Anterior Prosthetics: Challenges Solutions and Considerations

Description:
Much has been said about the maxillary anterior region and the challenges that exist to restore or improve a patient's smile but few master clinicians actually outline the secrets of a reliable perio-prosthetic design. This presentation will offer it's participants a systematic, logical checklist that will aid them to achieve successful esthetic cases for their satisfied patients.

Thanks a lot, that was a great benefit for me.

Sergio Buda, DDS - (11/22/2012 3:55 PM)

Dr. Saleh, are you familiar with the following article- "Advantages of the root submergence technique for pontic site development in esthetic implant therapy" Salama M, Ishikawa T, Salama H, Funato A, Garber D., Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent. 2007 Dec;27(6):521-7. This article illustrates my point exactly, as well as the famous article by Araujo and Lindhe, "Modeling of the buccal and lingual bone walls of fresh extraction sites following implant installation", Araújo MG, Wennström JL, Lindhe J. Clin Oral Implants Res. 2006 Dec;17(6):606-14. Achieving an excellent esthetic result is not as easy as it seems only with implants.

! i never thought of the situation that way, a bit narrow minded i think. My plan was merely to place implant/s at that site as a transitional step of full arch supported implant prosthesis

Sergio Buda, DDS - (11/21/2012 3:38 PM)

Thank you Dr. Saleh, that is a great question. I did consider placing an implant or implants in the last case but if I did the bundle bone would disappear as well as the support of the supragingival fibers. The area would have to be grafted both with soft tissue and hard tissue in order to acheive the result that I have so far. Also, we have to remember that this is a young patient who will eventually need implants that will have to last many decades (hopefully). The longer we can keep her teeth the better. What is your opinion?

Muhammad Saleh - (11/20/2012 10:49 AM)

Nice presentaton,thanks alot. Dr Buda, why didn't you consider implant placment in the last case after completing the ortho extrusion?
Thanks again.

Sergio Buda, DDS - (11/18/2012 2:00 PM)

Thank you Dr. Lutsky and Dr. Pham for your kind comments. Most of all, thanks to Henry and Maurice Salama for leading the way in dental innovations and for helping us find the enormous potential that is inside all of us when we share knowledge. Last but not least, thanks to my mentor, Dennis Tarnow for helping me think biologically.

Tuyet Khanh Pham - (11/17/2012 3:18 PM)

I am grateful that Dental XP offers the opportunity for experimented dentists as well as beginners to learn from others' posts and to share their knowledge. There are things Dr Alaa might know, but others don't. Dental XP has shown me the possibility to start a case of orthodontic extrusion #9 for a future implant. Dr Buda's video helped me confirm that I am on the right track.

Jay Lutsky - (11/17/2012 11:49 AM)

Dr. Buda, my compliments on a thought provoking presentation. As opposed to Dr. Alaa, I think you presented some challenging anterior cases and suggested some creative and evidence based solutions to overcome the challenges. For me personally, it was a good educational experience. Thank you.

Sergio Buda, DDS - (11/17/2012 4:53 AM)

Haitham Alaa, I am curious to know why you think this presentation was not worth your time. Every case was carefully planned and supported by current literature following a main theme. Perhaps you can share with all of us your specific concerns, it is always a good learning experience.

Immediate Load Despite Extreme Maxillary Bone Loss with Zygoma Implants Premium Member Content

Immediate Load Despite Extreme Maxillary Bone Loss with Zygoma Implants
Zygoma implants are an accepted alternative to bone augmentation in the posterior part of the Maxilla. The challenge of placing a Zygoma implant in a narrow Zygomatic bone, or even 2 implants in the same area, calls for a guided approach. The technique for making and using such a guide is shown in this concise lecture, along with a 4 zygomatic implant assembly operation.

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes & Soft Tissue Manipluation
An adequate bone base is usually a prerequisite for functionally and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft tissue architecture around a dental implant. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone width as a result of tooth loss, a jaw enlargement technique with osteotomes combined with soft tissue manipulation may be utilized to facilitate proper implant placement while concomitantly optimizing the aes thetics of the final implant prosthesis.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.
