Microgeometry of Implant Surfaces - Part 1

Description:
Dr. Jack Ricci, Associate Professor and Masters Program Director of Biomaterials Science at New York University, discusses the science behind the Laser-Lok microchannels surface in implant design. This presentation is critical to understand the biology that is behind the soft tissue-implant relationship in the critical zone of the subgingival dentistry. Implications to tissue health, integrity and stability are detailed especially as they impact the clinician.

Andres; Interestingly, that idea is already being done by Biohorizons offering the laserlok technology on their abutments.
good ideas.
regards
Dr. Salama

why no combine all three advantage in one implant system? an implant with morse cone conection like ankylos, and the neck of the abutment with microchannels for soft tissue suport? why not use the microgrooves technology in the first parts of the abutments?

Maurice Salama - (1/2/2009 6:40 AM)

Implant Microgeometry, Microgrooves offer mechanical loading effeciencies , laser microchannels offer biological affinity for certain types of cells, platform switching offers reduced artificial materials in the subgingival arena and possible alteration of the biological remodelling that occurs at the prosthetic connection, one piece unibody implants offer the advantage of no microgap.
What do the members of XP think is most important?

Implants, Overdentures, Hybrids? What’s Up With That?
It’s no secret that patients who have to wear dentures often have challenges. While it would be great to just put in 8 implants and four bridges in those toothless arches the financial realities of that extensive treatment prevail.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequential lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Immediate Occlusal Loading the Same Day or Day After Implant Placement
Immediate loading of endosseous implants is becoming a widespread therapeutic procedure for the rehabilitation of patients with edentulous jaws. The purpose of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the long-term success rate of endosseous implants placed in the edentulous lower jaw and loaded on either the same day of surgery or the next day. Nineteen patients were enrolled in the study. Eleven patients, accounting for 64 implants, received their provisional prosthesis the same day of…
