PET in Conjuction with Apisectomy Procedure

Description:
A frequently asked question: Is a tooth with a small periapical infection contra-indicated for a PET procedure? This presentation showcases a technique for effectively performing a PET with implant placement and an immediate provisional crown for a central incisor with a small periapical infection.

Well done my friend

Thank you Udatta for this lecture. I agree that huge periapical lesions are a contraindication only if we cannot reach primary stability on the immediate implants as you say in your book eventually, and you can also use PET combined with bone regeneration and insert the implant with delayed approach. About the aesthetic buccal flap design also I have to say that you have a great visibility but sometimes you have scars to consider in gums exposures during smiling of the patient. I would go in such cases with only one vertical incision, less visibility but better healing. Regards my friend!

Great presentation, Udatta!! Thank you.

Thanks Snjezana for your appreciation. I stand corrected. I ought to have said huge lesions are relative contraindications for PET. Not absolute.

Nice mini lecture,Udatta,I hsve enjoyed watching very much!I only disagree that huge periapical areas are contrandication for PET.We can prepare socket shield,graft the socket with dentin autogrsft, cortical tuberosity or allograft and come in 4 months to place an implant.

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 3 Premium Member Content

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 3
Immediate tooth replacement therapy has become a mainstream treatment modality for single tooth implants in the esthetic zone. The balance between achieving primary stability, implant diameter, and gap distance is a delicate dance yet essential for survival and esthetics. However, esthetic risks and complications exist such as apical socket perforation, loss of labial plate thickness over time, and loss of the interdental papilla due to proximity issues with tooth-to-implant distance following placement. An inverted body-shift implant design concept as solutions to these challenges will be presented and supported by studies that scientifically supports, validates, and reinforces the biologic principles in design that ultimately enhances esthetic outcomes in modern day implantology.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Clinical Investigation of an Immediate Load Protocol Using Axial & Tilted Implants to Treat Patients with Failing Dentition or Complete Edentulism
The clinical investigation evaluated a specific surgical/prosthetic protocol for full-arch fixed dental restorations supported by immediate loaded axial & axial tilted implants, as well as the verall prosthetic survival rate. Mid-study results confirmed that immediate loading of axial & tilted implants following the studied protocol provides a viable treatment modality for the rehabilitation of edentulous arches & terminal dentition.
