Summary:

Patients are advised to maintain oral health in order to enjoy function and the natural appearance of their dentition for a lifetime. In the event that oral health becomes impaired, clinicians are capable of restoring it through either conservative or sophisticated treatment modalities. This treatment must be based on sound, rationalized clinical evidence and a clear understanding of the biological and physiological processes involved. Dental professionals must also acknowledge their personal limitations and be willing to consult and collaborate with colleagues to solve problems prior to and during patient treatment. During the course of daily practice, clinicians may be confronted with clinical situations that at first sight might appear extremely difficult to solve. In these cases, the challenge for the operating team is to find the simplest, least invasive yet most predictable manner to restore proper health to a particular patient.

Maintaining Interimplant Crestal Bone Height Via a Combined Platform-Switched, Laser-Lok Implant/Abutment System: A Proof-of-Principle Canine Study
Interimplant papillae are critical for achieving esthetic implant-supported restorations in the maxillary esthetic zone. Stable papillary anatomy, however, depends upon a stable volume underlying crestal bone for support. Multiple studies have documented a critical interimplant distance of 3mm under which crestal bone resorption occurs. This preclinical proof-of-principle canine study examines a novel implant-abutment system design, combining platform switching with precisely configured laser-ablated abutment and implant microgrooves to maintain interimplant crestal bone at interimplant distances of 2 and 4 mm. Results of this initial preclinical study suggest that it is possible through precise implant/abutment design modifications to place adjacent implants at distance of 2 to 4 mm without inducing subpapillary crestal bone loss.

Immediate Loading of Osseotitie Implants-After 4 months

Immediate Loading of Osseotitie Implants-After 4 months
A growing number of clinical reports show that early and immediate loading of endosseous implants may lead to predictable osseointegration; however, these studies provide mostly short- to mid-term results based only on clinical mobility and radiographic observation. Other methods are needed to detect the possible presence of a thin fibrous interposition of tissue that could increase in the course of time and lead to clinical mobility. A histologic evaluation was performed on two immediately loaded…

The Replacement of Small-Diameter Teeth in the Esthetic Zone Using Narrow-Diameter Implants

The Replacement of Small-Diameter Teeth in the Esthetic Zone Using Narrow-Diameter Implants
The lack of bone available for the surgeon as well as the lack of restorative space available between the adjacent teeth makes tooth replacement with implants challenging for both the restorative dentist and the laboratory technician.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional Premium Member Content

Implant Therapy Within the Esthetic Context: Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition for sub-optimal esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly; including scenarios where tooth preservation may be the preferred alternative. Provided that an immediate implant placement and provisionalization technique is utilized, single tooth implant sites without soft or hard tissue defects offer the most potential for predictable esthetic outcomes. This presentation will feature a comprehensive description of the protocol currently utilized at the University of Pennsylvania’s Periodontal Prosthesis program, including a discussion of the treatment rationale and technique considerations.
