Microgeometry of Implant Surfaces - Part 1

Description:
Dr. Jack Ricci, Associate Professor and Masters Program Director of Biomaterials Science at New York University, discusses the science behind the Laser-Lok microchannels surface in implant design. This presentation is critical to understand the biology that is behind the soft tissue-implant relationship in the critical zone of the subgingival dentistry. Implications to tissue health, integrity and stability are detailed especially as they impact the clinician.

Andres; Interestingly, that idea is already being done by Biohorizons offering the laserlok technology on their abutments.
good ideas.
regards
Dr. Salama

why no combine all three advantage in one implant system? an implant with morse cone conection like ankylos, and the neck of the abutment with microchannels for soft tissue suport? why not use the microgrooves technology in the first parts of the abutments?

Maurice Salama - (1/2/2009 6:40 AM)

Implant Microgeometry, Microgrooves offer mechanical loading effeciencies , laser microchannels offer biological affinity for certain types of cells, platform switching offers reduced artificial materials in the subgingival arena and possible alteration of the biological remodelling that occurs at the prosthetic connection, one piece unibody implants offer the advantage of no microgap.
What do the members of XP think is most important?

Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol: Step-by-Step Utilization in the Esthetic Zone
In the surgical part, it will be described the criteria necessary for successfully utilizing minimally invasive protocols within the esthetic zone and the possibility of placing or not placing a bone graft in the “gap” and the opportunity to use a connective tissue graft to overbuild the site bucco-lingually, performing the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol, idea'ed by the Agnini brothers.

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Prosthetic Management of Implants with Different Osseous Levels
The osseointegrated implant has become a standard treatment with a high degree of predictability for patients missing one or more teeth. It is especially recommended when the patient has a clear medical history and normal bone levels in both width and height in the edentulous areas. In constant search for improvement, clinicians find themselves looking into every element relating to the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth: existing bone structure, surgical technique, implant placement, implant…

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.
