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.

Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy Premium Member Content

Bridging Clinical Skills and Practice Success in Periodontics and Implant Therapy
Dental practice success requires a skill set with multiple facets, many of which fall outside of the clinical realm taught in dental schools and in many CE programs. This program is one a series that will address the "additional" skills and systems that are required to bridge clinical skills into practice success. The first skill set a successful practice must develop is an awareness of the major obstacles to patients accepting treatment and the systems that can be used to minimize those obstacles. Information from areas outside the dental profession can provide insight into the systems that can be used in dentistry to minimize case acceptance issues. The entire dental team needs to utilize the information in this program to get patients to support the optimal treatment options offered by highly skilled dentists.

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.

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.

Clinical and Esthetic Outcomes of the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol in the Anterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Clinical and Esthetic Outcomes of the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol in the Anterior Maxilla
A multicenter cohort clinical investigation evaluated the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with immediate placement and provisionalization in anterior extraction sockets. Following the surgical veneer grafting (SVG) protocol, a combination of a bone and connective tissue graft (CTG) was performed in 37 patients to compensate for the natural hard and soft tissue remodeling to achieve a sustainable and predictable esthetic outcome in patients with a thing gingival phenotype. The patients were followed for an average of 39 months (range of 10 to 58 months). At the four-year recall, 61% of the fixtures were evaluated. All 37 implants were successfully integrated, demonstrating stable and healthy peri-implant soft tissues as documented by standard clinical parameters. The results showed an average volume gain of 0.68 mm in the tissue zone, compared to the initial situation.

Progressive Bone Adaptation of Titanium Implants During and After Orthodontic Load in Humans
The aim of the present work was the evaluation of implant stability and periimplant bone reaction by histologic and clinical evaluation after therapeutic orthodontic loads. Forty-one adult patients received titanium implants as an orthodontic anchorage device; 12 patients received a retromolar or palatal implant to obtain tooth movement. Seven implants were removed at the end of the orthodontic therapy, after 2, 4, 6, and 12 months of orthodontic load, and processed for histologic examination. It…
