Suture Selection for Optimal Flap Closure and Tissue Healing

Suture Selection for Optimal Flap Closure and Tissue Healing
Suture selection is based on a knowledge of the physi cal and biologic characteristics of the suture thread in relationship to the healing process. In addition, accurate apposition of the flap is significant to patient comfort, hemostasis, reduction of the wound to be repaired, and prevention of unnecessary bone destruction. If flaps are not approximated and inadequate hemostasis is present, blood and serum may accumulate under the flap, delaying the healing process by separating the flap from the…

Immediate Molar Replacement Utilizing Narrow Diameter Implants - Allowing Implant Placement in Almost Any Situation - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Immediate Molar Replacement Utilizing Narrow Diameter Implants - Allowing Implant Placement in Almost Any Situation - Part 1 of 2
Immediate molar placement has been widely reported in the literature with excellent results. All the studies insist that a wide diameter implants are essential as they are the only way to achieve primary stability and are the only implants that can handle the forces that molar regions produce. But there are a number of problems with wide diameter implants. This presentation will dispel all these myths as well as show how narrow diameter implants can not only handle the forces but also make immediate molar placement more predictable and possible in almost all scenarios.

CadCam Customized 3D-Printed Subperiosteal Implant Premium Member Content

CadCam Customized 3D-Printed Subperiosteal Implant
When considering the future of implants, it appears justified to reconsider the old concepts in light of the availability of contemporary technologies, such as computer-aided design, softwares and programs design, virtual stress– strain testing, and 3D printing of titanium alloy. With the employment of these modern technologies, the concept of a “high-tech” subperiosteal implant has gradually emerged. Biological design of subperiosteal implant is mandatory for the success of the treatment, guidelines on architectural changes, topological optimization, and biofunctionalization will be explained. This new era of a “high-tech” customized 3D printed subperiosteal implant leads us to consider this technique s a valuable treatment option for atrophic jaws, avoiding more invasive procedures and giving the possibility of immediate loading, improving the patient’s quality of life.
