Zygomatic Implants: 20 Years of Evolution Premium Member Content

Zygomatic Implants: 20 Years of Evolution
This presentation will review 20 years of non-alveolar based implant dentistry specific to the resorbed maxilla. The role of the Zygoma and Pterygoid plates to anchor specialized implants to secure a prosthesis will be reviewed. Patient selection, anatomy, surgical aspects and prosthetics will be reviewed.

Graft Less Vertical Bone Augmentation Solutions Premium Member Content

Graft Less Vertical Bone Augmentation Solutions
A graftless approach to reconstruct a significant vertical defect is always challenging. This presentation discusses various approaches that can "minimize' the surgical morbidity and allow the surgeon to provide a less invasive option.

The Lingually Positioned Flap For Full Arch Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

The Lingually Positioned Flap For Full Arch Soft Tissue Management
One of the least understood and poorly managed aspects of soft tissue management of the implant patient is the lack of keratinized tissues on the lingual aspect of the ridge. This presentation specifically addresses this issue and describes a very useful and predictable flap and grafting approach to address this common shortcoming of treatment. The Lingually Positioned Flap in combination with vestibuloplasty and free gingival grafting will be highlighted and described.

Preventative Maintenance For the Full Arch Patient Premium Member Content

Preventative Maintenance For the Full Arch Patient
The management of the full arch implant patient must include a specific hygiene and maintenance protocol to be successful. This presentation reviews several different approaches available and specific protocols for the implant team to incorporate to manage these patients.

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

Three-Dimensional (3D) Facially Driven Workflow for Anterior Ridge Defect Evaluation: A Treatment Concept Premium Member Content

Three-Dimensional (3D) Facially Driven Workflow for Anterior Ridge Defect Evaluation: A Treatment Concept
The esthetic rehabilitation of anterior ridge defects and achieving patient satisfaction have become major clinical challenges for dentists and technicians. Poor diagnosis and treatment planning are frequently associated with multiple surgical procedures that fail to meet patient expectations.

Root submergence technique as a partial extraction therapy to preserve the alveolar ridge tissues: A systematic review and appraisal of the literature

Root submergence technique as a partial extraction therapy to preserve the alveolar ridge tissues: A systematic review and appraisal of the literature
The loss of alveolar ridge volume as a result of tooth extraction has been noted in the literature since the 1960s.1-3 The full extent of why this happens is still not entirely understood,4 with a widely accepted explanation for the loss relating to factors that include trauma the extraction socket as a wound sees upregulation of inflammatory processes, resultant activation of osteoclastic activity, resorption of the extraction socket, and an eventual healing that typically results in loss of tissue volume and architecture.5 Second, bundle boned removal of the tooth results in periodontal ligament (PDL) fibers being severed, loss of Sharpey fibers that insert into bundle bone, and a subsequent loss of the mineralized bone layer that lines the alveolus.4-6 At the buccal or facial aspect, the bone plate may consist entirely of bundle bone.

Molar Septum Expansion with Osseodensification for Immediate Implant Placement, Retrospective Multicenter Study with Up-to-5-Year Follow-Up, Introducing a New Molar Socket Classification Premium Member Content

Molar Septum Expansion with Osseodensification for Immediate Implant Placement, Retrospective Multicenter Study with Up-to-5-Year Follow-Up, Introducing a New Molar Socket Classification
The ideal positioning of immediate implants in molar extraction sockets often requires the osteotomy to be in the interradicular septum, which can be challenging in some cases, with traditional site preparation techniques. Patients who had undergone molar tooth extraction and immediate implant placement at five different centers, and followed up between August 2015 and September 2020, were evaluated. Inclusion criteria were use of the osseodensification technique for implant site preparation. The primary outcome was septum width measurement pre-instrumentation and osteotomy diameter post expansion. Clinical outcomes, such as implant insertion torque (ISQ) and implant survival rate, were also collected. A total of 131 patients, who received 145 immediate implants, were included. T

Surgical Management of Third Molars

Surgical Management of Third Molars
Removal of third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, continue to be prevalent in our society. Indications for removal vary from pericoronal infections to orthodontic treatment. Several factors such as age, position of the tooth and affected jaw can dictate the surgical technique. Proper diagnosis and management will be covered at length as well as impaction classification systems, value of imaging, instrumentation and surgical approaches. Post operative management and methods to recognize, avoid and treat potential complications will also be discussed.

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.
