Modern Day Esthetic Challenges with Implants in the Esthetic Zone

Description:
Current trends in implant therapy advocate clinical techniques thereby allowing treatment efficiency consisting of condensed clinical procedures, fewer patient appointments, and shortened overall treatment time. Even though there is overwhelming literature to support positive outcomes in regards to implant survival through immediate implant therapy and tooth replacement strategies, esthetics questions still loom, specifically how to handle multiple tooth sites in the esthetic zone. This presentation will address treatment planning strategies with multiple tooth sites incorporating teeth, immediate implants with tooth replacement, and pontics in the esthetic zone. Innovations in implant macro design, to achieve more consistent screw-retained definitive restorations, and devices / strategies in provisional restoration fabrication to save time will be presented.

Dr Chu: what you think about the form of the pontic square? it means 90o than you very much for your presentation

Alberto Miselli - (5/23/2018 10:59 AM)

Dear Stephen Chu: How I enjoyed your lecture, as always with very clear ideas, about the nourishment of perimplant tissues. According to the Borg Group article, they talked of create more space in the area closest to the implant platform. Now, in the article by Pablo Galindo and Alberto Monje, where they said that the distance between the edge of the crown and the implant platform should be at least two millimeters. On the other hand, Tomas Linkevicius and his article on mucosa thickness l, greater than 3 mm to preserve or crest. Well, in my humble opinion and clinical experience, in edentulous areas, where the biological space, the gingiva contour and the papillae have been lost, everything depends on the prosthetic design, the wax up will indicate the zenith and to what depth we will insert the implant, the vertical mucosal tissue and the phenotype. I want to say that it is a three-dimensional, biological and mechanical approach so that all the precepts are fulfilled, that you, in a very didactic way, exposed in your webinar and all the articles that you have made reference. I lacked to say about subcritical design, very well explained by Alberto Monje et al and Ernesto Lee et al. where the convexity or concavity depends on the buccal - palatal position of the implant and the volume of the oral mucosal roof. In conclusion, many concepts that we must take into consideration. Thank you for everything you've done to make us better implantologists. Best regards Alberto Miselli

The Lingually Positioned Flap For Full Arch Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

The Lingually Positioned Flap For Full Arch Soft Tissue Management
One of the least understood and poorly managed aspects of soft tissue management of the implant patient is the lack of keratinized tissues on the lingual aspect of the ridge. This presentation specifically addresses this issue and describes a very useful and predictable flap and grafting approach to address this common shortcoming of treatment. The Lingually Positioned Flap in combination with vestibuloplasty and free gingival grafting will be highlighted and described.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 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 sequencial 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.

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.

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota
Amoxicillin is commonly used in oral surgery for antimicrobial prophylaxis against surgical-site infection and bacteremia because of its effect on oral streptococci. The aim of this study was to determine whether amoxicillin reaches the break-point concentrations in saliva and has any effect on the salivary microbiota, colonizing bacteria on mucosal membranes and on the gingival crevice after a single dose of amoxicillin. A single dose given as prophylaxis to prevent a surgical-site infection results in a significant reducing effect on the oral streptococcal microflora in the gingival crevice and may have an impact on bacteria spreading into tissues and the bacteria of streptococci.

Soft Tissue Procedures Related to Dental Implant Surgery

Soft Tissue Procedures Related to Dental Implant Surgery
Clinicians often encounter an insufficient amount of keratinized soft tissue in the proposed implant site. When this occurs, the question arises: Should the necessary softtissue manipulation be performed before, during, or after placement of the implant? There are three answers or scenarios for this question, according to Lee Silverstein, DDS, associate professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.
