Digital Patient Specific Implant Abutment Options for Optimum Periodontal and Esthetic Results

Description:
The evolution of Implant Therapy is at the point of uncompromised clinical results when available technologies are appropriately applied. The restorative clinician working in concert with their laboratory can successfully achieve extraordinary results on a routine basis. The various abutment materials and design parameters will be illustrated by review of clinical / laboratory case studies. Restorative material options will be discussed with a focus on optimum long term clinical performance. New long term provisional technology will also be explored. Cementable and screw retained indications and contra-indications will be reviewed as well as approaches to “problem case” solutions.

Great stuff and a few clinical pearls as well, thanks so much for sharing.

Mario Marcone,
Thanks,
1. No stock component compares to customization with a provisional. The real advantage of the Ankylos system when the appropriate sulcus former is utilized is the creation of an "ovate" receptor site for the abutment and restoration. It is indeed a very nice average for the development of the soft tissue.
2. The fabrication of those types of screw retained provisionals is not yet part of the Atlantis portfolio. At this stage we scan with 3 Shapeand mill them from PMMA resin.
Regards, David

R. Terry Councill,
Hi Terry,
In either location the idea is to creat the optimum abutment / restoration interface relavent to the implant position. Ideally the clinician communicates the tissue depth allowing reproducable modification of the cast to idealize the emergence. The more aggresssive the adjustment, the more passive the abutment should be.

Layla Al Hamati,

Thank you very much

Athanasios Ntounis669,
Unfortunately not.

Dr. Salama,
Intra-0ral is ideal but limited to a few capture systems partnering with limited implant manufacturers. As open architecture becomes more commonplace this arena should benefit efficiency and accuracy like nothing before seen.
3 Shape benchtop scanners offer open architecture for the laboratory to partner with numerous production options.

Hello David, thank you for this nice presentation. Doing soft tissue contouring with a provisional becomes very customized to the particular case and the clinician has total control. Do you think that the Dentsply Ankylos healing abutments can do better or "as good as", or are they merely a very good time-saving "average" solution, as compared to custom contouring with provisionals, especially for the esthetic zone. And one more question, does the Atlantis technology have the potential to fabricate custom screw-retained provisionals, for example for a multi-unit prosthesis, with Soft-Tissue Adapt options for the provisional. Warmest Regards, Mario

R. Terry Councill - (7/31/2013 9:54 PM)

I have most always ordered the full anatomical dimension design without necessarily contouring the tissue with a provisional. How would you alter this consideration in the posterior region and again in the anterior region? Thank you. Excellent Priceless Pearl!

Great presentation. Thank you

CBCT Planning and Guided Implant Surgery - Surgical and Restorative State-of-the-Art
Implant treatment is one of the most exciting areas of dental therapy. Within the last 30 years, we have been able to develop and discover new techniques, instruments, software and equipment that have made this therapy more secure and predictable, such as the CBCT and the guided surgery, today with the guided systems we are able to have our implants “in the right” place considering the bone, the prosthesis, the biomechanics and the esthetic…this lecture will show you step by step how to reach awesome results in complex full arch cases in a secure and simple way even with immediate extraction and immediate implant placement.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides

Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives for partially and completely edentulous patients. The initial excitement about successful osseointegration has allowed clinicians to offer an extended set of treatment alternatives that include single tooth replacement to full mouth reconstruction. Pioneering protocols of the early 1980s relied on a two-stage surgical approach that allowed for the biological aspects of osseointegration to be achieved at the cellular level, insuring long-term success. These procedures often required extended periods of time to complete. Through strategic marketing and word of mouth, demand for implant-related treatment continues to grow and has compelled clinicians to search for new and improved methods to deliver such care within a shorter time period without sacrificing accuracy. As treatment protocols have progressed...

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
