Immediate Molar Replacement Utilizing Narrow Diameter Implants - Allowing Implant Placement in Almost Any Situation - Part 2 of 2

Description:
Immediate molar placement has been widely reported in the literature with excellent results. All the studies insist that a wide diameter implants are essential as they are the only way to achieve primary stability and are the only implants that can handle the forces that molar regions produce. But there are a number of problems with wide diameter implants. This presentation will dispel all these myths as well as show how narrow diameter implants can not only handle the forces but also make immediate molar placement more predictable and possible in almost all scenarios.

interesting presentation what about the dentium implants they have a similar connection to the ankylos ?thank you

george dirani - (11/17/2013 2:37 PM)

What size anterior sulcus former you find yourself using mostly whether for maxilla or mandible? I know the abutment have to be the same size as the sulcus former. Do you approximate or there is a rule you go by? thank you

Howard Gluckman - (11/8/2013 3:25 PM)

Hi George I need to clarify one thing. the only reason the Ankylos works here is because there is a morse taper connection. You cannot use narrow implants with short cone connections like Strauman or Nobel Biocare implants. It has to be a true morse taper like the ankylos. You also cannot use the internal or external hex Implants as the micro motion will lead to failure of the abutment implant interface. thanks for watching and your comments. keep them coming. regards Howard

Hi Benjamin I am very familiar with the megagen implant system and use them extensively. I have used the EZ plus as well as the rescue which I think is a great implant. I mostly use th Anyridge now. The implant is definitely ideal for this kind of treatment in fact it has one thing better is that it works in conical root as well as in furcations as one can use the wider diameters of the anyridge which does not work well with Ankylos. You can use the 4mm for the immediate implant placement and also works well. The only negative is the drills are more aggressive and as a result you get more chatter and have to remove more bone but it does work well with the 4mm Anyridge and I have used it often. I hope this helps. regards Howard

Great work Dr. Gluckmam. Implant companies say that narrow diameter implants are not recommended for the posterior region and you just proved them wrong. Very interesting.

Benjamin Saidel - (11/4/2013 6:22 PM)

Hi Howard fantastic results ! I also use EZPlus Internal by Megagen as noted by John Sullivant(8/4/2012). The narrowest in this system is a 3.3 mm implant then 4.0, 4.5 and 5 . It has an internal trip connection with platform switching. Do you know this implant system and is it suitable for immediate placement as you have described in your presentation? Are you aware of the rescue or any ridge implant by Megagen ? Benjy ( wits grad)

@Jan-Stefaans Unfortunately you cannot use the bicon implant for this of therapy as you need to have an implant that has a thread not fins. the Bicon has to be tapped into place and one generally needs the threads to allow easy placement of the implant in the furcation bone. One may be able to use it in specific areas especially where you have a thick furcation. But as soon as you try to tap an implant in it will take the path of least resistance

Jan-Stefaans du Plessis - (10/16/2012 6:12 AM)

What about Bicon implants, would you use the as well in this cases?

Immediate and Early Loading Protocols in the Partially Edentulous Patient Premium Member Content

Immediate and Early Loading Protocols in the Partially Edentulous Patient
The ultimate goal of an immediate loading protocol is to reduce the number of surgical interventions and shorten the time frame between surgery and prosthetic delivery, all without sacrificing implant success rates. These new protocols will ultimately lessen patient’s reservations and result in increased acceptance of implant therapy.

Digital Dynamic & Static Solutions
Partial Extraction Therapy and crestal sinus augmentation have changed the methods of implant planning and execution. Preserving both hard and soft tissue has propelled these concepts to innovative. Until recently the use of dynamic and static guidance has been delayed. The objective of this presentation is to understand the need for digital guidance and explores avenues to accomplish a digitally based workflow and execution fr the subsequent procedures.

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study
This study utilized radiographic comparative analysis in order to evaluate dimensional ridge changes four months after tooth extraction and immediate grafting with mineralized dentin particulate autograft and chopped platelet-rich fibrin. Fifty-eight extraction sockets with up to 2mm of missing buccal bone in the coronal aspect compared to the lingual bone were included. Graft material was covered with either a platelet-rich fibrin membrane or collagen sponge with no effort to achieve primary closure.
