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.

"All on X" Therapies & The Digital Evolution
Full arch management has its challenges in itself not only from a surgical point of view but also under a prosthetic stand point. Diagnosis and treatment plan properly these cases play a pivotal role for the final successful outcome. In fact, CBCT software analysis together with all the prosthetic evaluation in needed prior to the surgical day will be highlighted, bringing then the focus of the presentation specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures that can improve the predictability of the overall procedure. Which implant geometries are to be used? Which is the rationale behind the choice of placing straight or tilted implants? How many implants are needed and where? Abutment selection? Space requirements? Material selection? Bone quality issues and how to best incorporate new digital software and planning tools.

Ortho/Perio Treatment on Impacted Upper Central Incisors Premium Member Content

Ortho/Perio Treatment on Impacted Upper Central Incisors
Upper central incisor impaction has functional, esthetic and psychologic implications. Causes of the impaction can be divided in obstructive and traumatic. Among the first ones are: supernumerary teeth, odontomas and mesiodens. Among the second group are facial trauma received in the primary or early mixed dentition. In close relation as well with root dilaceration. Other less common reasons for impaction include: crowding, endocrine alterations, bone diseases, genetic conditions, extraction or ankylosis of primary incisors. The impacted upper central incisor can be classified depending on: mesio-distal position, occluso-gingival position, midline angulation, degree of root formation. If early intervention is not enough. There is the need for surgical exposure and orthodontic traction. Among possible treatment complications are: esthetic gingival sequelae, ankylosis and root resorption

Socket Shield Technique - Implantology Today

Socket Shield Technique - Implantology Today
The socket shield procedure is an effective surgical technique for implant supported restorations. It helps in preserving the labial bone and soft tissue architecture around osseointegrated implants. The procedure provides comparable or better outcomes compared to other conventional alternatives at a lower cost.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study
The “socket-shield technique” has shown its potential in preserving buccal tissues. However, front teeth often have to be extracted due to vertical fractures in buccolingual direction. It has not yet been investigated if the socket-shield technique can only be used with intact roots or also works with a modified shield design referring to vertical fracture lines. The aim of this study was to assess histologically, clinically, and volumetrically the effect of separating the remaining buccal root segment in two pieces before immediate implant placement.

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.

Expanding on Transverse Diagnosis and Maxillary Expansion Premium Member Content

Expanding on Transverse Diagnosis and Maxillary Expansion
Transverse dimension diagnosis and treatment is the base for sagital and vertical corrections. Most precise diagnosis on maxillary transverse deficiency is obtained through the CBCT. Miniscrew assisted rapid maxillary expansion (Marpe) or Surgical assisted maxillary expansion are the procedures of choice in skeletal mature patients presenting maxillary transverse deficiencies. Protocols with most common type of expander will be ilustrated through clinical cases. Long term periodontal health and airways are addressed as part of this lecture.
