation for Long-Term Stable Results in Implant Therapy - Part 1 of 2
Emerging evidence points towards significant interrelations between the condition of the peri-implant tissue and the implant-abutment-prosthesis complex. A new paradigm is essential, where the peri-implant tissues will be analysed in close interrelation with the implant, abutment and prosthesis complex, under the presence of oral biofilm. The aim of this course is to make the participant familiar with the concept of the “Implant Supra-crestal Complex” (ISC) and describe the critical elements that define it as a unique anatomic, and functional system of human tissues, mechanical components and oral bacteria / biofilm.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.
