Keys to Successful Implants within the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2

Description:
In this first of a two part presentation, Dr. Michael Sonick outlines the keys to successfully placing implants in the anterior region. This section emphasizes the need for precise treatment planning so that proper 3-dimensional implant positioning can be achieved. A detailed understanding of the mesial-distal, buccal-palatal and incisal-apical surgical positioning of dental implants will be explored.

Questions & Comments

I agree with Dr Salama. The papilla sparing incision is one that I do not use very frequently for it leads to papilla compromise via a loss of blood supply as well as scaring as Maurice pointed out. The key for papilla is the bone. If you have the bone and the contact point is in the correct place you will have the papilla. Mike Sonick

Maurice Salama - (5/7/2011 1:47 PM)

Simon; Unsure about Dr. Sonick's response but I personally do not like the "papilla saving" incision. I feel it is over utilized and often restricts blood supply to the flap and forces the surgeon to graft and place the membrane over the incision line. It often causes scar formation which could be a negative in the esthetic zone. Dr. Salama

Dr Sonick,why you do not recommend papilla saving incision?I have attended a course focusing on soft tissue management recently and the lecturer who was a periodontist was actually recommending this type of flap design.

Jeffrey,

This presentation focussed on the needed biologic concepts in order to idealize the placement of implants. I specifically utilized long term follow up in order to demonstrate long term follow up and to demonstrate the longevity of the results when biologic principles are followed.

Today - many of us are focused on the "new and improved". Fact is biology has not changed in the last 30 years. I learned from many of my teachers, Tarnow, Garber,Abrams, Kramer, and many others that as long as biologic prinicples are followed, success will usually occur.

I graft with Connective Tissue when i want to augment the soft tissue. In this presentation, my attempt was to try and use Guided Gingival Growth to enhance soft tissue without having to do a connective tissue graft.

Today, I frequently graft with bone e.g. BioOss and a membrane at the time of initial implant surgery in order to increase the volume buccally. This is called a contour graft and has been described by Danny Buser.

I hope that helps. Connective Tissue Grafting can be done at any of the following times:

1. prior to implant placement
2. At the time of implant placement
3. At the time of second stage surgery
4. Post second stage surgery

Personally, I prefer 3. at the time of second stage surgery if CTG is to be done.

Hope that helps.

Dr. Salama;
I disagree, the images and cases did not appear to support some of the concepts offered. I have seen Dr. Sonick lecture and enjoy his videos on XP but the comments made were fair in this case.
Sam

Maurice Salama - (11/19/2010 9:22 PM)

Jeffrey; It appears to be a lecture aimed at concepts and perhaps not as much a review of current surgical techniques.

Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: The two camps in this debate are both adamant that their technique is the best and that theirs will give the patients the best long term aesthetic result. Is the literature and available data definitive on this matter? Is the choice really clear for clinicians? This presentation looks critically at the literature and attempts to give clinicians a more flexible approach to immediate and delayed implant placement. Critical surgical guidelines and clinical pearls will be offered for both types of treatment as well as the management of some of the complications that may arise from immediate or delayed implant placement.

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and marginal bone level change would exist between axial and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival between rehabilitation's supported only by axial implants or by a combination of axial and tilted implants.

Comprehensive Management of Implant Anchorage in the Multidisciplinary Patient

Comprehensive Management of Implant Anchorage in the Multidisciplinary Patient
In recent years, dental implants have become an accepted method of replacing missing teeth. Today millions of implants are placed annually to rehabilitate and reestablish patients’ occlusions. However, in many of these individuals, the teeth may be in less than ideal position to accept the integration of single implants or groups of implants with the remaining teeth. Many of these patients could benefit from orthodontics to reposition malposed teeth to enhance the overall occlusal scheme. However,…
