The Milled PMMA Prototype: The Key, To A Successful Milled Zirconia Implant Bridge

Description:
This presentation will demonstrate design and creation steps leading to a milled PMMA Prototype Bridge which is the key to the success of the final Milled Zirconia Implant Bridge. Full Arch Implant prosthesis vary from bars wrapped in acrylic to milled zirconia. All the types of prosthesis have a unique set of procedures to achieve the end result. With the advent of digital technology, and new high strength materials amazing results can be achieved. New challenges for the Restorative Dentist and Ceramist involve design of the smile, capturing an accurate replica of what is in the mouth, and creating a prosthesis that is functional and aesthetic with a goal to mimic nature in terms of the “Pink and the White”. Facial Aesthetics, Smile Design, Removable ,Fixed and Implant Prosthetics are all disciplines that require their respective skill sets to be merged to reach the final result.

Maurice, Thank You a privilege to share what we have been doing. As far as long term concerns, I would say is to make sure to monitor the times the prosthesis is removed for inspection. I would change to fresh screws, say every 6 cycles. and always check torgue on the screws, Nobel prosthetic screws 15ncm for example. Hygiene still must be maintained by the patient, water pick, brushing the interface ceramic to the gingiva. Case planning very important and surgeon should strive for a nice flat contour so final prosthesis can adapt well to the tissue and food can can flow away easily and not be trapped. Maintenance is greatly simplified with milled monolithic zirconia, to hopefully just screw changes. Hygiene is as stated above. I would also monitor with a pano every 3-5yrs to eval bone around implants.

Digital Dynamic & Static Solutions Premium Member Content

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.

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 2 of 3
Once a tooth is extracted, the natural wound-healing cascade paired with irreversible alteration occurs. Hard tissue grafting techniques combined with the sound understanding of the surgical site theater will help the practitioner to make the proper decision in order to successfully treat their patient. The usage of biological modifiers and surgical barriers are proposed to assist in improving the predictability of the advance surgical care.

Bio-Oss Collagen in the Buccal Gap at Immediate Implants - A 6-Month Study in the Dog
Following tooth extraction and immediate implant installation, the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes substantial bone modeling and the ridge dimensions are reduced. Five beagle dogs about 1 year old were used. The 4th premolar in both quadrants of the mandible were selected and used as experimental sites.The outline of the marginal hard tissue of the control sites was markedly different from that of the grafted sites.

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach
Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: This study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated implants placed in extraction sockets. This protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability of long-term results.

Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants

Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives in all of medical science. Advances in the surgical and prosthetic components, implant designs and surface technologies, and imaging techniques have allowed for significant modifications to occur with respect to one- and two-stage surgical protocols, accelerating treatment times to the benefit of patient and clinician. This article presents a technique to improve surgical and restorative accuracy, allowing for predictable placement and immediate loading of implants through use of CT imaging, stereolithographic models, and CT-derived surgical templates.
