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".

Donald Trunkey - (10/7/2008 11:55 PM)

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.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - Labial Contour Grafting at the Time of Immediate Placement
Until recently, tooth replacement at compromised sites in the aesthetic zone, required long-term treatment with possible undesirable complications in the tissue architecture. The Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) is a technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. In this way, tissue losses with varied extensions are reconstructed in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and keeping predictability on aesthetic aspects. The IDR, which advocates minimally invasive procedures, will be presented as a viable and reproducible alternative.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Mandibular Edentulism: All On Four For The Mandible Premium Member Content

A Treatment For The Prevention of Mandibular Edentulism: All On Four For The Mandible
Mandibular edentulous patients can be some of the most difficult prosthetic patients to treat successfully. Tongue and vestibular movements during function can dislodge the denture, arch forms may demonstrate poor anterior/posterior spreads, and severe resorption of the mandible can lead to mental nerve involvements with unstable denture bases for effective chewing patterns. Fixed dental prosthesis stabilized by osseointerated implants are an effective treatment option for patients who have lost their mandibular teeth.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.

Osseointegrated Titanium Implants for Maxillofacial Protraction in Monkeys

Osseointegrated Titanium Implants for Maxillofacial Protraction in Monkeys
Titanium implants were placed surgically into the maxillary, zygomatic, frontal, and occipital bones of four pigtail monkeys. After a 4-month healing period, the implants were exposed and abutments were placed. Extraoral traction appliances were then attached to the abutments. The cranial implants were used to support the framework of the traction appliance; those in the facial bones were used to attach springs that delivered a protraction force. The application of force varied among animals. In animal…
