The Reality of Anatomy and the Triangle of Bone The Reality of Anatomy and the Triangle of Bone

Author(s):

Scott D. Ganz, DMD

Date Added:

6/1/2006


Summary:

“Reality of Anatomy” is a concept developed by the author to describe the anatomical relationship between the tooth, the surrounding alveolar housing, the clinical crown, the root, and other important anatomy. Most textbooks, manufacturers’ literature, journal articles, and meeting presentations describe a relationship of the tooth to bone. These illustrations are acceptable in teaching the concept of crown-to-root ratio and are useful in describing certain procedures related to implant procedures. However, the crosssectional anatomical representation does not reflect the true relationship of the tooth root and its surrounding bone. When placing implants, it is important that clinicians have a clear understanding of the anatomical complex.

Suture Selection for Optimal Flap Closure and Tissue Healing
Suture selection is based on a knowledge of the physi cal and biologic characteristics of the suture thread in relationship to the healing process. In addition, accurate apposition of the flap is significant to patient comfort, hemostasis, reduction of the wound to be repaired, and prevention of unnecessary bone destruction. If flaps are not approximated and inadequate hemostasis is present, blood and serum may accumulate under the flap, delaying the healing process by separating the flap from the…

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants
Titanium endosseous implants have been increasingly used in various edentulous situations for well over a decade. Cigarette smoking has long been suspected as adversely affecting wound healing. Arteriolar vasoconstriction and decreased blood flow are seen in response to smoking. In the oral cavity,an increase in plaque accumulation,a higher incidence of gin-givitis and periodontitis,a higher rate of tooth loss,and an increased resorption of the alveolar ridge have been found among smokers.

Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants

Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives in all of medical science. Advances in the surgical and prosthetic components, implant designs and surface technologies, and imaging techniques have allowed for significant modifications to occur with respect to one- and two-stage surgical protocols, accelerating treatment times to the benefit of patient and clinician. This article presents a technique to improve surgical and restorative accuracy, allowing for predictable placement and immediate loading of implants through use of CT imaging, stereolithographic models, and CT-derived surgical templates.

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics Premium Member Content

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics
The achievement of an aesthetic implant-supported restoration is a constant challenge to the restorative dentist. Due to the circular shape of the implant and its smaller diameter, when compared to the root of a natural tooth, a dilemma inevitably occurs of how to construct an artificial crown that will imitate the natural tooth crown form. The appearance of the surrounding soft tissue is of major importance, and various techniques have been developed to guide its topography. The Marginal Migration Concept is a technique that helps the clinician in order to achieve a long-term predictable outcome in the Aesthetic zone by enhancing the surrounding tissues. The lecture will show step-by-step clinical procedures from diagnostic models through surgery with immediate provisional restoration therapy to the definitive restorations.

Immediate Implants: Science and Art - Part 1 of 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient.We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment Premium Member Content

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.
