Tecnología Revolucionaria en Material de Implantología Dental: Metal Trabecular

Description:
Hoy, el realce en la tecnología de la superficies de los implantes ha sido evolutiva mas que revolucionaria. El metal trabecular ha cambiado esto. Esto es debido a que el metal trabecular permite un verdadero crecimiento hacia dentro del implante a diferencia de sobre el implante. En este webinar mostraremos en detalle, esta nueva superficie de implantes, así como la provicionalización de este implante, acompañado de un video quirúrgico.

Questions & Comments

Henry, With this system I have found that the crestal threads allow for good stability in staged implant surgery and the apical threads provide for stability in immediate implant situations. Adequate insertion torque is something I feel strongly about and was initially concerned about with this implant. With some tweaking of the drilling protocol I have not found this to be the case.

Charles, I did get a tremendous amount of information on tantalum and it application to vitreous carbon while in Parsippany, NJ at Zimmer manufacturing plant but I am not sure of the exact method that the titanium is fused to the tantalum sleeve. I can say that I have found this implant to be as strong as the TSV implant and am only minimally concerned about galvanic reaction between these 2 very inert materials.

Hi Richard, my compliments on very nice presentation. I'm interested in knowing your thoughts conceptually on how the loss of threads, that would otherwise be in the area taken up by the trabecular metal, effects initial primary stability and early loading? thanks

Dear Sam, My experiences with the trabecular metal implant have all been favorable but I have not loaded any in 2 weeks. I leave all provisionals just out of contact in centric occlusion and excursions.

Sam Busich - (12/10/2012 1:18 PM)

Dr. Akin; Any follow ups on this new implant that you can provide for us? Radiographic changes, early loading responses. Do you feel that a 2 week load protocol is acceptable with the TM? thanks Sam

Richard,nice video. Immediate screw retained provisionals are ideal when possible. Do you know how the these trabecular metal implants are manufactured. It seems to me these implants are constucted with titanium and tantalum. I am curious how the two metals interphase (Strengh? galvanic reaction?). The Orthopedic trabecular metal components are only made of tantelum. I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Thank you again. Chuck

Dear Mauricio, I think the risk of peri-implantitis is very low due to the tantalum surface being present along the body of the implant and not at the crest.

Richard Akin - (5/25/2012 12:17 AM)

Dear Alper, I am very optimistic about the application of this material to a dental implant. My early experience is positive and I feel that the 'ingrowth' versus 'ongrowth' component of these implants changes the discussion from BIC to bone incorporation. Clinically, my early success rates have been exceptional. More time and data is needed to determine how it performs under function.

Richard Akin - (5/25/2012 12:03 AM)

Dear Matthew, The PEEK plastic abutment is a prefabricated abutment made of a highly inert material. It is my preferred abutment due to its ease of use.

Soft Tissue Grafting Around Compromised Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Dental implant esthetics can be challenging, but these challenges are magnified when a patient has had multiple failed implant and bone grafting surgeries.  This video demonstrates the treatment of one such case.  This is a surgical video demonstrating the VIP-CT (Vascularized Interpositional Connective Tissue) graft.  While multiple treatment options exist, this start-to-finish video highlights the patient's initial presentation, the surgical technique, and the final outcome at 2 years.

CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

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

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 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.

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants
Titanium endosseous implants have been increasingly used in various edentulous situations for well over a decade. Cigarette smoking has long been suspected as adversely affecting wound healing. Arteriolar vasoconstriction and decreased blood flow are seen in response to smoking. In the oral cavity,an increase in plaque accumulation,a higher incidence of gin-givitis and periodontitis,a higher rate of tooth loss,and an increased resorption of the alveolar ridge have been found among smokers.

Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides

Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives for partially and completely edentulous patients. The initial excitement about successful osseointegration has allowed clinicians to offer an extended set of treatment alternatives that include single tooth replacement to full mouth reconstruction. Pioneering protocols of the early 1980s relied on a two-stage surgical approach that allowed for the biological aspects of osseointegration to be achieved at the cellular level, insuring long-term success. These procedures often required extended periods of time to complete. Through strategic marketing and word of mouth, demand for implant-related treatment continues to grow and has compelled clinicians to search for new and improved methods to deliver such care within a shorter time period without sacrificing accuracy. As treatment protocols have progressed...
