Reverse Engineering and Optical Scan Technology in Implant Dentistry

Description:
In this clinical video, tooth replacement of maxillary canine is performed utilizing CBCT technology for pre-assessment of the osseous ridge form followed by incisionless transmucosal implant placement with a Ritter Implant. This allows us to Optically Scan with a 3 Shape unit the stable Soft tissue form, occlusion and implant position using a scan body on the Ritter Spiral Implant System prior to any surgical incision is initiated. This information is sent off to the lab for final abutment milling and provisionalization at 3 days. Surgical entry and bone regeneration utilizing PRGF is performed last to allow for tissue shaping with the provisional restoration.

Sir, you have used metal currete to remove the granulation tissue and there is contact of the metal currete with the bone. Most of the implant companies recommend that plastic currete should be used for curretage. Any comment on that?

Great approach! When post extraction socket is filled with PRGF you don't need to wait three months for bone healing and soft tissue healing is great. I didn't see in video what kind of regeneration was done after extraction.

Thanks Mohammed, Vijayanand, Dhruv and Ashutosh. I appreciate the kind remarks. We are pushing forward to provide efficiency and predictable treatment results to all our patients. Thanks again Dr. Salama

Great presentation ..

Ashutosh Agarwal - (1/3/2017 9:27 AM)

Excellent concept, thinking and observations.. granulation tissue is not at all a issue...

Maurice Salama - (9/29/2015 11:03 AM)

Felipe; I can understand your uneasiness towards this approach....we heard the same when we started to immediately load implants 30 years ago. Remember, the implant was placed into a healed ridge 3 months after extraction of an over retained deciduous tooth. Granulation tissue is not necessarily granulomatous or infected tissue and can contain early healing tissues and provide for osteoid formation. regards Dr. Salama

Felipe Cáceres - (9/28/2015 10:29 PM)

Totally agree with Enrique Reinprecht. You install the implant in a ridge with a bone defect with lots of granulation tissue. Too complex for an easy case

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.

An Evidenced-Based Approach to Extraction Site Management Premium Member Content

An Evidenced-Based Approach to Extraction Site Management
Once a decision is made to extract a tooth, clinicians have a decision to make; delayed management – i.e. extract and wait, immediate implant placement or a staged approach – i.e. graft and wait. This presentation discusses the evidenced based decision making process for this endeavor. Emphasis is placed on classification of extraction sites and risk assessment as a guide to customizing the treatment protocol for the clinician as well as the patient.

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.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Implant Site Preparation with Motorized Bone Expanders
The osteotome technique has been utilized for many years as a viable approach to expand atrophic ridges. Despite its effectiveness, the mechanical impact from the surgical mallet is not well tolerated by patients. Additionally, reports in the literature describe postoperative complications that include concussions and benign paroxysmal vertigo. These conditions can be alarming for the patient and clinician, as their effects may persist for several weeks. A new technique for atraumatic ridge expansion…

Linear Tomography in Conjuction with Pantomography in Implant Assessmnet Sites
Tomography provides a three-dimensional unobstructed and anatomically accurate picture of the region being viewed. Tomography is a radiographic technique in which a "slice" or section of a given internal body structure is imaged in a pre-determined plane. The advantage of utilizing a tomographic evaluation along with a pan tomographic survey is that the clinician may examine the exact position or depth in all three planes of visualization. This radiographic modality can also reveal the quality and…
