Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal

Description:
To date, enhancement to implant surface technology has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Trabecular Metal has changed all that. This is because Trabecular Metal allows for true bone 'in-growth' rather than just on-growth. This webinar will highlight, in detail, this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols. In addition, techniques for immediate provisionalization of this implant will also be covered in an accompanying surgical video.

Very interesting

Henry, With this system I have found that the crestal threads allow for good stability in staged implant surgery and the apical threads provide for stability in immediate implant situations. Adequate insertion torque is something I feel strongly about and was initially concerned about with this implant. With some tweaking of the drilling protocol I have not found this to be the case.

Charles, I did get a tremendous amount of information on tantalum and it application to vitreous carbon while in Parsippany, NJ at Zimmer manufacturing plant but I am not sure of the exact method that the titanium is fused to the tantalum sleeve. I can say that I have found this implant to be as strong as the TSV implant and am only minimally concerned about galvanic reaction between these 2 very inert materials.

Hi Richard, my compliments on very nice presentation. I'm interested in knowing your thoughts conceptually on how the loss of threads, that would otherwise be in the area taken up by the trabecular metal, effects initial primary stability and early loading? thanks

Dear Sam, My experiences with the trabecular metal implant have all been favorable but I have not loaded any in 2 weeks. I leave all provisionals just out of contact in centric occlusion and excursions.

Sam Busich - (12/10/2012 1:18 PM)

Dr. Akin; Any follow ups on this new implant that you can provide for us? Radiographic changes, early loading responses. Do you feel that a 2 week load protocol is acceptable with the TM? thanks Sam

Richard,nice video. Immediate screw retained provisionals are ideal when possible. Do you know how the these trabecular metal implants are manufactured. It seems to me these implants are constucted with titanium and tantalum. I am curious how the two metals interphase (Strengh? galvanic reaction?). The Orthopedic trabecular metal components are only made of tantelum. I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Thank you again. Chuck

Richard Akin - (5/25/2012 12:20 AM)

Dear Mauricio, I think the risk of peri-implantitis is very low due to the tantalum surface being present along the body of the implant and not at the crest.

Richard Akin - (5/25/2012 12:17 AM)

Dear Alper, I am very optimistic about the application of this material to a dental implant. My early experience is positive and I feel that the 'ingrowth' versus 'ongrowth' component of these implants changes the discussion from BIC to bone incorporation. Clinically, my early success rates have been exceptional. More time and data is needed to determine how it performs under function.

Immediate Load Despite Extreme Maxillary Bone Loss with Zygoma Implants
Zygoma implants are an accepted alternative to bone augmentation in the posterior part of the Maxilla. The challenge of placing a Zygoma implant in a narrow Zygomatic bone, or even 2 implants in the same area, calls for a guided approach. The technique for making and using such a guide is shown in this concise lecture, along with a 4 zygomatic implant assembly operation.

The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement
During the last 20 years we have experience in Periodontics and Implantology a large amount of research and clinical cases that have aloud us to better understand how the Extraction and Implant Site behave. The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement goes to what we consider the most critical factors that influence our results in todays practice. The presentation goes through the evidence based alternatives and how this have changed with time. We also go through the Socket Shield alternative and present some of what we consider the future on this area will be.

CT Scan Technology

CT Scan Technology
Implant dentistry, one of the most predictable treatment alternatives offered to patients who are missing teeth can be enhanced by thorough pre-surgical diagnosis and treatment planning efforts by all members of the implant team. Conventional radiologic techniques including periapical and panoramic radiographs are limited by the two dimensional interpretation of existing hard and soft tissue. The inherent distortion factor can misrepresent bone topography in critical areas associated with vital anatomy or potential implant sites. Advances in diagnostic radiological techniques improved with the introduction of CT scan technology for dental applications. The enhanced diagnostic range of this evolving technology empowers the clinician with necessary tools to avoid potential complications associated with implant dentistry.

Anterior Extraction & Implant Placement in a Severely Deficient Site
Extraction and implant placement is a functionally predictable therapeutic modality. Esthetic predictability, however, can sometimes prove elusive. This is especially true for the implant replacement of severely compromised anterior teeth with hard and soft tissue deficiencies within the esthetic zone.
