Thank you David. Excellent presentation on the use of implants for the Fully Edentulous patient with Guided Surgery and CBCT planning. Additional space for restoration is also highlighted here. great job. Dr. Salama

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

Immediate Loading in Implant Dentistry – Coherent Clinical Application in Everyday Practice
In this webinar presentation, Dr. Henry Salama will outline clinical protocols to facilitate efficient, successful and predictable application of immediate loading protocols for single unit replacement as well as fully edendulous patients. Dr. Salama will utilize research data on bone biology and biomechanics around implants to suggest treatment planning parameters for well organized team logistics and clinical management of both surgical and restorative protocols to minimize risk factors and optimize successful outcomes. In addition, Digital imaging, CAD/CAM and temporization will be especially emphasized.

Cortical Tenting Grafting Technique in the Severely Atrophic Alveolar Ridge for Implant Site Preparation

Cortical Tenting Grafting Technique in the Severely Atrophic Alveolar Ridge for Implant Site Preparation
Tenting of the periosteum and soft tissue matrix using a cortical bone block maintains space and minimizes resorption of the particulate allograft volume. In addition,bridging the cortical blocks with particulate bone avoids unaesthetic ridge defects between cortical block grafts in larger ridge defects. The result was a more uniform and esthetic alveolar ridge, capable of maintaining an implant-supported prosthesis. The technique offers predictable functional and esthetic reconstruction of large volume defects without extensive amounts of autogenous bone. This of- fers a superior functional and esthetic result than with either cortical or particulate grafting alone.

Facial Development, Continuous Tooth Eruption, and Mesial Drift as Compromising Factors for Implant Placement

Facial Development, Continuous Tooth Eruption, and Mesial Drift as Compromising Factors for Implant Placement
The replacement of teeth lost by children because of trauma can be an important indication for early implant therapy. Osseointegrated dental implants, like ankylosed teeth, alter position as growth-related changes occur within the jawbones (displacement, remodeling, mesial drift). Facial growth of the child and even of the adolescent, as well as the continuous eruption of the adjacent anterior teeth, create significant risk of a less favorable esthetic and/or functional outcome. For patients with…

Clinical Outcome of Submerged vs. Non-Submerged Implants Placed in Fresh Extraction Sockets

Clinical Outcome of Submerged vs. Non-Submerged Implants Placed in Fresh Extraction Sockets
The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcome of submerged vs. nonsubmerged tapered implants placed into fresh extraction sockets. The results showed statistically significant differences between the two groups in the mean value of keratinized tissue (KT) height after surgery that was significantly reduced for submerged implants when compared with transmucosal implants. Similar outcomes were found for submerged and non-submerged implants placed in fresh extraction sockets with a horizontal peri-implant defect smaller than 2mm, except for a reduction of KT in the submerged group. Either with a submerged or a nonsubmerged procedure, 1mm of mean soft tissue recession is seen after 1 year when compared with the pre-extraction situation.
