The Milled PMMA Prototype: The Key, To A Successful Milled Zirconia Implant Bridge

Description:
This presentation will demonstrate design and creation steps leading to a milled PMMA Prototype Bridge which is the key to the success of the final Milled Zirconia Implant Bridge. Full Arch Implant prosthesis vary from bars wrapped in acrylic to milled zirconia. All the types of prosthesis have a unique set of procedures to achieve the end result. With the advent of digital technology, and new high strength materials amazing results can be achieved. New challenges for the Restorative Dentist and Ceramist involve design of the smile, capturing an accurate replica of what is in the mouth, and creating a prosthesis that is functional and aesthetic with a goal to mimic nature in terms of the “Pink and the White”. Facial Aesthetics, Smile Design, Removable ,Fixed and Implant Prosthetics are all disciplines that require their respective skill sets to be merged to reach the final result.

Maurice, Thank You a privilege to share what we have been doing. As far as long term concerns, I would say is to make sure to monitor the times the prosthesis is removed for inspection. I would change to fresh screws, say every 6 cycles. and always check torgue on the screws, Nobel prosthetic screws 15ncm for example. Hygiene still must be maintained by the patient, water pick, brushing the interface ceramic to the gingiva. Case planning very important and surgeon should strive for a nice flat contour so final prosthesis can adapt well to the tissue and food can can flow away easily and not be trapped. Maintenance is greatly simplified with milled monolithic zirconia, to hopefully just screw changes. Hygiene is as stated above. I would also monitor with a pano every 3-5yrs to eval bone around implants.

Innovative New Technique for Minimally Invasive Crestal Sinus Lift Approach
This webinar will describe the protocol for a trans-crestal sinus lift by using an innovative product called the Magnetic Mallet. This technique allows the clinician to perform a sinus lift and same time osseodensification with immediate implant placement, in an atraumatic and conservative fashion. Dr Baldi will describe the benefits he has seen in his daily practice as well as the additional opportunities in treating "everyday cases" with this magnetic dynamic technology.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.

Bio-Oss Collagen in the Buccal Gap at Immediate Implants - A 6-Month Study in the Dog
Following tooth extraction and immediate implant installation, the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes substantial bone modeling and the ridge dimensions are reduced. Five beagle dogs about 1 year old were used. The 4th premolar in both quadrants of the mandible were selected and used as experimental sites.The outline of the marginal hard tissue of the control sites was markedly different from that of the grafted sites.
