Full Arch Immediate Loading Using Pterygoid Implants - Part 1 of 2

Description:
Non-grafting alternatives for the rehabilitation of the Atrophic Maxilla is a growing arena in our implant patient population. The Intermaxillary Surgical Protocol for Zygomatic Implants and its modification to Extramaxillary techniques has been a huge advantage in the treatment of these advanced maxillary atrophy patient cases. Anatomical and X-Ray interpretation connected with the placement of Zygomatic Implants will be reviewed in great detail. Patient selection and Treatment Planning as well as Pre-Operation Patient’s Medical Condition Assessment etc. is the foundational knowledge required for treatment of these individuals. The surgical procedure and prosthetic rehabilitation aspects as well as impressions and the laboratory work will also be further highlighted.

Absolutely great information. So concise and full of pearls. Thanks

Rod VanSurksum - (3/31/2022 8:50 AM)

Some follow on information on the patient with the touching implants, subsequent facial fistula, and repair with fracture plates... which did not solve the patient's underlying problem which was an infection. The patient was referred to my office for treatment. We took the patient to the OR where we achieved excellent exposure of the implants, and I was able to remove the superior 1/3 of each implant. I sectioned the implants with a diamond wheel, then left the remaining coronal 2/3 attached to her prosthesis. Only the upper 1/3 of the implants were infected, and the lower 2/3 were healthy and integrated in bone. Needless to say, the patient was very happy she didn't loose her prosthesis!

Piezosurgery on Impacted Teeth
In the latest years, Oral surgery has strongly suffered of the technological innovations introduced in this field. In particular, the use of ultrasound applied to surgery has changed some of the most frequent clinical procedures, such as the extraction of third parties molars included, thus spreading an innovative concept in all dentistry: piezoelectric surgery or piezosurgery. So taking care of about 10 years of simple and complex extractive surgery I had the need to elaborate a lecture in which they are described in a simple and linear way the surgical techniques for the avulsion of the dental elements included, to provide a repeatable and predictable approach and method in order to reduce their invasiveness and traumaticity procedures

Next Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration - Part 1 of 2
New and innovative biomaterials are being discovered or created in laboratories at an unprecedented rate, but many entirely unknown to practicing clinicians. This course addresses this gap in knowledge by summarizing some of the groundbreaking research performed to date on this topic and provides case examples of these biomaterials at work. The course begins with a review of the biologic background and applications of bone grafting materials utilized in dentistry. Thereafter, new and exciting updates on Platelet Rich Fibrin, Emdogain/Osteogain, Tetranite and Vitamin D deficiency are discussed with respect to their ability to promote either bone or periodontal regeneration.

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy Premium Member Content

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome. This presentation will highlight a practice-based model centered on digitally enhanced treatment for efficient and predictable esthetic restorative outcomes.

Surgical and Orthodontic Management of Impacted Maxillary Canines
Although the mechanical management of impacted teeth is a routine task for most orthodontists, certain impactions can be frustrating, and the esthetic outcome can be unpredictable if the surgeon uncovers the impacted tooth improperly. When referring a patient to have an impacted toothuncovered,theorthodontist might assume incorrectly that the surgeon knows which surgical procedure to use. However, if not instructed properly, the surgeon could select an inappropriate technique, leaving the orthodontist with…

Preserving Needle Edges During Dental Suturing
The evolution of suture materials has presented today's clinician with numerous alternatives when performing dental suturing. Contemporary sutures not only eliminate some of the difficulties that the surgeon may have encountered previously during closure, but also decrease the potential of postoperative infection and help provide optimal healing. Despite the sophistication of the suture materials (ie, Perma Sharp, Hu-Friedy, Chicago, IL) and surgical techniques now available, closing a wound still involves…

Surgical suture positioning is crucial to ensure adequate healing and can be accomplished using a variety of suturing methods. Sutures should generally be placed distal to the last tooth and within each interproximal space and should always be inserted through the more mobile flap first The flaps should not be blanched during the tying procedure, and closure should not be positioned closer than 2 mm to 3 mm from the edge of the flap, in order to prevent tearing during the inevitable swelling that…
