Hi, this video is not working anymore showing the system error

REALLY NICE PROCEDURE! I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW PLEASE WHAT VIDEO SYSTEM DID YOU USED TO RECORD THE PROCEDURE! ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHT SUTURE DID YOU USED TO HOLD THE CONECTIVE TISSUE GRAFT THANK YOU

Hey Paolo and Henry

You both make good points. I augment over 80% of the implants that I place and this requires me to elevate a flap. I attempt to get at least 3-4 mm of bone labial to the impalnts placed in the esthetic zone.

Great technique keeping the outer layer of tissue for primary closure. What a wound we made in the past ! Releasing the base of graft looks a bit difficult. Would an angled blade make this easier ?



An angled blade makes it easier. I have one that has been made for me by Hu Friedy It is an angled scapel. 10-130-05MS #5

Thanks Henry. I think the proof is in the pudding. Esthetically long term any buccal cortical bone resorption has bad effects. I have read that 2 mm provides greater long term support as well. I have placed many implants in thin ridges no wider than 2-3 mm at the crest, never raising the buccal periosteum. I am sure that my first follow up with crestal buccal disharmony may change my attitude and begin raising full thickness flaps with added augmentation as well. So far there hasn't been a problem. (Boy, I hope I just didn't jinx myself). I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in between ... Keep up the good work.

Hi Paolo! You make a good point about the vasculature and full thickness flaps. However, when treating a thin ridge, even with expansion, I find that usually I need to augment further to make sure I have approximately 2 mm thickness labial to the implant surface. This is needed, according to Grunder, Buser and others to create a more long-term stable environment. If that is the case, then a full thickness flap is the only way to access buccal augmentation appropriately. What do others think?

Paolo Giuliani - (4/7/2010 9:16 AM)

Great video. If the ridge was thin, and bone spreading was needed, raising the buccal periosteum is typically not advised so that you don't lose the 80% vasculature and about 0.5 mm of labial bone. Would you ever consider this procedure in a more fragile situation with thin ridge width?

Immediate Molar Implants: When, Why, and How?
Multi-rooted extraction sockets are often too large to accommodate a traditional diameter implant, therefore ultra wide diameter implants as a clinical alternative can predictably simplify procedures without compromising function and esthetics. Problems with use of traditional implants may include the ability to gain adequate primary stability, use of large amounts of graft material, and poor embrasure spaces causing food impaction. The focus of this lecture will highlight clinical rational to improve success, anatomical and restorative benefits of immediate placement, evidence-based outcomes reported in literature, and survival and success rates reported by the presenter. This lecture is intended for restorative dentists.

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla
Since the advent of osseointegration, the patient who is edentulous or soon to be edentulated has many options to prevent wearing complete removable prosthesis. In the maxillary arch there are anatomical features that may preclude patients successfully utilizing an implant prosthesis. Some of these include alveolar resorptive changes after extractions, pnuematized sinuses, hard and soft tissue palatal vault configurations, and bone exostosis with associated undercuts. Psychological, many patients suffer after the loss of teeth with loss of self-esteem and avoidance behaviors. This program will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures of the All On Four patient. In this webinar, Dr. Duello will build upon the material provided in previous presentations on DentalXP with detailed guidance on clinical procedures for the All On Four in the maxilla.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach

Diameter Selection of Implants Placed in Extraction Sockets: A New Approach
Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: This study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated implants placed in extraction sockets. This protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability of long-term results.

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration
Implant placement immediately after tooth extraction, followed by an immediate provisional restoration of a single dental implant, provides significant benefits compared with traditional delayed protocols. Patients are not burdened with cumbersome removable interim prostheses, osseous anatomy may be preserved, sulcular form is optimized before definitive restoration, soft tissue has matured before implant integration, fewer surgical interventions are required, and treatment time is accelerated.…
