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

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?

Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal Premium Member Content

Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal
To date, enhancement to implant surface technology has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Trabecular Metal has changed all that. This is because Trabecular Metal allows for true bone 'in-growth' rather than just on-growth. This webinar will highlight, in detail, this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols. In addition, techniques for immediate provisionalization of this implant will also be covered in an accompanying surgical video.

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction
The need for an adequate alveolar ridge width has been a long-standing principle in pre-prosthetic surgery. Since the introduction of root-form endosseous dental implants, the necessity of proper alveolar ridge width has become essential. In this presentation, the author concentrated on the ridge-split procedure (RSP) as a form of a ridge modification (widening or augmentation), the technique that offers many possibilities and has many advantages in oral pre-prosthetic implant reconstruction. There are many modifications of the RSP. This presentation is a description of classical ridge-split procedure in maxilla and mandible that has been successfully employed for many years in author’s surgical practice.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

Effectiveness of a Super-Pulsed CO2 Laser For Removal of Biofilm From Three Different Types of Implant Surfaces: An In Vitro Study

Effectiveness of a Super-Pulsed CO2 Laser For Removal of Biofilm From Three Different Types of Implant Surfaces: An In Vitro Study
As dental implants become a routine part of dental practice, so too will the prevalence of peri-implant diseases. Inherent to the treatment of peri-implant disease is the removal of microbial biofilms from the implant surface. Currently, there is no standardized protocol for application of any treatment modality directed at implant surface decontamination. In this in vitro study, we report on the effectiveness of a super-pulsed CO2 laser, delivering an average fluence of 6.3 to 113 J/cm2, to remove biofilm from three different types of implant surface topographies. Biofilms ranged in thickness from 5 to 15 μm. An average fluence of 19 J/cm2 was sufficient to achieve 100% ablation of the biofilm on hydrophilic sandblasted and acidetched surface specimens (SA). However, to achieve 100% ablation of biofilm on HA and highly crystalline, phosphate enriched titanium oxide (PTO) surfaced implants required an average fluence of 38 J/cm2.
