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.

Interdisciplinary Dynamics of Complex Therapy: An Integrated Approach to Treatment Planning
This presentation challenges and guides clinicians to ask, and answer, fundamental questions that are required for designing successful treatment plans when facing complex cases. 1) What do I know (DIAGNOSIS), 2) Where do I apply it (EFFICACY), and 3) When do I apply it (SEQUENCE OF THERAPY). A special emphasis in this presentation will be placed on communication between team members, including clinicians, staff and laboratory. Methods of communications, such as digital design and mock-ups are also highlighted as part of an integrated approach to Treatment planning.

Implant Esthetics: Recognizing Pitfalls and How to Avoid Problems
In this Webinar on Implant Esthetics, Dr Stanley describes the "No Half Smiles" philosophy that he practices. An emphasis is placed on both the clinical and technical requirements necessary for delivering consistent successful esthetic results in everyday practice. In addition, several techniques are demonstrated to make patient management through this process more efficient. As Dr. Stanley states" the challenges of getting it right are many but avoiding complications is vital to the success of our daily practice.

Suture Selection for Optimal Flap Closure and Tissue Healing

Suture Selection for Optimal Flap Closure and Tissue Healing
Suture selection is based on a knowledge of the physi cal and biologic characteristics of the suture thread in relationship to the healing process. In addition, accurate apposition of the flap is significant to patient comfort, hemostasis, reduction of the wound to be repaired, and prevention of unnecessary bone destruction. If flaps are not approximated and inadequate hemostasis is present, blood and serum may accumulate under the flap, delaying the healing process by separating the flap from the…

Management of Retrograde Peri-Implantitis by Apical Resection and Guided Bone Regeneration in Adjacent Maxillary Implants

Management of Retrograde Peri-Implantitis by Apical Resection and Guided Bone Regeneration in Adjacent Maxillary Implants
Retrograde peri-implantitis (RPI) is defined as a clinically symptomatic periapical lesion that develops shortly after implant insertion while the coronal portion of the implant sustains a normal bone-to-implant interface. A 61-year-old male was screened and evaluated for three maxillary anterior implants placed 10 years previously. Evaluation included a thorough periodontal and dental exam, radiographs, and cone-beam computed tomography. Probing depths around all implants ranged from 2 to 4 mm with no bleeding on probing/mobility. The apices of implants #8 and #9 exhibited radiolucencies, and a draining fistula was associated with implant #8. Treatment consisted of sectioning and removal of the affected portion of the implants and collection of a specimen for histopathologic examination. Resection of the apical portion of implants is a viable treatment modality in the management of RPI.

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.
