Summary:

Cleft lip and palate maxillofacial prosthodontics is evolving and re-defining treatment approaches via the use of dental implants. A case report is presented demonstrating the use of the sinus lift procedure originally described by Tatum, the placement of osseointegrated root-form implants, and an implant-supported and -retained maxillofacial prosthesis.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.

Maintaining Interimplant Crestal Bone Height Via a Combined Platform-Switched, Laser-Lok Implant/Abutment System: A Proof-of-Principle Canine Study

Maintaining Interimplant Crestal Bone Height Via a Combined Platform-Switched, Laser-Lok Implant/Abutment System: A Proof-of-Principle Canine Study
Interimplant papillae are critical for achieving esthetic implant-supported restorations in the maxillary esthetic zone. Stable papillary anatomy, however, depends upon a stable volume underlying crestal bone for support. Multiple studies have documented a critical interimplant distance of 3mm under which crestal bone resorption occurs. This preclinical proof-of-principle canine study examines a novel implant-abutment system design, combining platform switching with precisely configured laser-ablated abutment and implant microgrooves to maintain interimplant crestal bone at interimplant distances of 2 and 4 mm. Results of this initial preclinical study suggest that it is possible through precise implant/abutment design modifications to place adjacent implants at distance of 2 to 4 mm without inducing subpapillary crestal bone loss.

Clinical Investigation of an Immediate Load Protocol Using Axial & Tilted Implants to Treat Patients with Failing Dentition or Complete Edentulism

Clinical Investigation of an Immediate Load Protocol Using Axial & Tilted Implants to Treat Patients with Failing Dentition or Complete Edentulism
The clinical investigation evaluated a specific surgical/prosthetic protocol for full-arch fixed dental restorations supported by immediate loaded axial & axial tilted implants, as well as the verall prosthetic survival rate. Mid-study results confirmed that immediate loading of axial & tilted implants following the studied protocol provides a viable treatment modality for the rehabilitation of edentulous arches & terminal dentition.

A New & Improved Approach to Zygomatic Implants Premium Member Content

A New & Improved Approach to Zygomatic Implants
Over the past decade numerous approaches to the rehabilitation of severe maxillary atrophy have been suggested. Most approaches involve the utilization of the Zygoma for anchorage of specially developed extra long Implants. These implants often must either enter through the sinus or pass along the outside of the sinus wall depending upon the transverse discrepancies and horizontal ridge resorption issues as well as future occlusal scheme with the mandibular arch. This new approach described in this presentation addresses this potential compromise through extra-maxillary bone grafting performed at the time of Zygoma placement utilizing fresh frozen iliac bone and bone marrow aspirate. Multiple cases will be highlighted and short term follow up described.

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.

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge Premium Member Content

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge
After tooth extraction, bone resorption of varying amounts always occurs as the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes both qualitative and quantitative changes. Different techniques have been presented in literature in order to preserve the post-extraction site, including the use of barrier membranes, tri-dimensional matrix and bone fillers. An “open-healing” approach is nowadays commonly used, combining a proper management of soft tissues with biological integration of biomaterials. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. An innovative volume-stable collagen matrix provides the opportunity to treat soft tissue defects around implants as an alternative to connective tissue graft.
