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.

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 Implants: Partial / Full Arch Rehabilitation & GBR - Part 2 Premium Member Content

Immediate Implants: Partial / Full Arch Rehabilitation & GBR - Part 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient. We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

The Reality of Anatomy and the Triangle of Bone

The Reality of Anatomy and the Triangle of Bone
“Reality of Anatomy” is a concept developed by the author to describe the anatomical relationship between the tooth, the surrounding alveolar housing, the clinical crown, the root, and other important anatomy. Most textbooks, manufacturers’ literature, journal articles, and meeting presentations describe a relationship of the tooth to bone. These illustrations are acceptable in teaching the concept of crown-to-root ratio and are useful in describing certain procedures related to implant procedures.…

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.
