Summary:

As osseointegration of endosseous dental implants has become predictable and well-documented, the emphasis in dental- implant treatment has shifted from functional concerns to the achievement of long-term aesthetic results. An adequate alveolar bone base is the prerequisite for functional and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft-tissue architecture. This is true for both fixed partial denture (FPD) pontic sites and dental implant sites. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone width resulting from tooth loss, a ridge enlargement technique using osteotomes combined with soft-tissue manipulation may be utilized to facilitate proper implant placement and optimize the aesthetics of the final implant prosthesis. This article discusses the principles involved in proper application of this technique.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.

Predictability of Simultaneous Implant Placement in the Severely Atrophic Posterior Maxilla: A 9-Year Longitudinal Experience Study of 2,132 Implants Placed into 731 Human Sinus Grafts
Simultaneous implant placement into sinus floor grafts can be a predictable treatment option for patients with at least 1 to 2 mm of vertical residual bone height when careful case planning and meticulous surgical techniques are used.

Full Arch Implant Dentistry Utilizing the Easy Guide System (FAST Guide)
In immediate loading, the survival rate is often based on the follow-up of the osseointegration but without aesthetic appreciation. The main goal is to achieve osseointegration and aesthetic with long term stability. For this success, we need to obtain both, bone formation and gum thickness, as any failure in one of the 2 factors will induce the loss of the second factor. Several requirements must be met in order to obtain and to maintain them together for a very long time; -Biological requirements are linked to early vascularization (appreciation of the biologic level, growth factors, collagen environment) -Anatomical and surgical requirements will help for the best implant placement and positioning (fast guide, sub-crestal insertion, platform switching etc...) -Prosthetic requirements are essential for aesthetic as guidance for soft tissue design (rigid and screwed prvisional prosthesis)

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar with Dr. George Duello and Dr. Maurice Salma will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.
