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?

Team Expectations When Restoring the Full Arch: Technology and Clinical Challenges
Full Arch restorations has always presented it self with clinical and technical challenges, from working in the clinic with the patient to the laboratory bench and to the need for improved communication between the involved team members . With the speed that the technology has improved so has the way we diagnose, treatment plan and restore the the full arch patient, what hasn’t changed is the sound prosthodontic principals. This lecture will highlight some of the clinical challenges, materials and the protocols needed to meet the expectations of the TEAM to deliver a successful outcome.

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy
There is often some degree of atrophy in sites planned for implant placement. An array of therapeutic options is available for implant placement in sites with vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible and tilted implants. Short implants have been systematically evaluated as an alternative in sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes comparable to standard-length implants. Decision making for selection of appropriate therapeutic modality for sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy has to consider many theoretical, surgical and prosthetic considerations. Surgical and prosthetic guidelines will be provided for application of short implants for posterior sites with limited vertical height.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

The 10 Year Evolution of Guided Surgery, What We Have Learned From our First Patients
The initial NobelGuide protocol was developed and completed in 2003 for the first series of treated North American edentulous patients. The 10-year clinical results from this initial patient group treated with implant placement and immediate loading via a fixed prosthesis, now provides insights into what have we learned from the evolution of guided implant treatments to ensure and improve surgical and prosthodontic treatment outcomes.

Computer-Generated Abutment Using A Coded Healing Abutment: A Two-Year Preliminary Report
This article presents a preliminary clinical evaluation following the placement of 107 dental implants covered with computer-coded healing abutments. The healing abutment system evaluated herein provided information to specific computer software that facilitated the delivery of an anatomical definitive abutment. This system also assisted in the development of a titanium abutment whose characteristics mimicked the natural contours of the teeth being replaced. A two-year postoperative evaluation was performed to evaluate occlusion, gingival integrity, contact areas, inflammation, food impaction, porcelain integrity, radiographic condition and overall patient satisfaction. Improved tissue response and resultant aesthetics were observed.
