Summary:

A growing number of clinical studies show that early (2 months) and immediate loading protocols may be predictable. However, they are based on clinical stability only. The aim of this case report was to document the osseointegration status of two Osseotite implants after 2 months of healing in soft bone corresponding to type IV and subjected to two distinct mechanical environments. A completely edentulous patient received a total of 11 Osseotite implants in the mandible. Six were immediately loaded to support a provisional fixed partial denture, and five were left submerged. After 2 months, two submerged and one immediately loaded implants were retrieved and processed for histologic analysis. All immediately loaded implants were clinically stable. One histologic section per implant was obtained. All implants achieved osseointegration. The bone-implant contact was 38.9% for the submerged implant and 64.2% for the immediately loaded one. In the marrow space, both implants were covered by thin, neoformed bone trabeculae. Osseointegration can be achieved after 2 months by Osseotite implants placed in soft bone in the mandible either when immediately loaded and splinted into a provisional denture retained on six implants, or when submerged and unloaded.

Immediate Occlusal Loading the Same Day or Day After Implant Placement
Immediate loading of endosseous implants is becoming a widespread therapeutic procedure for the rehabilitation of patients with edentulous jaws. The purpose of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the long-term success rate of endosseous implants placed in the edentulous lower jaw and loaded on either the same day of surgery or the next day. Nineteen patients were enrolled in the study. Eleven patients, accounting for 64 implants, received their provisional prosthesis the same day of…

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes & Soft Tissue Manipluation
An adequate bone base is usually a prerequisite for functionally and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft tissue architecture around a dental implant. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone width as a result of tooth loss, a jaw enlargement technique with osteotomes combined with soft tissue manipulation may be utilized to facilitate proper implant placement while concomitantly optimizing the aes thetics of the final implant prosthesis. The learning objective of…

The Science Behind the Papillae - Part 2 of 2
In 1992, Tarnow’s study on the effect of the distance from the contact point to the crestal bone on the presence of interproximal dental papilla gave us a new and ground breaking insight into the management of pink aesthetics. Later Team Atlanta furthered that study, analyzing the different measures between teeth, implants and pontics, giving us an even deeper understanding of how bone height influences in papilla growth. In my understanding, this study was one of the most important in the history of dentistry due to its true crossover between dental surgery and the prosthodontic field, combining aesthetics, oral rehabilitation and oral surgery in treatment planning. Never has interdisciplinary dentistry been more valued. This lecture will go over past and present techniques that can be performed to achieve an optimal aesthetic outcome in the managing of soft tissue.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

In this webinar presentation, Dr. Henry Salama will outline clinical protocols to facilitate efficient, successful and predictable application of immediate loading protocols for single unit replacement as well as fully edendulous patients. Dr. Salama will utilize research data on bone biology and biomechanics around implants to suggest treatment planning parameters for well organized team logistics and clinical management of both surgical and restorative protocols to minimize risk factors and optimize successful outcomes. In addition, Digital imaging, CAD/CAM and temporization will be especially emphasized.
