Summary:

Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective- bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable treatment alternative. These procedures led to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures in a single surgical stage and to maintenance of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24 months afterwards.

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study
This study utilized radiographic comparative analysis in order to evaluate dimensional ridge changes four months after tooth extraction and immediate grafting with mineralized dentin particulate autograft and chopped platelet-rich fibrin. Fifty-eight extraction sockets with up to 2mm of missing buccal bone in the coronal aspect compared to the lingual bone were included. Graft material was covered with either a platelet-rich fibrin membrane or collagen sponge with no effort to achieve primary closure.

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts
Autogenous bone grafts have been used for many years for alveolar ridge augmentation and are still considered to be the gold standard for jaw reconstruction. The use of these grafts with osseointegrated implants was originally discussed by Brånemark et al., who used the iliac crest as the donor site. For repair of most localized alveolar defects, however, bone grafts from the mandible offer advantages over iliac crest grafts. These include the proximity of donor and recipient sites, convenient surgical access, decreased donor site morbidity and decreased cost. This article focuses on posterior maxillary and mandibular osseous augmentation in a staged approach for implant placement. Both horizontal and vertical deficiencies are addressed with the use of symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor block bone via case presentations.

GBR with Individualized Titanium Meshes
According to several authors, Guided bone regeneration is a procedure needed in half of the dental rehabilitations with dental implants. Due to this reality, digital dentistry become an important tool allowing us to be more precise and less invasive. By printing customized titanium meshes based on the patients bone defects, we can now predict the exact volume needed to be regenerate and create a specific device that will help to maintain the space. This takes CAD CAM dentistry to the next level, allowing more predictability in every step of the way, from bone regeneration till prosthetic rehabilitation. techniques more predictable. The authors describe a new guided bone regeneration protocol based on the use of digital planning and fabrication of printed 3D titanium meshes, rigid devices that protect mechanically the scaffold, design over the patient CT scan.

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth Premium Member Content

Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth
In the latest years, Oral surgery has strongly suffered of the technological innovations introduced in this field. In particular, the use of ultrasound applied to surgery has changed some of the most frequent clinical procedures, such as the extraction of third parties molars included, thus spreading an innovative concept in all dentistry: piezoelectric surgery or piezosurgery. So taking care of about 10 years of simple and complex extractive surgery I had the need to elaborate a lecture in which they are described in a simple and linear way the surgical techniques for the avulsion of the dental elements included, to provide a repeatable and predictable approach and method in order to reduce their invasiveness and traumaticity procedures
