Immediate Molar Replacement Utilizing Narrow Diameter Implants - Allowing Implant Placement in Almost Any Situation - Part 1 of 2

Description:
Immediate molar placement has been widely reported in the literature with excellent results. All the studies insist that a wide diameter implants are essential as they are the only way to achieve primary stability and are the only implants that can handle the forces that molar regions produce. But there are a number of problems with wide diameter implants. This presentation will dispel all these myths as well as show how narrow diameter implants can not only handle the forces but also make immediate molar placement more predictable and possible in almost all scenarios.

I really do appreciate this approach. Nice job Howard. Do you still approach the Molar in the same way? How would you suggest a novice in implant dentistry approach the area? thanks Maurice

Howard Gluckman - (2/26/2011 8:19 AM)

Thanks Michael. im also a stong believer. difficult to convinve others though. regards Howard

Hi Howard, great to see someone advocating this treatment modality, I have been utilizing this technique using only the intralift kit, hand expansion (no drills) and 3.5 ankylos for a couple of years I use a single type or combination of synthetic graft materials dependent on the site (no membrane) . I have even used it on two members of my family.

Sameh we always treat our cases with antibiotics preoperatively as per Carl Misches protocol in Implant Dentistry. they were all given a prophylactic dose of either amoxicillin or clindamycin 1 hr before and 6 hrs after. we did not immediately load or temporize any of the cases in the study if they were alone but did do 3 or 4 cases that were part of a full upper reconstruction. we did have stricter criteria for this though and this was a very thick furcation that completely covered the implant with bone. And they needed to have a turn in torque of at least 35Ncm. I have subsequently done some with immed provisionalisation but no loading. they have worked very well but also had the same criteria as mentioned above.

Hi Wleed. I am using the mectron 3 unit so I am using their implant preparation bits. I only move onto an ankylos drill if the base of the osteotomy bone 360 degrees to actually hold the drill without jumping around. this is most often the case as the furcation bone generally widens at the base. However i have just aborted a case right now where the abscess had eaten distally from the MB root and as a result had weakened and thinned the furcation not allowing me to get primary stability which is so critical in these cases. thanks for the comments.

sameh barsoum - (1/17/2011 6:28 AM)

thank you for the response. 2 more questions:
you mentioned apical radiolucency cases were included in the review. Did you treat them any differently like preop or post op AB?
Was there any of these cases immediatly restored with an abutment and a provisional crown?

Wleed Haq - (1/17/2011 4:47 AM)

Dear Howard, thanks for the presentation - I admire your innovative approach with the ankylos system. If using the piezo to start the osteotomy are you then progressing straight to the Ankylos A drill. Any reaming or tapping? Am I right in saying that you are using the large balance anterior healing abutments for transmucosal healing for your cases? Many thanks

Howard Gluckman - (1/17/2011 1:52 AM)

Hi Sameh thanks for the positive comments. The start of the pilot drill depends on the thickness of the bone. if the furcation is very thick then one can use a normal round drill or lindermann drill or any other system you wish. If however the bone is thin then I prefer the Piezo to do this as it is easy to make your holes without any cavitation at all. it makes a clean pilot hole without any risk of damaging the small furcation. with regards to packing the socket I generally mix only with blood. it is essential to use a periodontal probe to pack the bone as it quickly gets stuck in bottlenecks and thus leaves the apical areas without any bone. although this will most likely fill with the patients own bone I prefer to ensure a complete fill. I do not use PRP or PRF at all I have not yet found any great research to justify their use. PRP has all but been banned in a lot of the European countries as a result of the Bovine thrombin that has to be used that is why the prf is now being used as well as the fact that it is simpler to use. but the research for this use is scarce at best and I see no justification for it in my practice but others might disagree. It certainly cannot harm so if it works in your hands I see no reason not to use it. regards from sunny cape town

You know a speaker knows what he/she's talking about when they answer your questions before you ask.
Excellent presentaion indeed... thank you.
Just a couple of questions:
How do you start your initial dril into the furcation? spear bur, round bur? How dense/deep do you pack the sockets with the graft material? Do you mix the material with blood, prf, prp...?

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this presentation will enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. Long term follow up and evidence from scientific literature to support this concept will be described.

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique Premium Member Content

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique
This lecture is focused on an effective regenerative approach, but at low knowledge. The goal is to provide a new skill in favor of well-established techniques. The Fibrin Sealant (FS) is an additional clot of human origin. It has adhesive, sealant and inductive action stimulating hard and soft-tissue regeneration. The FS, mixed with bone chips and biomaterials, allows a better handling of the graft that, becoming plastic and moldable, adapts perfectly to bony defects without dispersion of granules. It’s effective also on wound protection achieving a faster healing of soft-tissue. This approach is excellent in the socket preservation and in the peri-implant regeneration on "closed" sites where the implants are inside the defects.

Just as "osseointegration" became synonymous with successful restoration of function in the fully edentulous patient during the 1980s, the term "implant site development" has become intricately associated in the 1990s with the techniques used to achieve esthetic results with implants in the partially edentulous patient. This article explores the roots of the concept of site development within the philosophy and principles of periodontal prosthesis. In addition, the myriad of techniques that are…

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration
Implant placement immediately after tooth extraction, followed by an immediate provisional restoration of a single dental implant, provides significant benefits compared with traditional delayed protocols. Patients are not burdened with cumbersome removable interim prostheses, osseous anatomy may be preserved, sulcular form is optimized before definitive restoration, soft tissue has matured before implant integration, fewer surgical interventions are required, and treatment time is accelerated.…
