Interdisciplinary Strategies For The Esthetic Reconstruction of Complex Cases Premium Member Content

Interdisciplinary Strategies For The Esthetic Reconstruction of Complex Cases
Predictable esthetic management of the compromised anterior dentition with dental implants constitutes one of the most difficult challenges in contemporary dentistry, especially in scenarios where soft and hard tissue defects are present. Traditional surgical approaches will often result in peri-implant soft tissue disfigurement. Although the use of pink restorative materials has been proposed to disguise soft tissue deficits, maintenance issues and esthetic limitations remain a concern, particularly as it pertains to high smile cases. This presentation will focus on the predictable esthetic management of high-risk and compromised sites, demonstrating the use of contemporary interdisciplinary strategies for the treatment of peri-implant esthetic dilemmas and complications.

 The Complete Team Approach to planning and delivering the Full Arch Experience

The Complete Team Approach to planning and delivering the Full Arch Experience
An optimal patient experience for the Full Arch Implant patient necessitates a thorough protocol for the entire team. From Initial consultation to final delivery, the entire team requires a game plan. Initial record taking includes photos, CBCT and intra-oral scanning of the mouth. Often a digital mockup is provided for patient review with the team to asses goals. This is then followed by 3D software "game planning" between the surgeon, restorative dentist & Laboratory tech for a Fully Guided Surgery & Prosthetic seating of the case often on the same day. The amount of bone reduction will depend on the space needed for the restoration selected. The number and distribution of implants will be based upon anatomy and bone quality. Transferring of the information following initial healing to the lab provides for a seamless transition to the final 3D milled prosthesis and nightguard fabrication.

Procedural Anatomy for the Implant Surgeon; The Maxilla Premium Member Content

Procedural Anatomy for the Implant Surgeon; The Maxilla
Every single implant surgeon requires the knowledge of the oral environment they are working within. This multimedia presentation will focus upon procedural anatomy of the maxilla. Critical anatomical landmarks will be highlighted. Blood vessels, nerves, glands and bone aspects of maxillary surgery will be discussed. Special attention will be focused on risk avoidance and complication-emergency management. Premaxilla, posterior maxilla, palate, nasal floor, sinus, zygomatic and pterygoid anatomy will be incorporated.

New Classification of Peri-Implantitis & Diagnosis - Part 1 of 2
Peri-implantitis has been receiving attention following recent studies that showed that it is highly prevalent and difficult to manage. This course will provide the latest evidence-based information on peri-implant diseases with emphasis on a team/interdisciplinary approach to treatment. The program will present the updates on the definition and etiology of peri-implantitis from the American Academy of Periodontology’s 2018 consensus meeting. The instructor will present research findings on peri-implant disease diagnosis and management.

Optimizing Tissue Esthetics of Single Tooth Implants Premium Member Content

Optimizing Tissue Esthetics of Single Tooth Implants
With optimized planning, precise placement of the fixture, and the use of laser technology to reduce tissue trauma we can minimize the bone and tissue changes during the surgical phase. During the restorative phase creation of proper tissue contours using the CO2 laser and control of tooth form to position tissue set the stage for obtaining optimal esthetic results.

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 2 of 3 Premium Member Content

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.

Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement Using Choukroun’s Platelet-Rich Fibrin as the Sole Grafting Material: A Radiologic and Histologic Study at 6 Months
Sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement without bone graft material is a hotly debated technique. This technique could be improved and secured by the use of an autologous leukocyte-and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) (Choukroun’s technique) concentrate. The objectives of this study were to assess the relevance of PRF clots and membranes as the sole filling material during a lateral sinus lift with immediate implantation using radiologic and histologic analyses in a case series.

Root Fracture During Insertion of Prefabricated Posts

Root Fracture During Insertion of Prefabricated Posts
The consequence of inappropriate post selection and/ or hasty insertion can result in tooth fracture and/or loss. It has been demonstrated that conical or parallel sided post design has a direct effect on root fracture during post insertion. However, during experimentation it became apparent that root size and its relationship to post size had a direct effect on root fracture. This article correlates root size, post size, and fracture rate during insertion of prefabricated posts.

The Reverse Pathway - Parameters for the Integration of Function and Aesthetics with Implants
Restorative driven implant based decision making by the surgeon will lead to the correct augmentation and implant selection for the specific needs of the patient. This "reverse pathway" approach is the protocol featured in this article to achieve excellent results and avoid complications.
