Summary:

Calcium channel-blocking agents are used extensively for the management of cardiovascular conditions, including angina pectoris, coronary artery spasm, cardiac arrhythmias, and hypertension. Gingival overgrowth around natural teeth has been previously reported in the literature with patients taking calcium channel-blocking agents. This clinical report describes hyperplasia of tissues around titanium dental implants in a patient taking Nifedipine along with the multiphasic approach to treating this medication-induced hyperplasia of the peri-implant tissues.

Survival of Implants after Indirect Maxillary Sinus Elevation Procedure: A Two Years Longitudinal Study
The aim of the study was to evaluate the survival rate of two diverse implant systems with different implant surfaces with the same geometrical design. In the present study, we achieved clinical success with both kinds of implant surfaces however Bioetched implant surface showed promising results comparable to Tiunite surface of Nobel BioCare Implants. In the future, more case-controlled studies with longer follow-up are needed to validate the results of the present findings.

Transitional Custom Abutments: Optimizing Esthetics in Implant Supported Restorations

Transitional Custom Abutments: Optimizing Esthetics in Implant Supported Restorations
As the discipline of implant prosthodontics continues to evolve, additional emphasis has been focused on the role of adequate emergence profiles and peri-implant soft tissue contours. Despite the development of anatomically shaped healing abutments, currently advocated techniques exhibit clinical limitations. This article introduces the transitional custom abutment technique as a method of manipulating the supraimplant soft tissue contours so that optimal emergence profiles and increased restorative flexibility…

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants
When treatment with dental implants is indicated, an accurate diagnosis must be made to evaluate the clinical parameters and determine the optimal time for immediate or delayed (ie, early or late) implant placement and loading following tooth extraction. It is also important to identify complications and their implications on the aesthetic outcome.1 This article explains behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant, evaluates the timing of implant placement after extraction, and reviews various parameters that influence tissue marginal remodeling.

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome.

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.

The Implant Supra-Crestal Complex: Building the Foundation for Long-Term Stable Results in Implant Therapy - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

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.
