Customized Provisional Abutment and Provisional Restoration for an Immediately-Placed Implant Customized Provisional Abutment and Provisional Restoration for an Immediately-Placed Implant

Author(s):

Gerard Lemongello, DMD

Date Added:

Summary:

The use of immediate implant placement and immediate provisionalization techniques are paramount to the maintenance for aesthetic hard and soft tissue structures. This is particularly important when implant-supported restorations are utilized in the aesthetic zone. A purpose of the custom-fabricated provisional abutment and restoration is to guide the hard and soft tissue response during healing. This case presentation depicts the prosthetic technique used by the author to create the final tissue contours and emergence profile for the final restoration.

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants
As patient demand increases for more natural restorations in the esthetic zone, clinicians must have the highest level of skill and knowledge to maintain or reform the interdental papilla between teeth, between implants and teeth, and between adjacent implants. To date, there are no reports that have measured the distance from the contact point to the bony crest between implants. One reason for this may be the fact that, with two adjacent implants, the contact point of the crown can be established at any distance from the gingival margin according to the restorative dentist's specifications. Therefore, in this study, the height of the soft tissue to the crest of bone was measured between two adjacent implants independent of the location of the contact point. The purpose of this study was to determine the range and average height of tissue between two adjacent implants.

Controversies in Modern Implant Therapy; Lasers and Immediate Loading
The biological basis for clinical applications of Lasers and Immediate Loading will be discussed and and protocols for clinical applications will be demonstrated. Protocols for soft tissue management, treatment of peri-implantitis with lasers and the positive effects of the loading forces on the bone will be used in order to accelerate treatment in Implant dentistry.

Soft Tissue Grafting Around Compromised Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Soft Tissue Grafting Around Compromised Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Dental implant esthetics can be challenging, but these challenges are magnified when a patient has had multiple failed implant and bone grafting surgeries.  This video demonstrates the treatment of one such case.  This is a surgical video demonstrating the VIP-CT (Vascularized Interpositional Connective Tissue) graft.  While multiple treatment options exist, this start-to-finish video highlights the patient's initial presentation, the surgical technique, and the final outcome at 2 years.

The 10 Year Evolution of Guided Surgery, What We Have Learned From our First Patients
The initial NobelGuide protocol was developed and completed in 2003 for the first series of treated North American edentulous patients. The 10-year clinical results from this initial patient group treated with implant placement and immediate loading via a fixed prosthesis, now provides insights into what have we learned from the evolution of guided implant treatments to ensure and improve surgical and prosthodontic treatment outcomes.

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique Premium Member Content

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique
This lecture is focused on an effective regenerative approach, but at low knowledge. The goal is to provide a new skill in favor of well-established techniques. The Fibrin Sealant (FS) is an additional clot of human origin. It has adhesive, sealant and inductive action stimulating hard and soft-tissue regeneration. The FS, mixed with bone chips and biomaterials, allows a better handling of the graft that, becoming plastic and moldable, adapts perfectly to bony defects without dispersion of granules. It’s effective also on wound protection achieving a faster healing of soft-tissue. This approach is excellent in the socket preservation and in the peri-implant regeneration on "closed" sites where the implants are inside the defects.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Mandible Edentulism: All On Four For The Mandible Premium Member Content

A Treatment For The Prevention of Mandible Edentulism: All On Four For The Mandible
Mandibular edentulous patients can be some of the most difficult prosthetic patients to treat successfully. Treatment options for the mandibular arch range from two implants and an overdenture to multiple implants with full arch fixed style prosthesis. This webinar will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures utilizing four implants and a screw retained fixed prosthesis in the mandible, the All On Four technique. In this webinar, Dr. Duello will build upon the material provided in previous presentations on DentalXP with detailed guidance on clinical procedures for the All On Four in the mandible.
