Surgical Management of the Full Arch Patient; Do's & Don'ts

Surgical Management of the Full Arch Patient; Do's & Don'ts
The responsibility of the surgeon is even more critical when performing a Full Arch Implant treatment. A thorough review of the anatomy is critical prior to the day of surgery to precisely assess the quality and quantity of bone/soft tissues as well as the location of critical anatomical landmarks such as the mandibular nerve, mental nerve, mylohyoid concavity, genial tubercles, floor of the nose, sinus floor, nasopalatine canal, greater palantine canal and pterygoid, zygomatic buttress. A thorough medical review is also a key element to avoid bleeding issues and a poor healing outcome.

The Utilization of Advanced Flap Management & GBR to Large Alveolar Ridge Defects Premium Member Content

The Utilization of Advanced Flap Management & GBR to Large Alveolar Ridge Defects
Proper flap management is critical and key to obtain tension-free flap closure at large 3D ridge augmentation sites. The objective of this presentation is to highlight the most relevant clinical aspects to reduce tension during wound closure, therefore reducing associated complications, namely flap dehiscences that predispose our patients to post operative infection and reduced bone formation. Several clinical tips will be highlighted via multimedia and video to help the clinician increase their own predictability with these kind of procedures. Clinical cases will be presented to demonstrate the steps discussed in detail.

Contemporary Third Molar Surgery - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Contemporary Third Molar Surgery - Part 2 of 2
In this 2-part video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi describes the contemporary principles in third molar surgery. He presents the rational for third molar removal and discusses the surgical anatomy relevant to this common procedure. He also discusses the necessary diagnostic imaging, surgical techniques, indications for bone grafting, and management of common complications.

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases
Guided bone regeneration is a technique widely known, clinicians know very well indications and limitations of this technique. One of the principles to achieve bone augmentation and formation resides in the stability of the blood clot forming under a barrier membrane. The technique proposed in this article has the goal of providing stabilization to the bone graft by adding fibrin sealant (FS) to the bone graft and also using the fibrin sealant to attach a bone membrane (cortical lamina) to the recipient site. This simple modification of the technique of guided bone regeneration is presented in two successful cases.

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures
The use of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor–BB (rhPDGF) has received Food and Drug Administration approval for the treatment of periodontal and orthopedic bone defects and dermal wound healing. Many studies have investigated its regenerative potential in a variety of other oral clinical indications. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the efficacy, safety, and clinical benefit of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor (rhPDGF) use for alveolar bone and/or soft tissue regeneration. Based on the clinical evidence, rhPDGF is safe and provides clinical benefits when used in combination with bone allografts, xenograft, or β-TCP for the treatment of intrabony and furcation periodontal defects and gingival recession or when used with allografts or xenograft for GBR and ARP.

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years
When natural teeth fail, frequently there is a loss of hard and soft tissue. This may complicate subsequent dental implant placement by creating insufficient bone to house the implant. This also occurs when the tooth has been missing for an extended period, especially in the premaxilla, where the bone is less dense and often lacks sufficient volume of facial bone. Site reconstruction to accommodate implant placement often requires both hard and soft tissue augmentation. The modified interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (mIVAN) technique achieves the desired treatment goals in both delayed and immediate placement scenarios. The technique will be discussed as well as the long-term follow-up on 20 cases.

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement
Failure of a natural tooth may not permit placement of an implant at the time of extraction due to insufficiency in available bone to house the implant. Reconstruction of the extraction socket frequently involves both hard and soft tissue augmentation to provide a site that can house the implant and ridge contours that mimic the adjacent natural anatomy. This situation becomes more problematic in the maxillary anterior due to the anatomy and the lower density of the bone of the premaxilla. The solution is the interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (IVAN), which consists of hard tissue grafts, various barrier membranes, and closure with the pediculated connective tissue graft (PCTG). The modified IVAN (mIVAN) technique achieves the necessary goals and may be used in both delayed and immediate placement situations.

Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws Premium Member Content

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.

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 1 of 3 Premium Member Content

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 1 of 3
Once a tooth is extracted, the natural wound-healing cascade paired with irreversible alteration occurs. Hard tissue grafting techniques combined with the sound understanding of the surgical site theater will help the practitioner to make the proper decision in order to successfully treat their patient. The usage of biological modifiers and surgical barriers are proposed to assist in improving the predictability of the advance surgical care.
