Procedural Anatomy for the Implant Surgeon; The Maxilla Premium Member Content

Procedural Anatomy for the Implant Surgeon; The Maxilla
Every single implant surgeon requires the knowledge of the oral environment they are working within. This multimedia presentation will focus upon procedural anatomy of the maxilla. Critical anatomical landmarks will be highlighted. Blood vessels, nerves, glands and bone aspects of maxillary surgery will be discussed. Special attention will be focused on risk avoidance and complication-emergency management. Premaxilla, posterior maxilla, palate, nasal floor, sinus, zygomatic and pterygoid anatomy will be incorporated.

Autogenous Harvest Sites for Implant Grafting Premium Member Content

Autogenous Harvest Sites for Implant Grafting
The utilization of autologous bone remains the Gold standard in regeneration. The ability to harvest bone safely and in adequate quantities for alveolar bone regeneration is often a limitation in private practice. This multimedia presentation will focus on several potential intra-oral harvest sites and the manner in which they can effectively be utilized in a modern implant practice. Incision designs, harvest tools, local anatomy and potential risks will be highlighted.

Subperiosteal Implants - The New Approach for the Extreme Atrophic Jaws

Subperiosteal Implants - The New Approach for the Extreme Atrophic Jaws
Subperiosteal implants started in the 40’s but were discontinued due to the poor success rates in the long term. Today, 80 years later, a completely different technology has emerged, bringing Subperiosteal implants to the next level.

Introduction to Osseointegration and Modern Implant Dentistry: Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Introduction to Osseointegration and Modern Implant Dentistry: Part 2 of 2
This introduction gives a brief history of implant dentistry and the foundation of the modern era based on osseointegration. The principles of osseointegration will be outlined along with a detailed review of the healing sequence associated with it and how that directly influences clinical decisions. In addition, a review is presented of implant biomaterials and surfaces and how they influence the process of osseointegration.

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Ten years have passed since Hürzeler and coworkers first introduced the socket-shield technique. Much has developed and evolved with regard to partial extraction therapy, a collective concept of utilizing the patient’s own tooth root to preserve the periodontium and peri-implant tissue. The specifications, steps, instrumentation, and procedures discussed in this article are the result of extensive experience in refining the socket-shield technique as we know it today. A repeatable, predictable protocol is requisite to providing tooth replacement in esthetic dentistry. Moreover, a standardized protocol provides a better framework for clinicians to report data relating to the technique with procedural consistency. This article aims to illustrate a reproducible, step-by-step protocol for the socket- shield technique at immediate implant placement and provisionalization for single-rooted teeth.

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.

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.

4 Steps to a Predictable Full Arch Rehabilitation Premium Member Content

4 Steps to a Predictable Full Arch Rehabilitation
We live in an era where technology surround us. In Dentistry, there has been a progressive development in digital technology and workflows. In this lecture, we will discuss the data acquisition, diagnosis and treatment plan for a full arch rehabilitation. Which obstacles may we find and how to overcome them? Also, in this clinical case presented, we will highlight the potential of Digital Smile Design & virtual implant planning and their critical role to achieve a predictable outcome Implementing new workflows on a daily practice requires a well organized step-by-step process, and our goal is to show you our 4 step digital protocol to achieve the same results we planned.
