Platform Switching Research and Clinical Decisions in Implant Therapy - Part 1

Description:
This presentation by Dr. Alan Fetner, a periodontist from Jacksonville Florida, discusses how he utilized a retrospective analysis of his clinical results to confirm his decision to utilize a platform switch implant design combined with subcrestal placement to optimize and stabilize osseous and esthetic soft tissue levels.

Kym Stock;
Always place head of implant depth related to facial/buccal bone height and not the interproximal. 2-3mm is an average below the future margin of the gingiva. Yes, that is more depth interproximally especially in highly scalloped cases.

Kym Stock - (6/19/2010 7:51 PM)

When claculating depth of the fixture in a highly scalloped bone case, do you calculate the amount of sub osseous depth for fixture placement from the facial/buccal bone height or the interproximal bone level (which will obviously be deeper).

Do you often see bown growth over the cover screw when utilizing 2 stage approach with subcrestal implants?

Nice lecture, Thanks to Dr Fetner. I am curious to know that platform switching is the only method to prevent marginal bone resorption for two stage subcrestal placed implants? Do u think platform switching goes well or prevention of micromovement plays more important for inhibition of crestal resorption?

Immediate Implant Provisionalization: A Critical Aspect in Tissue Care and Esthetics-Part 1 of 2
The management of the hopeless tooth or an edentulous span in the Estheitc Zone is amongst the most clinically demanding procedures in tooth replacement do to the demands of tissue preservation and patient management during the healing phase. As important as the implant surgical process in these areas is the role of the immediate provisional restoration. A step-by-step protocol will be presented in how to fabricate the proper screw-retained provisional restoration from the fabrication of the acrylic shell to managing and capturing the proper supportive subgingival contour.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy Premium Member Content

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants

Use of Stereolithographic Models as Diagnostic & Restorative Aids for Predictable Immediate Loading of Implants
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives in all of medical science. Advances in the surgical and prosthetic components, implant designs and surface technologies, and imaging techniques have allowed for significant modifications to occur with respect to one- and two-stage surgical protocols, accelerating treatment times to the benefit of patient and clinician. This article presents a technique to improve surgical and restorative accuracy, allowing for predictable placement and immediate loading of implants through use of CT imaging, stereolithographic models, and CT-derived surgical templates.

Immediate Placement of Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis

Immediate Placement of Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Systematic Review and Pooled Analysis
Research interest on immediate placement of dental implants has shifted from implant survival toward optimal preservation of soft and hard tissues. The aim of this study is to systematically assess the condition of implant survival, peri-implant hard and soft tissue changes, esthetic outcome, and patient satisfaction of immediately placed single- tooth implants in the esthetic zone. A pooled analysis was performed to identify factors associated with survival and peri-implant tissue changes after immediate implant placement. Immediate placement with immediate provisionalization of dental implants in the esthetic zone results in excellent short-term treatment outcome in terms of implant survival and minimal change of peri-implant soft and hard tissue dimensions.

Influence of a Nanometer-Scale Surface Enhancement on De Novo Bone Formation on Titanium Implants

Influence of a Nanometer-Scale Surface Enhancement on De Novo Bone Formation on Titanium Implants
In this prospective randomized controlled clinical study, small titanium implants were placed in posterior maxillae for the purpose of assessing the rate and extent of new bone development. Nine pairs of site evaluation implants were placed in posterior areas of maxillae and retrieved with trephine drills after 4 or 8 weeks of unloaded healing. The amount of bone in linear contact (%) with the implant surface was used to determine the osteoconductive potential of the implant surface. Implant surfaces…
