Summary:

In this prospective randomized controlled clinical study, small titanium implants were placed in posterior maxillae for the purpose of assessing the rate and extent of new bone development. Nine pairs of site evaluation implants were placed in posterior areas of maxillae and retrieved with trephine drills after 4 or 8 weeks of unloaded healing. The amount of bone in linear contact (%) with the implant surface was used to determine the osteoconductive potential of the implant surface. Implant surfaces were dual acid etched (n=9) (controls) or dual acid etched and (test implants), and the surfaces were compared. The implants and surrounding tissues were processed for histologic analysis. The mean bone-to-implant contact value for the test surface was signifivantly increased over that of the control implants at both time intervals (<.01). FOr the implants/patients included in this study, the addition of a nanometer-scale calcium phosphate treatment to a dual acid-etched implant surface appeared to increase the extent of bone development after 4 & 8 weeks of healing.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation platelet concentrate widely used to accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages over the better known platelet-rich plasma (PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal expense, and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines. This article serves as an introduction to the PRF “concept” and its potential clinical applications.

Immediate Fixed Rehabilitations with the use of Axial and Tilted Implants
During the last decades, materials and techniques have improved continuously and immediate loading has been revealed a predictable and reliable procedure, especially for full-arch rehabilitations. The aim of this webinar is to feature surgical of prosthetic aspect of immediate loading rehabilitations like All-on-4, V-II-V, Trans-sinus Tilted Implants and Zygoma Implants, thanks the resolutions of clinical cases. Successful long term outcomes could be achieved with a proper learning curve of the all dental team and with the use of high-quality materials.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement Premium Member Content

The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement
During the last 20 years we have experience in Periodontics and Implantology a large amount of research and clinical cases that have aloud us to better understand how the Extraction and Implant Site behave. The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement goes to what we consider the most critical factors that influence our results in todays practice. The presentation goes through the evidence based alternatives and how this have changed with time. We also go through the Socket Shield alternative and present some of what we consider the future on this area will be.
