Summary:

Patients with an edentulous posterior maxillary segment frequently lack adequate bone mass to support dental implants. The challenge of bone augmentation of this segment has been traditionally addressed by two approaches: (1) lateral maxillary window (“hinge osteotomy”) and (2) the “osteotome technique,” also called bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation (BAOSFE).

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement, Part 2. The Effects of Bone Grafting and Provisional Restoration on Peri-implant Soft Tissue Height & Thickness - A Retrospective Study
This article presents the results of evaluating the changes in peri-implant soft tissue dimensions associated with immediate implant placement into anterior post-extraction sockets for four treatment groups: no BGPR(bone graft, no provisional restoration), PR (no bone graft, provisional restoration), BG (bone graft, no provisional restoration), and BGPR (bone graft, provisional restoration). The vertical distance of the peri-implant soft tissue was greater for grafted sites than for non-grafted ones. The facial soft tissue thickness at the gingival third was greater for grafted than for non-grafted sites and for sites with provisional restorations compared to sites without them, respectively. The net gain in soft tissue height and thickness was about 1mm. The increases in vertical and horizontal dimensions for grafted sites were between 0.5 and 1.0mm, as compared to sites with no bone graft and no provisional restoration.

Success Rate, Healing Time, and Implant Stability of Photofunctionalized Dental Implants

Success Rate, Healing Time, and Implant Stability of Photofunctionalized Dental Implants
This is the first study to report the clinical outcomes of photofunctionalized dental implants. This retrospective study analyzed 95 consecutive patients who received 222 untreated implants and 70 patients who received 168 photofunctionalized implants over a follow-up period of 2.5 years. Photofunctionalization was performed by treating implants with UV light for 15 minutes using a photo device immediately before placement. Within the limits of this retrospective study, despite the more frequent use of shorter and smaller-diameter implants, the use of photofunctionalization allowed for a faster loading protocol without compromising the success rate.

RevitaliZe Patient Solutions: preliminary results from a single cohort prospective study using Screw-Vent TSVT implants

RevitaliZe Patient Solutions: preliminary results from a single cohort prospective study using Screw-Vent TSVT implants
The aim of this paper was to report preliminary results from a cohort of subjects treated with the RevitaliZe Patient Solutions approach. Clinical and radiographic results of axial and tilted implants up to fourteen months of loading are presented. Seven patients were followed up for an average of 11,88 months (range 8-16 months). Five subjects received implant treatment in both arches, resulting in 12 restorations. A total of 48 fixtures were placed and no failure was reported during the follow-up period, leading to 100% implant and prosthetic survival rates. Radiographic analysis after 6 months of loading was conducted for all prostheses. No significant difference in marginal bone loss was found between tilted and axial implants in both jaws. The present preliminary data suggests that immediate loading with RevitaliZe Patient Solutions could be considered a predictable and cost- and timeeffective approach for the treatment of total edentulism.

Modern Day Esthetic Challenges with Implants in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Modern Day Esthetic Challenges with Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Current trends in implant therapy advocate clinical techniques thereby allowing treatment efficiency consisting of condensed clinical procedures, fewer patient appointments, and shortened overall treatment time. Even though there is overwhelming literature to support positive outcomes in regards to implant survival through immediate implant therapy and tooth replacement strategies, esthetics questions still loom, specifically how to handle multiple tooth sites in the esthetic zone. This presentation will address treatment planning strategies with multiple tooth sites incorporating teeth, immediate implants with tooth replacement, and pontics in the esthetic zone. Innovations in implant macro design, to achieve more consistent screw-retained definitive restorations, and devices / strategies in provisional restoration fabrication to save time will be presented.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 3 Premium Member Content

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 3
Immediate tooth replacement therapy has become a mainstream treatment modality for single tooth implants in the esthetic zone. The balance between achieving primary stability, implant diameter, and gap distance is a delicate dance yet essential for survival and esthetics. However, esthetic risks and complications exist such as apical socket perforation, loss of labial plate thickness over time, and loss of the interdental papilla due to proximity issues with tooth-to-implant distance following placement. An inverted body-shift implant design concept as solutions to these challenges will be presented and supported by studies that scientifically supports, validates, and reinforces the biologic principles in design that ultimately enhances esthetic outcomes in modern day implantology.
