Summary:

The osseointegrated implant has become a standard treatment with a high degree of predictability for patients missing one or more teeth. It is especially recommended when the patient has a clear medical history and normal bone levels in both width and height in the edentulous areas. In constant search for improvement, clinicians find themselves looking into every element relating to the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth: existing bone structure, surgical technique, implant placement, implant design, abutments, implant-prosthetic connection, prosthetic components, and ceramic/restorative materials. When ultimately used together, these components attempt to mimic nature. A healthy environment promoting long-term stability of the implant-prosthesis is the primary goal and should not be compromised at any point. Clinicians must constantly push the envelope to solve more complex cases and work with knowledgeable patients who have developed higher expectations than ever before.

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…

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.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.

Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws
In this lecture you will learn several alternatives for the full arch rehabilitation of the jaws with different degrees of resorption. Several cases will be presented step-by-step with high-quality pictures for each technique explained. The main goals are to avoid complex regeneration procedures, to avoid zigomatic surgery and to still be able to perform immediate loading in the most compromised scenarios.All on Four technique, palatal approach technique, pterygoid implants and the most recent Subperiosteal Implants are some of the key-concepts presented.
