Digital Workflow for Fully Guided Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction - Part 2 Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Fully Guided Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction - Part 2
A large portion of the US population today is edentulous. It is estimated that over 23 million individuals are completely edentulous and 12 million are edentulous in one arch. In addition to that, we have a growing population with terminal dentition conditions. Traditionally, these patients were treated with staged implant placement and delayed loading. Such traditional approach requires multiple surgeries and longer treatment time. Consequently, the traditional treatment approach is associated with increased morbidity and longer healing periods. Utilizing this Digital workflow for implant reconstruction to treat patients with terminal dentition and those who are fully edentulous will significantly increase predictability, precision, and reduce treatment chair side time which overall increases patient satisfaction.

Health &amp; Emotion: A biological treatment concept with ceramic implants Premium Member Content

Health & Emotion: A biological treatment concept with ceramic implants
Ceramic implants are different, as is the concept. Health and above all sustainable health is a megatrend of our time. Ceramic implants are the stepping stone or missing link to biological dentistry, which aims not only at preserving teeth, but at preserving people's health. In addition to inadequate nutrition, stress and environmental conditions, the teeth are a frequent cause of chronic inflammation and ultimately a chronic disease. By improving the general conditions (nutrition and nutritional supplements, stress, environment) and consistent metal-free dentistry, dentists can have a very positive influence on the health of their patients.

The Socket Shield Technique with Promixal Extensions for Single-Rooted Teeth

The Socket Shield Technique with Promixal Extensions for Single-Rooted Teeth
The conventional socket shield (SS) design extends from the mesiolabial to the distolabial line angle. C-shaped SS, L-shaped SS, and proximal SS designs have proximal extensions that help to maintain the hard and soft tissue in the interproximal areas. This is beneficial for implant sites adjacent to an existing implant or an edentulous space. The most common complication of the socket sheild technique (SST) is internal shield exposure. Due to anatomical features such as a scalloped ridge shape and an oval socket shape of some teeth, the risk of complications such as internal shield exposure, inadvertent SS displacement, and fracture of the SS during implant insertion is greater in proximal shield areas. The present article describes guidelines for case selection for proximal shield extensions, along with SS preparation and the selection of implant and prosthetic components.

Root Submergence Technique, A Case Series with Follow-Up up to Seven Years

Root Submergence Technique, A Case Series with Follow-Up up to Seven Years
In the era of aesthetic dentistry, the goal is not only to provide a function to our patients but also to preserve the hard and soft tissue anatomy, to have a pleasing prosthesis. Obtaining natural aesthetics is simpler in single implant cases, however, in multiple implant prosthesis achieving natural dentition becomes a challenge. The root submergence technique (RST) is one such procedure that provides maximum preservation of the surrounding alveolar bone and soft tissue. This case series discusses the effect of a root submergence technique on preserving the periodontal tissue at the pontic site of fixed dental prostheses in the maxillary arch. The results of this clinical case series indicate that a root submergence technique can be successfully applied in the pontic site development with fixed dental prostheses, especially in the maxillary anterior aesthetic zone.

Teeth First: A novel surgical treatment concept for the edentulous, acquired Class III, severely atrophied maxilla

Teeth First: A novel surgical treatment concept for the edentulous, acquired Class III, severely atrophied maxilla
Extreme atrophy of the edentulous maxilla still represents a challenge as far as prosthetic rehabilitation with implant-supported fixed (screw-type) prostheses is concerned. This is due not only to insufficient bone volume for implant placement but also to unfavorable three-dimensional inter-maxillary relationships that is caused by the pattern of bone resorption in the maxilla. In the scientific literature, there are few clinical studies describing the use of the Le Fort I osteotomy, as a 1 or 2 stage procedure, for the reconstruction of a three dimensionally severely atrophied maxilla, prior to implant placement.

Guided Bone Regeneration of a Seibert Class III Bone Defect With Bioactive Calcium Phosphosilicate Bone Graft: Human Histology and Clinical Report Premium Member Content

Guided Bone Regeneration of a Seibert Class III Bone Defect With Bioactive Calcium Phosphosilicate Bone Graft: Human Histology and Clinical Report
This clinical case aimed to achieve two main objectives. The first was to determine if the use of only calcium phosphosilicate bone graft as a regeneration material (with no autologous bone added) on a severe vertical and horizontal mandibular defect would allow enough bone to be obtained to enable the placement of dental implants. The second objective was to determine histologic characteristics of the regenerated site after a healing period of 10 months.
