Optimizing Tissue Esthetics of Single Tooth Implants

Description:
The most critical factor in achieving exquisite esthetics around single tooth anterior implants is management of the gingival tissues. Beginning with treatment planning and evaluating the existing tissue and bony architecture we can set the stage for success. With optimized planning, precise placement of the fixture, and the use of laser technology to reduce tissue trauma we can minimize the bone and tissue changes during the surgical phase. During the restorative phase creation of proper tissue contours using the CO2 laser and control of tooth form to position tissue set the stage for obtaining optimal esthetic results.

Maurice Salama - (3/5/2014 8:59 AM)

Great presentation on how to manage the prosthetic shaping of the implant phase which is crucial to optimal esthetic success. Easy to understand. Thanks Dr. Salama

Paul Boulos - (9/11/2012 6:53 AM)

i would like to know if possible to use a soft tissue laser for flabless surgery instead of tissue punch. it might be better healing time and less bleeding. what is yo comment on that thanks

Danny O'Keefe - (8/29/2012 12:52 PM)

Great, I just showed your presentation to part of my staff, hygenists and assistants. they help present this info to patients, help in every step of the procedure. They understood, liked and received some new ideas. Thanks

Sam Busich - (8/29/2012 9:05 AM)

Darrell; The video plays well for me. Excellent instructional aspects and simplifies the details of provisionalization. many thanks Sam

Darrell French - (8/28/2012 3:31 PM)

why couldnt watch video it show me message say the video currently not available and error code ve_ pd _notfound

Island Mak - (8/16/2012 11:17 AM)

It will be better if we can watch more photos how the speaker doing the provisionals to the patient.

Osama Abdel Qader - (8/16/2012 7:21 AM)

very nice but as always the presentations must be shorter , about 30 mnts not more ,, it is very difficult these days to buy enough time . thank you

SHARDUL SONTAKKE - (8/15/2012 11:14 PM)

A good presentation.Thank you

Maxillary Molar Extraction and Immediate Implant Placement with Crestal Sinus Lift
Atraumatic maxillary molar extraction via root sectioning followed by hydraulic crestal sinus lift and immediate implant placement. Sinus lift performed at interradicular area with sinus membrane elevated approximately 3 mm with specialized kit using saline injected through osteotomy. Hydraulic pressure gently raises the sinus membrane without risk of perforation.

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

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy? Premium Member Content

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.

Bone Grafting of Previously Used Symphysial Donor Sites for Onlay of Newly Formed Bone and Reharvesting Potential Symphysis Revisited:Clinical and Histologic Evaluation
Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. The use of intraoral block bone grafts from intraoral sources has increased over the years. Possible sources for autogenic bone are the calvarium ,tibia,and the iliac crest(frequently used for major jaw reconstruction).However,these sources are not always recommended because of their morbidity,altered ambulation,and the need for hospitalization,as well as significant resorption associated with corticocancellous block grafts from endochondral donor sites.
