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 & 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 Modern Role of Custom-made 3D Individualized Implants Premium Member Content

The Modern Role of Custom-made 3D Individualized Implants
The ability to utilize Digital Dentistry and 3D Printing and Milling to create customized implant solutions for the severe dental cripple is now possible. This presentation will highlight the specific attributes and the requirements for patient management utilizing these customized sub-periosteal implant devices. Why the work and what is the biological and mechanical aspects that make this a viable modern day solution for those patients with minimal bone for standard implant dentistry.

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.

Human Histologic Analysis of Implant Osseointegration in a Healed Site Grafted with Nondemineralized Autologous Tooth-Derived Graft Material

Human Histologic Analysis of Implant Osseointegration in a Healed Site Grafted with Nondemineralized Autologous Tooth-Derived Graft Material
Human autologous tooth-derived grafts (ATDGs) were recently introduced as a source of bone substitute biomaterial. Using dentin autografts in humans was first reported in 2003. In that first report, demineralized dentin matrix granules were used as a bone substitute biomaterial for sinus augmentation. Since then, a variety of TDGs have been introduced clinically, including block or particulate forms of tooth structures with various levels of mineralization, as shown in Fig 1. In the present article, “TDG” is used as an all-encompassing term to better capture the variability of tooth-derived grafts that can contain the total root structure, dentin only, dentin and cementum, or even enamel.

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.

Bone Augmentation in Infected Sites with Bovine-Derived Xenograft Mixed with Platelet-Rich Plasma Covered by Platelet-Poor Plasma

Bone Augmentation in Infected Sites with Bovine-Derived Xenograft Mixed with Platelet-Rich Plasma Covered by Platelet-Poor Plasma
The aim of this study was to assess the success of bone regeneration in infected and non-infected human dental defects, with respect to biological properties of bone remodeling. Histomorphometric analysis of bone biopsies was used to evaluate new bone formation, soft tissue, and residual biomaterial in infected and noninfected sites. In all samples, the biomaterial particles were surrounded by newly generated bone. Among factors that were analyzed, gender, medical state, and smoking had no significant effect on bone regeneration. Variables including tooth location, platelet concentrate, and protective membrane addition were also analyzed for their effects on bone regeneration.

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.
