Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration

Author(s):

George Priest, DMD

Date Added:

Summary:

Implant placement immediately after tooth extraction, followed by an immediate provisional restoration of a single dental implant, provides significant benefits compared with traditional delayed protocols. Patients are not burdened with cumbersome removable interim prostheses, osseous anatomy may be preserved, sulcular form is optimized before definitive restoration, soft tissue has matured before implant integration, fewer surgical interventions are required, and treatment time is accelerated. A few authors noted a diminished implant success rate for immediately restored single implants with provisional crowns compared with delayed restoration. However, many researchers reported short-term success rates between 96% and 100%.Factors critical to success of immediate restoration include initial implant stability in good quality bone and patient compliance with instructions to avoid the provisional restoration during mastication.

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies
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

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 3 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.

Digital Dynamic & Static Solutions in Partial Extraction Therapy
Partial Extraction Therapy has changed the methods of implant planning and execution. Preserving both hard and soft tissue has propelled these concepts to innovative. Until recently the use of dynamic and static guidance has been delayed. The objective of this presentation is to understand the need for digital guidance and explores avenues to accomplish a digitally based workflow and execution fr the subsequent procedures.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Ceramic Dental Implants in Everyday Practice Premium Member Content

Ceramic Dental Implants in Everyday Practice
One-piece Zirconia Oxide implants can overcome the problems we associate with two-piece and one-piece titanium root form implants. It will be shown how this treatment option is no longer “experimental” and that the Zirconia Oxide material used in the CeraRoot implants shows excellent ability to osseointegrate, is phenomenally strong, and provides a soft tissue profile and health around the implants that rivals natural teeth. This presentation will make you rethink your titanium armamentarium. You will see a way to provide your patients with an ideal tooth replacement option. An implant that looks like a tooth, restores like a tooth, and has the periodontal health that rivals that of a tooth without the fear of screw loosening, metal showing, and Peri-implantitis caused by subgingival connections.
