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.

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.

The Milled PMMA Prototype: The Key, To A Successful Milled Zirconia Implant Bridge
This presentation will demonstrate design and creation steps leading to a milled PMMA Prototype Bridge which is the key to the success of the final Milled Zirconia Implant Bridge. Full Arch Implant prosthesis vary from bars wrapped in acrylic to milled zirconia. All the types of prosthesis have a unique set of procedures to achieve the end result. With the advent of digital technology, and new high strength materials amazing results can be achieved. New challenges for the Restorative Dentist and Ceramist involve design of the smile, capturing an accurate replica of what is in the mouth, and creating a prosthesis that is functional and aesthetic with a goal to mimic nature in terms of the “Pink and the White”. Facial Aesthetics, Smile Design, Removable ,Fixed and Implant Prosthetics are all disciplines that require their respective skill sets to be merged to reach the final result.

Steps to Implant Dentistry
In most implant courses, they will talk about how you can do and what you need to do, but they should talk about who you need to be at first, moreover, methods and instructions are secondary; self development is primary to enter to the implant dentistry era, in this presentation Dr Dowlatsahi will talk about how you can prepare yourself and your teams for starting and developing your implant practice, then he will present an overview on treatment planning, sequence of treatment, case selection and assessment for an optimum implant treatment.

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.

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface Premium Member Content

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla
Following tooth extraction the implant surgeon may select between various implant placement timing and loading protocols. Ideally these are to be determined prior to extraction, be it immediate, early, or late placement. Immediate implant placement even in the aesthetic zone is a literature supported treatment modality with success comparable to alternative placement protocols. Meticulous restorative treatment planning of a tooth destined for extraction is essential. Selecting the appropriate implant and techniques may preserve and ensure natural aesthetics. Utilizing the patient’s own tooth crown can better provisionalize the implant with a ‘walk out as you walk in’ result.

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis
The aim of the study was to identify the different techniques of cementation (half filling, practice abutment, and venting) that will reduce the amount of retained cement and the effect of these techniques on retention of implant supported prostheses. The venting and practice abutment techniques are suitable methods of reducing retained excess cement with optimal retention values.
