Very nice presentation by Dr. Becker.¡¡ These cases also work very nice flapless but with bone expanders (manual expanders) instead of burs because of the control you have with them over the motorice expanders, although very technique sensitive¡¡ You have to palpate bone while using the expanders and I have found that instead of using cilindrical implants as in the presentation conical implants work very nice¡¡

Donald, I would agree. Not all things can be disussed and covered by the lecturer and that is why this forum is so valuable. For doctors to have an area to continue the discussions after they see the presentation.
I would agree, there remains many possible issues with immediate placement into an extraction site. Attached gingiva is one, gingival recession, a narrowing of the ridge and possible labial bone dehiscence are others.
I prefer a flap with grafting both inside and outside the socket when placing implants especially in the "esthetic zone".

I have used this technique on many occasions and have found it easy not only on myself but on the patient as well. but the limitations of the technique are not discussed at all. ie lack of attached tissue being most common.

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.

Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner - Part 2
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials. These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.

Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy
When considering implant therapy in the esthetic zone, replicating the natural soft tissue frame may present challenges for the treating clinician. A harmonious gingival form and architecture are not only fundamental for achieving adequate peri-implant pink esthetics, but also for simulating a natural emergence for the future restoration. This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.
