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

interesting presentation what about the dentium implants they have a similar connection to the ankylos ?thank you

george dirani - (11/17/2013 2:37 PM)

What size anterior sulcus former you find yourself using mostly whether for maxilla or mandible? I know the abutment have to be the same size as the sulcus former. Do you approximate or there is a rule you go by? thank you

Howard Gluckman - (11/8/2013 3:25 PM)

Hi George I need to clarify one thing. the only reason the Ankylos works here is because there is a morse taper connection. You cannot use narrow implants with short cone connections like Strauman or Nobel Biocare implants. It has to be a true morse taper like the ankylos. You also cannot use the internal or external hex Implants as the micro motion will lead to failure of the abutment implant interface. thanks for watching and your comments. keep them coming. regards Howard

Hi Benjamin I am very familiar with the megagen implant system and use them extensively. I have used the EZ plus as well as the rescue which I think is a great implant. I mostly use th Anyridge now. The implant is definitely ideal for this kind of treatment in fact it has one thing better is that it works in conical root as well as in furcations as one can use the wider diameters of the anyridge which does not work well with Ankylos. You can use the 4mm for the immediate implant placement and also works well. The only negative is the drills are more aggressive and as a result you get more chatter and have to remove more bone but it does work well with the 4mm Anyridge and I have used it often. I hope this helps. regards Howard

Great work Dr. Gluckmam. Implant companies say that narrow diameter implants are not recommended for the posterior region and you just proved them wrong. Very interesting.

Benjamin Saidel - (11/4/2013 6:22 PM)

Hi Howard fantastic results ! I also use EZPlus Internal by Megagen as noted by John Sullivant(8/4/2012). The narrowest in this system is a 3.3 mm implant then 4.0, 4.5 and 5 . It has an internal trip connection with platform switching. Do you know this implant system and is it suitable for immediate placement as you have described in your presentation? Are you aware of the rescue or any ridge implant by Megagen ? Benjy ( wits grad)

@Jan-Stefaans Unfortunately you cannot use the bicon implant for this of therapy as you need to have an implant that has a thread not fins. the Bicon has to be tapped into place and one generally needs the threads to allow easy placement of the implant in the furcation bone. One may be able to use it in specific areas especially where you have a thick furcation. But as soon as you try to tap an implant in it will take the path of least resistance

Jan-Stefaans du Plessis - (10/16/2012 6:12 AM)

What about Bicon implants, would you use the as well in this cases?

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist Premium Member Content

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to biomechanical demands bone augmentation can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Disadvantages of bone augmentation techniques include increase morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has develop towards treatment approaches that avoid bone grafting including shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. This presentation will look at various bone augmentation techniques, methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting versus non-grafting approaches.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

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…

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.…

Linear Tomography in Conjuction with Pantomography in Implant Assessmnet Sites
Tomography provides a three-dimensional unobstructed and anatomically accurate picture of the region being viewed. Tomography is a radiographic technique in which a "slice" or section of a given internal body structure is imaged in a pre-determined plane. The advantage of utilizing a tomographic evaluation along with a pan tomographic survey is that the clinician may examine the exact position or depth in all three planes of visualization. This radiographic modality can also reveal the quality and…
