Good presentation concerning the "DENTAL DOMINO" game we've all played.

giuseppe 122 - (2/1/2013 9:54 AM)

every day i see good bridge and bad implantology; every day i use implant in my patient and sometimes bridge

Good presentation of a worse case scenario. What about a properly treatment planned FPD that takes into account a proper occlusal scheme and design.

Sam Busich - (1/2/2012 12:35 PM)

I am amazed. It is a simple overview of a more complicated diagnostic process. Made more for patients then for clinicians. I have used it to show my patients the "potential" downside of avoiding implants especially in patients with a genetic predisposition to decay or perio disease. Thank you Dr. Salama

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New? Premium Member Content

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New?
The Socket Shield technique is a “new” procedure with 10 years of documented successful cases worldwide. Lately we have done some new proposals like the way we extract the lingual slice, the relation of the shield level to the bone, the use of miniflaps, the distance between implant and shield just to mention some. On the other hand, the only minor “problem” with this technique is the “external shield exposure” and here I propose the method of successful treatment. We will see the convenience of applying SS to molars also on the light of the paper of Dr. Mataraso from 2009. The molar SS is a viable alternative rather than ridge preservation techniques.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, immediate loading by pre-computer-aided/pre-prepared temporary bridge areas will be discussed.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants
Precise fit between dental implants and the superstructure is important for the long term success of implants and implant-supported prostheses. One factor which may influence the accuracy of the definitive prosthesis is the stability of the impression coping in polymerized impression material. In some circumstances, an implant must be placed well below the gingival margin, meaning that most of the impression coping will also be situated subgingivally with no contact with the impression material. This can result in reduced stability of the impression coping, allowing it to rotate when fastening the implant analog. This article describes a simple technique that involves the use of a roll of composite resin, tray adhesive, and a small amount of occlusal registration material applied around a transfer coping in a direct implant impression.
