Soft Tissue Solutions to Bone Deficiencies; Minimally invasive Concepts Part 2 Premium Member Content

Soft Tissue Solutions to Bone Deficiencies; Minimally invasive Concepts Part 2
Soft Tissue minimally invasive procedures can often be utilized to reconstruct large defects in the anterior region rather than rebuild the site with Bone which would entail multiple procedures over several months and increase the morbidity for the patients as well as risk for the clinician. This presentation highlights numerous soft tissue procedures that can augment large deficiencies in the esthetic zone as a preference over bone augmentation. Roll, pedicle grafts, and tuberosity tissues can be predictably utilized to maximize our results and limit time and risk for our patients. Tooth replacement, implant failure restitution and immediate implant placement SVG grafting will be reviewed in detail.

The Digital Impact on Full Arch Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Digital Impact on Full Arch Implant Dentistry
The expanding role of digital information has been critical in the design and establishment of an accurate full arch restoration. Likely more than most situations, digital record taking and the establishment of VDO and vertical space requirements is essential in Full Arch Therapies. This presentation will review current methodology, suggest and explain accuracy issues and tolerances when recording implant positions for the lab phase. The digital divide is becoming smaller each day and allowing unusual predictability in our restorative case flow.

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.

Effects of Osseodensification on Immediate Implant Placement: Retrospective Analysis of 211 Implants Premium Member Content

Effects of Osseodensification on Immediate Implant Placement: Retrospective Analysis of 211 Implants
Osseo densification is a new method of bone instrumentation for dental implant placement that preserves bulk bone and increases primary implant stability, and may accelerate the implant rehabilitation treatment period and provide higher success and survival rates than conventional methods. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate and discuss results obtained on immediate implant placement with immediate and delayed loading protocols under Osseodensification bone instrumentation

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.

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.

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.
